Although Halloween is not an official holiday, it is one of the most highly-anticipated days of the year for millions of kids as they get their sugar fix in one night. But that doesn’t mean grown-ups can’t join in on the fun.

I think it is utterly impossible for us not to grab a candy bar or two (or more) from our kid’s grab bag of goodies or from a younger sibling or even that extra bag that you stashed away when buying candy this year.

So all this got me thinking: what is your favorite candy to munch on? I’m not much of a sweet tooth, although you could never tell from the amount of desserts and ice cream I usually eat when dining in the Bay Area. But I must admit that I am always a sucker for Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. There are a bunch of others that I didn’t mind, but those would usually be the first ones I separated out of the pile.

My least favorite? Probably Tootsie Rolls or Tootsie Pops. They just never did anything for me.

Let us know what some of your favorite candies are as you celebrate Halloween!
