Candy Corn

I like Bottle Caps & Lemon Heads too

I like to eat the candy corn in sections. From tip to base, of course.

El_Cadejo's avatar

anyone else make shapes with their candy corn before they eat them? I like to put a bunch of them next to each other until they make a big circle of sugary doom.

Candy corn, God help me. I used to bite the white parts off, eat the orange middle first, then the white tops, and last the tiny white tips.

I also loved those wax teeth with liquid in them.

Smarties
Gosh I hope you didn’t just find a stashed bag…..

Dum dums, the lollipops

Mary Janes and Bit-o-Honey. Cherry or lemon flavored Tootsie Rolls aren’t bad either.

marinelife's avatar

@AstroChuck It is a miracle I have teeth after Bit-o-Honey. How about Chick O Stick?

AstroChuck's avatar

Never was much for Chick O Sticks. I always lliked Abba-Dabas, though.

@Boffin I second the Smarties. Once I start I can’t stop….

AstroChuck's avatar

ooh, I forgot Smarties! How could I have done that? Lemonheads were the worst.

Root Beer Barrels. I think they are long gone now though.

@cprevite: root beer barrels are still available…I have a half of a bag and I just popped one in your honor. Smarties are my favorite but candy corn is a close second. I still have an unopened box of Lemonheads, if anyone is interested.

I love Swedish Fish!

Allie's avatar

iJimmy: I love Swedish Fish too, but only the red ones.

AstroChuck's avatar

Boston Baked Beans were pretty lousy. I don’t remember Swedish Fish coming in anything other than larger bags. I never got them for Halloween. What do any of you think about Circus Peanuts?

iJimmy's avatar

Now days you can get Swedish Fish individually wrapped for Halloween. Circus Peanuts are nasty. More than one is too much sugar and makes me sick instantly.

Allie's avatar

AstroChuck: I’ve seen Swedish Fish in small bags before. It’s like a bag of three fish.

AstroChuck's avatar

I guess the cheese stands alone with the Circus Peanuts. I used to love them. I don’t eat them anymore as I’m vegetarian. (they contain gelatin.)

Allie's avatar

You’re not alone. My uncle can eat a whole bag and wish he had more. I can eat about 3 and then I’m good.

peedub's avatar

I’m a fan of the wax grill.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@astrochuck i loveeeee circus peanuts.

cookieman's avatar

@whattheflutther: Oooh. Where did you get your Root Beer Barrels. I’d love to find them again (only 1 a week though as I’m diabetic).

@AstroChuck: I was always disappointed by Boston Baked Beans (being from Boston and all). And Circus Peanuts ARE yummy.

Now we need a thread on Penny Candy Stores.

whatthefluther's avatar

@cprevite: this is the ebay seller I buy from, although there are many others: root beer barrels

Impressions's avatar

Candy corn! Also Boston Baked Beans, Circus Peanuts, and Bit O Honey

AstroChuck's avatar

Good – anything licorice flavored. Bad – popcorn balls.

bluemukaki's avatar

Candy Corn, although I live in Australia and we don’t really celebrate Halloween, so Candy Corn is rare but oh so tasty! We have an import store and I always buy some when I can.

writerini's avatar

Lemon heads, Wonka goodies, sour stuff.

jj2ocean's avatar

Brachs candy corn and pumpkins

positive_hearts's avatar

Out of my average Halloween candy haul, aside from the regular candy like Reese’s and Snickers I really like the non-chocolate flavored Tootsie Rolls.
