I like those mello cream candies...like candy corn, pumpkins and the autumn mix that you can only seem to buy around Halloween time. I guess the manufacturers of these candies don't want these candies to lose their novelty by only selling
them in the autumn season.

Besides, candy "corn" really only makes sense at harvest time.

I like the miniature (insert names of candy bars here).

Truthfully, I am more of an Easter candy person myself. I would never pass up chocolate bunnies.

Isn't it ironic that we celebrate Jesus' ascension into heaven with candy, and that we also celebrate a pagan-associated holiday with candy?

Well, Easter began as a pagan holiday before it became associated with the Resurrection. That's where the bunnies and eggs come from. :P

I love candy'corn' too, and those little orange pumpkins and I found out there was not a change in the formulation since it's invention in 1911, and that seems to be because they are still selling the same batch made back then.

actually Easter just usurped a pagan holiday ( of Ostera, no less) of new life/Spring/ etc.

And the "limited edition" candy bars they're coming out with nowadays that are modified versions of well-known candy bars (i.e. white chocolate Kit Kats, Reeses' peanut butter cups with caramel, etc)--those are always good.

Take 5 candy bars. They sell out faster than anything around here. pretzels, peanuts, peanut butter, caramel, and chocolate. Absolute favorite candy bar.

To me, pretzels in a candy bar don't really appeal to me. Chocolate-covered pretzels, on the other hand, are very good.

I like those soft pretzels they sell at baseball games, despite their oversaltedness.
