Candy Bar Cravings

All Week I have just been going berserk for Almond Joy candy bars. I have to have one every day - the vending machine sings its siren song and I give in. The strange thing is that normally I hate coconut. I just don’t understand it. Help me before I indulge again.

It’s all the old commercials they are showing on TV lately.
They are loaded with subliminal messages.
Today candy bars,tommorow the world.

For me its anything that has caramel in it… i cant walk by chocolate to begin with… but add in the caramel and im gone… I agree Lion… the commercials send such a brain message to people…

I used to have “Skittle Attacks,” where I needed to eat some Skittles immediately…

I guess i grew out of that, however…

Yer pal,

I must have M&Ms

What can I say Yankee, except perhaps:

Sometimes you feel like a nut…

I recently discovered Nestle’s Chunky. It’s a thick chocolate square with peanuts and raisins. I just have to get one at lunch every day on campus. One reason I like it is that it’s perfectly square, smaller than a typical chocolate bar. It’s not as much to eat, but it still satisfies.

After reading this thread I had to go out and buy an Dove bar (Dark Chocolate)

Every so often I get an overwhelming urge for a Mars bar…
I also am a sucker for Mallow Cups…Mmmmmmm

Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

Cadbury Fruit & Nut Bars…the 5 oz ones…the “Chunky” from hell. Mwuhhahahahahahah…

I admit it, I can’t walk past a Mr.Bulky or SweetFactory without loading up on JellyBelly “Sassy Sours.” My teeth ache too much to eat normal food afterwards. Sour candy has to be the worst for your teeth.

ohhhhh, now i want to eat reese’s
god they are good!

i also love twix!

Chief’s Domain -

Moon Pies- MOON PIES Goddamit- I woke up nearly 2 hundred miles from the nearest moon pie dying to have one one night. Horrible sensation. I could have beat down a nun if she had one stuffed in her habit somewhere.
Those and those pink snowballs from Hostess once.

Ice Cubes are so incredible.They’re imported from Germany I think(the chocolate ones!)

The Candy Greater Than All Other Candy Combined:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Hands down, the most delicious and perfect synthesisof salt & sweet, perfectly textured to go down easy. (assuming they are very fresh. Very fresh RPBC’s are exquisite…I’m not as impressed with ones that have sat for a bit and gotten kinda dry and crumbly.)

The only other candy that does it for me is See’s Butterscotch Squares, which are not really butterscotch at all, simply chunks of brown sugar and butter paste dipped in chocolate. Yum!

I go through candy phases, when I’m obsessed with one particular one for a few months, then move on…first one I can remember was Mounds, then Whatchamacallit, then Bar None (for a long time), then Pay Day. Right now I’m between phases.

Do they still make Bar None?..

And who else remembers the heavenly chewiness that was the Marathon bar!

Oooh Marathons! They were like long braided milk duds. I loved the old Mars Almond Bars (today’s version isn’t the same) Reggie Bars, and also Chunkeys.

“On the edge of sleep, I awoke to a sun so bright…”

I can’t go for more than a few days without Runts. I’d eat them until I barf if there were enough around.
