Candy is good for all occasions, but since I had 3 to choose from I went with Snickers, Hershey's chocolate bar and M&M's.  I like my Snickers cold, Hershey's with almonds though Stovers chewy chocolates are better. M&M's are good just the way they are.  Mmmmmmmm Chocolate!

I've voted for peppermint patties, Three Musketeers and "other" -- i.e., KitKat bars.

When I was a kid, I had a hierarchy for Halloween loot. Any kind of chocolate-type bar was at the top. Fresh fruit was at the bottom; not because I didn't like fresh fruit but because I could have that any time.

Absolutely! Chocolate always goes at the top of the list!  ;D

Did you have a little trouble with the scissors, Paul?

 But, really I'd like to substitute the Reese's Pieces with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (my real favorite Halloween candy).

I think they are the favorite for a lot of people, Amanda.  Several years ago, my local paper did an informal survey asking kids what their favorite Halloween candy was and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups won by a wide margin.  The article was published a couple weeks before Halloween and a lot of people must've read it, b/c I clearly remember my son coming home with tons of Reese's that year!

I like chocolate in any form and I love Junior Mints (Peppermint Patties are also good).  Candy corn and Nerds don't excite me much, but I've always liked the sour apple and watermelon Jolly Ranchers.   :)

Nerds were considered a very, very cool and hip candy when I was in grade school.  LOL, I remember people thinking that the double-sided box (with the two flavors) was really a neat feature.  I think they're OK.  In general I'm not too much of a "hard candy" type of person.  And Nerds are really mainly tiny hard candies.
