    I know this is crazy, but today when DH & I went grocery shopping, I found Candy Corn and bought two. One for work and one for the house.

    Of course DH thinks I am absolutely Nutz, I love Candy Corn.

    I guess it is the sign that fall is coming along with the holidays. It's two months before Halloween, but I cannot help myself. At least I have two months - Maybe three (after Halloween) to enjoy Candy Corns. [​IMG]

    This made me think... What is everyone's favorite holiday treat?

    Think what makes you warm and fuzzy about seasonal candy...

    Next favorite treat are "Peeps" at Easter!

    So I have a sweet tooth... What's yours?

    oh, I can SO identify with you about the candy corn!!! I need it like I need another 50#, but I just can't pass up having candy corn at least once in the fall. There's also a ritual way to eat it: nibble off the white tip first, then the orange middle, and lastly, finish off the yellow top part. Yum!! Thanks for taking me back to childhood! *now thinking about candy corn, orange candy pumpkins for fall, circus peanuts, and hard Christmas candies, including the kind with the designs in the middle, and the ribbon kind...*

    oh, & let's not forget Heavenly Hash (for some reason not available here further north than my husband's home state of LA. He grew up on them, and we RARELY see them up here...) they're chocolate covered marshmallow eggs with 2 whole almonds on top (under the chocolate).

    OMG I loveeeeee candy corn [​IMG]

    Hmmm faves?
    Around easter I like the cadbury eggs and reeses eggs... Heck, I buy anything from reeses that comes in shapes, my kids love them.

    Candy corn for fall. Yeah, I eat the different colors separately too. [​IMG]

    Candy canes for winter, I munch on them as long as there's snow outside. They're awesome with whipped cream topped hot cocoa [​IMG]

    why is it that the reese's holiday shapes taste so much better than the candy bars
    Fresher candy I guess or maybe it's the shapes LOL
    I look forward to the White chocolate covered Oreos around Christmas YUMMM
