Last week, we shared some of our tips on how to stay healthy and minimize stress by being mindful of your sleep schedule and eating habits. However, today is Halloween, so we’re going to take a side step and allow ourselves to indulge our sweet tooth!
Back in the day, Halloween meant getting excited for getting (hopefully) a few months worth of candies on top of getting dressed in silly costumes. It’s too bad that adults are not allowed to trick or treat. Those are bittersweet memories. So in honor of our days of trick or treating, we would like to share our top/bottom three candies.
1. Pixy Stix
I was pretty obsessed with Pixy Stix, and I distinctively remember begging my mother to get a giant box of them at Costco.
This one is classic. I mean, unless you’re allergic to peanuts, how can you say no to caramel, peanuts and chocolate all rolled into one?
Again, one of those candies where I was addicted to for a long time. Creamy, sweet and chewy — these just hit the right notes.
Chocolate + peanut butter is always a winning combination. I always dug through my candy to find these first.
3. Twix Minis
A cookie candy bar? Yes, please.
Oh, Lord. Where do I even begin? I just loathed getting Tootsie Rolls. To me, it just meant the person was just plain lazy in getting candies. However, I was okay with Tootsie Roll Pop.
I always thought I would grow into liking Twizzlers but that day never came. Even to this day, something about the taste is off-putting. I guess it doesn’t help that I’m not a fan of real licorice.
Gum is completely fine on regular days but Halloween? Come on. It’s just not that special. Even the bubblegum tape one is boring.
My Halloween haul every year seemed to consist of 50% Tootsie Rolls. And unlike Jeeah, Tootsie Roll Pops are a no in my book as well. As soon as I reach the center, it goes in the trash.
2. 3 Musketeers
Stranger Things was right. Anyone who likes pure nougat cannot be trusted.
3. Pixy Stix
Sorry, Jeeah and other Pixy Stix lovers. There’s just too much sugar and not enough originality.
