Stranded - Halloween Edition

I’ve seen this monthly prompt linkup several times before, but this is my first time ever participating.  The theme/prompt this month is:

If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only take three kinds of Halloween candy with me, what would I take?

I personally think this prompt is HILARIOUS because if I were stranded on a deserted island, I feel safe in saying that the last thing I would be concerned about having with me is Halloween candy!  But, this is bloggerland, so anything’s possible!  LOL!  I’m just going to go with it and have some fun.

So, if I were stranded on a deserted island, the three kinds of Halloween candy I would want are:

Caramel Apple Flavored Laffy Taffy

Granted, taffy would probably be more detrimental to me in the long run than beneficial, given its uber stickiness.  If I were ever rescued, I have no doubt that I’d have several lost fillings and have a mouth full of cavities.


What can I say, I like peeps!  And white sugar coated peeps, like the ghosts, are my favorite, for they have little to no aftertaste as opposed to the colored variety.

Caramel Apples

Again, the caramel on the apples would probably reek havoc on my existing dental work and, if my track record is any indicator, the apple peel would inevitably get lodged between my teeth every time I ate one.  I’m sure that I’d lose my ever-loving mind if I were stuck on an island eating caramel apples without some dental floss!

What is your favorite Halloween candy?

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Linking up with:


  1. chocolate! i love all the little mini chocolates because you get to have a taste without feeling too bad/guilty :)

  2. I love peeps!! Usually I only eat them around Easter but now that they're out for all holidays - it's so great!

  3. bags of fun size Snickers
    bags of fun size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
    bags of candy corn

    1. LOL! Fun sized - like me! (Instead of saying that I'm short, I choose instead to say that I'm "fun sized.")

      Do you like the regular candy corn or the special variety that has a chocolatey taste (it may be called Autumn Harvest or something, I'm not sure)?

  4. I like this prompt, I might join in in December.

    Ugh I can't do Peeps. MFD loves them, I always buy them at Easter.

    I love the Reese's PB pumpkins.

    1. I have learned through commenting on other's pages who participated in this prompt, that I am definitely in the minority when it comes to Reese's PB cups/eggs/pumpkins. I like them...occasionally. Maybe once a year or if I am very, very desperate for something chocolate and that's all there is. Peeps are either a love 'em or hate 'em item for sure. Most folks I know absolutely cannot stand them. Again, I'm in the minority! LOL!

  5. Haha, this made me laugh. I always assume that people love the same Halloween candy as I do, but boy did this prove me wrong. I don't think I would take a single thing you listed. ESPECIALLY not Peeps. BLECH.

    I think I would bring Sour Patch Kids, Dots & Take 5 bars. All of which would also wreak havoc on my dental work.

    1. Ooooh... Sour Patch Kids! Makes my mouth twinge and my mouth turn into a frown just thinking about them. ICK! (As you guessed, I'm not a fan of them... LOL!) I liked Dots as a kid, but I now find them rather bland. I guess if I want fruity, I like a more bold, fruity taste like Skittles or something.

      Yes, this prompt has been very eye opening and educational in terms of learning that Halloween candy tastes are as wide and varied as they come. No wonder the Halloween candy takes up an entire aisle at the supermarket - there's so much to choose from!

  6. I love all things caramel apple. There used to be this snowcone place I'd go to in Texas that had a bajillion flavors of snowcones, but I'd order caramel apple every single time.
