    Candy Question

    I bought some bags of asst candies for an upcoming retreat. I got to thinking about which ones would I eat first second and third. LOL I guess you could say which ones are my favorites?

    so here is what I decided:

    1. Tootsie Rolls
    2. Black Licorice
    3. Milky Way
    4. Hershey's with almonds
    5. Bit o Honey


    so what are your first 5 favorite candy choices???

    Peanut butter cups, peanut butter cups, peanut butter cups, peanut butter cups and peanut butter cups. Not trying to be funny, I'm being honest. Candy isn't one of my "big things" but pb cups, that's a different story.

    chocolate, PBCups, chocolate covered anything, licorice, jelly stuff like orange slices and then more chocolate.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Except for black licorice - yes to all of the above. But I also like various hard candies. When I sew I don't want to touch anything like chocolate - so butterscotch drops - peppermints - Jolly Roger candies - and suddenly I want to run to the store and buy a variety.

    Oh and those orange slices - don't let me sit next to them I would eat them one after another until they are gone - I have no resistance.

    California has a chocolate store called See's Candy. My favorite and of all time is the butterscotch squares.
    2. Marshmallow/Carmel chocolates
    3. Butterfingers
    4. Turtles.
    5. Chocolate raisins.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Well, first would have to be DeBrands (local candy maker) truffles, any flavor. Then next would be any chocolate with or without almonds, then Twix.

    Cool

    i'd do about the same as you, only change the order a bit:
    1. black licorice (or Good n Plenty) 2. Symphony chocolate bar 3. Milky Way 4. Tootsie Rolls 5. Butterfinger candy bar
    Oh, yummers!

    Edited to add: I agree with Jan about needing this topic! Trip to the store, anyone?

    When my kids were young, I would let them eat pretty freely from their Halloween candy for a week or so, and then I'd toss it out, thinking they'd have grown tired of it. Turns out my daughter was saving her "best till last," and I chucked out all her best stuff, lol.

    I felt bad, but honestly, I thought who thinks like that when it comes to candy? She sure didn't get that from me!

    I don't like candy, and being diabetic that is a good thing, but just don't mention to me about brownies, warm, soft, perfect brownies....I said don't mention them didn't I? Lol! i decided that when I was told that I was diabetic, that I would chose one treat to keep, and give up the rest except for once in a blue moon. My A1c is perfect, so I will keep eating my occaisional brownie, and DH and the neighbors enjoy when I make them since I "force" them to eat the leftovers. Lol!

    I have eaten chocolate from all over the world and have found none as good as good old American Hershey bars. That is my first choice followed by Peppermint Patty's, Milky Way. 5th Avenue and Mounds.
