Back in the day, my favorite candy was anything chocolate. My next door neighbor used to give me Zingers which was nice. I also liked the sugar candy: smarties, nerds, jawbreakers. My least favorite was the candy corn and taffy.



Now days, I like the new hershy Smore bars.

Ick. Those are my pick as well. Those are the ones that, when it came to "trade" candy at home, went into the trashcan.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol

Those, and candy corn. I think candy corn is nasty.



My favorite is Smarties. The urban legend about ground glass in Smarties has always worked in my favor, because other people give me theirs. ^_^

I actually always liked the peanut butter kisses...of course, I was the little brother, and my older brothers and sisters traded away the stuff I wouldn't like to help me out - ya know, the chocolate stuff. They had me completely convinced that peanut butter kisses and the other junk stuff was the bomb.

My favorite was always anything chocolate. I liked smarties a lot, too.



I hated getting taffy.

Oh yeah, those pumpkin ones are gross too. The ones that are like candy corn, except pumpkin-shaped.



Actually I'd rather have homemade roasted pumpkin seeds than any Halloween candy... pumpkin seeds taste more like Halloween to me.

I absolutely love candy corn. I have to find vegan ones this year because I simply cannot go without. Hmm, I really can't think of a candy I don't like.

I...um...dislike most candy. My sweet tooth is defective. I do like some chocolate but only plain. Oh and I did like kit kats. That's why i never really tirck or treated. I prefer to go somewhere for Halloween.



I absolutely HATE candy corn though. Ughh..

I don't like boughten pumpkin seeds as well as ones I roast myself. Maybe because I leave on a little bit of pumpkin pulp, and I can spice them how I want.



I had butternut squash the other day and roasted the seeds... they were so good!

Wow, this thread is making me want pumpkin seeds REALLY badly, I'll have to go buy some.



Favorite Candies-anything that I can get that's vegan! Espescially those Mary Jane thingies with the PB.



Least Favorite-Resses cups because they're too tempting for me to eat and Fritos. Crazy people who give out Fritos! :shakes fist:



But on the topic of candy corn...I FOUND SOME THAT WAS VEGAN OMG. I thought it couldn't be done, but it has been! They came from this chocolateer place, I forget where. But I bought some of the candy pumpkins because I love thosem (only they taste like oranges it's not the same) and there was vegan candy corn. Accidently vegan. I was like OMG OMG!

I love your basic, old fashioned candy corn...none of the new fangled candy corn for me...just the regular orange/white and yellow ones.

My mom used to give away these little orange cards you could buy instead of candy. You could get a free small fry, ice cream cone, stuff like that. All the kids hated coming to my house on Halloween because of it. More for me. Instant gratification for others meant lots of free ice cream cones from Zesto for me!
