Candy Confessions

a-to-z-letters-cI admit it. I have a deep love for candy – chocolate, sweet, tart, caramel. I have an affinity for sweets. As I get older I try to curb my sweet tooth and refrain from buying checkout treats. But, as we just passed a major candy holiday, these sweet confections abound in our home. More times than not, I can’t walk past my kids’ Easter baskets without grabbing a hand full of jelly beans or a Reese’s peanut butter egg (and my waistline knows it too.)

So as today is the letter “C” in the April A to Z blogging challenge, I thought it fitting to pay tribute to my favorite candies of all time (some of which I don’t think are even available any more at least in my local grocery store.) In no particular order, here is my top ten list:

  1. The Marathon Bar – This was one of my favorites as a kid. A twist of chocolate and caramel, it was the longest candy bar at the time.
  2. Necco Wafers – My favorite was the all chocolate roll although the assorted flavors are good too and they lasted a whole movie.
  3. Skor – A light chocolate and toffee bar. Mmmmm.
  4. Twix – I like the regular caramel one best, but the peanut butter one will do in a pinch.
  5. Peanut M&Ms – Whatever the color, I like them.
  6. Pay Day – Salty peanuts and sweet caramel. I’m starting to get hungry!
  7. Tootsie Rolls – From the midgets to the big bar, I can’t pass up that chewy chocolate.
  8. Mars Bar РChocolate, nougat (what is nougat anyway?) and almonds, oh my! Snickers Almond is almost as good, but not quite!
  9. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Chocolate and peanut butter pure goodness. You can’t go wrong!
  10. Sugar Babies – Candy-coated milk caramel. Milk Duds will do, but I prefer Sugar Babies. Plus, I love the name:)

Did I miss any? What’s your favorite candy? I’d love to hear!
