I don't usually crave candy. I'm more of an ice cream (hello Ben & Jerry's White Russian!) and cheese girl. But whenever Halloween rolls around I can't seem to get it out of my mind. It's everywhere: at the grocery story, the drugstore, the bank, the giant bag in the garage desperately hoping to stick around long enough for the trick-or-treaters.
If I eat candy the rest of the year it's usually something like Milk Duds at the movie theatre or a Skor bar from the drugstore. When October rolls around, though, it's like my taste buds take a turn and suddenly I'm interested in things that do nothing for me the other eleven months of the year.
Some candy I only eat during the Halloween season:
- Candy Corn
- Tootsie Rolls
- Dum Dums, Blow Pops, Tootsie Pops, and other suckers
- Mini candy bars (especially Snickers and Butterfingers)
What about you? Do you have any favorite Halloween candy that you could care less about the rest of the year?
