Favorite candy

    Perhaps this will spur another SportsJournalists.com favorite contest.

    I just bought a container of dark chocolate non pareils, the same kind my grandparents used to have in their house. That's my favorite of all time, always will be.

    What about you?

    Xan, I used to buy nonpareils at the downtown mall on dinner break when I worked the desk. But your question made me think of all-time fave candy and the candy bar that I used to buy every day after school in the early 70s crossed my mind.

    Peter Paul candies did a big ad blitz for it, but it wasn't enough to make it last. It was a candy bar called "Peanut Butter (in small print) with (big print) No Jelly." It was kind of like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup only in the shape of a candy bar and it was much better. The peanut butter had little crispies in it and it was much more peanut butter than chocolate.

    I did a google search on the name and could barely find it.

    Anything with peanut butter. Except Mary Janes, that is.

    The new dark chocolate mint Milky Way has cracked my all-time top five.

    Also been on a fruit-roll Tootsie Roll kick as of late.

    For mainstream, Hershey's with almonds.

    For commercially available but non-mainstream, I like this chocolate-covered marzipan from Germany:


    But there's a place around here that makes their own candies. I like the chocolate-dipped strawberries and there's a chocolate truffle that's great.

    Usually when I crave sweets, though, I go for ice cream. Or pie.

    Truffles at good chocolate shops. For mainstream I would go either charleston chews or whatchamacallits.
