It Monday and for me that means it's time for the Express yourself meme, check out others post here.
This week's question is what candy were you most happy to see in your trick or treat bag as a kid?
For me, it was always candy apples. Not many people gave these out, but those who did, I adored. I think it probably was, in part, the rarity of this item that made it so appealing and it just felt like a real Halloween treat.
Now, I would be a lot more reluctant about candy apples, as the last few years there has been a trend for people to candy onions instead, giving you a very nasty surprise, when you bite into them.
I can see the funny side, as most will have a mixture of candy apples and candy onions, so that it's a kind of lucky dip as to what you get.
A friend of mine had both her children come home with what they thought was a candy apple. One bit in and got what she'd expected, while the other bit in and got an onion. You have to feel sorry for the little cutie that got the onion. She must have been so disappointed.
What's your favourite trick or treat candy and have you ever had some nasty trick or treat candy surprise?
