Yes. And I know what it is because my dad has TEN POUNDS of it. I'm just asking if anyone else is familiar with it.

Maybe they could be smoked. The version my dad got was like gum drops.

Horehound kicks ass. They got it at K-Mart in those hokey plastic barrels with old-timey hard candy in white bags that have pictures of barrels on them.

Had to jog my memory on what circus peanuts looked like and this picture summed it up.



With that said, I recently discovered my love for two candies... The first I think I may've gotten in different packaging (Cow Tails related?).  The second a friend of my Dad's would give us a box size of them and I could live off those things forever.

I've made myself sick on Peanut Butter M&M's a number of times. They're delicious.



I got sick off these in consecutive weekends in 2000, after eating a whole bag each time. I've had maybe five since (brownies, not bags). I would rather be hungover than sick from Two-Bite brownies, and it's not even close. Still, motherfuckers are delicious.

I'm glad I've never seen these as I'm sure I would of eaten 2-4 bags during some of my "altered state" of mind.

"Two-bite" is extremely debatable, as I'm sure I had at least half of them in one gulp. Surely, that had no bearing on my being sick.

I have had many chocolate covered gummy bears, as they jive with my love of all things gummy. Though I believe the chocolate used on the ones I had was not that great. I would have rather had a hard exterior with a gummy center than the all over bounciness of what I tried.

I bought a bag of chocolate-covered gummy bears once. They were not good.

I worked at a candy shop like 5 years ago. They had some weird shit. White chocolate covered gummi bears were pretty good though.

I miss the damn candy shop in the mall where you could go in and fill your own bag of stuff and it was sold by weight. Found one randomly in downtown San Antonio last July but was in the midst of hardcore dieting.

I can think of three places off the top of my head that do that within a 30 minute drive of me. None of them are in the mall though.

Two of them are two doors away from each other in Old Orchard Beach (sort of trashy but sort of gentrifying beach resort town 30 minutes outside of Portland) and I think they're both ice cream parlors too. I always buy candy cigarettes even though they aren't good or even that interesting since I can still find them twenty years after people told me "Better buy these before they get banned!" It's like eating a bunch of mini Fun Dip Sticks without the benefit of actually having Fun Dip!

That's the kind of place I worked at. It was like advertised as $4.99/lb. or something and everyone for some weird reason thought that meant you could just fill a bag and it would be $4.99. When they cried about it, we couldn't put the candy (even if it was wrapped) back on the shelf so all of my friends ate so much candy that summer from me taking all the reject candy home. After a week, I was sick of candy so I'd just bring bags of gummy bears and caramels etc whenever I hung out with someone.

There is a candy shop like that in my town.  Huge wooden barrels of candy, and they used to let people sample anything from certain barrels but I think it got abused so much that now it is limited to 2 total samples.  The place has some amazing candy.

I remember as a kid going to one of those "Sweet Factory" joints in the mall, only to realize what a ripoff they are.

Also not sure if I mentioned it already in this thread but when I was a kid and Cookies & Cream Hershey bars first debuted, it was like crack in my neighborhood.

I bought all three because I'm a sap.

Chili: Tastes just like a regular peanut M&M at first but then there's tiny peppery tickle in the back of your throat. 1/10
Honey: Too sweet. Doesn't really even taste like honey. Just... more sugar? 3/10
Coffee: Easily the best of the bunch, but I'm not sure I'd buy them over peanut M&M's and def. not over peanut butter. Maybe better than plain? But then, I just kinda hate plain M&M's. Doesn't really taste like coffee, more like bitter chocolate. 5/10

Every one of them left an aftertaste for exactly one M&M and then after that I couldn't taste the difference between any of them and regular peanut M&Ms. Chili ones were good for a one-off kick (to be fair I never eat anything spicy), but the coffee ones just made me wish I was eating chocolate covered coffee beans instead. Honey ones were OK but tek's right, there's zero honey-related flavor in them.

Bumping this old thread since Reese's Pieces have replaced Peanut M&Ms as my Theater go to for the last year and a half. Pretty sure they've definitely cracked my Top 5 now and are damn near crack for me.
