I nearly squealed when I saw that Junior Mints was celebrating Halloween with black and orange centers. This may be old news. Maybe the Tootsie Roll Co. has been making these for the last 16 years, but I don’t remember seeing them until recently.
Sadly, these Halloween Junior Mints don’t have any special flavors. I feel like orange mint is a missed opportunity (I love orange mint), but points to Junior Mints to giving us bright orange and deep black gooey peppermint centers.
I’ve discussed what candy I didn’t like while trick or treating, now let’s talk about what I did like. This list could go on forever, so instead of listing all the great candy that’s available all year ’round (bite size Snickers, Mounds, Twix, etc) I’m trying to limit this list to what felt extra special to me around Halloween.
Dubble Bubble – Never once as a child did I ever ask my parents to buy me some Dubble Bubble, but it was always a standard around Halloween and in the spirit of the season, I enjoyed it (it’s just too bad the flavor didn’t last long). Huge bags of those stuff were, and are still, produced. This guaranteed you could always get a handful of this stuff and throw it into your bag.
Mary Janes – Mary Janes took me a while to get used to, but once I did… MMM!
