Yesterday we tackled the worst candy. Most of us can agree that circus peanuts are the devil and that’s a good thing. We’re sort of on the same page here. But I thought we’d give our favorite candy a chance to shine as well. I’m all about the equal time.
For me, there is no question as to the best candy. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
I’m not a huge chocolate fan. I like it, but not enough to eat a whole bar of just chocolate. I need to have it mixed with something. It’s like drinking. Rum is ok, but I wouldn’t drink it straight. It needs a mixer. It needs Coke. So I think of peanut butter as chocolate’s mixer.
A more recent discovery is the Three Musketeers Dark Chocolate Mint bar. AISOT*, biting into one of those is a religious experience. It’s like God came in my mouth.
Yes, I am going to hell. But I’m taking you all with me.
Anyhow, here’s your chance to give props to your favorite candies. And anyone who says Mounds or Almond Joy will immediately be branded as the Anti Christ. Really, who the hell names their candy Mounds? Because all I can think of is, well…..sex. And I don’t want to confuse sex with coconuts. Although once I wore a coconut bra during a bachelorette party. While singing Sister Christian. But still, that has nothing to do with coconut covered candy.
Off topic again. Let’s stick to favorite candy.
