Candy
 
Anyone else love and eat candy all the time? If so what's your poison?

I have yet to meet a candy I don't like, but I like the old school maple nut clusters, and things like that I grew up on.

I'm just wondering how many other adults have a candy budget?

I am afraid I do not eat much candy.....

I love Butterfingers and Reeses P-nut Butter Cups, but I have to admitt I only eat a couple a year. And donuts...them I have to avoid also, I'm afraid the internet isn't big enough if I ate all I wanted to...:D

Keep the icecream under lock and key.

Really I'm the only adult that eats candy?

I don't believe it.

Are you guys eating salty stuff then?

Nope, gave up chips and soft drinks too.

Austin -

there a few aroun.

One is the old Pearson's Nut Goodie that has a lot of maple and flavor. The manufacturer (for decades) is local to St. Paul, Mn and the distribution is limited. - Sort of like some other old candy treats.

The old family ownership has changed and it may be available in a wider area. The first change was to switch from fresh roasted peanuts to cashews for new product and it was flop because of the lack of salt in the mixture. Somehow, salt enhanced many foods, especially if chocolate is involved.

I'll check them out. There was a site some time ago that old school candy.
