Stranded with.... Halloween Candy!

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope all is well and you are having a great day so far! Today I am teaming up with Shay and Erika for a fun new series called "Stranded With" where you discuss three things you would take if you were stranded on deserted island.

For today's series, we are focusing on....

Halloween Candy!

I love this time of year because that is when some of the best candies come out (besides Easter) and I find myself eating more candy in the month of October than I do almost any other month of the year.  I think the December is a close second when it comes to sweets in general {so many delicious cookies and pies}.  

So here are my three picks of candies I would take with me if I could only take three with me to the island.

So in general, Reese's are my absolute favorite candy, but when the Reese's Pumpkins come out around Halloween, I am in heaven.  I am not sure what is different between regular Reese's and Pumpkin Reese's, but I love the Pumpkins.  I think the reason I like them so much is because they have a higher peanut butter to chocolate ratio than a regular Reese's.  Whenever I see them in a store, I'll grab one or two and throw them into the freezer at home.  There is something so delicious about frozen chocolate and peanut butter.  Yum! 


The next Halloween candy I think of and love is Candy Corn, but it's not just the candy corn, but the fall mix from Braich's that has the little pumpkins in it as well.  As a kid, my grandma almost always had this candy mixture in a bowl at her house and I always loved grabbing a few of them from the bowl.  As an adult, I still love them, but I definitely cannot eat them by the handful anymore as they are just so sweet.  


This is not necessarily a "Halloween" candy, but as a kid I was thrilled when someone had Dubble Bubble in their Halloween Candy.  For as long as I can remember, I have always love chewing gum and Dubble Bubble was the epitome of gum to me and continues to be a favorite to this day.


So these are the three Halloween candies I would take to me if I was going to a remote island (though I am not sure how well the Reese's would hold up in warm weather).  I hope you enjoyed this post today!

  1. Dubble Bubble was one of my favorite candies to get at Halloween as a kid. And, because it was so cheap, a lot of people in my community would give it out to trick-or-treaters. I can still recall that intense, sugary goodness during the first 3 minutes of chewing... Sadly, I can't chew it now bc it sticks to much to my dental work (which was probably caused by too much Dubble Bubble as a kid!).
