Just for fun and because I met my quota of paper writing for today :)
These go from worst to best.
25. Tootsie Rolls: no one wants them at parades let alone the best candy night of the year.
24. Dum-Dum Suckers: I liked these when I was six and my mom fished one out of her purse at the mall or doctors office but...on Halloween? It's like giving a bride a single dandelion as her bouquet.
23. M&M's: I know I'm in the minority but I these are just so disappointing to me. The candy coating is almost crusty and the chocolate is so minuscule, what's the point?
22. Snickers: I'll eat these when nothing else is there but they're just so lackluster. If there are more nuts than chocolate, I'm out.
21. Mounds: Same as Snickers.
20. Baby Ruth: See above.
19. Laffy-Taffy: It's fun and all but wait a few days and the wrapper sticks to it so bad that you end up eating bits of plastic. Plus, I feel like Halloween is a chocolate candy holiday.
18. Whoppers: Years ago these would have been close to number one but they have since changed their recipe and now they're vaguely waxy. Boo.
17. Tootsie Pop: It's like, ok. Better than a dum-dum but the payoff is a tootsie roll? Not impressed.
16. Starburst: Partly for the same reasons as taffy but they're pretty flavorful and coming upon a package of two pinks is like stumbling o a gold mine.
15. Crunch: These are good, I like a bit of texture in my chocolate. But, the chocolate itself is not very tasty. Nestle < Hershey's.
14. Skull Suckers: Maybe these existed only in the 90's but they were white on one side and brown on the other and had a wonderful magic flavor.
13. Blow-Pop: Yes please. All the flavor that Tootsie-Pops lack and an actual reward of chewing gum.
12. Skittles: They are everything M&M's wish they were. Flavorful and worth it. Plus the color of the shell actually means something.
11. Milk Duds: Who doesn't love to shove a bunch of these in their mouths and chew for hours? They lose points for being a bit overwhelming though...
10. Milk Chocolate Hershey Bars: Plain, classic, delicious milk chocolate delight.
9. Three Musketeers/Milkyway: To this day I always forget which is which. I know one is more fluffy but that's about it. They're similar is what I mean. Both tasty but not something you want to eat a lot of.
8. Butterfinger: A little toffee is always a plus. The Butterfinger loses points for begin wasteful though. You bit into one and the chocolate coating just flakes off everywhere.
7. Reeeses: A quintessential Halloween treat. I love peanut butter and I love Reeses but they just aren't my favorite, you know?
6. Almond Joy: There is one almond in an Almond Joy bar and THAT is the joy. The simplicity, the careful placement right in the center of all that tasty coconut.
5. Take 5: Pretzel, caramel, chocolate and peanut butter are a winning combo.
4. 100 Grand: This beats out Take 5 because it has a cookie part and as you will see, that cookie part means a lot to me.
3. Cookies and Cream Hershey Bars: How are there not more Oreo candy bars? These are divine and props to them for brining white chocolate to Halloween when Easter usually dominates it.
2. Kit-Kat: The combo of the chocolate and wafer is top notch, I could eat myself sick with these.
1. Twix: I told you, it's all about that cookie bottom. Chocolate, caramel and the best tasting foundation around. This has been my favorite candy bar for as long as I can recall.
Happy Early Halloween all! May your holiday be full of Twix and Kit-Kat's with minimal Tootsie Rolls ;)
