No – I am not talking about Christmas…I am talking about Halloween. Most importantly – Candy season. For me and many others Halloween is the official season of candy, the celebration of the sweet tooth. The season always brings up the age old discussion – what is your favorite candy? For me the answer is simple and no candy can even come close to the number one position. But I would like to take the opportunity to rank my personal top 5 candy choices. Please note this is for the chocolate division only. Perhaps in a future post we can analyze the chewy candy division (MIKE AND IKE, SWEDISH FISH!!!)
Hershey’s Dark Chocolate – very basic but you have to love the dark chocolate version. Did you know dark chocolate has many health benefits also? sign me up!!!
Twix Bar – a very sold candy…the milk chocolate, the wafer, always crisp. Twix has a ton of flavor but that light taste allowing you to eat several in one sitting without feeling slowed down
1000 Grand Bar – for me this is an underrated favorite that makes the top 5. Maybe others feel the same but I always feel the 1000 gets overlooked by the typical candy standby’s. This bar is a great mix of chocolate, caramel and crisped rice.
Snickers – gotta love a snickers bar. It is the opposite of Twix in my book in that it is a nice hearty, filling candy bar. Bonus points for their recent marketing campaigns which I really enjoy!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – for me this is the be all, end all, slam dunk #1 candy. I love the traditional cup, love the specialty Reeses’s products (the Reece’s Christmas Tree!), from the freezer, room temperature. It does not matter – that peanut butter and chocolate combo is unmatched. It is nearly impossible for me to turn to a Reece’s’ cup!
So there it is – my top five candy choices in the chocolate division. I hope this creates some good candy conversation in the office to discuss with your coworkers.
