This was recently a lengthy topic of discussion during one of our trips to the city. Many candies were discussed! We discussed mainstream branded candy vs. gourmet candy vs. different types of candy. We talked about the candy of our childhood and wondered why those stupid candy dots are still made. I miss the divinity that my grandma used to make. Anybody remember maryjanes?
DC1 likes twix and skittles. DC2 comes decisively on the side of gummy bears (or gummy bunnies).
#2 likes Heath Bars and Kit Kats. Did you know that in Japan they have different flavors of Kit Kats, like Green Tea? It’s ok. Oh, and peanut mnms!
#1 agrees on Kit Kats but always finds heath bars to be disappointing. I think chocolate covered almond toffee is my favorite with Trader Joe’s edging out See’s… though homemade almond toffee is pretty amazing. Definitely peanut mnms, though I like almond mnms better.
#2 thinks the peanut ones go down better than the almond ones. But she doesn’t buy much candy. “I mean if I’m getting something on purpose, it’ll be dark chocolate, often with nuts. Because I like dark chocolate and nuts. But that’s not often candy. Most candy is not high-quality enough and I don’t feel like spending money on good stuff.”
#1 only buys high quality dark chocolate bars, but that’s mainly because they don’t make me feel like crap. If I could eat all the candy in the world without it causing negative consequences, I would buy a lot more candy at TJ’s! I’m not sure that I actually like green and black better than kitkats, but one square of green and black will do for me what takes an entire kitkat, and if I eat too many kitkat I sugar crash later.
#2 usually prefers salty crunchy things to candy. She should try chocolate covered potato chips and chocolate covered pretzels because they are so good! The worst thing about Jimmy Fallon’s new job is that they changed his ice cream flavor.
Also we are agreed on Frango mints being awesome. Those are also my sister’s favorite.
What is your favorite candy and tell us about your candy memories (especially the sweet ones)!
