Subject: Favorite Christmas Candy.

Written By: Reynolds1863 on 12/07/07 at 3:50 pm

I'm not going to do a poll because there's just too much variety.

I like Life Savor candy canes.

It used to be Almond Roca, but I got burnt out on them.

Now, I suppose it's those Orange sections you wrap in aluminum foil.

Thin Mints(although these are available all year) and Mint Chocolate M&Ms, which are only available during christmas.

Also like Cherry Cordials, although they are more a second fav.


I've never had Almond Roca, have thought about trying it.

I love ribbon candy.  It's been very hard to find for the past few Christmases, though.

Mint chocolate is the best candy to have during Christmas. Candy canes are a traditional favourite. I've never tried Terry's Chocolate Orange (that's the one you have to lightly bang to spilt it apart) but I'd love to get one to try.

I also like the Maple Nut "Beanies" (they look like miniature hats).

I'm not a fan of the oranges but I love the "Chocolate Raspberry Dark".

My favorites Christmas candy is homemade peanut butter balls (Buck-eyes).

My grandma used to make this awesome peanut butter and chocolate fudge. I just remember helping her make it and then eating it until I got sick. :P

I was wanting some, so I made some this past weekend. Still as good as ever, but I made Rice take a bunch to his lab so I wouldn't be tempted to eat it. :D

Fudge is always the best around Christmas time. I actually have some that we used the Foodsaver vacuum sucker on last year stored in the fridge - hmmmm, wonder if it's any good?

I also like to eat those candy canes of M n'M's. Anything with peanut butter I will digest with fervor.

I also like English Toffee, the softer it is the better.

Fudge is good, but it tends to make me thirsty.

Too much sugar, perhaps. You have to put a crapload in there.

I think they might put more in it than what's put into pop.

Fudge and Buckeyes. We like to make white chocolate flavored pretzels and then mix a little red or green food color into some of the melted chocolate and drizzle it on top. Festive looking and yummy! My moms neighbor always made cinnamon and spearmint hard candy on a big cookie sheet and then break it into pieces and put powdered sugar on it. It looked neat and tasted great.

Tanya ^  :o  It's good to see you kiddo.

I love Candy Canes. from those little tiny ones wrapped in cellophane, to the big straight ones, with or without the hook.   At Christmas time, Diane always gets bags of the Lindt Lindor Chocolate Truffles and they are so good.

I am pretty sure it would not be considered a Christmas Candy, but it is to me. I love Mocha's with peppermint.

My mom still buys those Lifesaver Storybooks for us. They usually have the butter rum flavor in them. Delicious. :)

I'm not big on dark either and I also prefer milk chocolate and have never been a fan of any fruit or fruit flavorings in it.  There's usually good fudge around the holidays, but I had a bad experience with it at work about 15 years ago which has slightly scarred me  :( . this one co-worker was sorta gross and she'd always bring in home made chocolate fudge to share and it looked like each individual piece was hand formed by her as you could see fingerprints on each one  8-P  and then this other lady would harass me by telling miss fudge maker that Mike really likes your fudge and you should give him more. that was so mean of her  >:(

Ewwww. There should be no reason to touch fudge in any way while you make it. All you do is essentially melt all the ingredients together and throw it in a greased pan. Once it sets, you cut it up and use a spatula to lift it out.

I'm not sure why you'd hand-form fudge. :P

For the most part, I like the dark chocolate M&M's that are available only during Christmastime (red and two shades of green).
