Post your Candy!

For the past few months I've taken a huge liking to Haribo Sour Gold-Bears. I believe it's become one of my favorite candies.

I also love chocolate and the Ghirardelli brand is one of my favorites.

So, what candy does everyone like to eat?

I grew up on Kinder Surprise eggs, which are actually ILLEGAL in the USA (people bringing them from Canada for their relatives in the US have had them confiscated and been fined thousands of dollars per egg (they are illegal in the US because you can't have an inedible substance inside food):


While I still like the occasional toy, I much prefer to get that amazing chocolate from their bars:


Oh, and it's not the English word "kind-er", it's "kin-der" or translated from German "children" or think of "kindergarten" (children's garden).

I also go crazy for candy corn every Halloween, but it's not as interesting a story.

That's a clever concept. Never have seen toys inside chocolate eggs before. I can understand why they are illegal in some countries.

I like the old fashioned plain Haribo Gold Bears



For chocolate I love a lot but will post the Lindt Chili Dark Chocolate

Lately I've taken a liking to these delicious chocolates!

I keep them in the fridge so they are icy cold!

As a kid I used to love Tobler candy bars. Now the only Tobler I can find is the Toblerone and while it is tasty, it is nowhere near my favorite. Lindt seems to have become the top selling Swiss chocolate at least in the US. I like some of the Lindt chocolate as well but I do miss my favorite Tobler bars - and what sucks is I can no longer remember the names of the two that were my favorites. I think one was called Noisetta but not sure how clouded that memory might be.

I dont eat candy.

The occassional chocolate, but no chocolate can beat raw cacao beans.

Somehow the very delicate and rich flavour is distroyed during the process of cacao powder and chocolate making.

I had forgotten those candies existed. It's been a couple of decades since I last had one. Not sure if they are legal in the USA.

There's a show about making Moonshine on television and they made Apple stack cakes with a little moonshine to give it that extra flavor.

The milk chocolate ones with Brandy in them are delicious. Can't remember the name off hand but there's about 1/8 of an ounce of Brady in them.
You usually only see them around the holidays and specialty shops.

Quite common here, a pretty common brand is this
Mon Cheri - Wikipedia

But there are better ones, chocolates from Lindt for instance.

Do you have these in the US
Chocolate-coated marshmallow treats - Wikipedia
?

Technically, I think the article is wrong and it's not like marsh mallows, it's just sugared egg white foam. Very soft.

They were called "Negroes Kiss" here and elsewhere for decades, then they changed that to "chocolate kiss" to be pc, even though there is hardly any chocolate in these, just a paper thin coating.

When I was a kid, some places like some kiosks would sell these squashed in a bun.
So weird.
I don't know if this is still the case.

Those remind me of Moon Pies, they toss them to the crowds during the Mardi Gras parades!

i tend to be quite fond of Haribo Gold gummie bears, but if i can't find that, i will settle for the candy that happens to have sugar in it.

If i enjoy a cup of sugar with a little coffee in it, does that count as candy?

I used to drink coffe like that, but not anymore, I have a distaste for sugar in coffe now.

These days my favourite candy besides of raw cacao beans would be beef jerkey.

I like my Coffee Crisp:



I actually dislike real coffee, get my caffeine from cola drinks.

I'm torn between:





...love Ms Dulfer - she rocks, but gotta give the nod to Cameo, the Michael Brecker solo tilts it.
