question of the weekend: What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

I’m not talking about the fancy stuff: your boxes of Godiva, your Leonidas, your Lindt truffles. I’m talking about the kind of cheap sweets that get thrown into treat-or-treat goodie bags:

What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

I never liked anything that wasn’t chocolate. Candy corn? Disgusting. Bit-O-Honey? Yuck. I never liked all the chocolates either, but I loved Three Musketeers, which remained a favorite of mine till well into adulthood. I had one again recently — Sony held a press event for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs at Dylan’s Candy Bar in Manhattan a while back, at which we could have stuffed our faces with as much candy as we liked. I had a mini Three Musketeers, and it reminded me why, if I’m gonna have some chocolate these days, I make sure it’s really good chocolate, not the junky kind: it was too sweet and too cloying and not very satisfying, as a chocolate experience.

The junk candy I will still eat today, once in a while: Hershey’s Kisses. But I can’t have them in the house, or I’ll eat the whole bag.
