I'd have to say no. I never look for a sweet snack. If I have any hunger pangs between meals, it's always for a savory snack.
That said, we have several different kinds of chocolates around the house. Right now it's mini Reeses cups, dark chocolate M&Ms and Andes mints. My grandson loves chocolate (big surprise) but in truth, they are for me.
Each night after dinner, around 9:00 - 9:30 PM, I need the dessert that goes with my dinner. Certainly not because I'm hungry. I guess it's a habit. BTW, that dessert is never the candy. It's cookies and milk or cake or ice cream. Some dessert or pastry.
