“My absolute favorite Halloween candy was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I wouldn’t even wait to get home and empty my bucket of treats before I would devour those little cups of yumminess. When I eat my peanut butter cups, I eat the chocolate around the edges first, then I pop the whole center into my mouth and savor it. This was and still is my favorite candy of all time. The only difference is that now I put them in the freezer and buy as many as I want!
