I've never heard of it, Pan.

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

That's where Easter's dangerous for me.  Malted Easter eggs.  In large bags.  Readily available.  Right out in the open.  For anyone to buy.

Speaking of anybody remember, now how about Zero Bars?



I remember the polar bears on the label from when I was a kid.  Now the imageTM is meh.  Techno high flash.

I do like Zero bars.  I don't remember the polar bear logo though.  In fact I didn't know Zero bars had been around that long.

Thanks a lot, Pal.

From Wiki:

Quote
ZERO was first launched by the Hollywood Brands candy company of Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1920 as the Double Zero Bar and was renamed "ZERO" in 1934.

Hmmph.

1920 is even before my time, you young whippersnapper, you.  Even my Mom was born after that, in '22.  Didn't know they were around that long, huuuuh?!?  Sheesh.  Kids today.

Since we're all sharing our candy likes...

(Zotz--I liked the fizz but those weren't common so I didn't have them too many times.)

Damn.  Yesterday, 10/30, was National Candy Corn Day, and I missed it.

Candy Holidays:  http://www.candyusa.com/FunStuff/content.cfm?ItemNumber=987

Today is National Caramel Apple Day, which doesn't do anything for me.  November 7th, however, is a keeper.  That day is National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day.  Now that's something into which I can sink my teeth.

I didn't have a caramel apple until I was an adult. Didn't get the fuss but every store around here has them.

Do you say car-mel or cara-mel or care-mel?

I'm an admitted chocoholic, so much so that I have my Hershey's hat from our trip to Hershey park, and I'm on my second one since I wore out the first (people around town who don't reeally know me say to my wife "always wears the chocolate hat?"). Also, embarrassingly, I've pretty much poisoned myself with the stuff!! No lie. I take a medication for GI distress brought on by eating too much. Chocolate has a component much like caffeine and can mess you up a little. So small doses are all I can do or I feel it.
So, my names Dan and yes, I really am a chocoholic!
That said, candy corn doesn't need chocolate, IMO. And I'm a big candy corn fan, too. The pumpkins are too much, as pointed out. Peeps are okay in small bits, but does any one else like those circuits peanuts! Not sure what flavor you'd call em, but they're orange. Used to be mad for the,, but have mostly outgrown them. Ok once in a while.
But, the thing that I know to stay away from , or that takes supreme willpower to stop once started, because it'd be disastrous, is Nutella! Think peanut butter, but chocolate (with hazelnut)! A spread you can put on anything from toast to... well, name it.
I'm pretty sure my sweet tooth will be the death of me.

Circus peanuts?  not a fan

anyone remember those hard, sugary "eggs" at Easter?  Sort of a marshmallow in the middle but with a thick sugar coating?  yuck
I hated jelly beans until Jelly Belly.

NUTELLA!   ::danceban:: ::danceban:: ::danceban::

I had it once years ago and didn't get the big deal.  I had it again this spring.  OH MY GOSH.  Who needs toast.  A spoon is sufficient. I have a daughter with a dairy allergy so I actually make a dairy free version so she can have some too.
(I prefer the European version of Nutella over the Canadian version because it's slightly less sweet but US stores only carry the Canadian one.)

If i had discovered  nutella as a kid,  I would've used nothing but my fingers!
Didn't know  there were 2 versions of it. First time i had it was in Europe, and was depressed for  years after,  having never seen it on US shelves. But I found it a few years ago and  I tell  myy wife its for  the kids ;)
And isnt it funny how  our tastes change as we get older?

And as I'm a true european mutt,  I  may have a swede in the woodpile, but i  was never able  to get a straight answer from my mothers mother. I definatly get my sweet tooth from her. She used to bring all sorts of  stuff from a local confectioner and got me hooked. She was such a regular there,  that years after she passed away,  I  went in and ordered some of her/my favorites,  and all the  ladies  behind the  counter knew her and remembered her well.
