Express Yourself: Halloween Candy

A big hello to Jackie Felger at Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand at Entertaining Interests.  Met both of them thru my BFF Lilica Blake of Lilicasplace.  All 3 are absolutely fabulous bloggers I’m sure you’d appreciate.

Jackie and Dani started an Express Yourself Meme. It’s where you do just that; express yourself about a new topic each week.  This week’s topic is a fun one:  Which Halloween candy were you most excited to see in your Trick-or-Treat bags or in your children’s bags?


Well, it’s as if that question was written just for me.  I LOVE CANDY. I’m especially enamored of chocolate in any way, shape, or form.

As a child, my three favorites (in no particular order, as I use to stuff as many different pieces as possible into my mouth at one time) were;  

MilkyWayCandy                     Crunch Candy                    Candy Twix

Remember these?  Well at one time I was the MilkyWay Queen.  I was never without one in hand or mouth.

Of course, now that I’ve developed adult taste in chocolate, my absolute, all-time best indulgence is (drumroll, please)

Pierre Marcolini Paris

If you’ve never met Pierre Marcolini chocolate, you have no idea what you’re missing.  Pure heaven on earth. I think Jacques Torres is (maybe) a close second, but Pierre Marcolini chocolate is just as exquisite tasting as it is exquisite looking.  

Took this photo at his shop in Paris across from the InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel. I stay at this hotel precisely because it’s across the street from the Pierre Marcolini shop.  I  know, that’s sad.  I’m simply addicted.

Indulge your inner child this Halloween.  Have some of your favorite candy treats from the past.
