Autumn Asks: What Is Your Favorite Christmas Candy Or Treat?

Some things are better because you only get them once a year.

Christmas candy is that way for me (and Robins Eggs at Easter).

Do you remember those cans of candy that had all kinds of stuff in there? I like the little gold ones that had peanut butter in them.

But my favorite "only at Christmas" candy was ribbon candy. Although that's crazy as an adult cause that's a messy business. You'd have candy flavored drool slipping down your arm.


This years I have found a new love. Well - hubs found it. Maybe they've even been around awhile and maybe its not just a Christmas thing either.

Move over Girl Scout Thin Mints -- there's a new sheriff in town.
And what is cool is that they are small. So you can eat one or two and not feel like you just ruined the whole days calorie allowance.

Lots of chocolate. Lots of mint. A just right pretzel crunch.

Makes me wonder about the other wonderfully bad things out there that I've been missing. So how about it? What's your favorite Christmas candy?


  1. I'm a sucker for really good quality melt in your mouth Lindt chocolates. I have a rule at Christmas that I only eat the very best candy and really enjoy it, it cuts down on the guilt and the pounds later. :o)

    Have a great Christmas!

  2. The thought of ribbon candy always makes me smile, but I never buy any... maybe because of the mess that I somehow forget about.

    My favorite Christmas time indulgence is a chocolate orange. YUM!

  3. My favorite is licorice caramels. So good. Here's a link to a link to the recipe.

  4. have such different candy to us here in Australia....I think I want to move!!!! LOL
