I saw a sale on candy today which made me realize, wow, I’m probably going to get trick or treaters this year! It’s been a few years since I lived somewhere kids went door to door.
When I was a kid, I was ALL about the chocolate bars. My favorite might be Mounds, Nestle Crunch, or Kit Kat, depending on the mood. Rollos if they’re fresh. And I felt cheated when I got a sucker. I mean, I ate them. But I ate them last, and with lots of resentment.
What about you, what was your favorite candy?
And if you have kids, do you think tastes have changed? It really would be ideal if something other than chocolate was in vogue now, so I don’t end up scarfing the whole bowl and hiding in my basement with the lights off come October 31.
I think Victor Bayne is a nougat guy. He’s not quite sure what it is, but it intrigues him.
Speaking of Halloween, I’ve been creating T-shirts in my spare time, after my writing brain is fried for the day. If you’re looking for something less slutty-banana-costume to wear on Halloween, how about my Dia de los Muertos T-shirt?
