Has anybody heard of this? It looks pretty cool, but it has to get empty eventually. I wonder how it works.

Here is what is under that bowl.....

I'm with Confederate Soldier on this one. With the exception of the rare Payday bar, I don't eat candy.

I'll flat-out fuck up a stack of fresh-baked oatmeal raisin cookies, though...
Eeeeewwwwwww"

I love a good soft butterscotch, but they are difficult to find.
I love peanutbutter and chocolate, but a good one is hard to find.

Standard American candy is sugar with a bit of brown food coloring and chocolate flavoring in it with a ton of wax and chemicals.
I don't like super sugary candy, I like to actually TASTE the ingredients and flavors.

Ghiridelli chocolate seems to be a good brand that doesn't use more sugar and chemicals than chocolate.
So far, I like their chocolate. It's not super sweet, it's just sweet enough.

Other candies that are all sugar though, some I do like............Gummies, Blowpops, Tootsie Pops, and I love those after dinner mints with the jelly in the middle.

I do like SOME sweet American chocolate..............

Chunky
Mars Dark
Heath Bar
Cella
Mint patties

I used to like Reeses a lot, but they got REALLY sugary, and I can't stand them anymore.
Except for the Reeses Stix. Kinda like KitKats, but with peanutbutter filling. Mmmmm

I used to love Godiva chocolates.......but somewhere down the line, they changed to cheap cocoa powder and added in artifical flavors.
Gag.

Those are good.........but I don't care for milk chocolate. I prefer darker chocolate.
Those things are so good I can literally almost taste them just thinking about them. We have a small chocolate/candy shop near here and their dark chocolate is really good.

Hello, my name is April and I'm a chocoholic. Leo123 said that I could eat some Halloween candy now, but I figure the more candy I save, the more I can have later for Halloween and I only have a couple more weeks to wait. The only problem is that the spooky castle walls seems to be closing in on me. It seems like I keep hallucinating Jack-O-Lanterns stuffing candy bars inside their mouths,.. AHHHH!!!! I don't know if I can make it!!! This is basically what I look like right now:

I love, love, love and adore dark chocolate and eat a little every day.

BUT.

October....October is CANDY CORN season. Ah. I adore that sweet, gooey, fall treat. And with the pumpkins and the dark candy corn. Autumn Mix.

Mix it with pretzels or peanuts and I don't need any other Halloween candy. Actually. IS there any other Halloween candy?

Not more than chocolate, although I do also have a weakness for jellybeans and those 100% sugar orange slice things.

You are my people. My people are you. LOL

100% with you on candy. I love and adore chocolate, but not like "candy bar" chocolate--okay, call me a snob. I like Gharidelli (sp?) the like 86% dark chocolate and stuff. I will eat M&Ms too, but only as a second choice. But I don't want all that other stuff--nuts, caramel, goo.

Love Turtles, but I try to keep myself away from those.
I could make myself sick on those things!!!!

They must be delicious !
They are disgusting. Worse than candy corn. It's the candy that you give out if you want kids to avoid Trick or Treating at your house.

Chocolate is chocolate to me, but the good news is that I only have eleven days left and that I'm going to make it after all!! :D

I was SO afraid that when I saw you responded you would be like the cult of religious nutters/Halloween bashers running amok on USMB right now, so thanks for not being like them because even as a Christian myself they're really starting to annoy me. :rolleyes:

Meh. We don't avoid the holiday at my house, we do give out candy, but don't get into the super dark aspects of it. I wouldn't have let my kids dress up like the devil for Halloween or anything, and we don't decorate for it. My kids did do the usual princess/superhero costumes etc and go trick or treating. Most people at my church are similar.

I would wonder if the super anti-Halloween folks also forgo all pagan aspects of Christmas, such as Christmas trees.
