Friday's Five: Halloween Candy to Share with Mommy

In honor of the holiday weekend (and because my kids are out of school today, so no time for a more researched list), here are my five favorite Halloween candies that I'll be sneaking out of my kids' bags after trick-or-treating:

  1. Candy corn: Apparently a lot of people (at least those on the Internet) really hate candy corn, but I love it. And so does my husband, who will have to wrestle me for it.
  2. 3 Musketeers: The best candy bar ever. I like to eat the outside first, then the fluffy inside last. I don't know why, but I always have.
  3. Reese's cups: Since Junius is allergic to peanuts, I'm really just protecting him by eating these before he does. I know, I'm such a great mom.
  4. Kit Kat: These are tasty as-is, but even better when my husband crumbles them onto chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup.
  5. Peppermint patties: So refreshing, yet still dessert-y. A lovely combination.
Note to my neighborhood readers: I am not handing out all of these at my house (duh, I'm hoarding them for myself), so don't be disappointed if you get something else.


  1. My favorite Halloween treats are MMs and Smarties. But since I'll eat just about any candy, I don't hand out candy at Halloween. I hand out Halloween pencils. Just like a teacher....

  2. I will be right there with you with my hand in their bag! - Candy corn (didn't get any); Snickers, Milky Ways, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Trix! Eventually, they'll forget they have candy and it will be all mine - hehehehehe

  3. I love Milky Ways! I'm not a candy corn fan, for some reason just thinking about them makes my teeth hurt :o)


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
