M&M’s
Description

Sugar Daddy

Sugar Daddy
Description

Sugar Daddies are a good candy in spite of the fact that the name refers to a man who gives gifts to a younger person in exchange for a sexual relationship. Actually, maybe don't give these out this Halloween.

Atomic Fireball
Headline
Atomic Fireball
Description

One of the few candies to be cinnamon flavored, Atomic Fireballs are a bit unwieldy, especially if you get a spicy one. They're hard to eat, and that's half the fun. The other half is red drool.
