Monday poll...on Tuesday!!

Tell me, flist:

What type of sweet treat do you love finding in your Trick-or-Treat bag? What do you *not* want to find in there?

When I was a kid, I loved going to the house of an older couple my dad knew. They had a party in their garage instead of handing out candy at the front door (it was all safe, only kids with their parents were allowed in, by ~invitation~ only). They'd set up tables full of spiced cupcakes and warm apple cider and popcorn balls, and my absolute favorite: ginormous caramel-dipped apples (with the caramel still warm). And while they technically never ended up in my Trick-or-Treat bag, those caramel apples were ACE. I also enjoyed the full-size Hershey bars our landlord handed out.

I hated getting Milky Ways & Butterfingers & those yucky peanut butter nougaty things wrapped in the orange & black waxed paper. Milky Ways & those peanut butter things taste like balls & Butterfingers hurt my teeth. However, Milky Ways & Butterfingers are what I buy to give out @ Halloween...that way I won't go crazy and eat any!!
;)

I love finding Reese's Cups. Oh and dark chocolate. You suddenly become my new best friend if you give me dark chocolate. And those little red strawberry candies that come wrapped like an actual strawberry. I don't know what they're called but I've loved them since I was a kid AND I CAN NEVER FIND THEM ANYWHERE.

What do I hate getting? Licorice.

Dark chocolate ♥ Totally agree with that.

They're hard candy with a gooey center, right?

There is a 'nostalgic' candy store in Fort Wayne. I just happen to be heading in that direction on Friday. SCORE!

Hmm, my favorite treat to get? I seriously don't even remember, I pretty much enjoyed everything but a few things. My one neighbor used to give out full-size Hershey bars too and she liked me so she would seriously give me an entire box of them. I always looked forward to that, haha.

Least favorite? Probably popcorn balls, I had no use for them with all of that sugar and chocolate surrounding them. Also, my one neighbor gave out pennies. WTF kind of treat is that!?

PENNIES?!??! OMG you can't even get gumballs out a machine with pennies anymore, can you?

You're probably lucky if you can get a gumball for 25 cents nowadays!

Good question. Hmm... I'd have to go with Smarties (they still make those? LOL!), anything Reese's PB thingamobs, Coffee Crisp, Kit Kats, chips and cookies.

What not to put in? Apples or any kind of fruit. Oh, and raisins. Ick.

Yup, they still make Smarties. They're like the go-to candy when you need a sugar rush ;)

Ugh, raisins are always the wrong answer.

Smarties and Candy Apple Pops. Those things are sooo good.

And I hated those peanut butter nougat things, too. To the point that I wanted to throw them back at the people.

I don't think I know what Candy Apple Pops are. They sound good, though!

I'd always leave those peanut butter things @ my grandma's house & they'd still be in the pantry the next Halloween. I don't think I've ever met anyone that likes them LOL.

I have never seen those. Going to an 'old school' candy store on Friday, I'll have to see if they have some.
