Candy

I sit here eating my Halloween sized 100 Grand bar. When I was a kid, it used to be a 100,000 dollar bar. In case you don't know it, it's a hunk of caramel with puffed rice (or rice krispies) on top, covered in chocolate. I used to eat off all the rice and then eat the caramel... mm... It says on the label: 30% Less Fat than the leading chocolate brand. Huh? How vague is that? But I guess it does get the attention... And no, I didn't buy candy just for me - there's a bunch of stuff at the radio station and I took a bunch Tuesday night. Though I shouldn't have... don't do enough exercise to deserve to eat it.

I remember when Twix first came out (apparently it was 1979). The first time I tried it, the cookie was stale-ish; they must have shipped leftovers from England. I wasn't too impressed because it was stale, but over time I have grown to really like them.

I think my first love though was Canada mints. Circles of peppermint. I would eat almost a whole bag when I was a kid. Different ways including holding it in the middle and rotating it around while I scraped it with my teeth. I never was able to just suck on it until it disappeared. I liked to chew... mmm...

Stop your dirty minds and go eat some candy.

Hee hee. I do that with candy and cookies... figure out ways to eat off the chocolate first, then finish the rest. But I like to let things melt in my mouth.
Gee, it is hard to talk about chocolate eating habits without sounding dirty.

Myself, I'm partial to the Mr. Big bar, a Canadian candy bar, so I'm in a poor position to snicker at the double entendres in your last paragraph... Last time I had one was on Prince Edward Island last summer, at a gas station. Maybe will get another when I'm in Montreal, though the confectionary scene may be different in French Canada.

Peanut butter Twix are my favorite..I guess, I'll also choke down peanut butter cups, Snickers, Heath bars and malted milk balls. Mmm. I heart sugar.

Ah yes.....chocolate. Nothing I'm particularly fond of. Yes, I know--that's just weird.

We have a few leftovers here--himself is enjoying the Almond Joys and the Butterfingers.

I--am enjoying him making it disappear.

SR - I used to eat the candy coating and chocolate around peanut m&m's and then throw away the peanut.

Hey Squirrel... lol!

Churlita - I heart sugar too. in its purest form also.

Laura- funny. I don't think I've ever met anyone whose favorite bar is 3mustakeers...

3GK - yes, they are good. though I think I liked them more when I was little

Mel, one of my nieces does not like chocolate. So, it happens!
