Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about one of our favorite events of the year…Halloween! And what makes Halloween so amazing you ask? Well besides the costumes, cool movies on TV, and haunted houses. The main thing that makes Halloween so much fun can be summed up in two words HALLOWEEN CANDY (downside=accidentally eating a whole variety candy value pack whilst the kids aren’t watching). Now even though you can have candy any time, for some reason Halloween candy always tastes just a little better (you know it does…don’t pretend you don’t steal, I mean “save” a few bags of candy that suddenly are “misplaced” the next day. So since candy is an awesome and very important part of our childhood (and possibly even longer if you happen to be that teen or 20 something year old who plans to go in your Olaf costume, #nojudgement), I thought that we could rank our Top 5 favorite Halloween candy. Please let me know if I miss any of YOUR favs. So, let the sugar rush begin!
5) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
You have to love a candy that combines chocolate and peanut butter. Never since jelly has peanut butter found such a perfect companion in an edible form. Another great thing about this candy is they’re small so you can easily take them with you on the go, and snack on them during your 2nd and 3rd nap during math class (remember you gotta keep your strength up between naps).
Now we move on to a candy that has produced some of our fav commercials. I mean who doesn’t love those cute little talking M&M’s! You have the grumpy red one, the sweet yellow one, and the sassy green one. You gotta love a candy that has personality! Also again this candy also has the benefit of being portable so you will never be hangry again (sometimes coffee just isn’t enough). Anddd M&M’s are educational, for example: if you have 3 bags of M&M’s and you eat 2 then you now have 1 bag of M&M’s…see you do use math in real life, now reward yourself with a bag of M&M’s, internet high five!
3) Halloween Peeps:
This is the first year I’ve ever seen Peeps the shape of ghosts and other Halloween characters, and all I have to say about this is…IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!! I mean you get the deliciousness of peeps, with the fun of Halloween. Ok let’s think about this for a second. This candy is a marshmallow covered in sugar…sounds like a recipe for happiness to me. And the bonus is in a few months Easter is back, which means…MORE PEEPS! You gotta love your peeps.
2) Candy Corn
Now y’all knew that we had to include this one on our list because honestly Halloween without candy corn is like Thanksgiving without the Turkey, Christmas without Santa, Friday without Rebecca Black (yes I know that joke was corny but you loved it). And again this candy has the word ‘corn’ in it, so that must mean that it’s part vegetable and thus healthy for you, so you would actually be hurting yourself by not eating it. Yup, that argument might just work.
Yes we have to crown this candy as our #slayqueen of the candy. I mean you have a beautiful marriage of chocolate, caramel, and you can argue that the peanuts in it make it healthy so that means you can have double the serving right? Right! Another great thing about this candy is it is the perfect companion for when you sit alone in the corner scared out of your mind because you watched a Pretty Little Liars marathon at 2:00 in the morning with the lights turned off. You gotta love that comfort food.
