Halloween Candy - Sweet Talk

    I am not much of a candy eater but when fall arrives with Halloween in the air, it's like a candy spell has been cast and I find myself indulging in sweet treats for a few weeks. I love seeing Halloween candy in the shops and having a bowl of it in the house even if it's just for display. Along with ghosts, witches and Jack O Lanterns, candy is such a huge part of Halloween!

    What are your candy temptations and what was your favourite growing up? Have you ever had a great idea for one and is there any no longer in production that you wish was still around?

    ....and please help yourself to some candy while you're here.

    Always loved the fun-size candy bars the best. Didn't like the chalky, powdery, or sour/tart stuff!

    Reeses have grown in popularity here. There was a time you could only get it at special American Candy shops but now all supermarkets carry it.

    It's amazing to think how long some of these have been going!! I like that people incorporate savoury snacks into the mix nowadays.

    I also love Crunch bars. They remind me of growing up.
    I only got them on special occasions back then and I've kept that tradition going now.

    Popcorn balls and candied apples were my favorite as a child. Today, I eat ANYTHING chocolate. I will not discriminate against white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. I love them all.
