Snickers, Skor, Butterfinger.

All worthy.

I'd add in the venerable Heath bar to this discussion.

And for long bike rides, a Payday bar rocks.

Skittles, because there are lots of colours. This provides me the opportunity to fulfill my obessive compulsive organizational nature by sorting them all out by colour and arranging the piles in order of most to least candies.

Why are there never more yellow or green ones than red ones?

I took the liberty of fixing that for you. Everybody knows a woman is right when it comes to chocolate.

Wah. I can only list the candy I don't like - salty liquorice (blech), some funky marshmellowy candies from Russia, ANY FILLED CANDY (whew - that was easy) - oh yeah and those crayola colored Twizzlers - ICK!!!

Other than that ... I like most all other candy, some more than others - but I cannot really name a total favorite for I, a candyholic, cannot commit to just one type of candy!

Ohhhhh dear diet ... please forgive me for my admission!

Reese's peanut butter cups

I'm not sure why, but they have always been my favorite. Its also the first candy bar I ever gave my son. He was 6yrs old. I know, could be considered child abuse for making him wait so long. He went on for hours about how good it was. Now he is type 1 diabetic and can't have but a couple a year. So maybe I did him a favor not giving him a lot while he was younger.

Candy is candy - chocolate is a whole other matter. Get it straight.

From the queen of all things sweet & sugary.

Sweet tarts & nerds FTW BTW

Reeses, Snickers, Milky Way and Butterfinger.

A couple of things on the subject of the Butterfinger though.
-They're always broken. Always.
-They always get caught in your teeth. Always.

Toblerone, in the real European size that can almost be used as a quarterstaff, not the finger-long American version.

The best candy is made by hand by people that know what they are doing. Len Libby's here in Maine makes some very nice dark chocolate cashews. I love decadently rich truffles with a hint of liquor in them. Freshness counts. The biggest candy maker in Switzerland has tankers pick up the morning's milk. The next morning it leaves the factory all wrapped in chocolate. They even specify the breed of cow and type of grass. It's an attention to detail that is hard to find in the states.

Now that I'm in shape, I quite honestly am not a candy fan. I had a bite of a butterfinger the other day, and thought it was kind of gross.

Well, a lot of American places don't even bother using real chocolate, but try to call carob chocolate and get away with it.

This is why I end up heading to Breed & Co for real (not paraffin) based candy, rather than the local corner store... I rather occasionally eat something top notch than eat processed crap more often.

In the US, there are two things you have to either import or obtain from a small shop if you value any semblance of quality: Chocolate candy, and beer.
