Pick up to three options. Also list your least favorite.

I picked chocolate (of course), raisins, and those Rockets.  As a kid, I think my selection would have been different since I was such a candy girl, and would have probably picked lollipops, gummies, and nerds.

My less desirables I don't think have changed. I hated caramel squares, those kisses, and that skull white chocolate that had this red jelly in the center.

Hershey's Crisps are one of my favorites.

Ha Rockets.  We know them as Rockets, but in the USA, they are called Smarties.

Speaking of Smarties, the Nestle ones, I used to love getting those as well as Thrills gum

I chose "other".

Mainly for Candy corn and pumpkin mellowcremes. I'm surprised you didn't have them on the list.

Caramel, chocolate, and candy corns.

How could you forget to list candy corns?

They're like sugary candle wax with artificial colorings!

Yes, I remember those wax lips. So disappointed when I tried to taste one (basically tastes like nothing).


As for the candy corn, I forgot to put that on the list because I don't remember getting it in my pillow case. I don't think it's that popular up here in Canada (not where I'm from anyway).

Well, you ain't missing much.  I listed it from my 9-year-old perspective.  Candy corns were ubiquitous.  When I was nine, it didn't have to be quality, it just had to be sugary!

With me, most of the other candy that pops up at Halloween you can pretty much get in form or another any time of the year. Kinda why I only mentioned candy corn and pumpkin mellowcremes.

Joys of Childhood: Trick-or-treat on Hallowe'en.

Joys of Adulthood: Trick-or-treating at the office food trough on the day after Hallowe'en, when all the parents have brought in their leftovers!

I could eat candy 'til noon any day I want... but there's only one day that I do.
Gotta get up and take on that world.  When you're an adult, it's no cliche, it's the truth!
'Cos I'm an adult now...

(I'll get the onset in adulthood, my hand on my pancreas, I'm an adult now!)

Well I live with cakes and cookies
and other things that go crunch in in the night
'Cos to me every day is like Halloween
Give me more ice cream and I'll take a big bite
Anyplace, anywhere that I go
All the people give me chocolate eclairs,
They say why don't you eat some more jelly beans,
you look like Divine at his sweet sixteen...

Noooo, not chocolate covered Brussels sprouts, chocolate molded to resemble Brussels sprouts!  I would have to find a confectioner to make them and pay his price, but I'd eat 'em all up!

I kinda am...but only on occasion. When I trick-or-treated, as a kid, I would enjoy eating some of those after getting back home.

I like smarties and York peppermint patties. I like whoppers not because of the taste, but they're fun to eat.
