10 on Tuesday: Favorite Candies in My Trick or Treat Bag

I’m in my brother’s car right now, heading to Charlottesville for a Springsteen show, and thought I’d pass the time by writing today’s 10 on Tuesday post (topic provided, as usual, by Carole Knits) as we drive along.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been trick-or-treating, so this might reflect my current candy opinion more than what I liked back in the day.

1. Almond Joy.

2. Skittles.

3. Three Musketeers.

4. Tootsie Rolls.

5. Snickers.

6. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

7. Kit-Kats.

8. M & Ms.

9. York Peppermit Patties.

10. Zagnut. Ok, this one is old-timey. I always liked these weird coconut-peanut butter things, but have never seen them any time other than Halloween. I had to google them this morning to make sure they were a real candy and not a figment of my imagination.

What are your favorites?

    Hmmmm. Don’t think you’ll be home early enought to write??? HaHa. I hope you and Brian have a great time!!

    My candy choices: #1,3,5,6,7, and 9. Now I need four more. Plain old milk chocolate covered anything — nuts, raisins, coconut, fruits, etc etc. Those orange slices things — gummy and coated in hard sugar. I need a candy counter to finish this …. (oh, you guys used to like those “Smarties” and Pez!

    When I was a kid, Mr. Good bars and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Nowadays, it’s Almond Joy, Nut Goody, Whoppers, and York Peppermint Patties. But if you ask our trick-or-treaters, I’ve been known to “borrow” Kit Kats, M&Ms, Twix, or even a Snickers. Guess that makes 10, huh? Sense a chocolate theme?

    Have FUN tonight!

    As a non chocolate lover, Halloween candy always posed a challenge to me. But here is my list:
    1. Sweet tarts
    2. Tootsie pops
    3. Reese’s peanut butter cups
    4. Starburst 
    5. Twix
    6. Candy corn 
    7. Dum dum pops
    8. Sprees
    9. Carmel’s 
    10. Nerds

      I cannot believe I forgot SweeTarts! I definitely like them better than Snickers.
