Candy Corn: With or Without Chocolate?
« on: October 02, 2013, 08:39:03 PM »
 It's a pressing question of serious seasonal import.

Being a candy corn afficianado, this is why I Halloween is so scary to me:  I always end up eating at least one bag.  Every.  damn.  year.

                     


Anyway, definitely chocolate.

Thank gawd Halloween only comes around once a year, though I still have another bloody month to go.  Danger!  Danger!  Will Robinson!

Libertas, I never really liked candy corn until the chocolate ones came out.  I also do not like the rather large pumpkin shaped ones.  Just too much per bite.

Gosh, I despise that stuff. And there aren't too many candies I don't like.

I love seeing candy corn -- it means fall and Halloween and childhood to me just didn't like it. Same for that "ribbon candy" my mom used to buy at Christmas. lol

Peeps?

Got to admit I loved them as a kid.

I don't eat much candy (or desserts of any kind) any more--I way more satisfied with the fresh food I now cook that rarely do I want to spoil that with sugary treats after dinner.

I used to have such a sweet tooth but now I'm more of a savory type.

I prefer the regular old candy corn without chocolate. I also like the little pumpkin ones. Halloween was most fun for me when the costumes were simple and kitschy, i.e. a vinyl "gown" and a plastic mask with a rubber band holding it on your head. My earliest memory of Halloween was wearing a costume like that in the form of R2-D2. It was unusually cold that Halloween and I was sick the next day. I also fell off someone's porch into the bushes. I was about 3 years old.

I can stand a few handfuls of traditional candy corn (not that alternative chocolate stuff).

Here are 2 all-time faves:

Plain candy corn for me.  No pumpkin shapes or chocolate flavors.  Just hand me enough to become diabetic and let me go on my way.   ::thumbsup::

But the best thing ever is Peanut butter brittle.

Ain't to fond of them myself though many in the family like them all the same.

Brachs has an apple candy corn which I like far more than the other two. As with anything, to much at one time just kills the joy.

I also fell off someone's porch into the bushes. I was about 3 years old.

I remember being 6 years old and waiting breathlessly for mom to return from the drugstore with my cheap little costume.  How I hoped she got a princess one!

Then people got concerned about the flammability of those costumes and my mom got cheap so we had homemade, lame costumes.  My mom always wanted me to be a gypsy--I could put on her long 70's skirts and a bunch of jewelry. ( I hated it.)  I changed  that with my kids! lol I make their costumes--I sew enough I don't need a pattern every time and it's cheaper and faster than trudging from store to store trying to find one they like.

I'm also the mom that encourages my kids to get as much candy as possible. hehehe  I have one kid who would quit after a while and say "I have enough." Me: "What's wrong with you?  Don't you know how this works?" (I let her quit but she had to stick with the others until they were done.)

Heh!  Could be siblings!   ::thumbsup::

My mother made all our costumes until we were old enough to do that ourselves, didn't think it was because I thought she was thrifty at the time, she was really good at artsy stuff like that and not only made costumes but whole themes for our birthday parties (pirate birthday, race car birthday, etc).  But that artistic side didn't transmit genetically...my skills as an older trick/treater was limited to conjuring up being a bum or a mummy.

I'm honestly surprised at the open hostility those adorable little chocolate candy corn have generated.  I'm shocked, shocked I tell ya.  Chocophobes, the lot of ya!

Never was into marshmallow, even open an open fire; never got into meringue, either.  Now whipped cream . . . .

Have to say I've been into some candy bars of late that I never ate as a kid, Peter Paul Mounds, the dark chocolate one and, surprisingly sans chocolate, Paydays.  Like miniature candy now, though, with the candy corn being a problem due to the size of the package after opening, versus those little snack bars.  Having those mini Tootsie Rolls around takes care of any chocolate fix that might suddenly rear its ugly head.  I also enjoy a nicely chilled mini York Peppermint Patty.  Kids today have it so good because when I was a kid, you only had the small saucer plate sized bar, rather big and overpowering in large doses.  But that mini one is juuuuuuust right.

I guess I should turn this thread into:  Hello, my name is Rick, and I'm a chocoholic.  {Murmers, HI Rick [hand waving] murmers}

So chocolate candy corn is good with me.

Chocolate used to be my go-to candy as a kid.  Didn't really understand anyone who wanted to eat anything else as candy. I remember in high school I could eat 3 candy bars in one sitting. 


I don't eat much chocolate any more.  I hated dark chocolate as a kid but now that's all it eat if I eat chocolate. One small piece is all I need to feel satisfied.  (Ok, except Nutella.   I rediscovered that this spring and now can't remember why I used to hate it!) I can't eat regular milk chocolate bars any more --they're too sweet.

I like chocolate, but one thing I can't stand is malted chocolate. I have hated Whoppers and the like since childhood.

No hostility, just dislike.

Kit-Kat for me (although the commercials are annoying) and Three Musketeers.  I get German-made chocolate bars -- Sport -- with hazelnuts.

Definitely prefer chocolate with nuts.

Anybody remember Bonomo turkish taffy bars?
