I consider myself to be a bit of a candy aficionado from a long line of candy aficionados. I remember many a night when my dad made a candy bar run. He would come back with one of each of us. Mom's was always a Chunky and the others varied. I have traditionally been more of a sugary candy lover. When we were growing up, Joey and I would collect bottles in the wagon and walk the few miles to the nearest drug store and turn the bottles in for $.10 a piece. (We lived in Michigan.) Splitting our profit we would each get a small bag of Laffy Taffy, SweetTarts, wax lips, pixie sticks, etc.
Just recently I have taken a greater liking to candy bars. I appreciate the traditional Snickers. My favorite of the new ones is Take 5. But Amanda and I both agree that the best one is a Butterfinger. It is the perfect mix of chocolate, salty, sweet, crunchy, chewy. Mmmm. I'm actually about to finish one off right now. I love an afternoon snack of a Butterfinger and the remaining gulps of my morning coffee.
How about you? Sugar candy? Chocolate? What's the one that you reach for when you need a sugar fix?
