Well, one thing I've been thinking about lately is which things I miss about Canada, or North America really. I was thinking about tim hortons donuts, a&w root beer and fritos, and then my mind went to that which is always important to kids as they grow up. and that's candy. I wanted to see what kind of candy people like the most.
For me Wonka's SWEETARTS are the best. I'm not too into the chewy ones or gummy ones, but the original style I guess. I used to go through about 2 packs a day. I know that sounds like a smoker talking but man I was a sweetart fiend. I reckon I was developping a sugar-blood level. Anyways, what's your favourite candy? or what do you think would make a crazy good candy? I reckon when I found out that they had taken nerds and put them on a rope of candy I was like, oh my goodness, those oompa loompas are genius.
It'll be interesting to hear. Nowadays my fave candy bar is the PICNIC chocolate bar.

I like Snickers, it's like a Picnic, but you can eat it without looking like a rabid dog.

I'm not a huge fan of candy, but I do enjoy the occasional Reese's cup. Also 100 Grand bars– those things seriously don't get enough cred in our modern day and age. And I'll pretty much take anything with dark chocolate in it.

Lindor. Yum. Anything with caramel in it is good in my books as well.

I always swallow gum. Anything chocolate is for me, though. One day I ate nothing but chocolate things.

I love rock candy - every time I end up at Cracker Barrel I buy a whole bunch of it. Werther's Originals are pretty good, too.

man, i forgot about so many good ones like rolos and cookies and cream.
now this has been a matter that puzzles me:
Which is the better? Snickers bars or Mars bars???
personally, i'm a snickers fan. it has everything that is good in the world, like ntuis and caramel, and it's just perfect. i'm not being biased but why would you take a mars bar if it's practically the same thing with less good stuff, ie no peanuts?
One thing I love here in AussieLand is the Whitman's Peanut slab( is it whitmans?). Man, it's so simple but, like mr pibb and red vines, it equals crazy delicious
now i tried something at the movie theatres the other day. a friend was like ‘want some maltesers?’ and that's like a malt ball, which to me is as apetizing as a moth ball, and i was like ‘no’. but then she said to try a malteser with a handful of popcorn, like simultaneously. i was a little skepticle(?) about it, but it was pretty good. I was like ‘whoa this is good’ and she was like ‘ya it makes it so you can’t taste the maltesers'. which begs the question, why buy candy you don't like, but the answer is so that you can eat it with popcorn to make it taste edible.
good times.
M&M's rock. Same with Gummi, anything gummi really. like swedish fish.
now who is into starburst or skittles religiously? i guess i'm a bit superstitious because i'm wary of anything that starts out candy and turns into a gum-like substance. it reminds me or werewolves, which is a bit scary to me.

I don't eat sweets but I love chocolates, especially bitter sweet ones. I'm very choosey when it comes to chocolates. I only buy those that are less sweet. I don't like those common commercial chocolates such as Kiss, M&Ms, Mars, Snickers, Cadbury, etc. as I consider them too sweet for my tastebud.

Most of Japanese made chocolates and cookies are good. They are less sweet yet tastes good. Some of European gourmet chocolates, such as GuyLian's Opus or La Trufflina, rank best in terms of flavor and variety but I don't like it when they're too sweet. I also love some of the European liquor chocolates. And Australian macadamia coated chocolates too. Mmmm… I love macadamias.

You're 100% right! They rule. Best nuts in the world!
As for big brand commercial chocolate, I like Cherry ripe and Bounty bars. Coconut is the common ingredient there ;)

What I really love are the kind of sweet things you might get from a bakery though: Coconut ice, Vanilla slice, Lady's finger, Baklava, Custard tart, Meringue, Neenish tart… I love Soan Papdi too but only speciality shops sell them because they're imported from India… I really must try making them for myself!

Apart from those lovely sugary sweets, I love dried Papaw spears as a more natural but still delicious sweet treat.

Oh man, this thread is bringin' back so many memories.
Macadamias, even though they don't count as ‘candy’.
Roasted, seasoned, sprinkled, chocolate coated, num num num num num.

Used to live in a neighbourhood which was infested with Macadamia nut trees, I ate them until they tried to escape C: . The neighbours hated it when I darted around their back yards in the middle of the night ripping their trees apart, but it was friggin' worth it.

There's none around here though, and the local fruit markets only sell stale walnuts. :C

ma i totally forgot about the sugar coated gummie food group. when i was a kid, the grocery sold the bulk boxes that the corner stores use to sell sour patch kids and fuzzy peaches. when it was my birthday, i'd always get like a box of sour blueberries, sour patch kids and everything else sugar coated. sometimes i get some care packages friom home with those sugar coated cherry blasters, and like the hallowe'en mix bags. oh man, i'm salivating like a dog with splinters in his tongue.
so, i didn't mention it before but by participating in this thread you agree to the following terms:
1) send me candy
2) send my neighbour candy (who has the same name and address as me)

just kidding, folks.

Milky Ways that have been in the freezer for a while are the best.

Yum yum! Candyyy~

My absolute favourite kind of candy is anything sour. OMG, I love it. But these days nothing seems sour enough - I remember having these eye-wateringly sour sweets as a kid one time but since then nothing has really satisfied my need… Mum got me some super sour Chewits a while ago and they were just mild…

I also like Parma Violets~ oh god they taste like flowers but they're so good. I can devour packs and packs of them at a time. ^.^

For chocolate I like bitter chocolate best but after that, yes, Milky Ways are far too good to be real~ I'll also go for Mars bars, Bountys and Caramels. Creme eggs are just sex wrapped in foil… sticking your tongue in just gives total mouthgasms. :kitty:

I can't stand anything with nuts or biscuit in. I mean, I'll eat it, they're not totally awful~ but I'd much rather have something I didn't have to crunch. XD


Despite all that I'm not actually a big candy eater. XD
