Poll question: Halloween Candy Poll
Trick-or-treaters past and present, what candy would you hope to snag?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Rockets!
They had a bucket of Rockets at the physical therapists office this week. I confined myself to 2 rolls!

2. Welcome to DU, QMPMom!
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 06:58 PM by Fridays Child
What are rockets? These? They look a lot like Smartees.

47. Thanks for the welcome!
Those are what I am talking about - what I have always called Rockets. Smartees, at least the ones I am used to, have a hard candy coating.

3. Love Almond Joys.
Actually, anything chocolate is fine, including Snickers and Butterfingers. When I was a kid, sometimes we'd get homemade popcorn balls, and I hated the damn things; they always seemed dry and stale. I also never liked Tootsie Rolls. I will be handing out Almond Joys this year.

4. I should send all of my Almond Joys to you.
I've just never been able to wrap my taste buds around coconut. But I got four big bags of assorted candies for the trick-or-treaters, and mini-Almond Joys dominate the mix. I know this because I opened one bag and consumed the mini-Heath Bars. :blush:

6. It ain't Halloween without candy corn. But I wonder why...
...it's called candy corn? It doesn't look like corn to me. :shrug:

20. Actually, I am embarrassed to admit it but the side effect
...bothers the people around me way more than it bothers me. I try to be courteous about those kind of things, though. ;)

I once sampled a bake sale cookie that was made by taking a chunk of sugar cookie dough and pressing one of those little Reese's cups down into the middle. It was fabulous!

25. I understand about side effects
I'm glad it's only certain veggies that do that to me, not essentials like candy. :rofl:

I love those cookies! Maybe you can try them with Kisses instead? We make them both ways here.

11. Who knew so many people liked Almond Joy?
Somehow, I figured, if I didn't like them, not many other people did, either. Boy, am I being proved wrong. Silly me. :P

No wonder I don't eat candy any more.

Oh well. I guess it's a good thing I don't have much of a sweet tooth. :)

17. Seriously? What is it? The gelatin?
I never think of that but you may be correct. Animal products and by-products are probably hiding in a lot of things.

18. Halloween wouldn't be complete without mini Hershey's bars
and a walk through the yard just before dark to look at the silhouettes of all the old majestic oaks and maples that have lost many of their leaves by now. It just wouldn't feel right without the walking silhouette tour picnic for me.

21. The purists among us would agree with you on that.
As for plain chocolate treats, I love those little Dove Promises, too. But I don't think they've earned a place in the pantheon of Halloween candy--not like Hershey's.

24. smarties, pixie sticks, sweet tarts, most any mini-candy bars,
tootsie rolls (if not too stale), really it was all good. Except for apples and those gross peanutbutter candies in the orange and black paper.

29. Pixie Sticks! I forgot about those.
I like Sweet Tarts, too, and those other ones that are like Sweet Tarts. I can't remember their name but they're like Sweet Tarts in shiny coats.

51. No. Not Skittles. It's going to drive me nuts until I think of it.
They come in rolls, just like Sweet Tarts and they're usually positioned right next to them, in convenience stores, for example. They're about the same size, hardness, and consistency as Sweet Tarts, the only difference being that they have a candy shell.

42. Smarties & SweeTarts
We weren't allowed to eat homemade things like cookies, though I'm sure the givers were being good hearted. This was back in the early 60's. I think the main concern was germs, rather than freaks poisoning the goodies.

55. It's close...
I've gotta admit, it's not Halloween without candy corn...the tri-colored little thingies, orange and yellow and white. It's also not Halloween without that orange or black wrapped candy...peanut butter kisses or something? I never liked it, but it's not Halloween with it.

The candy I always liked best...Smarties. My kids still give me theirs.

They also share their 3-Musketeers and their Reese's with me.

Such good li'l monst....er....darlings.

Those orange and black wrapped thingies don't taste very good but it's not Halloween without them.
