When someone asks me what my favorite part of Halloween is, I really don’t have a problem answering that. Well, for one thing, it is definitely not the Halloween costumes. And the Fall decorations are nice, too. But for me, it is definitely all about the candy. I thought I would share my favorite Halloween candy with you.
But, before I even type my first favorite, I wanted to make something very clear: I am not ashamed of raiding my kids’ Halloween candy stash to find my favorites.
Glad I got that off my chest. I feel so much better now!
My favorite Halloween candy:
- I would have to say that Tootsie rolls are my absolute favorite Halloween candy. My kids now this, and they just hand them over without question. I have such great kids.
- Swedish fish are next on the list. You don’t find too many people that hand those out, so when I do get them, it really is a treat!
- And who can talk about their favorite Halloween candy without mentioning Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The kids aren’t fans of peanut butter so they have no problem sharing these with me! Yeah!
- And here is the absolute best one. Pretty much, my favorite Halloween candy is any candy I get to eat with my family.
Seriously, spending time with my family is far more important to me than any candy. I am amazed how over the years my views of holidays have changed. Not just Halloween, but with all of them. It’s not all about presents or what I get from others. I am hoping that I can instill that feeling in my sons, so that one day when they have families of their own, they can look back and feel the way that I am feeling right now. The holiday is about love, family, contentment, not just the candy.
But that doesn’t mean I will say no to one of these treats above!!
