Five Fandom Friday – Halloween Candy I Always Wanted When Trick-Or-Treating

It’s Friday. That means another edition of Five Fandom Friday from geeky bloggers all over thanks to the genius of Super Space Chick and The Nerdy Girlie. Today’s topic: Halloween Candy I Always Wanted When Trick-Or-Treating. My choices are below.


How can you not love this candy bar with its deliciously smooth chocolate, crispy delectable cookie, and luscious rich caramel? Twix is from Mars and I’ve loved it well before it made its appearance in Season 9 of Seinfeld.


Baby Ruth

This candy bar has a nutty, chewy taste with the peanuts, caramel, and nougat wrapped in chocolate. Baby Ruth also happens to be infamous for its role in several films: Caddyshack, Hellboy, and of course Goonies.

Milky Way

Milky Ways also happen to be a combination of nougat and caramel covered in chocolate (do you see a theme with my favorite candies?). It’s very similar to a 3 Musketeers, but so much better!

100 Grand

100 Grand is a crunchy (crisped rice), chewy (caramel), and chocolaty. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why this is a lesser known and not as widely disseminated candy bar. So I always got really excited when I received it.

Reese’s Pieces

The ultimate combination of peanut butter and chocolate is what lands Resse’s Pieces in the final spot on my list. I always preferred these over M&Ms and I’m sure my love of Reese’s has absouluitely nothing to do with that cute little extra-terrestrial liking them too.

And that’s my list of Halloween Candy I Always Wanted When Trick-Or-Treating for Fandom Friday. As you can see I’m a big fan of the combining chocolate with caramel or peanut butter or peanuts. Check out more candy cravings from these women:

If reading about my candy cravings hasn’t got you hungry for sugar, you can head over to twitter and search #Fandom5 to salivate over even more candy choices. What kinds of candy did you always hope to get when you went trick-or-treating?



Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
