What's your favorite candy?

You can never go wrong with a handful of Reese's. :D

Also, Ethel M Chocolates (out of Vegas - 1-800-4EthelM) has the most outstanding dark chocolate filled with a tart lemon creme filling.


Love good 'n plentys too. :roll:

sour patch kids, sour punch straws, and most of all, those flat sour ribbons you get at smaller candy stores. i don't eat much candy these days, maybe i should go buy some?
i would love a chocolate and almond sarris bar right now, but like i've said before, i'm not having chocolate for the rest of my life. so i just have to deal with that.

I would say it's lingonberry (a relative of cranberry), as it's Swedish.
Think Ikea.

Actually, anything chocolate and if it has nuts, too, all the better. I would always choose chocolate candy over the "fruity" kind. I do really like spice drops and candy corn, too. All this stuff is good for you, right?

Barbara - I didn't know there were See's out in your neck of the woods - I'd always thought it was a west-coast thing. Their bordeaux is amazing! Ever had their marzipan?!!!
My poor sis is alergic to chocolate, but loves their marzis so much she buys them and then scrapes off the chocolate.

jkath,

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, for my hips) we don't have See's here. I moved here from California in 1996. The only way I can get it now is to go back home to visit or order online. I ordered 2 pounds for my husband last year for Valentine's Day, and now he agrees with me that See's is the best! Any of you who haven't been to a See's store have to get to one. Everything is black and white and sparkling clean! And they give samples! lol

:) Barbara

P.S. Yes, I've had their marzipan. Not my favorite, but still good. :)

BabaraL, we used to get See's Easter eggs from the So. Calif. grandparents. Loved them as a kid, but too sickeningly sweet (and too big!) for me now. Do they still make them?

Mudbug,

I'm sure they do. I've never had one, but I would probably like them. The reason my mom didn't like their bordeaux was that they were so sweet. I like sweet! lol Well, within reason. I can't eat as much of it if it is too sweet, so I guess that keeps me from over-doing it.

:) Barbara
