Sweetest Day

Peanuts are not candy unless they're in butter form and inside a chocolate cup.

We're about halfway to Halloween, and Columbus Day and Boss's Day are over, it must be Sweetest Day. Thanks to my calendar that is hanging on my cubicle wall i have discovered all sorts of made up holidays and if there's one thing I love it's holidays. Technically, there's a crazy made up holiday for every day of the year, but if it makes it onto a calendar that has to count for something.

My wife and I decided to celebrate Sweetest Day with a trip to The Sweet Tooth Fairy. You may recognize them from Cupcake Wars. (Maybe you don't watch baking reality shows, but if you're a candy freak like myself you probably watch Cake Boss too) Their cupcakes are AMAZING! We especially liked the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cupcakes. Sadly they were out of the Twix cupcakes, so I got a Salted Carmel Witch's Hat. It was a good date night.

Speaking of sweets, I wanted to discuss a classic Countdown to Halloween topic, Trick or Treat candy; the good, the bad, and the inedible. For me, Reese's Peanutbutter Cups are number one, hands down. The worst has to be Circus Peanuts and the more recent Candy Corn Circus Peanuts, an unholy combination of my two least favorite Halloween confections.

What do you think? What's the worst candy or other items have you received? What's your favorite Halloween treat? Tell me in the comments below!


  1. Those cup cakes look too tasty!

    1. They were so good! I hope we can try the Twix cupcaks before they pull them again until next year.
