ESN Scavenger Hunters Love Candy!

The ESN Scavenger hunt last week was for Candy.  I know, I'm late on this one so I picked a "candy" item from each of the ESN scavenger hunters.  We all have our favorite candy whether it be chocolate, fruit or mints.  There are the special candies associated with Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and Halloween into Thanksgiving.  And, don't forget the box of candy for Mother's Day. 
I can't really say I have a favorite, there are so many that I love - Hersey with Almonds, Mounds, Heath Bars and Midnight Milky Ways (they use to be called Forever Yours back in the '50s and then they disappeared for decades).  So glad they have finally brought them back. Oh, and I love Turtles, chocolate-covered caramels, truffles, chocolate-covered raisins and M&M peanuts. 
When your kids were little, did you ever hide the candy so you could have it all for yourself?  I did - use to hide the Hersey Kisses and once they were in bed, I'd treat myself!  Later, my girls told me they knew where they were all along.
From left to right, here are the candy treats I found at the eCrater stores of the ESN Scavenger Hunters....
