4. lion bars
5. butterfingers

otm!! my whole life i thought it was just my shit luck that my candy buttons were the ones to which the paper would stick. but apparently they're just the more retarded candy ever

theyre euro candy i think, basically hazelnut snickers bars with kit kat stuck in the middle

although the Lik A Maid was popular when i was a kid, in retrospect it seems pretty lame

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 24 March 2009 16:53 (ten years ago) link

yeah lik a maid was retarded

(lbrah) (harbl), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 16:56 (ten years ago) link

seems like a gateway candy to flavored cocaine imho

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 24 March 2009 16:57 (ten years ago) link

it's lik m aid and i still like that shit when i'm really really really diabetic

WOOKIE JOHNSON (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:04 (ten years ago) link

i feel like there should be separate divisions for chocolate related and not chocolate related

I will "Build This City" on your GODDAMN GRAVE (jjjusten), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:05 (ten years ago) link

obv chocolate should probably be in scare quotes there but whatever

I will "Build This City" on your GODDAMN GRAVE (jjjusten), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:06 (ten years ago) link

yes i agree--chocolate candies are imo the pinnacle of candies and shd not be judged in the same way that non-chocolate candies are

rip dom passantino 3/5/09 never forget (max), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:08 (ten years ago) link

divisions should be acidic/spicy/chocolate/nutty/gum/solid state sugar/cocaine

WOOKIE JOHNSON (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:09 (ten years ago) link

yall are underrating lik m aid, shit was great. eating the stick was the best part, too n/h

Leif ericsonned (k3vin k.), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:12 (ten years ago) link

forks are acidic and sour the same thing in your taxonomy? bcuz then i am totally down with it

I will "Build This City" on your GODDAMN GRAVE (jjjusten), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:17 (ten years ago) link

i'm going to give that a tentative yes.

WOOKIE JOHNSON (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:19 (ten years ago) link

there should maybe be a licorice and/or "weird tasting" category too.

WOOKIE JOHNSON (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:20 (ten years ago) link

my step-great-grandmother used to bring us licorice and/or weird tasting candy from germany. it was pretty gross.

(lbrah) (harbl), Tuesday, 24 March 2009 17:25 (ten years ago) link

Sometimes i really like anise flavored candy; mostly the little licorice pellets and seeds at indian restaurant doorways

serious question how do you pronounce anise is it like a-NIECE or AN-iss because the latter makes me think of anus and giggle ^_^

(lbrah) (harbl), Wednesday, 25 March 2009 01:07 (ten years ago) link

I think it's the latter.

I love licorice and/or anise flavored candy. I also love the following which most people think taste like soap:

For chocolate type candy I think I have to vote for Creme Eggs. Mini eggs are a close 2nd.

I'm pretty sure it is the former.

wheeee! candy gifs!

i used to eat a lot of candy until i was about 27, and then my body decided that candy made me sick and fat. so i don't eat candy anymore (sugar was a really hard habit to break - i think it took 4 or 5 years). but i can still love it from afar. i still think the science of finding perfect combos of texture + flavour is what makes candy awesome.
(i too think chocolate candy is a totally dif category)

- cherry nibs - the best - http://www.hersheycanada.com/en/products/details/twizzlers/images/full_nibs.jpg
- anything sour gummy
- those 'healthy' berry-juice gummies
- skittles!
- runts or other small candies with hard exterior, powdery interior
- twizzlers, cherry or licorice
- starburst/mambo

Odyssey Dong (how's life), Thursday, 13 September 2012 17:23 (seven years ago) link

my tastes in candy have expanded and changed as i have gotten older.

my taste in hersheys miniatures has been widely disseminated across ilx.
watermelon and green apple jolly ranchers are a treat. i have a new taste for skittles of all types. still love runts and spree. twizzlers i think i have always been into; prefer regular black licorice and strawberry to the pull-and-peel variety, but i like all of them. starburst are good, especially the pink ones. sometimes i eat reg or peanut m&ms. i no longer like reese's products. thank you.

boston baked beans - yes

the most astonishing writer on ilx (roxymuzak), Thursday, 13 September 2012 22:07 (seven years ago) link

i love cadbury flake and mint aero chocolate bars. english chocolate is my favorite because it tastes kind of muted and doesnt feel like its coating my throat and suffocating me to death like some american or german chocolates.

the most astonishing writer on ilx (roxymuzak), Thursday, 13 September 2012 22:08 (seven years ago) link

the powder at the bottom of a bag of sour skittles. this should be sold independent of a skittles candy. it makes my entire mouth hurt, but especially the tongue part.

i know your nuts hurt! who's laughing? (contenderizer), Friday, 14 September 2012 00:06 (seven years ago) link

I really like jelly beans but jelly bellies are insultingly overpriced

iatee, Friday, 14 September 2012 00:11 (seven years ago) link

the jelly belly factory tour in fairfield ca is totally worth it tho, you get to see a picture of reagan made out of jelly beans, among other things, and then you get free jelly beans instead of paying like $5 a bag

iatee, Friday, 14 September 2012 00:15 (seven years ago) link

i got my sister kelly some of these awesome wine flavored jelly things once but i dont know what they were called. they might be british? they were good

also has anyone tried these "darksided" skittles lol

jello my future biafriend (roxymuzak), Monday, 5 January 2015 19:39 (four years ago) link

yes b/c that's where they moved the lime flavor!

example (crüt), Monday, 5 January 2015 19:40 (four years ago) link

it really brought out the "dark side" in me when they changed the green skittle to apple flavor

example (crüt), Monday, 5 January 2015 19:43 (four years ago) link

ugh, i didnt know that happened. i like skittles but dont eat them very often. this is sad news indeed

Those can definitely scratch a certain itch you didn't realize you had. I wouldn't want to eat them often.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Thursday, 22 January 2015 20:31 (four years ago) link

Yeah, I have trouble eating fruit slices in moderation so buying a bag is basically like buying a stomach ache, but until the part where I want to barf, it's a sweet fucking ride, man.

^never heard of these until now, but I'm intrigued by any candy that inspires so many theatrical displays of revulsion -- "they ruined my childhood", "they're a blot on Canada's human rights record" etc. I can't think of any American candy that's so widely hated except maybe Necco wafers
