If you have expensive taste in chocolate and only eat that, don't post here! This thread is not for you.

This is a thread for those of us with deep, dark chocolate secrets. It is our candy confessional, so to speak.

What is the junk-candy you rifle your kids' trick-or-treat bags to find?

What is the junk-candy you dare not give out at Halloween, because you know you would eat half a bag of it before the first costumed child ever rang your doorbell?

What is the junk-candy you have to resist every gosh-diggily-doggone time you are standing in a grocery check out line?

Here is my guilty pleasure:


Post here, for absolution of your sins.

When I did eat candy, I'd eat Mounds, My brother would eat Almond Joy, though He is beyond that now.
I don't eat candy much, which is why I still have all but 3 of My adult teeth still.

Eddie World is opening soon in Yermo CA, they make and sell their own Candy, plus have shakes and such,
if you have need of gasoline, diesel, or a Tesla to charge, they're right next to the i15 fwy between Barstow CA and Las Vegas NV.

If your kids get Toblerone Bars in their trick-or-treat bags, then you must live in a community that wouldn't even let me through the front gate!

Again I tell you, it is easier for an airport-sized Toblerone Bar to go through the eye of a needle than for someone living in a gated community to enter the kingdom of the Candy God.

Go forth and sin no more.

Forgive me for I have sinned.
Peach Rings. I think it was about a pound and a half or so. The bulk bin had to be 60 or 70 pounds worth in it. It was huge and tempting. Had to swallow much drool looking at the multitude of other refined sugar selections. Candy Nirvana.
The Peach Rings did not make it home.

I lived in a community where everyone gave out full size bars. We gave Toblerone, several organic candy bars and glow sticks. I wanted the kids to be safe and seen. We were well know. You would see buses of kids unloading at the entrance.

You will go out in (almond)joy and be led forth in (Reese's) peace(s); the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the (peach)trees of the field will clap their hands.

Your candy sins are absolved.

The Russell Stover holiday themed things you now find pretty much all year. For Valentine's they're hearts. For Halloween they're pumpkins. For Christmas, Santas. Many are chocolate covered flavored marshmallow; I like the orange flavor with dark chocolate. But my favorites are the truffles. They also have chocolate-coconut nests, which used to have jelly bean eggs, but those were deleted several years ago.

More generally, either a Reese's cup or a plain old milk chocolate bar.

And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them into the pot of pottage: for they knew them not.

Rejoice in the Candy God's blessings, for your candy sins are no more.

There's something about the texture that does it for me.
I'd buy them more often if they didn't disappear so quickly..
