What Your Favorite Halloween Candy Says About You

What Your Favorite Halloween Candy Says About You

You can tell who a person is just by the candy that they eat.

The best thing about Halloween besides dressing up is getting candy! I am a little old to be trick-or-treating but I am not too old to be going to Target on November 1st to shop for all the candy on sale! But the candy you buy says a lot about you. Are you curious to see what your favorite candy says about you?

1. Kit Kats

Just like those chocolate wafers, it takes a lot to get to know the real you. You are the master of poker faces. You know exactly what you want in life when you see and you will do whatever you can to get it.

2. Snickers

You get along with everyone. They could be super grumpy that day or super stubborn in a situation, it doesn't matter. You will make the best out of any situation by just showing up with a smile on your face.

3. Twix

You are a complicated individual. But that doesn't make you any less amazing. You keep life interesting. You are the life of the party and always keep everyone on their toes.

4. Twizzlers

You are the wacky friend of the group who isn't afraid to let down your hair and do something crazy. You are the risk taker that is always ready to something that most people would think twice about.

5. 3 Musketeers

You are a social butterfly. You are constantly out and about getting lunch with a friend or catching up over coffee. When you are out getting groceries, you most likely run into someone and talk to them for awhile. You always have someone there to talk to or out with. Who needs a Friday night in when you can go out with your best girlfriends?

6. Swedish Fish

You have a bright, colorful personality. You are always laughing about something making you extremely easy to talk to. You are a trendsetter who isn't afraid to step over the line once in awhile to see if things work out. No one out on the dance floor? You'll be the one to get the party started.

7. Starbursts

You are fun and flirty. Your smile is contagious and no one can stop looking at you when you are. You radiate confidence like the sun radiates heat. Some may think you come across as intimidating because of it. But once you show them that smile, they'll know you just want to have fun.

8. M&M's

You are a flexible person that can handle anything. You can be thrown into any situation and you'll be great at it. You know a little bit about everything and anything. You are super creative and can come up with any sort of fun idea with the snap of a finger. Last minute costume change? Give yourself a couple hours and you can get it done. If not, there is always Amazon Prime.

9. Hershey's Kisses

You are the person with a heart of gold. You are a selfless individual who would do anything for anyone you truly care about. You also aren't afraid to treat yourself in what you truly want. You deserve it.

10. Tootsie Rolls

You are a tough cookie with a bit of a sensitive side. You come across as tough and that you can take on the world. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. You will not admit it but you will cry at the occasional heartfelt message on a card or the cute puppy commercial on TV. Either way, you are softie (whether you are showing it or not).

11. Sweet Tarts

Just like the name, you are extremely sweet and cute. You may even come across as innocent to some people. However, no one dares to cross you because you may not be so sweet them anymore. You could fool anyone with your Devil's costume except to those who are on your bad side.

12. Candy Corn

You are #Basic when it comes to Halloween season. You take this time to purchase candy corn in bulk to last you through the whole year! You are also unique in your own way. You have layers to your personality that compliment each other perfectly!

13. Laffy Taffy

You are super outgoing and make a lasting impression on everyone you meet. You are the person no one forgets about. You are full of amazing experiences that are once-in-a-lifetime! You have no problem starting conversations with all of the knowledge you have.

14. Reece's Peanut Butter Cups

You are nothing but classy. You are wise beyond your years when it comes to life experiences. You have everything planned out in your head and will not settle until you get the best. No one dare doubts your knowledge when it comes to life experiences. You also LOVE the holidays! When the does Christmas season start? For you, it's November 1st!

15. Sour Patch Kids

You are the prankster in your friend group. You were the kid who hid in the bushes and scared everyone who came up to your door during trick-or-treating. But you know when enough is enough. You are not afraid to push some boundaries or try something new (even when it could be dangerous).

Halloween season is great for many reasons: Halloween decor, carving pumpkins and dressing up as someone else. Whether your favorite sweets are on this list or not, Halloween will never get old as long as there is candy involved.

15 Things Only Lake People Will Understand

There's no other place you'd rather be in the summer.

The people that spend their summers at the lake are a unique group of people. Whether you grew up going to the lake, have only recently started going, or have only been once or twice, you know it takes a certain kind of person to be a lake person. To the long-time lake people, the lake holds a special place in your heart, no matter how dirty the water may look. Every year when summer rolls back around, you can't wait to fire up the boat and get back out there. Here is a list of things you can probably identify with as a fellow lake-goer.

1. A bad day at the lake is still better than a good day not at the lake.

It's your place of escape, where you can leave everything else behind and just enjoy the beautiful summer day. No matter what kind of week you had, being able to come and relax without having to worry about anything else is the best therapy there is. After all, there's nothing better than a day of hanging out in the hot sun, telling old funny stories and listening to your favorite music.

2. You know the best beaches and coves to go to.

Whether you want to just hang out and float or go walk around on a beach, you know the best spots. These often have to be based on the people you're with, given that some "party coves" can get a little too crazy for little kids on board. I still have vivid memories from when I was six that scared me when I saw the things drunk girls would do for beads.

3. You have no patience for the guy who can’t back his trailer into the water right.

When there's a long line of trucks waiting to dump their boats in the water, there's always that one clueless guy who can't get it right, and takes 5 attempts and holds up the line. No one likes that guy. One time my dad got so fed up with a guy who was taking too long that he actually got out of the car and asked this guy if he could just do it for him. So he got into the guy's car, threw it in reverse, and got it backed in on the first try. True story.

4. Doing the friendly wave to every boat you pass.

Similar to the "jeep wave," almost everyone waves to other boats passing by. It's just what you do, and is seen as a normal thing by everyone.

5. The cooler is always packed, mostly with beer.

Alcohol seems to be a big part of the lake experience, but other drinks are squeezed into the room remaining in the cooler for the kids, not to mention the wide assortment of chips and other foods in the snack bag.

6. Giving the idiot who goes 30 in a "No Wake

Zone" a piece of your mind.

There's nothing worse than floating in the water, all settled in and minding your business, when some idiot barrels through. Now your anchor is loose, and you're left jostled by the waves when it was nice and perfectly still before. This annoyance is typically answered by someone yelling some choice words to them that are probably accompanied by a middle finger in the air.

7. You have no problem with peeing in the water.

It's the lake, and some social expectations are a little different here, if not lowered quite a bit. When you have to go, you just go, and it's no big deal to anyone because they do it too.

8. You know the frustration of getting your anchor stuck.

The number of anchors you go through as a boat owner is likely a number that can be counted on two hands. Every once in a while, it gets stuck on something on the bottom of the lake, and the only way to fix the problem is to cut the rope, and you have to replace it.

9. Watching in awe at the bigger, better boats that pass by.

If you're the typical lake-goer, you likely might have an average sized boat that you're perfectly happy with. However, that doesn't mean you don't stop and stare at the fast boats that loudly speed by, or at the obnoxiously huge yachts that pass.

10. Knowing any swimsuit that you own with white in it is best left for the pool or the ocean.

You've learned this the hard way, coming back from a day in the water and seeing the flowers on your bathing suit that were once white, are now a nice brownish hue.

11. The momentary fear for your life as you get launched from the tube.

If the driver knows how to give you a good ride, or just wants to specifically throw you off, you know you're done when you're speeding up and heading straight for a big wave. Suddenly you're airborne, knowing you're about to completely wipe out, and you eat pure wake. Then you get back on and do it all again.

12. You're able to go to the restaurants by the water wearing minimal clothing.

One of the many nice things about the life at the lake is that everybody cares about everything a little less. Rolling up to the place wearing only your swimsuit, a cover-up and flip flops, you fit right in. After a long day when you're sunburned, a little buzzed, and hungry, you're served without any hesitation.

13. Having unexpected problems with your boat.

Every once in a while you're hit with technical difficulties, no matter what type of watercraft you have. This is one of the most annoying setbacks when you're looking forward to just having a carefree day on the water, but it's bound to happen. This is just one of the joys that come along with being a boat owner.

14. Having a name for your boat unique to you and your life.

One of the many interesting things that make up the lake culture is the fact that many people name their boats. They can range from basic to funny, but they are unique to each and every owner, and often have interesting and clever meanings behind them.

15. There's no better place you'd rather be in the summer.

Summer is your all-time favorite season, mostly because it's spent at the lake. Whether you're floating in the cool water under the sun, or taking a boat ride as the sun sets, you don't have a care in the world at that moment. The people that don't understand have probably never experienced it, but it's what keeps you coming back every year.

5 Carb-Filled Foods That Are The Absolute Best

Carboholics, you’ll understand.


I basically live off of carbs. Anyone else who shares this unfortunate love of carbs will understand that there is truly no substitute for bread. If you are a carbaholic, you know that carbs are terrible for you but filling at the same time. Here are my favorite foods with sadly, lots of carbs.

1. Sushi


This would be really healthy if it weren’t for all the rice.

2. Cereal


I especially love cheerios which are basically just breaded, delicious rings of unhealthy.

3. Grilled Cheese


You get the best of both worlds here with unhealthy bread and cheese!

4. Fruit


This one is certainly more healthy than the others, and a true favorite.

5. Pasta


Pasta of all kinds is simply unbeatable. If you ever travel to Italy, you will find pasta never gets old.

6. Bagels


I personally eat waaay too many bagels than I would like to admit.

If you love carb-filled foods like me, I'm sorry. I recommend traveling to Italy however to fulfill all your carb needs (lots of pizza and pasta)!
