Top 5 List for October 28, 2016

45935082 - filled frame of candy corn perfect for the halloween holiday.You know?  I had a hard time coming up with a list this month that wasn’t something snarky about our HOA but I’ve since mellowed and decided on a Halloween theme because, well, it’s nearly Halloween and I’m stuck going to a party tonight at a museum where I will only know my husband.  A night at a party where not a soul but my spouse is known is a Nightmare on My Street any day of the week.  As an introverted introvert, I’m in purgatory all day long while I wait for the party to start.  I have not selected an outfit because I probably don’t really have one.  I have mom clothes.  I have Realtor clothes.  I have work-out clothes.  I have hanging out on the cul-de-sac clothes for every season.

I don’t have going-out-to-meet-stranger clothes.

With that being said, I will focus on the sweeter things in life, and especially around Halloween–candy.  Here are my Top 5 Favorite Halloween Candies of all time in no particular order:

5.  Candy Corn–A definite favorite of mine that goes way, way back to my childhood.  I’m not sure why I like them so much because they’re not chocolate but I do.  I definitely do.

4.  Smartees–Again, not chocolate but I love these so much, especially the purple ones.  Even on our recent trip to Universal Studios, I grabbed a bunch from their Candy Shoppe to  savor on the long trip home.  I’m an adult with a kid living in her belly.

3.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups–I wish I could eat these (several of them) on a daily basis with coffee, as a healthy snack, as dessert for both lunch and dinner, and a sitting-in-front-of-the-TV mindless treat.  I buy these in any form for every holiday including the peanut butter eggs for Easter and the peanut butter trees for stocking stuffers.  Yum.

2.  Milky Ways–These are a surprise because I used to say Snickers were a favorite but not anymore.  I love the ooey gooey goodness of the Milky Way and only in the milk chocolate version, please.  I don’t like the extra dark although I’ll eat them if they’re the only thing left at the bottom of a kid’s Trick or Treat bag.

1. Twix–These are a late addition.  I don’t think I preferred them all that much when I was younger but after the kids started going door to door for Halloween treats, I would pounce on their haul as soon as they went to bed.  I became quite the candy connoisseur.

And there you have it, folks.  What are your favorite Halloween candies?

  1. We don’t celebrate Halloween here, even though I did make jack-‘o-lanterns and this year I attended a Halloween party since it was one of the evenings during my team building trip with the firm.

    I have to say that from your list, I love Milky Way! And the only other one I know is Twix, which is good, but Milky Way… the best!
