I love holidays! From Valentines Day (conversation hearts) to Christmas (homemade candies from Elise and my MIL), and everything in between!
Sure, there are candies that are available year round, like M&M's, but those get to be boring pretty quickly. So, here's my Reason for Each Season, in calendar order:
Valentines Day - Red Hots and Conversation Hearts have my heart.
Easter - Cadbury Eggs, Cadbury Mini Eggs, and Robins Eggs are the best from the bunny.
Halloween - Candy Corn and Any Miniaturized Candy Bar are what I hope the Great Pumpkin will put on sale by September 1!
Christmas - Though I prefer the homemade stuff, I am a sucker for a good candy cane. I'm also a mint fan, and a lot of candies come out with minty stuff this time of year!
Whoa. There is nothing between Easter and Halloween for my candy addiction? No wonder I get sick of M&M's during that span.
Whoa again. Why is it that during the winter months, i.e. the months that I don't regularly walk because of the weather, are the months that I have the best access to sugary goodness? That really doesn't make sense. Fruits and veggies are better during the summer, but those don't make me feel fat.
What is your favorite holiday-related candy?
