Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it in dew? Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two?

THE CANDY MAN CAN

It is the season for candy. Bags and bags and bags of it lining store shelves. But you don't have to just eat candy in October.

Do you tend to favor chocolate type candies such as M&Ms, Snickers, Reese's cups, and Caramello or do you prefer fruity kinds like Skittles, Sweet Tarts, Red Vines, and Laffy Taffy?

Do you just treat yourself occasionally, like when going to to a movie, or do you always have a stash in your desk or bag?

One summer during college, I worked in an office that always had a candy dish with mini Hershey's and Reese's stuff. I exhibited pretty much no self control and ate two or three a day. It was enough do that I actually gave myself a temporary allergy to chocolate so that I was breaking out in hives.

Pretzel M&Ms are pretty fantastic.

I used to be into the super sour personal challenge candy when I was a kiddo, such as Cry Babies, Tear Jerkers, and Warheads. Now, the most sour I want to deal with is Sour Patch Kids or those neon sour gummi worms.

One time I had a dark chocolate bar with bacon pieces in it. It was pretty good.

There is a butcher nearby called Proper British Bacon that also stocks in various UK candies. I've been meaning to try some. Hey Brits, what of your candies are good?

Do you ever want to go into one of those bulk candy stores in the mall and just get a big ol' bag of various candies and then realize that they charge a ridiculous per pound price and then just end up getting a few peach rings and some sour belts?

Let's hear it for candy!

    I came home one day and found that a friend bought me a 42 ounce bag of plain M&Ms, and a regular-sized bag of Laffy Taffy.

    It was that day that I realized that I have the best friends in the world.

    And that I love candy.

    I got a Cadbury Scream Egg at the store the other day. It's exactly the same as a Cadbury Cream Egg, except it's green inside.

    The first time I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, I had no idea what Turkish delight was and thought it was something made from poultry.

    Oh and I had some pavlova earlier and it was delicious

    Let's settle the great debate now. What sounds more stupid, lollies or candy?

    My church had a little Fall festival for the kids last night. They had one of those "guess how many pieces of candy are inside this jar" events, and I somehow won. I went home with 72 ounces of candy corn and M&Ms, the envy of dozens of children.

    One time I got sick after having a Nerds Blizzard from Dairy Queen. As in up all night barfing until you got nothing left and yet your body waking you up every 45 minutes to say you gotta blow chunks do you mad dash to the bathroom but all that comes up is bile.

    I wasn't able to have Nerds or a Blizzard for a long time after that.

    There is a 41 ounce bag of skittles to the left of me right now.

    The moment that it really dawned on me that I eat way too many skittles was the day that I bought a bag, took a bite of a few, and instantly said "Oh, they changed the flavor of the green and yellow ones."

    Know what I love? Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

    What I love more than that, though, is seasonal Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I swear to God there will be a Reeses Peanut Butter Pumpkin patch inside my stomach before the month of October is over.

    My other favorites are Peanut Butter M&Ms, those little mellowcreme pumpkins, those super dark chocolate bars I can get at Trader Joe's/Whole Foods, English Smarties, Cookies & Cream Hershey bars, and Snickers bars. I love chocolates a lot, never really been a fan of gummy or fruity candy but it's OK sometimes. Of course, Cadbury creme eggs are awesome too, but I hear in England they're a little bigger than the ones we get here in the US.

    also, different flavored licorice is pretty great

    I've been working on a bag of bright purple grape licorice for a few weeks now

    I have also found that I eat candy much more slowly now than I did as a kid. A chocolate bar will last me a week instead of 10 minutes.

    My favorite candy is ferrero rocher chocolates. I can run through a tray in one sitting. I wish they made like apple sized versions of those

    Oh, also, did I mention Reeses Pieces? Because I really like those too, especially at the movies when I want something other than popcorn to snack on.

    And caramel apples! Anybody in here like caramel apples?

    Pink Ladies are my go-to when I can't get a hold of Honeycrisps.

    Edit: Also if you've never had an apple banana, go give it a try. They are fantastic.
