I’ve got a confession to make – I really like those peanut butter taffy candies (aka Mary Janes) that only appear during Halloween. This of course brings about strange looks from the checkout lady, the bagger, and of course my wife. Still, I’m gonna eat me some peanut butter taffy when I get home tonight.

This line of conversation of course brings us to the Major Spoilers Question of the Day (obviously pronounced “you had one job to do”), which asks, “What candy do you secretly like, that a vast majority of people despise?

    Black jellybeans get spurned by many, but they find a home with me… in my belly!

    I love the Kerr Molasses candies. To me they just taste like Halloween. And I give them out every year.

    Candy Corn, but only certain kinds. The hard waxy kinds can go straight to the realm of evil souls. Back in my trick-or-treating days (yes, when dinosaurs roamed the earth), I would more often than not trade a tootsie pop or a roll of smarties for a little bag of candy corn from other kids because almost NOBODY where I lived actually wanted theirs.

    The crispy, little Atkinson’s peanut butter bars are my choice among the legacy candies. On the other hand, any piece of Bit O’ Honey would likely never emerge from the dregs of my Halloween loot.
