I don't know most of these as they're American sweets but I just wanted to post this link to tell people to boycott Nestle products:

I give away Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I am a generous soul. lol Actually I give them away so if there is any left, I can eat them. My husband is a diabetic so they are mine all mine. I know how Tsandi feels. Putting them in the freezer makes them even better. Great picture, Cate.

Checking in amongst the 33.9% who chose
the Reese's. What's not to love?

Elle:
I have a recipe for a Reese's cheesecake.
Think I could interest you in some?

Cate:
I agree with Serge. Your new avatar is great!

First choice, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Second choice, 3 Musketeers.
Third choice, Almond Joy
Fourth choice, Snickers

I wonder if that means I've got a split personality? LOL My husband is a diabetic as well, Elle. That's why there isn't much sweets around here. He will eat them all up! lol

I LOVE ALMOND JOY=my favorite-well, besides for Butterfingers! And Dark Chocolate M&Ms, but in this case, Almond Joy wins the day....I'll be home for Halloween and those little Trick or Treaters-we get tons of them....and I eat candy right along with them-no wonder I love Halloween lol! Noted/Shared

Snickers giant size, and a couple of Almound Joys would hold me over. I loved the Mars Bars toooo bad I can't find any around here.

Yeah....no one ever thinks twice about gutting out a poor pumkin....now do they? Do they? We massacre millions of poor little pumpkins every year....why why why! Oh the shame....the shame!! Worse yet, we carve their little faces up and put candles in them to show our inhuman treatment off for all to see, even our kids. SO...the next time you sit down to pumpkin pie, remember that a pumpkin gave his/her life so you could gorge yourself like a King, and then take a nap. Oh....the shame!!

I chose Almond Joy, by means of a dart thrown at my bulletin board... Most of these have chocolate, and I am a Chocoholic, Grade 1946. But my favorite candy wasn't on the list: Lindt Lindor Truffles! Oh the sinfulness!!!! Hershey's Kiss Truffles come nowhere NEAR the Lindt variety!

And then there's fudge... Oh my! There goes my fundament! My fudge recipe makes 5 lbs of fudge to die for! I have to remember to share the recipe... Someone please remind me!!!!!

AQctually, where I live now... My apartment is on the back side of a building, and no kids come back here on Halloween... So whatever candy I buy is MINE ALL MINE!!!!

Meant to say how appropriate regurgitating pumpkin is for the Washington Post. Plenty going on around there to make even a pumpkin sick!!!!

Also, Ron, what insight. Do gourds and other veggies have feeling we've not considered. I will be watching for your petition! Then we will be down to eating no fruits, veggies, meat, fish, no dairy products--just wine and chocolate. I'll get by. LOL

Noted. Thanks Cate! The Mars Chocolate Factory is 1and a half hours drive from me and there is ABSOLUTELY No Animal Testing. Australian chocolate is amazingly good, just goes to show you can't believe everything you read.
