i love those liqueish and sherburt pods simply because when i was little i used to down all the sherburt and then blow it back out at people and clame to be a dragon… my friends faces went as white as sheets; you know they were terrified!

don’t now, i’m kinda not into candy with a face and stuff…

Posted by vedran  on  03/31  at  11:53 PM

FAD MUSK STICKS- Because I can feel chic and debonair without blackening my lungs and being set upon by my athsma.

SOUR PITBULL- because they are the only lolly i rememeber being dissolvable and then drinkable..i think

DOUBLE PLUS ULTRA CHEAP LOLIPOPS (the thin ones in basic colours)
- because they are cheap and they are always nicer than the bigger, fancier ones, and cheap too.

SOUR PEACH HEARTS- because sour+love=the glamour of self destruction, GUM BALLS- also do this for me because you swallow them purposely knowing they will build up in your stomach and grow appendiges etc.

HOT WARHEADS- because you can’t get them in Australia anymore, well at least not in my parts, and they are sorely missed by me.

I like any kind of sour sweets…those wide, flat, red sour shoe lace sorta ones are the best! If you eat loads they make your eye balls sweat! Mmmm

sweets are perhaps the best thing on this earth.  a sugar rush gets me hyped up to clean my flat from head to toe and arrange all my cds in alphabetical order.

when i run out of sweets (Any sweets, although i do enjoy a toffee crisp, after eights, cola bottles, aeros…) i have to try and make a chocolatey concoction.

last time it was whipped cream and nesquik chocolate powder.

in my student days it was a blob of water and hot chocolate powder to try and make some chocolaty goodness.

it really didnt taste as good.

now i need a job to afford sweets daily. but in the meantime, i’d love a poster to remind me of sweets all day. smile

candies..mmmmm! in my own semi-polish language they’re called cuxy and mean all the links i get and send with delicious sites just like this one! these candies are best and always make me salivate ;P

yeah, and there are all the mexican sweets i’ve tried (not that much though) with chili which u lick and suck.

a candy must be exciting!

Posted by sikova  on  04/02  at  08:33 AM

Sweets, Yes…My favourite sweet has to be sugar. It’s a sweet contained in every sweet on the planet (I think) also my choice because it was invented by me upon a small plantation in new Zealand 34 years ago, until then sweets were made ‘SWEET!’ BY SUBSTITUTING THE NON EXISTANT ‘SUGAR’ FOR LEAD SHAVINGS! something which until now had not been revealed, except possibly by magazines no-one reads, such as Time-out and Hello. The granulated crystals were a stroke of genius on my part, I’m sure you agree, tehre is no sweet substitute for sugar. Every kind of sweet on the planet rolled into one.AND IT’S ALL MINE!

Posted by blaupraust  on  04/02  at  06:06 PM

oh Jon, puuurrrlease pick me as the winner!!! i was at your Candy talk in the Sugar Club in Dublin but I didnt get one of your posters coz my mean friends pushed me out of the way and took ‘em all!!!! (im only 5ft and they’re all mean boys) Whats worse is that i was the one that made them all come along to see you coz your so damn cool. Wanted you to autograph one for me and they all laughed at me and called me sad. Please prove them wrong!!!!

Did by a zeeb zeeb to console myself though… its now the only friend i have left, sniff.

Oh, and my favourite sweets are cola bottles wink

Come on Jon, make my day?

anyhoo..most favourite sweets have got to be those flying saucers with sherbert inside! ..are they actually called flying saucers? ..those erm..discy things..you must know what i mean..

mmmm sherbert..

Posted by some random dustbunny  on  04/03  at  04:30 PM

I like all sweets, all sweets are just like any other sweets but haribo is better than all sweets. because sweets are sweet but haribos are nice, if you had given me a choice of haribo or some type of sweet (which is sweet) i would choose haribo. its like orange is orange, which is why its called orange. so thats why i like haribo because they’re not just sweets, they’re haribo sweeties, but sweeties and sweets are not the same thing, because sweet is a taste and sweeties are blocks of sweet made from stuff. so i love haribo!

Posted by Hamypig  on  04/03  at  04:40 PM

Like like jelly tots but i don’t,it’s because i like the suger but i suck it so much that i suck all the suger off so the jelly tots are sour i don’t like that kind of sour but i like sour.so i like jelly tots because they are sweet but not sour! wink

Posted by Black_Ox  on  04/03  at  04:47 PM

I like sweets, Any kind will do
Mojo’s, Space Dust and bottles are only just a few.
But if pushed to really answer, i’ve just got to stop and think….
Yes, it would have to be sherbet UFO’s.
Cause they made my poo bright PINK.

mmmmmmm sweets my fave would have to be jelly babies cos when i see real babies being chauffered (yes i had to look up how to spell that!) around in there prams with there rainproof covers whilst im fighting against the cold with my holey gloves and brocken umbrella it gives me a satisfying feeling of justice when i bite the heads off the jelly babies! ......im a nice person honest! smile

Posted by natz  on  04/05  at  11:29 AM

So many sweetie loves over the years it’s difficult to choose!  I used to go mental for Garbage Pail Kids, freaky stickers & chewy gum, what more could a little kid ask for in a choking hazard?
Does candy-floss count? I like that.  And sherbet fountains, flying saucers, double dips and sherbet lemons.  So sherbet really i suppose.  It taste’s nice, and it’s a really nice word.  Sheeer-bet…mmmmm.

my favourite candy is _____________ (put whatever candy you can think of cos i like them all).

Posted by backdrifter  on  04/05  at  07:29 PM

Back when I was growing up, it was ok for men to dress up in costume and intice children across the land to lick their parts, of varying flavours I might add. However the innocence has been lost, but the sweets survive.

There can be only one winner of this competition, and that my friends is The King of Kandy himself. All rise please for (Squint your eyes now) Mr Bertie Bassett.

my favourite sweet is the Lik-em-Aid sticks that come in the fun dip packages.

i never was to keen with using the sticks, so i always ate the powder straight, colouring my teeth funny colours. so then i would always save the yummy coconut-ish flavoured stick for last.

when i grew older , i began to buy fun dip soley for the sticks. i cant get enough of them!

My favorite sweets are M&M’s, because I can eat the colors I like less firts, and pretend they are things I just really hate. And I always leave the best to the end: green. Silly…

Posted by Inayaili de León  on  04/07  at  11:37 PM

original flavour drumstick lollies are surely the be all and end all of of sucrose based snack foodage.  so. i had my fingers replaced with drumsticks… now just bare paper sticks.  woe betide the man who eats his own finger garnish.  xx

Posted by the kid nutkin  on  04/08  at  12:14 AM

I once lay on my back and poured a packet of nerds into my mouth. Then I poured a load of coke into my mouth whilst the sweets were still there. My mouth basically exploded and the, still fizzing, nerds were spattered all over my room. Once i recovered I found it hilarious, but my mummy was very, very angry and she banned nerds from the house. It was ok though because I used to go to the Jet petrol station and eat them with my firneds instead.

Bye

Posted by timmy wimmy  on  04/08  at  11:25 AM

Teeth and lips. they are the most wonderful sweets, because whenever you offer someone either a lip or some teeth they put them over their mouth and act crazy. i love it.

Posted by Aaron Miller  on  04/10  at  09:17 AM

I love apple whips! when i was a kid if i had a loose tooth me and my mates would climb this tree in a field down the road, wrap the apple whip around the tooth and pull it out! i dont really know why we needed the tree…. seemed like the perfect location at the time!

Posted by Denise Ryan  on  04/10  at  10:31 AM

my favorite sweet ok this is a hard one i like most sweets how can you discriminate, they all rock except them haribo foamy things i dont like them as much as the rest but if i was only allowed one for the rest of my life i think i would choose the classic apple (sour or normal) bootlace from woolworths. My reason ..................... i can eat a whole bag i one (thats impressive if you come from norfolk - its how we mate) i will show you if you wish but hey ladys sorry im taken smile

Posted by simon  on  04/11  at  12:59 PM

what a great competition. my favorite sweets have to be jolly ranchers, you can get sweet and sour all in one. they make your face gurn like a prize winning pill head, your eyes water and you get ulcers:snake:  gulp  . Nothing beats a nice sweet sweet, your salivery glans pump water into your mouth and then you dribble and stuff grrr zoiks. yeh i rock.

Posted by simon-says  on  04/11  at  02:03 PM

the sweets i like bestest are fizzy cola laces (38p) but you gotta eat a whole packet so that your mouth goes all tingly and hurty but in a good way. you also gotta drink tesco value cola (18p) or roller cola as we grown up skaty kids call it.  always after a day out in york or wherever whenme n my homies return to our home town and good ole tescos we put together our coppers to buy laces and roller cola so we can fill our mouthies with the sugary,tingly, but nice goodness :p

Posted by becqui  on  04/11  at  10:09 PM

I know this is going to sound cursy, but my favorite sweet has allways been the chocolate. I love other candys as well but i have a particular thing for chocolate. Sometimes when I’m eating it, the scene of “Omero Simpson in the candy world…. when he bytes the chocolate dog” crosses my mind and sudenley in my head the barr of chocolate that i’m holding starts taking all kinds of different shapes…......animals, carrs, flovers. Probably we all used our imagination to create our own candy world…........those are the sweetest thouts!

My mother sends me an Easter basket every year, even though I no longer live with her, and this year was the best one I’ve ever gotten, hands down. It included:
2 bags of Candy Corn (my favorite candy, I don’t know why!)
A box of Cadbury Cream Eggs (not the gross caramel ones, the ones with the ooey gooey sugar blob in the middle)
A bottle of Ranch Dressing…?
A bag of Starburst Jelly Beans
A box of Claratin D (how thoughtful)
and
A giant bag of Garlic Croutons… (presumably to go with the Ranch?)

I love my crazy mother.

Posted by Beth  on  04/18  at  03:36 PM

Cherry Lips - So versatile. They are great when left in the sweetie bag in a cold place and go rock hard. But equally they are great when having been in a warm pocket and are lusciously soft (if you can avoid the pocket fluff).

Candy shrimps - The milky gritty taste of the sea. A sea where salt is replaced by sugar,obviously.

Refreshers - Not the bar but the rock hard block that then yields once you’ve had the courage to risk yer teeth.

So if you could please draw a giant shrimp (is that an oxymoron?) with sexy candy lips in the colour of a refresher bar please Jon.

My favourate sweets are Nerds, becuase you can only find them in the most backward places on earth. Places where the seventies never happened, where cash registers are mechanical and the shops smell of dust and suspision instead of turps and profit margins. They transport me back to a more innocent time. And they’ve got a hardcore sour taste.

Posted by richard  on  04/20  at  02:08 PM

Ho Ho, my favourite wee sweties are anacide balls. Not only do they skin your mouth alive, their smell attracts dogs! A sweet that attracts dogs for godsake!

And they have a funny rouge complexion about them. Mmmmmm.

I thank you.

“borrachitos”
in my country we make all kind of candies, when i was a kid i dont know why my grandma used to like all this candies, guayaba ones (guayabate) Cajeta, Cocada (coconout) pepitorias


candys are little day time dreams
the better ones are borrachitos

Borrachitos make my day happy,
Borrachitos its just a candy its a life style
borrachitos, just like the real ones, go with the flow
borrachitos covered with sugar

how sweet life can be if you are a borrachito ? i dont know, Saluuud (cheers)

Posted by okcarlos  on  04/20  at  04:36 PM

I have two favourite candies. The first story goes way back to the time when I was just a little girl having my “candy day” on saturdays. I always ate candies called “kiss-kiss”, named after the way people call cats here in Finland. There is a picture of two little kitties in the wrapping and the candy itself is the size of little finger and light pink in colour. http://www.jadecon.fi/fazer/kuvat/kiskis.gif . At the time my little sister was three years old and when she saw me eating “kiss-kiss” one saturday, she ran to our mom and said “Mom, Elisa is eating cat weenies, do something!” Ever since she has used that name for “kiss-kiss” and it’s still one of my favourite candy.

There is a story too behind the other candy I like. I was nineteen years old and working in a candy store. There was this new candy at the store -licourice dynamite. It was extra hot tasting “salmiakki” (finnish black candy) and super good. But little I knew about it until I saw the original packing where it was delivered to the store. It was a cardboard box with dope illustrations and texts (written this way) “Doctor Fäkface!”, “Kaboom!” and “It’s fäcking good, isnd’t it?”. It looked so rebel between the “old lady” chocolate boxes that I had to like it even more!

Posted by Elisa  on  04/20  at  04:37 PM

In the philippines candies are just as sweet as in any other country.But when cultures take a twist candy coudnt be more sweeter.  Chocnut or pinoy chocolate is a damn sweet peanut powder bar that are to die for! wrapped in simple matchbox foil, originaly sold in Sari-sari stores(grocery) , it is now a quintessential part of our POP culture. 
Crumbles with that peanuty texture and the lovely chocolate taste!

That sweet third world!

I love chomping Parma Violets to bits like I’m the guy in the movies who stole a truck and drove it through a level crossing, or the titanium-tipped Eurotunnel digging machine set to maximum speed, or a badger stuck inside a cage made of chompable material, or a specially designed robot dedicated to the task of chomping - consisting only of a large jaw-like mechanical chomping system, two small legs with chunky wheels, cast iron teeth, a cool battery pack with LED lights on, a rocket pack, lasers set to chompify AND FINALLY cool little red glowing eyes indicating he is obviously a friend of yours.

Posted by Ben Brignell  on  04/20  at  10:42 PM

I just luv those little chewy white milk teeth. I think it’s mainly cos i’m jelous that i lost mine and i’m harking back to another era. I mean, I miss that lovely tooth fairy. Mine looked like Kylie’s Absinth fairy in Moulin Rouge. Could you think of a better reason?

Posted by rausheck  on  04/21  at  07:42 AM

I would have to go with Necco Wafers made by the Necco corp.  Really, the whole package is designed to foster feelings of nostalgia for the penny candy era.  The package is old school wax wrapping and the candy’s are plastic like bits of clay, I think.  The colors are muted already in a variety of pastels.  The already drab colored candy is coated in what can only be described as a loose white powder.  This further mutes the color of the candy AND makes it feel really weird.  The taste is only so so, but you can play CATHOLIC CHURCH with them!  “Body of Christ,” you say to your little playmates as you give them the licorice ones.  Because you hate the licorice ones.  You do.  Not me, I love ‘em.  All of them.  We still play Catholic Church with them now.  But first me and my mom drop a few hits of liquid LSD on them.  My mom loves getting on a nostalgia trip.  Whose doesn’t?

My name is Tara, and I am candy-holic. 
Despite being an admitted candy-holic, I’d like to point out that there is a fine line between being a candy junkie, and a candy aficionado.  Ah hell, who am I kidding – there’s no distinction.  I’ll eat it all!  Jujubes, Popeye Cigarettes, Sour Patch Kids, Gummie Worms, Runts, Nerds, Licorice sticks, Shoelace Gum, Hershey’s Kisses, Sponge Toffee, Mr. Freezies – my kingdom for some Sweet Tarts!  Oooh, I’m salivating like Pavlov’s dog just thinking about it all!
For a quick fix, I’ll scarf down a giant heap of penny candy; but when I’m feeling extra naughty, I’ll linger over a few of the most outrageously expensive, delectably sinful hand-made chocolate truffles. Either way, the euphoric wave that washes over me as the insulin rushes through my veins bringing me to the very edge of pure ecstasy, is the same blissful feeling of exhilaration that can’t be obtained by any other means than the simple, sweet, sugary delight of candy.
But I digress.  The question was, what is my favorite?  I guess I’d have to say that out of all the candy in candyland, Blue Whales are my favorite.  Why?  Cause they’re the gift that keeps on giving: if you eat enough of them - oh, how can I put this delicately? - your stool turns an alarmingly electric shade of BLUE!  Now that’s some candy!
Enjoy!

Hmm, pocky.

It’s a stick. It’s got chocolate on it. It’s tasty.

That makes it the swiss army knife of confectionary. LOL.

Millions are my favourite sweets although i havent had them in years. They taste oohh so good and last for ages. The strawberry ones were always the best.

Either them or lemon sherberts.. those were amazing too .. i like my sweets real chewy so they take ages to guzzle.. mmhmmm

Sherbet Lemons! A fine specimen of a sweet, perhaps the finest! They are not a namby-pamby cola bottle with instant sweet/sour gratification, oh no!... They make you work for your reward. You have to suck the sh*t out of them before the sherbert orgasms into your mouth and tastbuds. hmmmmm….. (druelling about them already).

Eat sweets, lose teeth, live fast, die young
i’m a dental rejection, i’m an oral bum
but i won’t retreat until i eat the last of the Chomps
if it spells the end of all the friends i’ve got in my gums

Watercress wrote those excellent sweet-related lyrics. My favourite sweets? Revels are pretty good, if only because you don’t know what you’re going to eat when you pick one out. And because cheap comedians can make jokes about people with nut allergies playing russian roulette with a packet of revels.

PS: I really like the candy picture! You should make your own candy paper and put doodles on it. Or maybe just get some rice-paper and make a pen out of licorice or something. thanks. bye.

I once had a girlfriend called Candy but she didn’t turn out to be that sweet!

Best sweets ever are either drum sticks lollies or refresher bars…...FACT, Dave wins.

Posted by Davy m  on  04/24  at  01:07 PM

tooty fruity’s - for the strong flavour and hard shell.
pineapple cubes - for the ‘how many can you fit into your mouth in one go’ competition…. (25)
refreshers - for the fizzzzzzzzz
rhubarb and custard, because they last forever
eclairs, for the gooey bit in the centre

all the above are pre diabetes memories… now i enjoy the descriptions of how new sweets taste from tolerant friends. Loving all your sweet-toothed descriptions - thanks!

I really like this danish candy called “Lakrisal” which is small pieces of licorice lozenge. Me and my best friend always eat them -and now and then we eat untill we get sick. Lakrisal have a very cool and original design in black, white and red. It is so cool that we collect the candypaper so I can use them as wallpaper in my room. I have over 500 little pieces of candypaper now, so I will soon put them up on my wall!
I just LOVE Lakrisal!

My favourite sweet has to be SHERBERT FOUNTAINS!! I made my brother snort the sherbert once, and his nostrils bubbled like a foamy volcano.

My favourite sweets are those creepy looking lil pink prawns you can get in pick & mix! They are inkeeping with my obsession of all things sea creature-y. They are great to eat in the bath… but dissintergrate into pink prawn carnage if you try make them swim. Trust me, I know!

MY FAVOURITE SWEETS ARE SKITTLES. YEAH! THEY ARE SWEET AND I CAN REALLY TASTE THE RAINBOW! IT GIVES ME WINGS!!!

My favorite sweets are/were iron bru bars…
This is why….. Every day when I walked to school I used to stop off at the local newsagents to pick up my healthy daily breakfast which consisted of 1p sweets.
So it was a normal school day and I needed some sugar, so in I go to pick up my penny sweets.  Upon seeing the all new stock of bars I decided to opt for the bright orange and quite tempting packet, known as the iron bru bar.  I bought the sweets and was on my way, on opening the packet I thought ‘wow, this is sticky’ I bet I can roll it into a ball…..so that’s exactly what I did, and chucked the whole lot into my mouth.  (BIG MISTAKE) upon my first bite I successfully imbedded most of my teeth into its no-need-for-nails formula; next thing I know out comes my tooth.  So ironically my mouth did taste of iron, which was nice.  So, I screamed a bit and surprisingly ate my bar.
That night I took my tooth that had come out and placed it under the pillow as I’d been told that a fairy replaces it with money.  Next day I wake to find a whole pound, ok, I’m ecstatic. I was so excited from my new found richness; I counted all my teeth to see how much my mouth was worth.  Turns out quite a lot, I never had the courage to pull one out, although I did tie a friends tooth to a door and shut it really hard.  But he didn’t get any money because he got grounded instead.  Sweets are the best!

my worst sweet is cough candy…its vile and tastes like sambuka the morning after the night before…and my obsession with being different may have cost me a limited edition poster…booooo but i quite like rhubarb and custards

Mr Cadbury met Ms Rowntree in a room on Quality Street. It was After Eight, he turned out the light for a bit of Black Magic! he slipped his hands in her Snickers & showed her his CurlyWurly.  Not keen to have any Jelly Babies she let him take a trip up Bourneville boulevard.  She screamed with Turkis Delight as he took out his Fun Sized Mars Bar it felt a bit Crunchie & she wanted some Time Out but he did a Twirl & had a Picnic in her Pink Waffers! My favourite sweets are dirty ones!

Pick a favourite candy?  Isn’t that kind of akin to picking a favourite child?  (Even though we all know it’s always the most successful kid of the litter.)  Since I can’t think of the most successful candy, I’m gonna go with Starburst.  I used to share those with my sister, and she would spit them out like gum for years until I finally caught her.  I don’t think I’ve bought Starburst for a long time, now that I think about it, but it’s probably the most amusing candy story I have.

Oh, and caramel apples are probably the best thing ever.

Personnely, i think that Jelly belly are dellicious:
-you can it them, very good
-you can make mosaique, so many colour!
-you can play, make a mini house, and imagine they’re alive
-You can do so many with Jelly Belli, i can’t give you the all posibility, juste a last sentence:
—>Just try, jelly belly can make you crasy

Posted by Boris  on  05/05  at  03:07 PM

My favourite were simply Parma Violets , that purple pastel colour, that sickly saccharine ‘perfume-y’ taste, and, they smelt like your grandmother.

But now its Werther’s originals!! smile
