Fun Monday-Treat

Beckie is hosting fun Monday. She wants to know: I want to know what your favorite treat is. Is it sweet or sour? Is it plain or salty? Is it candy or chocolate? Is it homemade or store bought? For instance, if your favorite is chocolate, tell us what kind specifically - sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes not so much. I have heard a lot of talk about Junior Mints, but is it your favorite or just a tasty treat? It can be anything, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream or chips, maybe you have more than one favorite - that is ok, just show us your favorite(s) and tell us why you like it so much. C’mon, what gets you all juiced up?

It depends on the season, time of day, and how I'm feeling: Today, peanuts, popcorn and pretzels seem really yummy.

During the December holidays, it's chocolate/coookies/candies of all sort, especially homemade.
For Easter and springtime, it's these: Chicks n rabbits someone else already did the work !
For fall/halloween its these: Candy corn and its gotta be Brach's or nothing!
At ballgames I love taffy. It's a rare treat, must be cherry or strawberry!

I don't like much purple flavored, the only blue flavor I'll eat is m &m, lemon and lime must be careful with. I definitely don't want anything odd, like a cotton candy sucker, there is cotton candy, there are suckers, but n'er the twain shall meet! Classics such as caramels and tootsie rolls are all my style.

Feel free to bookmark me and come back to visit!

Chocolate and cookies are a year round treat for me! I have never been a fan of candy corn though!

I've never heard of craving seasonal treats! It makes perfect sense though. :)

Now seasonal treats is a good idea. I'll happily eat all your purple flavours!!

Stephanie said...

i totally get this, very few things i have as fav's are constant:)

Cotton candy sucker? That's just wrong! The texture totally makes the cotton candy.

Your chicks and rabbits reminded me of another favorite--Peeps. I like it when they're just a tad stale and cruncy, and they must be the yellow chicks.

Yes, that is right. Seasonal cravings make sense. I try not to let Halloween pass without having some Brach's candy corn.

I never did go for those cotton candy suckers. Can't get into 'cream soda' either. I like the way you color code your snacks.

You are right - Tootsie Rolls are always a good treat!

Pamela said...

When I eat candy corn I fill my whole mouth with them like a chipmunk

I am so a seasonal treat eater too! Are you ever left with a lost feeling in between holidays because there are no really great treats to eat? (Ok that sounded a little strange, I know)

sounds good to me, especially toffee, mmm chewy sticky toffee!

I found it hard to pick a favourite as there as times I crave different treats, sometimes sweet sometimes savoury!

Lemon and lime are my favourite flavoured sweet, I'll pass on the strawberry though!

Those chicks and rabbits sound truly horrid!
