Favorite (and Least Favorite) Halloween Candy


Recommended Posts

What is/was your favorite candy to get when you went Trick or Treating?

That is, when you got your giant "haul" of candy, what was the one thing you really wanted, or traded for with siblings or friends?

Parents, what candy do you steal from your kids bags? (Okay, maybe not steal, but "test" for them? You know you do it!)

What's your least favorite candy that you try to trade off, or just toss when you see it in your bag? (No rocks, Charlie Brown)

My favorite is Twix, usually. Skittles too.

As far as my least favorite, I don't do nuts, so Baby Ruth and Snickers are out, but I could at least trade those for things that I liked.

When it comes to candy that nobody wanted any part of, I'd have to say it's whatever these things are:

Not sure who went to the store thinking these looked like something kids wanted, but they should be wiped from the earth.

I also don't like Bit-O-Honey's or these guys:

Frisch's pumpkin pie, nuff' said! Usually I just snack on my own candy that I buy from Target or other places, like Brach's Candy Corn, and Sour Patch Kids. My least favorite is any licorice candy.

For me, All candy was created equal, my taste buds don't discriminate.

Looking forward to passing out candy, and eating even more. Though sometimes I wish more kids would take that candy before I'd eat it. Darn limited stomach capacity...

The one good thing about GatorGirl having a peanut allergy... ALL REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS ARE MINE!!! (well, I do have to share them and all other nut candy with Mrs. Gator, but still...)

My least favorites have always been lollipops and Jolly Ranchers. Those were always the last things left in my bag as a kid, and those are the things I won't sneak from GatorGirl's bag now. Anything else that she has more than two of is fair game to me though!

Ah man I love those things (the orange and black wrapped candies)! They are like peanut butter chews or something, but I really do like them. I also really liked Bit-O-Honey when I was a kid too and still do. I remember going to the store and buying it. Maybe I'm just weird and like candy no one else likes lol. However, some of my favorites also included Milky Ways and 3 Musketeers! And screw the "bite sized" candy bars, give me the whole thing! LOL

My favorites would be anything consisting of chocolate and nuts (using the word "nut" very loosely) - Reese's cups, peanut M&M's, Almond Joy, and the old formulation of Mr. Goodbar. (Sadly, the latter is now "mockolate" instead of chocolate, as Hershey replaced cocoa butter with vegetable oil)

I usually get a large bag from Costco and simply pick my favorites out for me to enjoy. (Mean, I know.)

My favorite Halloween candy is definitely Airheads, while my least favorite Halloween candy has to be the notorious "Mary Janes". I mean seriously, how could you possibly call that 'candy'? It's terrible! Bleh... :wacko:

I hate "Mary Janes" too....I think that they are horribly nasty....

Does anyone on here remember "Marathon Bars" They were like DNA-shaped, chocolate-covered caramel ropes. They were too huge for beggar's night, but there was one lady in my trailer park up in suburban Detroit who would give us one of those, and one "Ike" dollar coin.

The all-time fave was Boston Baked beans in the little boxes. Pure gold. :wub:

The all-time least fave for me was the tooth-bending, individual Bazooka Joe gum, with stupid comics and gum that I swear could be used as reactive armor on a tank! <_<

My son was diagnosed with a peanut allergy earlier this month and I was pretty bummed about it... UNTIL NOW! (Still pretty bummed, but I can drown my sadness with chocolate covered peanut buttery goodness.) :)
