and...my husband absolutely will not put even one of these in his mouth! Apparently this is a requirement for being voted as my favorite candy. Who knew?
Which has got me to thinking...
What are his three favorites? And do you like any of them?
Oh but he does hate to narrow anything down and actually make a choice...let alone three.
This is what I squeezed out of him:
1) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I knew this one already. He loves milk chocolate that melts instantly on his tongue (think Dove and Cadbury's). I think the Cups are way too sweet but I like nibbling at the crimped edges of these bad-boys...yeah, that sort of behavior gets me into trouble.
2) Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar with or without almonds. My guy is not a risk taker and this candy bar will "Always be good." I'll eat this...but it's always accompanied by a wish for REAL chocolate (think at least 70% cocoa content) and that puts a damper on my enjoyment of this stand-by treat.
3) This is where his decision making abilities failed him. "Toffifay...I liked those. Nestle Crunch? I really liked Whatchamacallits...." Poor guy. Of those, only the Crunch bar piques my interest. I enjoy the contrast of textures but the chocolate is lost but for the sweetness. Taking a very-fine-indeed product such as the cocoa bean and smothering every aromatic, intense, complex and bitter quality with sugar is a chocolate travesty!

M&Ms (dark please)
Carr's Ginger Lemon Cremes (so help me I"ll eat an entire box in one sitting if no one intervenes)
A long time ago, my answers would have been Mounds, Bit O Honey, and Charleston Chew, but the latter two items are difficult to find nowadays.
Re Goldenburgs Peanut Chews:
My husband loves these. When we lived in Philly he especially enjoyed tormenting the pigeons in Washington Square Park. He would throw a chew down, and suddenly, Alfred Hitchcock lived. The birds would go insane over the chew (frantically pecking but unable to eat it) until some brave enterprising squirrel dived into the mass of freaking feathers and made off with the loot. Poor pigeons.
