There’s one thing that everyone loves and looks forward to on Halloween: CANDY.

Here at the, we’re especially fond of it, so I asked our regular writers to tell us about their favorite Halloween treats (and have since been blamed for a binge on their supplies of Stage 1 Halloween candy).

Read on, and let us know in the comments what your favorite candy is!

What, I need to limit it to 3? Very difficult . . . yet not so much. Start with the basics.

The Reese’s Cup. Always the dominant candy in the bowl. First gone every time. And then we move to the Clark Bar, my favorite when I was growing up. Halloweens were measured by how many Clark Bars I got. The third was the hardest choice, but I have to go with the Peanut M&M. No melt for the golf bag, and full of candy coated deliciousness.

Almond Joy — because, really, I always feel like a nut. Coconut goodness inside, delicious chocolate coating on the outside. Smooth and simple.

Junior Mints -- Light, creamy, and refreshing, the perfect candy after a meal– or just, whenever.

Twizzlers -- yes, I still like to use these as straws to drink my soda with. Chewy and perfectly satisfying.

Adam writes about Surge Protectors (a lot), and loves telling people about Free Shipping and No Sales Tax.Adam

In addition to writing far too much about the best surge protectors available and evangelizing Vann’s Free Shipping and No Sales Tax message to the world, Adam also (unsuccessfully) tries to resist candy and loves to write about himself in the third person. Read more by Adam here!

5th Avenue — I’m not even sure if this candy still exists, but there’s something amazing about the combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and crunchiness that I continually crave. Thankfully, I also have difficulty finding it. If you know a good source for them in Missoula, please don’t tell me.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Miniatures – Alright, I know George already described this one, but I have to second this. I am apparently a fiend for chocolate and peanut butter. The only issue I have is that I love the miniature ones far more than the full sized cups, and those tend to be far more expensive even after Halloween is over.

Twix — I’m not afraid to admit that the commercials of people selfishly hoarding their second Twix bar completely and accurately describe my behavior with this candy bar. I love the chocolatey-caramel wafer taste wrapped in golden packaging. And no, you can’t have any.

Now it’s your turn! Let us know your favorite Halloween Candy in the comments.
