I will happily eat whoppers until my mouth feels weird

[–] Boozilla 16 points 1 month ago (4 children)

I really like them. My coworkers and family hate them, and mock me for liking them. But I get all of the unwanted Whoppers at Halloween, so it's worth their contempt.

Ever bit into a stale one that's turned chewy? Happened to me once and the thought of eating another Whopper makes me gag

Peanut M&Ms. I cannot be expected eat them responsibly.

[–] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

This is it for me. I don't even like most candy after the first one or two. I'll have something and think 'oh that's good' but then not go back for more, but with peanut m&ms I can and will keep going until they're gone.

The only way to regulate my intake is not to buy them.

Those Fast Break candy bars, idk why. Used to be Reese's Cups but became meh for whatever reason.

[–] themeatbridge 12 points 1 month ago (3 children)

Hershey's chocolates, including Reese's, have gotten noticeably worse over th last 10 years. Peanut butter cups have gotten waxy and less flavorful.

Candy Corn. Some people insist they taste like wax, and I'm like, "What?!" I will chew those things all day long.

Albanese gummy bears. If you bring Haribo to a party I'm going to punch you in the stomach.

"This time I bought sugar free as revenge"

[–] SatansMaggotyCumFart 9 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Getting punched in the stomach after sugar-free Haribo gummy bears is my fetish.

Hmmm maybe Girl Scout Thin Mints

I'm usually more of a savory guy. I'll fucking eat all the sharp cheddar cheese and salty crackers

Red vines, once I open a bag it's game over, it will 100% be gone that day. The size of the bag does not matter. The only ones that last longer are the multi-pound tubs.

Literally anything from Aldi. Every single sweet they sell there is amazing, stupidly cheap, bafflingly well made.

Outside of that, Easter egg reese's pieces eggs. They have a way better ratio of peanut butter to candy shell than the little bits.

Chocolate covered raisins. I will singlehandedly demolish half a pound if I don't watch it

Take 5. It is a gridded pretzel with peanut butter, caramel, whole peanuts, and chocolate. If you love salty sweet and you like texture this candy is everything.

Costco used to (still does?) sell these tubs of chocolate covered caramel macadamia nut clusters. Literally food of the diabetic gods. I had to stop buying them because they were expensive AF and disappeared way too quickly.

Not quite candy but I think it's close enough to count here: Co-op's own brand salt & vinegar kettle crisps. They're so vinegary it hurts. It's wonderful.

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs - specifically the ones for Easter. Those things are insanely easy for me to eat 2000 calories of.

Crispy M&Ms. I was sad when they discontinued them. Now they've rebranded as crunchy cookie or some shit.

[–] hperrin 7 points 1 month ago (2 children)

Nerds. If I ever buy a box of them, I’ve eaten them all by that night. They’re basically just flavored sugar clumps and I love them.

Mango ginger chews, these Polish pineapple ginger candies which are 1.39 a bag despite inflation, and dark chocolate covered dried mango. Absolutely wonderful.

Anything chewy or gummy, like caramels or gummy rings. Whoppers also slap.

Also crack

How does one freeze dry a skittle (or anything tbh..)?

Do you need to do them individually?
