    Ok Scaries, Halloween is rapidly approaching and I must admit that my pregnant self is looking forward to an array of delicious chocolates. Are you?

    What is the first thing you reach for? What is the candy you call dibs on or try to stash away from the reach of grubby little fingers? What's your all time favorite?

    I must admit that I have several and this list will probably expand as your answers inspire me.

    Here goes:
    -Almond Joy
    -M&M's
    -Snickers
    -Milky Way
    -Jolly Ranchers
    -Reese's cups
    -And those "old people" candies that everyone else hates. What are they called? They come in orange and black paper, kinda like taffy, but taste like peanut butter. I freaking LOVE them!! Send them all to me!! :)

    Ok, your turn! :@)

    (And after professing your undying love for your favorite treat, go here and help me keep things evened out.)

    Baby Ruth
    Butterfinger
    Milk duds
    Twix
    Skittles
    Starburst

    And please feel free to take all those yucky peanut butter things, the bird seed covered candy and those pink and white things that look like pills with black licorice inside!

    The Reece's peanut butter cups for sure. The individually wrapped ones just taste better, no idea why.

    Oh and my all time 'kid' favorite? Those little rolls of white flat candies, what are they called? They remind of me little chalky pills.....There's like no taste...but I love them!

    I SO agree agree with you @CanadianMama! But they have to have that little cardboard square in the wrapper. The others just don't measure up

    Reese cups
    Twix
    Kit kat
    Mounds and almond joy

    I think those gross orange and black wrapped candies are p.b.kisses

    Oh for the love of all things holy I love Halloween jut for the candy!! I use my child as a pawn to get me candy from every house in every neighborhood bwahahahaha !! I love snickers, Reese cup, baby Ruth, Milky Way and anything with chocolate and sweet goodness! I HATE those peanut butter things in the orange and black wrapper, not big on suckers either. I have TMJ and anything too chewing just kills me but can't wait to raid DD candy bucket :)

    @Love Sour apple tootsie rolls? I've had lime, lemon, cherry, orange, vanilla and of course the original but I've never seen green apple.

    Those are being added to my list of must finds! I'm still looking for the caramel apple milky ways someone else mentioned a couple weeks ago. No luck yet.

    I think the "old people" candy is called peanut butter kisses.
    The ones wrapped in black and orange papers?

    My favs are
    Resses cups
    Snickers
    Almond joy

    If I eat fruity candy I have to have sour cherry or apple.

    Do they still make Spree? They're like SweetTarts, but with a candy coating like M&Ms. @curious triggered a craving. Uh-oh.

    Just looked them up on that site. Apparently there are 6 different flavors I've never tried! They all have to be purchased separately.

    I think dh would commit me if a box containing 6 pounds of tootsie rolls showed up at the door. Lol

    Reeses... and then anything else chocolate.
