For many parents, Halloween is the most tiring holiday. Christmas is a close second, especially if you are traveling. Costumes, parties, parades and trick or treating do take a toll on parental units. I mean, really, I could just go to the local Walgreens and buy all this same candy at 75 percent off the next day, right?
However, children will be children and just as I had my Halloween, I try to give my children the same. This year I have Gandalf, an 80s rock diva and a Black Knight to usher from house to house. And since Daylight Savings Time is kinda late the year, it’s going to be dark early. But…..I get to be Nick Fury!!
But let’s focus on the FUN!!!!
I’m not a huge candy eater, but there are some candies that I cannot resist!
Nerds – Pink and Purple
I love these crunchy, tart, tiny pebbles of pure sugar and artifical coloring. It’s like eating sweet rocks.
I don’t know about this new left/right Twix campaign, but Twix has it all, cookies, chocolate and caramel. They’re just plain great.
Any chocolate/mint combo will do, really, but York Peppermint patties are the best. They’re not as pepperminty as I remember, but still, the combination of dark chocolate and white mint can take your breath away.
I need to stay away from these, but I can’t. They’re the candy that makes you work for it. The thick, gooey caramel is enough to pull a few fillings out, I bet (I’ve been lucky so far), and the chocolate is sufficient. So good!
Haribo Gummy Bears
No other brand will do. Haribo has the flavors and the perfect texture of gumminess to be just right. I love ’em!
There you go! Do you agree or do you have your own personal favorite? Leave them in the comments!
