Favorite Holiday Candy

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
My mom called me last night. During the conversation my stepfather came back from the store and handed my mom a grocery bag. (I'm listening to the conversation over the phone.) Mom asked him what was in the bag and he said 'Happy Valentine's Day! Turns out to be nine! bags of Brach's Cinnamon Jelly Hearts (candy). This is her favorite (mine too) Valentines candy and is only available this time of year. She promised me one or two bags for my own.

Now at Christmas we wait for Brach's Christmas Nougats. I like the peppermint ones and she likes the cinnamon ones. For Halloween and Thanksgiving it's Brach's Autumn Mix and Candy Corn.

Does anyone else wait for their favorite candy at certain holidays? What are yours?

My favorite candy comes out at Christmas time. I don't know what the brand is, but Save-On carries them and they are pepermint lollypops! Red and white striped like candy cains. I love them!

I LOVE the Necco brand conversation hearts. I actually have a bag sitting in front of me and I'm chomping on a couple pieces. LOL My husband surprised me with them a few days ago.

At Christmas my favorite is the cherry flavored candy canes.

At Easter it is the SweetTarts Chicks, Bunnies, and Ducks.

At Halloween it is ANYTHING!! LOL

Can you tell I'm a candy junkie??

there was a new truffle this year - white chocolate covered w/milk chocolate. they were available @ halloween & again for Christmas. the peppermint ones were too strong, IMO - i like the regular mint ones, tho.
i also like those chewy peppermint taffy ones - Brach? Broch?

I keep checking this thread to read about candy

I also thought of another one I really like the mint M&Ms that come out at Christmas. Oh and the pastel coloered M&Ms at Easter. I know the color doesnt change the way they taste, but for some reason I'll eat the pastel ones and the regular colored M&Ms are not that yummy to me. I donno I'm just crazy like that

Now I'm thinking about Cadbury Eggs...those are the best. And marshmellow chicks. I like Candy Corn, and those cheap peanut butter candies at Haloween, I think they are called Mary Janes. For Christmas and Valentine's, a Whitman's Sampler.

I can get the candy I love year round but I don't buy it very often as it can be expensive. But there is a candy store/ice cream parlor here that makes the most delicious candy chews. I love the peanutbutter ones. Chewy taffy with peanutbutter in the middle. They also have peppermint chews, caramel chews and almond chews. Soooo decadent!!!

Here is the link for their candy... www.dewarscandy.com

Oooh Holiday candy!

Easter - the marshmallow peeps, jelly beans, marshmallow bunnies, those hollow chocolate bunnies are my fav. Oh and the robins' eggs.

for Halloween - I really liked the candy corn kisses from last year - I love most of the halloween candy except the mary janes, yuck!

Christmas - the candy cane kisses, marshmallow santas, I really love all holiday candy, though especially the candy cane kisses.

valentines - the chocolate cream filled hearts those cinnamon hearts the big conversation hearts that are soft, any kind of chocolate, really! oh and I love the cherry heart suckers - I am a sugar hound in case you haven't noticed.

He's picking out which chocolate he would like.

I love the cinnamon jelly hearts and the Reese's Christmas trees and Easter eggs. I also love the chocolate eggs filled with coconut that are homemade.

HOLY COW!! THAT is a lot of chocolate!! I'm not a fan of those mixed packs like that b/c I never know what is inside them. I only really like the caramel ones. My mom's friend's husband works at Russel Stover and she gives us those for Christmas every year and my husband usually eats them all. I've never seen one that big, though! LOL

Those are my absolute favorite!!! Unfortunately, I can never find them here

If I wasn't so broke right now, I would pay someone to send me some

I love those cinnamon gummy hearts! And even better... Peeps now makes candy for most or all holidays and conversation hearts are always a hit with me. See, asking a pregnant lady to pick her favorite candy is like asking you cat to pick his favorite treat!
