Tonight is the Ultimate Candy Haul Night. Do you Have a Favorite?

This may be a silly question, but what is your favorite Halloween candy? My answer just may be everything, but seriously, almost anything chocolate is my favorite.

Yes, Halloween is a spooky holiday and it's really fun to get all dressed up in a fancy costume, but the whole point of that is to get free candy from the neighbors. It's all about the candy loot.

Each year, millions of kids dress up and go around begging for candy, and they do not want crappy stuff, either, so forget trying to hand out raisins or packs of pencils or some such. Your yard will be TP'ed, fast.
