Halloween candy is fantastic and why exactly are these “fun sized” portions so awesome?

I believe the answer lies somewhere in the combination between quantity and variety, where someone can sample and indulge in all their favorites. 

Maybe because it only happens once a year in late October? 

As a child, Halloween meant trick or treating for hours and loading up a paper grocery sack full of Halloween candy, most of which was eaten before bedtime. 

Some of the candy ended up in the freezer for school lunches and daily snacking until all that would be left were Tootsie Rolls, Almond Joys and Mounds because those three are terrible

 I’m sorry if you like those but I do not! 

If you saw Mississippi State Head Football Coach Mike Leach’s post-game interview last Saturday, he really hates candy corn!  

I agree and think most people also hate candy corn except Adam Diesselhorst, whose birthday just so happens to be on Halloween.
