Favorite Halloween Candy
Oct 25th, 2023 at 7:48pm
 
    It's that time of year again.  Halloween is upon us.  What would you like to get in your trick or treat bag?
     M&Ms are my favorite candy.  The regular chocolate ones are OK, peanut is better, almond is better yet, the best is macadamia.  The problem is that you only see macadamia M&Ms once in a blue moon.  If you ever see them buy them all.  They are heavenly and it might be decades before you see them again. 
    Besides that I'm good with any chocolate candy or candy bar.  Reese's, Mounds, Three Musketeers, Snickers, Mars,  etc.  They're all fine to me. 
     I don't care much for hard candy or licorice.  I can live without Twizzlers.  When I was a kid we'd sometimes get fruit.  That's like getting clothes for Christmas.  A total rip off.  Then weirdos started putting razor blades and other stuff in apples so people stopped the fruit, thankfully.
     Many people hate candy corn.  I like it a lot. 
      So what do/did you hope to get for trick or treat?

Great question but really hard for me to answer. I think it depends on my mood. Now if you said Easter its easy- Cadbury Creme Eggs. Loved them since I was a kid.

If I had to choose one I dont think you can go wrong with Kit Kat. But you have to eat it correctly. You cant just chomp down. Theres a process.

Never saw that one.  I'll have to keep a lookout!  For M&M'S I really love the Coffee Nut ones too.

I'm good with any of the major candy bars.  A usual grab for me though is Whatchamacallit.  I also like the TAKE 5 a lot.  I've always been a bigger fan of the chocolate stuff over fruity stuff.

I like pretty much anything, but if I had to choose, I'd go with 100 grand.

Same. I don't know how people can dislike it. It's practically just sugar and dye.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

I haven't seen them for thirty or forty years.  I just did a web search.  I found one Facebook link from 2010 that mentioned them.  Someone's husband had taken a trip to Hawaii and came back with them.  But the old link was dead.  They are rarer than hen's teeth.  As I said, if you see them buy them all. You might never see them again.
