Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter! Ours was great and I enjoyed my little blog vacation. However, I'm glad to be back for this week's Tuesday Ten!
Do you know that today is National Jelly Bean Day?? Well, it is!! In honor of this "special day" and, since Easter was this weekend, Rabia and I thought it would be fun to sure our favorite candies for this week's link up.
I definitely have a sweet tooth and I love candy. I try to keep it out of the house because if it's here I simply can't resist! I put it out occasionally around holidays, but I usually end up eating more of it than anyone else. In my opinion, candy should be sweet - not sour or tart. I don't care for Sour Patch Kids, Lemonheads, Smarties, or Sweet Tarts. I like things that are fruity and chewy. Or, of course, chocolate!
So, what are my favorite candies??
I've decided to break it down into two different categories - because I take my candy seriously, ya'll!
(A fruity rainbow in your hand!)
(Fruity, chewy. My favorite is red!)
(Fruity and chewy. Sensing a theme here?? Again, red is the best, but the "mystery flavor is always fun, too! )
(Yes, fruity and chewy!)
Good Jelly Beans
(Not the "old fashioned ones and definitely NOT the licorice flavored ones. Jelly Belly or Starburst jelly beans are the best!)
(There are so many varieties and I haven't found one yet that I don't like!)
(A little crunch and a little caramel! Yum!)
(The cookie crunch is the perfect compliment to the chocolate!)
M and M's
(A rainbow handful of chocolate!)
(Chocolate and peanut butter - kind of like the perfect marriage!)
I thought it would be fun to ask my kids about their favorite candy, too, since they just eggs and baskets filled with it. Here are their responses when I asked them to name their three favorite candies:
How about you?? Are you a chocolate lover or do you prefer something fruity?? Maybe you like the sour candy! Come link up and tell us which candies are your favorites!
