Episode 103: Halloween Candy


The things we do to our bodies on this episode should be illegal. Also, our understanding of human biology is primitive. Also, what is nougat? Also, where are we and why are we surrounded by empty candy wrappers? Candies tasted: 3 Musketeers, Necco Wafers, Nerds, Snickers, Milky Way Midnight, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com

    The only reason that NECCO wafers still exist is to shingle gingerbread houses. The company, however, also makes money putting the same candy into heart-shaped molds and putting cutesy phrases on them. Yep, the NECCO wafer is cousin to the conversation heart. (Not that anybody eats those, either.)

    Circus peanuts still exist–unfortunately. My bf just got some for his birthday this week–he likes circus peanuts! I think they taste like stale marshmallows with just a hint of citrus scented Clorox kitchen wipe. :-P

    I love the candies that seem to come out mostly at Halloween- 5th avenue, baby ruth, $100000, etc. least favorite by far: twizzlers; can’t stand the look/smell of them to this day. How could you forget the ultimate Halloween candy, candy corn?! fwiw I love them, but the classic ones, not the little pumpkins…

    I laughed so hard when you two were eating your Nerds! Thanks for another wonderful podcast!

    According to a show I saw on History Channel (home of alien shows galore), Necco wafers were distributed to the Union Army during the Civil War. That explains a lot, doesn’t it?

    And if you like the dark chocolate version of Milky Way, you have to try the ice cream bar version. It’s in another league.
