As I’ve had plenty of time to go through my kids’ Halloween candy stash, I’ve been really into ranking candies.

While Reese’s and most things chocolate will always be at the top of my list, I feel that Laffy Taffy is under appreciated. I don’t recall seeing it on lists of top candy, but that stuff is good, obviously not the banana ones though.

Do they still make the large strips of Laffy Taffy with sparkles on them? That was my favorite thing to get at concession stands when I was in elementary school.

Anyway, on to the flakes.
