    Yes and yes.

    Actually, I'd like to nominate little tiny candies in individual wrappers as my least favourite. Way too much packaging, and you know those things are at least five years old.

    Regardless, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are the best Halloween candy this side of my husband.

    I really don't mind candy corn; I have a recipe to make it from scratch... it is a whole lot of trouble to produce something that takes almost just like the kind you buy. The one I really hate is Necco wafers... I don't know how they have the nerve to call it candy.

    I have always been a big fan of candy corn (and those pumpkin-shaped things, too). It's like the quintessential Halloween candy to me.

    But two of the biggest offenders in my bag as a kid were Mary Janes and Squirrel Nut Zippers. The paper was nearly impossible to remove and tasted vaguely of soap. They also tasted old, probably because no one ever ate them and just kept regifting them. They were the only candies I'd throw away.

    Ugh! to all those people who like candy corn. It boggles the mind how people can like sugar flavored wax.

    Halloween Candy (these I associate strictly with Halloween)

    Favorite: Caramel Apples


    Least Favorite: Candy apples or Candy Pumpkins (tie)


    PS... I like (don't LOVE) Candy Corn. As a kid I used to eat the white first, then the orange, then the yellow in that order ..... talk about a little OCD... haha

    Same here, but some of the candy is not as good as it used be though.

    They used to make this chewy like stuff with peanut butter centers... they came in orange or black wrappers. Last one I ever tasted was awful. Mary Janes (if they still make them) also started tasting like crap some time ago... and Tootsie Rolls like anything but chocolate. You guys who say you hate them haven't a CLUE what they used to taste like.

    Snickers are always good.

    Agree.... I used to love the pb/confection candy (in the black/orange wrappers) and same as you... last ones I got were terrible!
