I read your question asking for my favorite Halloween candy and the first one the came to mind was Bit o’ Honey. I haven’t had that in years–I wonder if it still tastes as good?

Pam October 11th, 2012

I love eating candy corn at Halloween time. You bite off each little section of color. Halloween, a fun time for trying out all kinds of candy treats.

Christine Edison October 11th, 2012

Anything chocolate, especially Milky Way bars!

Katherine October 11th, 2012

Not very original, but Reeses Cups are my favorite! yummm!

Kathleen October 11th, 2012

Candy corn was my first thought – Dark Chocolate Milky Way bars came in second.

Rebecca October 11th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candy for trick or treating is fun size chocolate bars – YUMMY! However, if I get to include any candy it has to be popcorn balls – LOVE them!

Lisa Downing October 11th, 2012

My favorite has always been candy corn!

sarahbchicacgo October 11th, 2012

Tootsie pops are my favorite.

Jennifer October 11th, 2012

CANDY CORN! And for some reason, it only tastes good this time of year! :)

Tammy October 11th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candies are the miniature peanut butter cups.

Thanks for the chance to win the prize pack & the book, it looks amazing!

Wendy O October 11th, 2012

When I was young I would pray for houses to hand out Mallo Cups or milkshake bars. Now when I steal my kids candy, I like Reese’s Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Bars

Ashley K October 11th, 2012

I’ll have to go with a tried and true classic: those candy pumpkins that don’t have the nasty white bit of the candy corn:) I can see so many different things here I’d love to decorate with!

Jenn Somerset October 11th, 2012

The mini Kit Kat’s. They’re great for that late afternoon bit of chocolate fix.

MaryB October 11th, 2012

Baby Ruth bars and gummy coke bottles- the fizzy ones by Haribou!

nicole October 11th, 2012


Connie Martin October 11th, 2012

I love Candy Corn! I love those Happy Halloween buntings.

Samantha October 11th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. Most people I know can’t stand it, and they look at me like I’m crazy when I say I love candy corn, but I don’t care. It’s been my favorite since before I can remember!

Jane Samaniego October 11th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candy are the corn candy pumpkins! They are super sweet so I always eat them with a glass of milk in hand. Of course those aren’t individually wrapped so for give away candy I always have Almond Joy bars, green apple and caramel lolly pops and Tootsie Pops for sure in the hand out bucket – just in case there are leftovers. Maybe I should change my stratagie and give away bags of pretzles or something equally bland so I won’t be tempted!

Lori October 11th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candy is black licorice!

katrika October 11th, 2012

Any and all CHOCOLATE!!!!

Kara October 12th, 2012

My favorite Halloween candy are KitKats or Twix. I like the crunch.

Megan October 12th, 2012

Jellybeans – no doubt about it!

MelodyJ October 12th, 2012

I like Candy Corn.

Maura October 12th, 2012

Candy corn with the chocolate tops.

Susan October 12th, 2012

Baby Ruths are a long time favorite.

Lisa October 12th, 2012

By far, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I raid my kids’ candy for them every year!

ellen young October 12th, 2012

there is only one candy in the world i don’t care for and that is those orange spongy circus peanuts – ugh! however, IF i was stranded on a desert island, i guess i could eat them…

J.Suzanne October 13th, 2012

BEST Halloween candy ever, candy corn! It seems it’s freshest in October. Mixed with French burnt peanuts, Boston baked beans and Maple Nut Goodies is a holiday tradition for my candy dish ~

alh1203 October 13th, 2012

twix for sure

Throuthehaze October 15th, 2012

I like the mini Snickers

Laura Nelkin October 15th, 2012

Hands down Candy Corn!!!!!! Mmmmmm….

Paula October 15th, 2012

I will have to say carmel covered apples, not that i like them. It would be for the memories of the time shared with my mother and sisters while making them.

Brittany October 15th, 2012

We are addicted to Twix in the house. Thanks for this giveaway! :)

Catherine October 16th, 2012

I’ve learned too much about our food system over the past several years to go for many of the mainstream varieties… Can I opt for good old organic, fairly-traded chocolate? or roasted pumpkin seeds. Mmm. :)

Rachel October 17th, 2012

I always try and trade the kids for a couple of their Twix…but if they happen to get anything dark chocolate, THAT is my favorite!

Ann D October 17th, 2012

I’d just about twist yer arm off for Sugar Babies! Only, now I have a tooth with a crown, I can’t have ’em…boo-hoo! (And Kymm, Bit O’Honey still tastes wonderful!)

Jessica October 21st, 2012

Whoppers (the chocolate kind not the hamburger kind…)
