Favorite Halloween Candy

What do kids want in their pumpkins this Halloween?

1.  Smarties.  This little candy has been around a long time.  At one time, Smarties were banned from my school because kids were breaking it down to powder and snorting it. I bet it burned!

2.  Starburst.  Too sticky for me.

3.  Twix.  Yum!  Finally a good one.

4.  Nerds.  My comment?  WHY?

5.  Skittles.  Like Starburst, too sticky for me.

6.  Sour Patch Kids.  My own children like these (grown children, I should say).  Too sour.

7.  M&Ms.  Now here's one I can really get behind.  I love the peanut butter M&Ms, and I like the regular and peanut M&Ms, too.

8.  Laffy Taffy.  My son likes this one.  Still too sticky for me.

9.  Tootsie Rolls.  I liked these as a kid, and my son loves them.  My dad loved them, too.

10. Kit Kat.  Here's another one I can support.

11. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  My second favorite after peanut butter M&Ms.

12. Twizzlers.  Not for me.  Again, they're sticky.

13. Candy Corn.  I normally don't like this candy, but I had some with peanuts mixed in, kind of like a trail mix, and it was delicious!

And there you have it:  the most popular candy ranked by kids and courtesy of Pop Sugar and Candy Crate.

(Funny how Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, and Candy Corn made both lists!  Guess it depends on who you ask!)

  1. My mother was a Kit Kat lover. She'd always buy them to give out at Halloween, making sure to buy at least three time more than she'd need.

  2. My favorite is a Milky Way Midnight, but I also like Smarties and buy them for myself sometimes. I would never have thought of snorting them. Why would you do that? Weird. Interesting list.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
