I succumbed.

I'm cruising through my grocery store, grabbing a few things for dinner (Cuban-style tacos) and it's just three items, honestly, sour cream, 6 pack of root beer, and hard shell tacos, I don't even need a list, I'm just running through the store chanting sour cream root beer tacos to myself and trying not to scare the other shoppers and
BAM

before I even know what's hit me I succumbed to the siren song of the Halloween candy aisle, which is Not.Freakin'.Cool at all because purchases must be planned and plotted and carefully budgeted (I am not an impulse buyer) and wow, there went an entire bag of candy into my shopping cart.

You win this time, chocolate! I shake my fist angrily at you.

K, guys, so 'fess up: what's your Halloween candy guilty pleasure?

As you can tell from above, mine is Kit-Kats... oh, and those little boxes of Junior Mints...and those mini Snickers and Three Musketeers...and sometimes M&Ms...

Yeah. I have no self control when it comes to fighting off the wiles of the Halloween candy aisle.

I love Halloween candy in that it comes in "Fun Size", which of course has no calories, otherwise they wouldn't be completely fun! And I am a sucker for all chocolate that comes in an assortment of fall colored foils. I am a crow with a bead on for that shiney stuff!

GIRL!!! I hit up the Halloween candy the other day too. i think it's something about them all being miniatures that gets me every time. This time I got the York Peppermint Patties (didn't think to look for Junior Mints) and Snickers. We had Kit Kats last week. I also love the small bags of Skittles because I can only eat a few at a time anyways. Or the mini boxes of Hot Tamales. Great. Now I'm going to have to go back for more candy. :) XOXO

My source of weakness would be mounds bars...chocolate and coconut. Yum....

...You're making a Cuban dish tonight? What time should I be over?

I bought the candy pumpkins a couple of weeks ago and I hide them under my desk, sneaking them throughout the day like they're CRACK.

Whoppers, Midnight Milky Ways, Reeses, Junior Mints, Candy Corn, Candy Pumpkins, and liquid sugar (aka Cadbury Eggs, which may or may not be available in pumpkin form at Halloween?)..

Reese's cups are my poison, although any milk chocolate has my number...please call.

Kristin Quinn said...

I was going to say candy corn, but Drollgirl's chant of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups caught my eye and now I'm definitely going to have to go with that...

Oooh delish. And it so totally happens when you walk down the wrong aisle at the grocery store. But sometimes wrong can be oh so right. ;)

Hershey's bag of assorted minis. You know, the one with the fun sized milk chocolate, dark, etc in "festive fall" colored wrappers.

Oh! And candy corns! It just isn't Halloween time without candy corns!

Oh!Oh! And apple slices dipped in that totally bad for you caramel in the little tub they put *right next to* the apple bin at the grocery store. Mmmm... caramel...

Wow. Well said. I have this never-ending battle with Reeses. And Snickers. And Milky Ways. And any sort of gummy or hard candy. I love Halloween.

denise said...

My Halloween favorite has always been the mini Snickers, but I've recently discovered these dark chocolate sea salt cashews that are sooooo good. It's the salty-sweet thing...
