Hot Tamales are one of the few non-chocolate/gummy candies that I can remember adults taking an interest in. An for good reason: these tasty treats give you a tantalizing tingle on the tip of your tongue… Okay, enough with the t’s. Seriously though, Hot Tamales combine spicy cinnamon with gummy goodness in such a way [...]
I am not a fan of the Butterfinger, but it’s such a quintessential trick or treating item that I didn’t feel right leaving it out. There’s really nothing good to be said of the Butterfinger… it’s too sweet and to crunchy. It’s like airy peanut brittle, which may be what they’re going for and may [...]
I’m salivating profusely as I type this… the mere thought of caramel + crispies + chocolate is drool-inducing. In my opinion, this is one of the finest candy bars man has ever made. It’s the prefect combination of chewy and crunchy. If only they’d start making a dark chocolate 100 Grand, life would be complete.
I ate Twix pretty much daily from the time I was 11 to 13. I had Cookies and Creme Twix. I had Chocolate Fudge Twix. I had Peanut Butter Twix. But the classic Twix always has been and always will be the Chocolate Caramel Twix.
Snickers is the perfect example of a candy bar in which the ‘fun size’ or mini version is better than the full size candy bar. Fact!
Snickers is a genre-buster. It’s one of the few candy bars made for adults (anything with nuts is going to automatically turn some kids off) that still appeals to [...]
Just seeing that wrapper sets my teeth a-grinding. There’s no other gum quite like the Dubble Bubble: it’s rock hard, but softens to almost goopy consistency with a little elbow grease (or would it be jaw grease?) and saliva. Incredibly sticky-sweet, with that mega potent bubblegum flavor.
I’m not sure exactly what it was about Dots that made them so appealing. They’re essentially gum drops minus the sugar coating… and what kind of candy is good minus the sugar coating? But if I didn’t get at least one (pathetically small) box of Dots during an outing of trick or treating, I considered [...]
One of the classic Halloween treats.
I went through an anti-nut phase, so I used to detest the combination of peanut butter and chocolate (and yes, I know peanuts are actually legumes- bitch, please!). Even though I got a ton of them and wouldn’t eat them, they were [...]
