i miss popcorn balls


#27

When my friends and I hand out candy, it’s hard for us to keep from eating all of the Reese’s Cups. Especially if we find the dark chocolate ones. Oh man.

Pretty much anything that doesn’t get stuck in my teeth is fine with me. I even like candy corn, in moderation, but especially if it’s the kind that’s made with honey and doesn’t just taste like sugary wax lumps. (I even kind of like the pumpkins)


#28

Candy buttons. Local deli (Seltzer’s!) sold it by the foot on a roll, some families would buy a length and cut it into short pieces for handing out.


#29

Balls…

I won’t take it quite that far, as I do really like mint + chocolate (my favorite ice cream flavor has usually been mint chocolate chip). But there is definitely something to the argument that one’s chocolate candy shouldn’t necessarily be reminiscent of toothpaste.

Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together = chocolate + peanut butter, now and forever.

ETA: I hope they print my manifesto about the correct way to eat an apple. I think everyone could learn something useful from my technique.

Oh it does. I’m not that much of a revolutionary.


#33

I doubt they will. The apple lobby is dominated by in-ciders.


#34

You haven’t tried my dark chocolate cake, made with Bigelow’s mint tea substituted for coffee. :wink:


#35

Any chocolate cake smart enough to employ mint instead of coffee gets my vote.


#36

Chocolate + mint can be a lovely pairing, and let’s not forget the classic combinations of mint + lime (mojito), mint + raspberry, and mint + citrus.

Mint is also a wonderful addition to curries, lamb, fish, and the classic tzaziki sauce for gyros and falafel.


#37

I will take everyone’s mint+chocolate stuff, and in return you can fish the coconut and peanut butter stuff out of my trash.


#38

Chick-o-Sticks (we don’t know what that is)

If it’s like a Chiko Roll, joy. :smiley:

So, not deep-fried then? Awww. :frowning2:

Perhaps this is why it’s not so popular in Australia. If we handed out deep-fried snacks, party pies, dimmies and soss rolls, I’m sure that would work.


#41

Results not released until Halloween?

I guess I’m giving out pennies and apples like every year.


#42

Don’t forget the travel-sized dental floss.


#43

You know I saw one of those at the store, and it was a quarter, and I was like, I don’t think I liked this - but then again - have I had one?

Result - I liked it! Though you want them fresh and crispy - or they get sorta sticky and gum up your teeth.


#44

Hey! I also provided a how-to. Wonder how many others? Should be fun to read.


#45

Aren’t all floss dispensers travel-size?

EDIT: I retract the question.
