James Salt Water taffy is pretty good. From Atlantic City.

The white chocoloate Reeses cups are good, too. Probably my favorite DQ Blizzard is Reeses cups. The best way for Reeses Pieces... leave them in a warm car all day... the heat melts the peanut butter, but the candy shell keeps them intact.

Gotta go with the cup. They have cups now that have real nuts in them. Those are pretty good.

Chocolate non-pareils ( the little white dotted candies) or Toblerone bars.
Toberlone bars melted in a fondue pot to dip fruit rokks!

Candy corn.
The kind mixed with the chocolate flavoring is the best.

Autumn Mix FTW!

Mix candy corn and peanuts together tastes like a Pay Day bar.

Or mix the candy corn, M&Ms peanuts, cashews and almonds in a big bowl. Veeeeerrrry tasty!

Mmmm...Toblerone. I haven't had one of those in awhile.

My favorite would depend on what kind of mood I'm in. Either Peanut Butter M&M's or Skittles.

My movie candy is Milk Duds. I don't know why, but that's the only time I ever eat them.

So do I. Maybe that's why I don't eat them otherwise. It's just a force of habit at the movies. I eat them really slowly, so a box usually lasts for most of the movie.

Milk Duds are my second choice at the movies. I prefer chocolate covered almonds but not all movie theaters have them.

Too crunchy. I don't like eating popcorn at the theater for that same reason. I don't mind, or even notice, when someone else is eating it. I just feel like I'm being loud whenever I do. I'm just weird like that.

OK... re-reading it again (for the fourth or fifth time now) I see that could be like that...

Here's how I read it the first half-dozen times: "I like fruity stuff: chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel." Notice the color between stuff and chocolate.

Reeses mini Cups, by far

It used to be Sweetarts, but they kill my teeth now.

My movie candy is Milk Duds. I don't know why, but that's the only time I ever eat them.

The best movie theater candy is either Red Vines or Hot Tamale. When I was a kid, we would get our graveyard pops and drink them through straws made from Red Vines. We would also have contests to see how many Hot Tamales you could get in your mouth at one time. It only counted if you could chew them and get them down afterwards. it's amazing I have any teeth left and didn't choke to death. :rolleyes:

Aplets & Cotlets 14oz.
The blossom-fresh flavor of crisp Washington apples, the tangy goodness of ripe apricots, and the nutty richness of crunchy English walnuts have made our namesake Aplets & Cotlets our top sellers since 1920. We slow-simmer the ingredients together to condense the rich flavors, and bring a smooth, gently chewy texture to our candies thatís easy on the teeth and impossible to resist. We still do most everything by hand, just like when we first began making our famous candies, so you can taste the nostalgia in every bite. Our 8-oz. box contains 8 pieces each of Apple-Walnut and Apricot-Walnut candies.

Salt water has nothing to do with it. Just the ingredients used, (not salt water), and the pulling process.
