Several months years ago when I was a freshman in college, I had a roommate who loved to eat stale yellow Peeps (only yellow and stale to the point of crumbly).

A few weeks ago, I found out that a family friend likes M&M’s after they’ve been microwaved for 30 seconds. My husband, on the other hand, freezes Snickers for super crunchy cold snacking.

Last night, my neighbor confessed that she adores Starburst fruit chews, but has an aversion to the red ones, which are my all-time favorite.

That said, I have a theory that most every candy lover has a “candy quirk” (i.e., you only like the edges of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup; you eat the sides of a Milky Way bar first; you only eat the blue M&M’s in the candy dish, etc.).

Prove my theory true by sharing your peculiar candy consumption habit (keep it G-rated or it will be tossed).

Everyone who leaves a comment after this post will be entered to win a $25 shopping spree at Candy.com.

See, it finally pays to love candy and have a quirk (or two).

Since it’s fall and freaky Friday, it’s the perfect day to ask:

What’s your LEAST favorite Halloween candy?

You know, the one candy you traded out as a kid (or will trade with the neighbors this year).

When I was a small fry, my brother and I would come home Halloween night and go through our stash, trading candy piece by piece. I dumped 3 Musketeers on him and he handed over all of his Almond Joys. It was a clean and fair transaction.

To entice you to share your LEAST favorite Halloween candy (just one!), you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Candy.com Gift Card. The winner can buy his/her FAVORITE Halloween candy. Watcha waiting for?  Spill it.

Based on the feedback, I’ll post a Top Ten list early next week and announce the $25 gift-card winner. TGIF!

At the National Confectioners Association’s Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago this past May, I stumbled on a confection that seriously did stop me in my tracks. It’s the Melville Candy Company’s lollipops with sour strips.

These rectangular beauties look like stained glass windows and they’re made from scratch in Massachusetts. (I’m not sure which is more earth-shattering: that something is made in the USA or that these lollipops look like chards of stained glass.)

I ended up eating a small stained glass window every night on my train ride home from the convention. I can attest that these lollipops not only look good, but taste good, too. The cherry flavor is my favorite.

I’m an adult, though, and not the best judge, so I corralled my kids and some of their friends who happened to be in our driveway for a taste test. All but one little redhead gave these pops a thumbs up. (Little red wasn’t thrilled about the fact that the green lollipop was lime flavored. She was hoping for apple. Happens.)

The kids agreed that one of the coolest things about these pops is the texture. The sandpapery sour strip encased in a smooth lollipop lends itself to an interesting mouth feel. Bottom line, they’re just fun to eat.

Melville's orange Sour Strip Lollipop could easily double as a Halloween party favor by dressing it up with a simple witch’s hat made out of black construction paper. Or poke several dressed-up pops into a domed-shape piece of Styrofoam, place Styrofoam in a bowl, cover with Oreo cookie crumbs, and say hello to a sweet graveyard centerpiece.

The other cool thing about these lollipops is the stick. Each one includes the product’s ingredients, allergen information, and Melville’s phone number. In fact, all Melville Candy Company lollipop sticks include this information. It’s a great safety feature before and after a lollipop is gobbled.

Melville’s Sour Strip Lollipops come in a variety pack with seven flavors: orange, lemon, lime, cherry, raspberry, grape, and watermelon.
