Definately Candy Corn Pumpkins would win out as all time fave!

Judy L.

While Opal isn't my favorite yarn, those prices are too good to pass up. Thanks!

My favorite Halloween candy is . . mini Milky Ways.


If I had to pick just one, it would be Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!


Pick just *one* favorite Halloween candy?!? Impossible. But if pressed, I would have to choose classic candy corn. Candy corn says "Halloween" in each bite of insulin-jolting corn syrup. Just thinking about it makes my heart race!


If I had to pick just one, it would be Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!


My fav is what we gave out this year, GIANT PIXIE STIX! They're fun, retro and pure sugar. It also seems I wasn't alone, lots of parents we're swallowing their pride and asking "can I have one too". There were also a couple of "I love you"s and one marriage proposal (although that may have been a combination of a redhead with giant pixie stix and a mint 79 thunderbird parked in the yard). OK I thought it was charming, hubby was mad, not about someone wanting me and pixie stix, about someone lusting after his car.

My favorite Halloween candy is the "adult" stuff we hand out to our friends when they bring their costumed kids by the house: Michel Cluizel 5 gram French Chocolate bars. The Mangaro Milk Chocolate makes me swoon. Mmm. Must show restraint, must not turn the porch light off and eat them all by myself . . .


Who doesn't love them - Reese's Peanut Butter cups! I swear they used to taste a little different though when they came in the paper wrappers instead of the plastic ones they come in now.


Without a doubt, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Hands down!


While I usually say anything chocolate, when Halloween comes around, I want Smarties. I still have a bag of them sitting on the table, but they won't last long.


Mmm... all those new yarns look so yummy.

My number one favorite Halloween candy is Smarties. I can go through an entire bag of those....


I love Hershey's with or without almonds, Halloween and year-round!


My favorite is Candy Corn, as well as those little pumpkins that are a variation on Candy Corn. My son only got one little packet of candy corn last night--and he gave them to mom!


Favorite candy to give away? That would be the Haribo gummy bears I gave out...every single kid was excited to get them! But my favorite to eat, because I never get them any other time of the year are the little Mounds bars! Beautiful yarns....


I'm having a hard time resisting the siren call of the Almond Joys in the hallway. We had *no* trick-or-treaters last night, so their melodious but deadly song is quite loud.


My favorite takes a bit of patience - frozen Milky Ways.


That's the cutest skeleton I've ever seen! I really love Milky Ways. Somehow I managed to end up not giving all of those away to the kiddies last night...

Candy corn, every time, is my favorite. I have to admit, when I buy a huge bag of it, I eat it until I'm sick ... even knowing I'm going to be ill doesn't stop me. How sick is that?


Resses Peanut Butter Cups!!!!!!!!!!


I can't believe no one has mentioned Twix Bars!


Definitely candy corn, because it brings back childhood Halloween memories and because you can't find it in France anywhere!


That Cherry Tree Hill is sooo pretty. The skeleton is so cute! My favorite Halloween candy is Butterfingers. Yes, I did dig through my kids' bags and snagged a few.


Three Musketeers all the way!


Old fashion "DOTS". They stick your teeth a little but reminds of going to the movies when I was a kid!


Most of the stuff my kids came home with last night was the same as you can buy all year round ... but in bit size version. So in keeping with a true Hallowe'en candy theme - my fav would be caramel apples!


Sugar-free chocolate, I don't eat sugar so that leaves most of the good stuff out.


Mounds for me, and yay my kids don't like coconut. I don't even have to ask, they just reject them and guess who eats them all...hehe!


Ok, where is the cherry blossom on your site? My favorite halloween candy is not really candy. It is popcorn balls.


You mean I can only pick one favourite? My all-time favourite would have to be Coffee Crisp, which is a Canadian chocolate bar that tastes like, um, coffee, but down here in the States I'd have to say Milky Ways. =)


3 Musketeers! Chocolatey, low(er) in fat, and they don't upset my stomach. (And we only have 3 left. Woe.)


Cherry Blasters are my favourite Halloween Candy.


My favorite Halloween candy is "snickers bars"...Our Jack Russell terrier is named Snickers also!!!

Melissa McKelvey's a tie between Nerds and Reese's Peanut Butter cups...the full size ones...not the little ones as they have too much chocolate and not enough peanut butter. :)

I cannot find my favorite Halloween Candy anymore.(boohoo)

They were called "Broomsticks" & they were banana flavored taffy wrapped in yellow waxed paper (kinda like how medium-sized tootsie rolls are wrapped). I haven't seen them in years, but it definitely brings back fond memories of Mom making us cover up our costumes with our winter jackets because it was WAY too cold outside in Iowa the end of October for JUST the costume. Sigh.


I love Caramel Apple Pops. Sweet and sour, and they last a long time, which spreads the calories out.


Peanut butter bars! That's my all-time favorite. I can only find them around Halloween anymore so I stock up.


candy corn. is there any other halloween candy? i wasn't aware.


My favorite candy is Butterfinger!


Candy corn is my most favorite Halloween candy. Love that sugar high!


I love, love, love basic, old-fashioned candy corn. Mix it with dry-roasted peanuts, and it's even better!


I'd have to go with Bit-O-Honeys.. Never buy them but raid my children's candy for them. Honest, they don't like them. I LOVE them..


Hmm... This year reminded me -- Butterfinger minis... Though I did have a hard time keeping my hands away from the licorice...

Lisa L.

Definitely Butter Fingers!


I always loved Mary Janes, they were hard on your teeth and almost impossible to unwrap without leaving some of the wax paper on- but, man...were they good:)

Susan Twohig

For the very first time this year, I found halloween packs of my absolute favorite candy bar - PAYDAY!


Definitely candy corn...yum!! And even better is candy corn mixed with salted peanuts...Try it, you'll like it!!


I love anything mini-sized (well,candy that is), but my favorite are the fun-sized bags of skittles!


Milk Ways and then you stash them in the freezer and eat them frozen!


Yumm! Mini 3 Musketeers.

Love the new yarn!

Valeska Gary

My favorite is the Mini Resses Peanut Butter Cups cause you can pop more of them in one sitting!


Nerds! Such crunchy sugary goodness!


Favorite Halloween candy? Mini Milky Way bars!


I'd have to say candy corn mixed with salted peanuts. Best Stuff EVER!

Lori Corman

My favorite Halloween candy would be...Peanut M&M's in the tiny single serving packs. They are best served that way to well...lets just say one can really go overboard and eat them like potato chips....(not saying who that "one" might be..) LOL Happy November everyone....

Michele in Maine

I love the mini-butterfingers!

Almond Joys rule, of course!


My favorite candy is Baby Ruth.

Jacki Marr

While I will always love the Reeses Cup for pure sugar enjoyment Smarties all the way. Got a giant bag this year and only had maybe 20 kids. Oh well, more for me.


Regular candy corn is my all time favorite but the small peanut butter cups are a close second!


milky way dark is my favorite candy but for holloween I have a once a year preference for sixlets.


I like it all, but I guess my favorite would be mini Butterfingers.

Leah Cossarek

I'm not a big fan of chocolate, and I really can't stand nuts in my food. That being said, I have a complete and totally unreasonable weakness for Snickers bars. I don't get it, but that's ok.

Snickers gets my vote.

My favorite has to be Hershey's Kissables--everything about this candy is tempting--just like my favorite sock yarns that seem so irresistably yummy :)


My favorite Halloween candy has to be the Reese's peanut butter cups. Yummy!

Jeannette in SSF

Wax lips or wax harmonicas (yes-I'm that old) have always been my favorite Halloween treat - little hard to find nowadays but there are places that have them.


"I don't like candy corn, no I don't like candy corn. I really love Halloween, but I don't like candy corn."

Ok, so the song fits me, but my favorite of all time is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I love the individual cups that you get at halloween - for some reason they taste better than the regular two cups package.

Mini Snickers are a close second!


M & M's in those teeny bags do it for me. Plain and peanut--I can't decide!


Candy Corn IS what Halloween is all about!


Gummi's, yum and not messy, hands stay clean for knitting


My favorite Halloween candy would be Mounds bars... however... since its my favorite I never buy it to hand out on Halloween because I'd end up eating it all myself and have nothing left to hand out to the kids


My favorite Halloween candy would be the smarties.


Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!!! Thanks for reminding me. Now I gotta have one... or two or three :)


It's got to be the candy corn! Since it's only available at this time of year, it's a good excuse to splurge on some! . . . and we've got lots left over from the trick-or-treaters.

Fern Braverman

Favorite? do they still make $100,000 bars, they were the best! If I can't find those, I'll suffer and have a snickers.

VT knitter

Baby Ruth is my favorite. My kids always save those for me!

My favorite candy is peanut M&Ms ... not just on Halloween but ANY time!


Tootsie Midgies or Candy Bones - either one can be in my treat bag and make me happy!!


Hmm, favorite Halloween candy? Well, given what I've been devouring from our leftover bowl of candy (we didn't get as many trick-or-treaters as we expected), I'd have to say Tootsie Rolls. Yum.


I love Caramel Apple Suckers because they last a long time. I do also have a fondness for candy corn mixed with peanuts- I put it in a little fabric basket ever fall. I once had a dog named Bear that loved candy corn and boy did recognize that basket. He knew the good stuff was coming out when that basket appeared. I think of him every year when it is time for candy corn and wish he was still here with us.


Butterfingers! Reminds me of when we were kids and my brothers and I sorted through all of the Halloween candy and swapped the stuff each of us loved.


I love the dark chocolates and they are hardly ever given away. When I find one it is like a treasure...

Sara K

100 Grand Bars all the way!

Sarah B.

Mounds bars, since no one but me likes coconut. It's usually the only time I have them (since I don't buy them or I'd eat them all!) Sadly this year my daughter scored 3 Almond Joys, but no Mounds. I'll suffer through them. :-)

P.S. The Ruby River Smooshy is gorgeous!!


For me: Almond Joy! They should make a sock yarn called "Almond Joy."




Iris and I think alike- Almond Joy is my current favorite. I would love to see that sock yarn.


Tootsy rolls and Mary Janes--I only eat them at Halloween!

Myrna Pollack



My mother, being from England, did not know about peanut butter and I didn't discover it until I was about 14! I feel like I had a deprived childhood and I've been eating peanut butter sandwiches, or sometimes just a spoonful, almost daily for more than 60 years. My fav Halloween treat is of course, Reeses peanut butter cups. Nothing else comes close.



Gosh, my first comment went out to lalaland.... Here I go again.
Licorice! May be the only food I would crave on a desert island. It isn't big in the Halloween department tho' so my second choice is Tootsie Rolls. They were always easy to sneak from the kids too! :)Remember you have to check the candy and make sure it isn't poisoned!

Susan Carey

Brachs makes this Halloween mix that has a brownish jug in it. They only put in two or three in a bag, but that is my all time favorite for Halloween. I don't even know the flavor...maybe maple, or rum or something like that, but it is the best and I always look for the bags that have more than one or two showing.


I have to admit that I'm not a candy person. BUT, I also must admit that the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is irresistable! So Reese's peanut butter cups comes in first in my one-horse race.


I didn't see this in the lists of yummies, but my favorite is popcorm balls. Way back they could have been home made, but now they come individually wrapped. Home made always tastes better. So I make them for myself and family.


This year I found a new candy. I was in a bag of assorted Halloween candies I picked up at the local candy store, Nana's. It is shaped like candy corn but a bit wider and the base is red. The flavor? A hint of cinnamon. YUM!

My favorite Halloween candy is the Nestle Crunch with carmel inside..eee...and then the Kit Kat bars.


My favorite this year was the white chocolate "MUMMY" lollipop my granddaughters made for me.


Every Halloween, we go visit our neighbors down the road a ways, who fix pumpkin pie and coffee for us. It kind of marks the beginning of "pumpkin pie season". It just doesn't get any better than that!


What would Halloween be without candy corn style pumpkins? Love those candy corn pumpkins.
