Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, even favorite cooking gear. Do you like, dislike, love, crave, despise, wish for, use in your own kitchen? The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell!
TRUE CONFESSION: I always buy extra Halloween candy, just so there will be some left over. Because this can be dangerous (in a delicious way), my current be-kind-to-my-hips strategy is to buy only the candy that never tempts me: those famous little peanut butter cups, or chocolate bars with coconut. The kids in our neighborhood love them, but peanut butter and coconut just aren't my thing. I'm partial to Hershey miniatures, Junior Mints, and M&Ms. Oh, okay: red licorice Twizzlers, too. So, come on, 'fess up: what's your favorite Halloween candy? Did you buy too much, hoping for leftovers? Or, did you beg your kids for some of their trick-or-treat haul?
