Welcome Wednesday: What is/was your favorite candy?

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Oct 13, 2021

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I'm in the middle of Hackathon week at work.  My awesome company sent out a care package that included: a container of gummies, a chocolate bar and some pepperoni sticks (as well as an awesome t-shirt)!

This got me thinking about some of my favorite candies when I was younger (i don't eat them much now).

One of my absolute favorites was Cherry Blasters:

Were you a candy, chocolate or chips person when you were younger?  I'd love for you to tell me in the comments.

Have a great rest of the week everyone!

I'm not familiar with the Utz brand but they do look very similar to Lay's.  Likely same thing different country :D

Hi @Jimmy Seddon

I was a chocolate person. And my favorite was LANCY with cocoa and hazelnut. I don't know how many times I ate this one! But, a lot of times, for sure.

And the fun is that nowadays I usually eat a bar of chocolate with 90g in 1 month or more.

Excellent topic; thanks for the interaction today!

Cheers! 😃🤩👏🍫

Ok I have never had one of those, but it sounds delicious!  I'm going to have to see if I can find it (or an equivalent)!

Hi @Jimmy Seddon

I highly recommend this experience to you!

See here where you can find Lancy on Amazon

Let me know when you prove this one!

Cheers, 😃👏🙏🍫💪

Chips all the way! I think I'm always craving salt.

When I didn't have anything after school, I would grab a bag of Fritos and watch the VH1 video countdown and text my friends on my super-cool full-keyboard LG rumor.

I was always a fan of Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion, but it had to be Ruffles.  I didn't watch VH1... but I had friends that did.

Never met a potato I didnt like. Smiths chicken for me!

I used to love Lion Bar but it doesn't taste the same any more :(

A similar thing I still love is Tunnock's Caramel Wafer.

Otherwise I mostly just eat dark chocolate (preferably not under 70%).

Gummies are awesome. Dots have always been a fave.

Chocolate? Goldberg Peanut Chews. Love places that sell old-timely candy like oldtimecandy.com

I did not know there was an entire site devoted to this (though I should have).

Gratefully, some Old Timey Candy Never Dies.

I have a few favorites that change out depending on my mood that week. But a mainstay is Tootsie Rolls!

Those are all yours @John M Funk! I was never much of a fan of them.

John Funk Community Leader Oct 13, 2021

Those would make some good Atlassian swag   :-)

I see what you did there. Great idea! It would be so nice if Atlassian sent Wondrium a Costco-sized shipment of Tootsies. But ALL colors too.

Hey wait. Wasn't the question about candy? How did potato chips get in here? :)

Probably because if you eat anything but plain salt ones, they are full of sugar! 🤣

As I child we had visitors from Germany who brought us the chocolate which I liked the most: Kinderschokolade.
This was not available in the shops of Austria. 




And I also liked the Stollwerck candies which had a very good taste.

Cant go past pop rocks!

FAN. Its never boring with Pop Rocks in your jaw. Wash it down with a Coke!

We had this coloured "licorice" when I was in primary school. The school shop went through who knows how many hundreds of boxes a week, because just about everyone had some most days. It was a gelatine / gummy type thing, sticks about 10cm long, that had strips you could pull off. The most popular was the red one - a sort of pretend raspberry flavour - but they had green, yellow and blue as well... maybe orange?

Cant have been very good for us, but we could not get enough. Sadly I haven't seen it since I left primary school. Cant even find pictures of it.

I appreciate that you said "liquorice". As a lover of liquorice proper (the awful black stuff :þ) people calling this kind of gummy liquorice gets on my nerves :þ 

Originally red or black rods, but later with the peel off strips you mentioned in various flavors. Hope this helps.

Sort of, but not the same thing. They only had 3 tubes that you could peel off, the strips were quite distinct. And I think twizzlers are harder than ours were, and they weren't twisted either. The closest thing you can get now is from Darrell Lea - an Australian lolly shop.

@Thorhalla Gudmundsdottir Beck  I agree about licorice. I love the real thing.

Here's How To Make The Squid Game Cookie So You Can Try The Game Out For  Yourself W/O Dying

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Oct 14, 2021

@Bihan Hu I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at?  Can you elaborate please?

IS that a CRACKER? Are we going from candy to chips to CRACKERS? Crackers aren't candy. Guess we should have defined that up front with chips too.

Hiiii @Jimmy Seddon 

It's a candy (called Dalgona) game from Squid game ( on Netflix series), the rule of this game is everyone will randomly get one candy box but they have different shape on it, and you have to use a niddle to pull them out, if you failed, the watcher will kill you. people have been crazy about watching and playing this game. I also organising this game as our next team event too!

Hey @Jose Osorio  or @Jose Osorio

 

IT IS definitely a candy called Dalgona from my childhood and the one in the picture is a candy game from a quite popular Netflix series - Squid game recently. I got same question like you (what is that?) when I first saw it but then I got obsessed with the CANDY and the game now!!
