It’s a moving target, frequently white chocolate, dark chocolate, gummy bears, licorice and bubble gum.

It depends on my mood. Sometimes I like chocolate (KitKat, Hershey’s, Almond Joy). Sometimes I like licorice (Good n’Plenty, Australian licorice). I’m not big on candy so I usually don’t have it around.

See’s damn near everything. Their Bordeaux and Butterscotch make my eyes roll back with delight.
In the easily acquired category, I love Chunky and a simple Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar.

Another vote for See’s chocolates — particularly dark chocolates.

I’m not fond of sweets and almost never eat candy. But, I do like those little, red Swedish Fish and can polish-off handfuls. The perfect combination of sugar, corn syrup, red dye, and artificial flavor…all the important food groups.

Hands down for me, it’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

For my last meal prior to execution, I’ll have about 50 of those, and an ice-cold gallon of milk (whole milk, not that 1% or 2% crap….)

Oh! And Butter Rum Lifesavers.

I like milk chocolate covered caramel with walnuts from Sees Candy. I think they’re only in California. I like lots of other “chocolates” they have too.

Lately I’ve been craving Kraft caramels, you know the cellophane wrapped squares that you melt for making caramel apples. I just like to eat them right out of the wrapper.

I also like Snickers bars and Butter Rum Nips Candy

And malt balls and Werther’s hard butterscotch candies.

cookieman's avatar

Ooh, Malted Milk Balls too.

PullMyFinger's avatar

@Kardamom Oh, man….whoever came up with those Werther’s butterscotch things deserves some kind of special prize (if they haven’t already been given it ).

On many long-distance road trips, they are my best friend.

jca's avatar

Sometimes just some Lifesavers.

Chocolate covered peanuts.

filmfann's avatar

When going to Michigan, we would always bring See’s for the family there.
I have no idea why they haven’t gone national.

Kardamom's avatar

@kritiper Oh yes, peanut clusters!

@PullMyFinger yes, the Werther’s people really did make candy crack with those butterscotch candies.

@filmfann I wonder why not either. When I was little, the only time I ever got them was on Valentine’s day. They were a luxurious treat. My parents would get my brother and I each a heart shaped box with Sees candy. I just assumed Sees was everywhere. My best friend worked at Sees for one year when she was in college. She said she actually got sick of them. I can’t see that ever happening. A few years back, I found out that when a woman becomes of a certain age, these weird, out of the blue cravings start. I was Jonesing so bad for Sees bridge mix, that I hadn’t eaten in probably 40 years, that I drove 40 miles, to the nearest Sees candy store to get some.

Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate

rojo's avatar

^^ that is @ucme‘s current housemaid

stanleybmanly's avatar

@Stinley the great catastrophe for me was when I learned the hard way that Cadbury had discontinued their milk chocolate/hazelnut bar. I think it was the contamination downwind from Chernobyl that irradiated the hazelnut crop in Turkey causing a world wide shortage and skyrocketing prices. I understand that currently Turkey is undergoing some sort of crisis with the nuts and prices are once again climbing toward the roof. Better begin hoarding the NUTELLA now!

Bonomo Turkish Taffy. It owned me as a kid, until one day it extracted one of my fillings.

(about a year later, I of course forgave it….)

Pecan pralines without the pecans. I haven’t had ones like my Mom used to make in YEARS and years.

I also loved the stuff that you’d make when making fudge. You have all the ingredients together and bubbling, but haven’t added the chocolate yet. I would scarf that white sugar stuff! Fact, I’m a grown up now, and I think I’ll find that fudge recipe and make that white stuff! No chocolate. Too fattening.

Also, Chocolate covered cherries and Payday candy bars.

Kardamom's avatar

@Dutchess_III I believe you are referring to Marshmallow Fluff/Creme

And yes, yes, yes to pecan pralines (only with the pecans). My parents brought some back from New Orleans years ago, and they were magnificent.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I know what Marshmallow Fluff Creme is. It’s just marshmallow whip. That is not what I’m referring to.
