    1. My favorite Limited Edition was when KitKat came out with that orange-chocolate (*real* chocolate, not the orange-colored white chocolate coating ones they still make) bar.  It was right before the holidays a few years ago, and it was delicious!

    2. I’m *really* looking forward to Java Twix!

      Comment by MystTeree on 10/25/07 at 10:32 am #
    3. I love all of the Easter egg versions of regular candy bars—especially Reese’s!

      Comment by Jen on 10/25/07 at 10:39 am #
    4. The Coffee Kit-Kats were the best.

      Comment by Iva Verble on 10/25/07 at 10:44 am #
    5. OMG my favorite limited edition were the Reese’s Big Cup with whole peanuts and with mixed whole nuts in them.  I was so sad when I couldn’t find them anymore!!!  They were the best candy invention ever, IMHO, and if they ever make them full time i will simply keel over with joy!

      Comment by Allegra De Angelo on 10/25/07 at 10:45 am #
    6. I am totally jazzed about the Java Twix - can’t wait!!

      Comment by Cindy on 10/25/07 at 10:46 am #
    7. My ideal limited edition candy would be Life-Sized Sour Patch Kids. Of course, it would be even better if they weren’t limited edition, but a regular product!

      Comment by Jeff on 10/25/07 at 10:50 am #
    8. I have always loved the Easter bunny & duck sweettarts. delicious tart, chalky goodness!

      Comment by Brittney on 10/25/07 at 10:50 am #
    9. I really wish that they’d have Mint Kitkat’s all year.

      Comment by Megan on 10/25/07 at 10:53 am #
    10. I love the dark chocolate twix!!

      Comment by Erin on 10/25/07 at 10:53 am #
    11. Candy corn hershey kisses sound pretty awesome right about now :D

      Comment by Paula on 10/25/07 at 10:58 am #
    12. Reese’s cups are my favorite candy, I enjoy finer chocolates such as Scharffen Berger and Valrhona but I really love Reese’s cups, they’re classic.  I just find the peanut butter and chocolate in those things to be perfect…so.. my favorite limited edition candy would have to be the pumpkin, Christmas tree, heart, easter egg, etc shapes of the reese’s cup.

      Comment by James Berry on 10/25/07 at 11:02 am #
    13. My favorite would have to be the Kit Kat dark chocolate.  And not when it was in the miniature mix bag, the real normal sized version.  But anything with a dark chocolate version is delicious too!

      Comment by Stephanie on 10/25/07 at 11:12 am #
    14. I’m with James. I really loved the dark chocolate mini Reese’s PB cups. But I also love the easter egg shaped version. It is hard for the Reese’s pb line to go wrong. I’ve pretty much liked everything… nix that. Not a fan of the white choco or inside outs. Otherwise, YAY Reese’s.

      And YAY Cybele!

      Comment by KateC on 10/25/07 at 11:21 am #
    15. I absolutely adored the white chocolate Kit Kat.  for some reason, the filling between the wafers tasted more mocha-y, and less chocolate than the original.

      Comment by Rachael on 10/25/07 at 11:32 am #
    16. I really love the Retro Starburts - especially Optimus Lime!

      Comment by Lydia on 10/25/07 at 11:48 am #
    17. I love dark chocolate snickers - are they limited edition?  I also really enjoyed the Cherry Cordial Kisses.

      Comment by Astrid on 10/25/07 at 11:49 am #
    18. Carnival skittles… mmm! I’m a skittle freak and those were just more to love. (As a seasonal but slightly irrelevant aside, I REALLY miss halloween oreos. Sniff!)

      Comment by Maggie on 10/25/07 at 11:51 am #
    19. My ideal limited edition candy would have to be Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate Candy corn (One candy with each of those being one of the 3 colors/flavors….instead of orange, yellow and white). I dont know how it would work, but I think it sounds like a fantastic idea!

      Comment by Emily on 10/25/07 at 11:54 am #
    20. i loved the coffee kit-kats…there needs to be more chocolate coffee combos in the candy world

      Comment by Miranda on 10/25/07 at 11:59 am #
    21. definitely the coffee kitkats.

      Comment by shannon on 10/25/07 at 12:08 pm #
    22. Tropical Dots were so delicious! I don’t know if they were limited edition, but I can’t find them anywhere anymore so I am guessing they were.

      Also, I really enjoyed the Elvis reese’s. Perfect combo of 2 great flavors.

      Comment by Jeff Sifford on 10/25/07 at 12:16 pm #
    23. My favorite?  M&Ms; limited mint M&M they do every Christmas.  I have to stock up whenever I find them because they disappear around January 1st.  They’re so very yummy.

      Comment by Renee Reel on 10/25/07 at 12:16 pm #
    24. 100 Grand Dark

      Comment by Rachel on 10/25/07 at 12:18 pm #
    25. def loved white chocolate reesesss

      Comment by Hetal Sheladia on 10/25/07 at 12:18 pm #
    26. I love the coconut nests that Russell Stover’s puts out for major holidays.  Delicious.

      Comment by Abigail Kammerzell on 10/25/07 at 12:23 pm #
    27. I looooved the Orange Kitkats that they had in England for a while. SO GOOD!

      Comment by Caroline on 10/25/07 at 12:29 pm #
    28. I LOVE the Elvis Reese’s!

      Comment by Elizabeth Pritchett on 10/25/07 at 12:30 pm #
    29. My favorite Limited Edition candy would have to be White Chocolate Reese’s, right before Christmas, when they made them into miniature tree shapes.  The Seroogy’s Peanut Butter Crisp Bars were delicious, too, but they are only for sale maybe once or twice a year.  Also, an ideal Limited Edition candy would have to be a sort of like a Sky Bar (it’s hard to explain), having five or six little portions of chocolates or candies each with a different center-like one be peanut butter filled, one be caramel and marshmallow filled like a See Scotchmallow, etc.  They’d be connected in a row, so you could just break apart a piece like in a Sky Bar (but the real Sky Bar doesn’t taste very good.)  smile

    30. I still have a freezer full of Elvis Reese’s Cups.  I don’t see them around so often anymore, so I’m going easy on my stash so it’ll last me as long as possible.

      Comment by ellen on 10/25/07 at 12:41 pm #
    31. The orange kit-kats were awesome. Not the funky white chocolate, colored orange ones they have out this Halloween but the orange flavored ones.  yum!

      Comment by regan on 10/25/07 at 12:44 pm #
    32. I love the pink Peppermint Patties.

      Comment by Nanette on 10/25/07 at 12:50 pm #
    33. I really loved crispy M&M’s. They were oh so good. Actually I don’t know if they were actually limited edition, but I don’t see them anymore so they must’ve been. Huh.

      Comment by Wiley on 10/25/07 at 12:52 pm #
    34. I really loved the Reese’s Elvis Edition!

      Good luck on this year’s novel.

      Comment by Jen on 10/25/07 at 12:59 pm #
    35. A tie between Hershey’s milk chocolate truffles and the Elvis cups.  I’d love to try the 3 Musketeers mix, though, because I love the texture of 2 Musketeers but not the taste.

      Comment by Sophia on 10/25/07 at 1:08 pm #
    36. I love the Elvis Reese’s with banana and peanut butter.  I was nervous at first to try them but I tried them and loved them.

      Comment by Amanda on 10/25/07 at 1:13 pm #
    37. I’d love it if there was a dark chocolate version of peanut butter m&m’s raspberry.

      Comment by Jess on 10/25/07 at 1:26 pm #
    38. I have massive love for the Cherry Kitkats that came out for Valentine’s some time ago. So good!

      Comment by Kristin on 10/25/07 at 1:28 pm #
    39. Raspberry M&Ms;, I’m trying to get my fill before they are gone again!

      Comment by Casey on 10/25/07 at 1:30 pm #
    40. Favorite? That’s like trying to name one’s favorite offspring.  Hmm… since chocolate is my drug of choice, I’ll pick anything M&M.  OTOH, I have some many wonderful childhood memories of anything Starburst.  Have to comment on a major yuck, though—the Elvis Reese’s!  Horrible!  Since I purchased one on impulse at the pharmacy where, ironically, I had to buy my dad a new insulin test machine, I will forever associate the two.

      Comment by RogueTess on 10/25/07 at 1:36 pm #
    41. I love Mint M&M’s that they have around Christmas time.  I can never get enough of those.

      Comment by Jeffininer on 10/25/07 at 1:39 pm #
    42. There were orange creme Hershey’s Kisses around Easter last year…those were pretty darn good. Although I’d be super happy if they brought back Cookies and Creme Hershey’s Nuggets. Even if they were limited edition - I wouldn’t care, I’d still buy all of them.

      Comment by Mary on 10/25/07 at 1:46 pm #
    43. My very favorite LE candy was the Inside Out Reese’s.  Something about the PB to chocolate ratio was just amazing.  I like them better than normal Reese’s.

      Comment by Chelsea on 10/25/07 at 1:48 pm #
    44. Well, if we are dreaming here. . . Dark Chocolate Coffee Crisp!

      Comment by Julie on 10/25/07 at 1:48 pm #
    45. Elvis Reese’s!

      Comment by Donna Starry on 10/25/07 at 1:49 pm #
    46. LOVE this site and the candy giveaways. I miss green tea kit kats (I ordered them from Japan)!

      Comment by Jac on 10/25/07 at 1:50 pm #
    47. My favorit limeted edition candy was a tie between mint M&M’s and the elvis reese penut butter bannana cups

      Comment by Kin sedren on 10/25/07 at 1:51 pm #
    48. yum, i can NOT decide. hm, posssibly the Reese?s Big Cup with the assorted nuts. but that’s but me throwing ONE out there! ah

      Comment by BITES on 10/25/07 at 2:05 pm #
    49. I extremely miss the crispy m&m’s. I don’t think they were intended to be limited edition but since they no longer exist, they were definitely limited. Fortunately, there seems to be a whole line up of new limited edition delectables coming soon! Can’t WAIT!

      Comment by Jennifer on 10/25/07 at 2:07 pm #
    50. I love love love anything coffee flavored and Twix is already my favorite candy bar so I am especially looking forward to finding a Java Twix!

      Comment by Heather on 10/25/07 at 2:17 pm #
    51. My favorite limited edition candy Easter cocoa flavored Peeps Rabbits, Carnival Skittles and strawberry/orange creme heart peeps from Valentines!

      Comment by Erin K. on 10/25/07 at 2:19 pm #
    52. My favorite limited edition candy was Elvis Reeses!!

      Comment by Jack Greaves on 10/25/07 at 2:21 pm #
    53. It’s impossible for me to choose my favorite LE of all time, but I am looking forward to trying a Java Twix! Chocolate, caramel, coffee, are like a perfect combination; what more could I ask for?

      Comment by Keri on 10/25/07 at 2:22 pm #
    54. My favorite had to be the white chocolate M&M’s to coincide with the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

      Comment by Stuart Taylor on 10/25/07 at 2:28 pm #
    55. Carnival Skittles, I’m a sucker for all things cotton candy or bubble gum flavored.

      Comment by Lee on 10/25/07 at 2:38 pm #
    56. my ideal candy bar would be something thats dense, with caramel, chocolate and filled with nuts. something like baby ruth but fancier!

      Comment by rika on 10/25/07 at 2:39 pm #
    57. My favorite limited edition candy was the Hershey bar with mixed in mini reese’s pieces….it was AWESOME. I would be so excited if they brought it back!

      Comment by Kara on 10/25/07 at 2:49 pm #
    58. I REALLY want to try that Java Twix!

      Comment by Brett on 10/25/07 at 3:00 pm #
    59. My favorite limited editions are the King Size Reese’s Pumpkins.  MMMmmm Peanut butter

      Comment by Justin on 10/25/07 at 3:10 pm #
    60. Was the Hershey Cookies ‘N’ Cream a limited edition?  I recall these from several years ago but haven’t seen them recently.  I also recall Nestle Alpine, it was a white chocolate Nestle bar.  I haven’t seen that in forever!

      Comment by Patrick on 10/25/07 at 3:10 pm #
    61. I love the Elvis Reese?s with banana and peanut butter.

      Comment by cristal on 10/25/07 at 3:13 pm #
    62. Twix Dark Chocolate.  I’m a sucker for dark chocolate…the more bitter, the better smile

      Comment by suebee on 10/25/07 at 3:14 pm #
    63. Dark Chocolate Twix! God yes, those were soo good smile

      Comment by Shabina on 10/25/07 at 3:17 pm #
    64. According to other comments, this was available in the past, but I’ve never seen it so I hope they make it available again: dark chocolate mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

      Comment by Nicole on 10/25/07 at 3:17 pm #
    65. White chocolate with mint and candy bits from Hershey.

      1. White Chocolate is SO delish
      2: the chocolate and mint combo is stellar on all accounts
      3. and the beautiful, festive, red and green bits decorating the mini-bar were warmth-and-fuzz inducing in and of themselves.

      I LOVE them like I love your blog which I miss severely every Saturday and Sunday.

      Comment by Elise on 10/25/07 at 3:21 pm #
    66. mmmm.  i loved the coffee kit kats.  and i really like the limited edition cadbury dark with fruit & nuts.  really looking forward to trying the java twix.  smile

      Comment by amy on 10/25/07 at 3:24 pm #
    67. Elvis Reese?s Peanut Butter & Banana Creme

      are so incredibly awesome - both my father and I love these things, but we had the hardest time finding them in a store.

      Comment by moonflower on 10/25/07 at 3:42 pm #
    68. My favorite limited edition candies were the “cherry kit-kats” that have been released around Valentine’s Day for the last two years. Here’s hoping they come back again!

      Comment by Aaron on 10/25/07 at 3:43 pm #
    69. My favorite was/is the peanut butter covered paydays.  I swear they’re creamier than the ordinary paydays.

      Comment by Chris Janson on 10/25/07 at 3:45 pm #
    70. I wish they still made those Cookies & Cream Twix

      Comment by Charlie on 10/25/07 at 3:46 pm #
    71. My favorite limited edition candies are vanilla tootsie rolls and caramel tootsie lollypops.

      Comment by Sandy on 10/25/07 at 3:46 pm #
    72. I would have to say my fav is Razzberry M&M’s. They make me smile with their pink color and fruity/chocolate flavor.

      Comment by Suzanne on 10/25/07 at 3:48 pm #
    73. Those Cherry Cordial Kisses were amazing. I got sick eating them.

      Also not very limited, but only available during holiday season are the mint M&Ms;
      I’m really interested in those candy corn kisses.

      Comment by Clevo on 10/25/07 at 3:49 pm #
    74. I think it’s probably more of a failed candy than it was a limited edition, but about six or seven years ago there was a Wonka (I think) candy Easter egg called “PB Mallows” that were chocolate eggs half filled with peanut butter and half filled with marshmallow creme. Ooooh, they were so good, but evidentally I was the only one who liked them, because they haven’t released them any Easter since…

      I also am loooooving the limited edition Elvis peanut butter-banana cups from Reeses. Yum!

      Comment by Pumpkin on 10/25/07 at 3:52 pm #
    75. The mint three musketeers is my fave so far, but I think it’s not LE anymore.

      Comment by Janet Strother on 10/25/07 at 3:55 pm #
    76. I love the Dark Chocolate snickers, but I *think* they are regular edition now.  I am also super excited about java Twix.

      Comment by Courtney on 10/25/07 at 4:03 pm #
    77. Hmm…I don’t remember missing any limited edition candies. I thought the limited edition tie dye M&Ms; were funny, if not exactly tie dye looking.

      Comment by Karen on 10/25/07 at 4:04 pm #
    78. I’m gonna go with peppermint peeps.  There’s nothing in the world better than peeps, so they qualify for any “best of” category…even best limited edition.  If only they sold them in ‘mash-up’ sets.

      Comment by caitlin rose on 10/25/07 at 4:07 pm #
    79. My fave is sixlets. I have loved them since i was a kid. I used to have to go to ballgames for my brother & sister that i did not want to go to but looked forward to being there just so I could get a package of sixlets. i like the red ones best. i still like the red ones best & i am 40 now.

      Comment by Carla on 10/25/07 at 4:10 pm #
    80. I really loved the Shrek M&Ms;.  I guess just because they were bigger which made me think they had more of a chocolate kick.

      Comment by Kelly on 10/25/07 at 4:19 pm #
    81. Loved the Elvis banana creme Reese’ cups!

      Comment by Molly on 10/25/07 at 4:25 pm #
    82. for me, it would be the green tea hershey’s kisses

      Comment by Will Booth on 10/25/07 at 4:28 pm #
    83. I would have to say my favorite limited edition candy is Carnival Skittles… delicious!  I especially love the Red Licorice flavor.

      Comment by Tyler on 10/25/07 at 4:28 pm #
    84. so far i guess the mint 3 musketeers
      and im not sure if it counts but if it does then the strawberry valentines peep hearts hands down!

      Comment by laura on 10/25/07 at 4:33 pm #
    85. The Reese’s Pieces w/ Peanuts are the first thing to come to mind, but virtually any limited edition Reese’s product (short of maybe the fudge cups) would be on top for me.

      Comment by Daniel on 10/25/07 at 4:49 pm #
    86. My favorite limited edition has to be the 100 Grand Dark.  The caramel, crisped rice and dark chocolate just go perfectly together.  And if Milky Way Midnight was limited edition, I’d be voting for that.

      Comment by Miriam on 10/25/07 at 4:52 pm #
    87. The Elvis Reese Cups - the miniatures, in particular!

      Comment by Fae on 10/25/07 at 4:53 pm #
    88. I really like the dark chocolate Reese’s pb cups, probably because they’re just a hint of dark. I am dying to try the Elvis cups!

      Comment by Julie Dyer on 10/25/07 at 4:53 pm #
    89. Are the mint three musketeers a limited edition?  I LOVE those!  I’m hoping the answer is “no.”  I tried the Elvis cups—meh.

      Comment by good enough cook on 10/25/07 at 5:13 pm #
    90. I miss the Skittles Ice Cream Mix :(

      Comment by skittles man on 10/25/07 at 5:21 pm #
    91. My favorite is Mint Hershey kisses.

      Comment by Sheri on 10/25/07 at 5:45 pm #
    92. Dark chocolate/coconut Hershey’s Kisses! Really, anything with the combination of dark chocolate and coconut would be great.

      Comment by Leslie on 10/25/07 at 6:07 pm #
    93. mint m&ms;!!

      Comment by jess on 10/25/07 at 6:22 pm #
    94. Inside-Out Reese’s peanut butter cups, absolutely no question.  I found these at Walgreens last Halloween, I was really happy because I thought they were “extinct,” but I haven’t seen any since then.

      Comment by Anne-Marie Hodge on 10/25/07 at 6:23 pm #
    95. Cherry Cordial Kisses

      Comment by Jonathan Keim on 10/25/07 at 7:15 pm #
    96. I really love maple creams, but maple flavored stuff is so hard to find outside of a high-end confectionary. Bun is the only producer I know of that makes consumer-grade maple products, but even the maple Buns are really hard to find! Plus they have too sweet milk chocolate on them. So my ideal limited edition would be a dark chocolate maple-cream filled candy, and if it has to be covered with nuts (like a Bun), then the nuts should be cashews instead of peanuts. Pecans would be okay, too. But not almonds - they don’t agree with my digestion.

      Comment by Tricia on 10/25/07 at 7:28 pm #
    97. I have been loving the three musketeers dark chocolate mint. They are like a york peppermint patty but more creamy mint to chocolate ratio. I am going to be sad when they are gone for good.

      Comment by Michelle on 10/25/07 at 7:33 pm #
    98. kit kat temptations - hazelnut praline

      these were sooo addicting.

      Comment by Michelle Hallare on 10/25/07 at 7:33 pm #
    99. My favorite Limited Edition candy was the marshmallow take 5 bars.

      Comment by laura on 10/25/07 at 7:37 pm #
    100. My favorite Limited Edition is theWhite Chocolate Reese?s. YUMMY!!

      Comment by Shelly on 10/25/07 at 7:43 pm #
    101. Hmm, I’d have to go with the Twix Java smile

      Yay for candy!

      Comment by Samantha on 10/25/07 at 8:18 pm #
    102. I would enjoy a dark chocolate, mint three musketeers bar

      Comment by Marissa on 10/25/07 at 8:22 pm #
    103. I know this is strange, but I actually like Sakura kit kats! raspberry

      Comment by SC on 10/25/07 at 10:46 pm #
    104. I don’t know if they’re actually limited edition, but I have a huge weakness for cookies n cream M&Ms;.

      Comment by Martha on 10/26/07 at 2:08 am #
    105. I love the mint M&M’s… they’re especially good in cookies.

      Comment by Stephanie on 10/26/07 at 2:22 am #
    106. I LOVE Reese’s Elvis cups. I hope they come back again

      Comment by Bonney on 10/26/07 at 2:25 am #
    107. My favorite limited candy was the “White Chocolate Peppermint Swoops”. Swoops in general were great, but those were fantastic.

      Comment by Claudia on 10/26/07 at 3:03 am #
    108. I know it may be a bit silly, but the candy I miss was actually gum.  Back in ‘84 or ‘85 I think, there was a gum called Bubble Eez [sic] and no one I’ve talked to has ever heard of it, but it came in packs of six and the packaging was an awesome crate-type thing and it was the softest gum made especially for bubbles.  I miss it, even in this day and age of uber-gum saturation.

      Comment by Matt Amyx on 10/26/07 at 3:05 am #
    109. This might fall into the “really enjoyed them because I was a little kid but would hate them now” category (right next to Yoo-Hoo), but I always try to keep an eye out for Cookies n’ Cream Twix.  It had to have been at least 15 years ago when those actually existed, but I remember them being rather tasty.  Basically they were a regular Twix bar, but with a chocolate cookie, and an Oreo-like cream instead of the caramel.

    110. I am freaking out over the concept of the Java Twix. WANT! Also, coffee flavored gummi bears would be fab. (little gummi coffee cups? lattes? hot chocolate?!? I swoon.)

    111. I just tasted the Reese’s PB and Banana and OH are they heavenly!

      Comment by Nicole M. on 10/26/07 at 3:30 am #
    112. My favorite are the Elvis Reeses PB cups, I love them!

      Comment by Carrie on 10/26/07 at 4:07 am #
    113. Here is the perfect candy bar:
      I would combine the following ingredients from each of these already existing candy bars.

      Skor—- toffee
      Nestle Crunch—-crisp rice
      Twix—-Crisp cookie

      Man, that would be soooo good.

      Comment by S. Moore on 10/26/07 at 4:18 am #
    114. My favorite would probably by the Hershey’s Dark Chocolate miniatures (particularly the Krackel version) or the Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Nuggets.

      Comment by Debbie Cavitt on 10/26/07 at 4:23 am #
    115. They seem to have become a regular item now, but for a while they were hard to find: Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans. I think Anchovy, Pepper, and Grass are actually pretty tasty!

      Bertie Bott’s Vomit actually tasted bad enough that I could hardly swallow it, which is a rarity in a world of candies that say “SO INTENSE CAN YOU TAKE IT?!?!?” and what they really mean is “contains lactic acid.”

    116. My fav is the Candy Corn Hershey Kisses ^___^

    117. Dark chocolate Kit-Kats!

      Comment by Mary on 10/26/07 at 5:16 am #
    118. I can’t wait to try the java twix.

      Comment by Nohemi on 10/26/07 at 5:17 am #
    119. I LOVE the mint Twix’s released during Christmas time.  sooooo gooooood!  I also really like dark chocolate snickers which is fortunately “regular edition” not just special anymore.

      Comment by Julie on 10/26/07 at 5:19 am #
    120. I don’t know if this counts as limited edition, or more of just a holiday thing, but I am addicted to Cadbury mini eggs! I like to roll them along the roof of my mouth to crack the shell, and then cleave the shell off with my teeth to get at the chocolate inside. I once went to the dentist around Easter, and she asked me why the roof of my mouth was so bruised! :-D

      Comment by Jessie on 10/26/07 at 5:28 am #
    121. Hands down the reese’s egg and the reeses pumpkin.  When you take away the beveled chocolate border found on the regular reeses peanut butter cups, what is left is the best part!  Just a thin layer of chocolate, and all that peanut butter.  I wish they made these all year round.  And they are even better frozen!

      Comment by Amanda on 10/26/07 at 5:30 am #
    122. mmm…mint kitkats!

      Comment by Judy K on 10/26/07 at 5:32 am #
    123. I see a lot of references to holiday candies, and although I adore all of the various Reese’s incarnations, as I’m getting older, I find I really love the Holiday Snickers figures, especially the Snickers Santa Clause figures - they’re just so much “beefier” than the regular candy bars, plus I swear they have more caramel in them!!!

      Also, dealing in library land, I’m a huge fan of all the Harry Potter candy - it’s so hard to find them all in place and in stock! The icemice are fun!

      Comment by Krista on 10/26/07 at 5:35 am #
    124. Hmmm, this is a toughy. Since a lot of people are mentioning holiday candy, I really like the holiday shaped peanut butter cups. I would never buy a regular Reese’s PB cup but I love the shapes. This year I found some ginormous pumpkin-shaped PB cups.

      I mourn the fact that I never got to try the caramel M&Ms;.

      Comment by Emily L. on 10/26/07 at 6:02 am #
    125. Probably the dark chocolate 100 Grands. Yum!

      Comment by g on 10/26/07 at 6:05 am #
    126. I actually really loved the white chocolate M & M’s that came out for the Pirates movie. Other than that, I recently reviewed the 3 Musketeers Mini Mix, and that’s a big winner.

      Comment by Shopping Jen on 10/26/07 at 6:13 am #
    127. I think the only limited candy I’ve bought was the cherry cordial kisses. They were okay, but ideally I’d like something with dark chocolate and mint. There’s a fair trade organic chocolate bar that comes close, but it has crushed peppermints that I don’t care for.

      Comment by Kate on 10/26/07 at 6:21 am #
    128. mm i definitely agree with whoever said the christmas mint m&ms;. yum!

      Comment by Micki on 10/26/07 at 6:23 am #
    129. I would love it if they made dark chocolate Smarties (the Canadian/British kind) or mint chocolate Smarties!

      Comment by Tara on 10/26/07 at 6:28 am #
    130. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, ANYTHING green tea! Specifically, green tea Hershey’s kisses.

      Comment by Britney on 10/26/07 at 6:36 am #
    131. Oooh ooh pick me pick me! Hehe.

      The Twix Java infatuates me like none other. I have yet to try it but I like coffee and I lovvve Twix so it must be a matchmade in heaven.  Thanks for the opportunity!

      Comment by Hillary on 10/26/07 at 6:38 am #
    132. I think that one flavor that is under-exploited is blueberry.  I would be in heaven if KitKat or Nestle Crunch were to come out with a limited-edition, white chocolate versions with a tinge of blueberry.

      Comment by Richard on 10/26/07 at 6:42 am #
    133. Mint M&M’s and the Candy Cane Hershey’s Kisses…I found the kisses last week and stocked up however I am still on the hunt for the M7M’s.

      Comment by Kimberly on 10/26/07 at 7:06 am #
    134. I would love some grapefruit heads or raspberry flavored “heads”!

      Comment by Dan on 10/26/07 at 7:06 am #
    135. My favorite LE candy is the Mint Kit Kat.  I love chocolate mint and I really love Kit Kats so the combo was great for me.

      Comment by Jen Smith on 10/26/07 at 7:06 am #
    136. I love the bat-shaped York Peppermint Patties I saw a few Halloweens ago.  They may have them again now, but I haven’t seen any thus far.

      Comment by Maura on 10/26/07 at 7:11 am #
    137. I don’t know what my favorite limited edition candy would be,
      probably the mint M&Ms; they used to do a few years ago. (Not sure if they still do them now. :O)
      Those were yummy.

      I think the Elvis Reese’s would be a favorite, because I love banana, but I havn’t seen them anywhere around here. (I’ve looked many places.)

      I bet that the Banana Charleston chew was amazing, I wish they didn’t discontinue that.
      And I wish I was able to try it before they did.

      The perfect candy, I think, would probably be something you interact with. I remember about 8 years ago having these candy bars that were chocolate, and they had these little cups in them. It came with some fillings and stuff and you got to make your own candy bar.
      You could either make every bite completely different (different separate fillings for each) or combine them to make whatever you want.
      Interaction with the creation is always a plus, I think. Makes it more fun.

      I think it would be interesting to see them make an M&M with some other flavor inside.
      Aside chocolate, chocolate mint, blah blah.
      Maybe some fruity flavors or something, or maybe a chocolate orange flavor.
      I know that Skittles are kind of like fruity M&Ms;, but I don’t mean that.
      I would still want the center to be like M&Ms;, soft, not chewy like Skittles, and not extremely sweet.
      Maybe flavored chocolate.
      Or I wish they would put a gummy inside instead of a peanut. Mm.
      Or fudge, or something. They can do so much with them,
      it would be great to see it expand I think. :}

      They seem to be limiting themselves to chocolate and peanuts.
      And the Crunch ones were my favorite, but I think they discontinued those now? If they did, doesn’t make sense to me.
      Oh, and the Peanut Butter ones, that was a step in the right direction, they should do more like that.


      Comment by Shane on 10/26/07 at 7:13 am #
    138. I really liked the inside-out Reeses Peanut Butter Cups a few years back.  Very tasty!

      Comment by Lee Glasgow on 10/26/07 at 7:30 am #
    139. It’s gotta be the Elvis Reece’s.  They are a hunka-hunka bannana yum!

    140. I just wanna try Java twix :3 I am vegan but SOMETIMES I NEED TO TRY A FEW DAIRY LADEN PRODUCTS ya know?

      Comment by Giuseppe Verdi on 10/26/07 at 7:37 am #
    141. My favorite limited edition candy so far has been the Payday PB Avalanche—a regular Payday bar covered in a peanut butter coating.  Very tasty and very satisfying!

      Comment by Kari on 10/26/07 at 7:47 am #
    142. I love love LOVE the coconut hershey kisses.  I know you didn’t rate them very high but I put em in my freezer and they rock to me! If I could have my ideal candy it would be a york peppermint patty with coconut instead of mint or those gigantic gummy bears from willy wonka. Pineapple flavored. And some dipped in dark chocolate. yum.

      Comment by Alli on 10/26/07 at 7:48 am #
    143. I really enjoyed the Mounds Orange - the color was odd and intense but the flavor was nice!

      Comment by April on 10/26/07 at 7:48 am #
    144. Coffee Kitkats for sure. 

      This isn’t candy and I didn’t get to try them but Mint Chocolate Pop Tarts also sound amazing…MMmmmmmint Chocolate….

      Comment by Karen on 10/26/07 at 7:53 am #
    145. As a child, my alltime favorite christmas present to get or give was a book of lifesavers.  I know that lifesavers have lost some popularity over the years and have trimmed their flavor options incredibly (very sad).  Still I think it would be awesome to have a special holiday lifesaver roll.  Optional flavors in the roll would be eggnog, rum ball, sugar cookie, gingerbread, old fashioned christmas candy ribbon, candied orange peel, toffee, and of course candycane flavors.  I would want that roll all year long!

      Comment by tricia keyes on 10/26/07 at 7:53 am #
    146. I really like the Hershey’s dark chocolate truffle..mmm…

      Comment by Christine T on 10/26/07 at 7:54 am #
    147. Wow, check out all these comments!  The Elvis Reese’s is my present favorite, and I, like others, have a freezer stash—I have plenty of the mini-cups, but I do need more normal-sized cups for the stash, but it may be too late.

      Comment by Sophie on 10/26/07 at 7:59 am #
    148. I loved the Shrek ogre size peanut butter M&Ms; that came out this spring!

      Comment by Liz on 10/26/07 at 8:15 am #
    149. I vote for mint kitkats. My impulse-shopper novelty taster partner in crime husband votes for the elvis peanut butter cups. My 6 year old would like to find nikel-nips again.

      Comment by Shannon D on 10/26/07 at 8:22 am #
    150. I was dying to try the Elvis Reeses, but never found them.

      At the moment, I’m on a 3 Musketeers kick, so my current dream candy bar would be 3 Musketeers with chopped almonds on top.  Mmmm.

      Comment by Tess on 10/26/07 at 8:28 am #
    151. I love the new limited edition Hershey Kisses for Christmas. The mint ones are sort of like andes mints, but better! And, I really miss the coconut kisses. Just limited edition kisses in general are great!!

      As for those of you with other favorites hershey’s products (that includes Reese’s!), several of them are available at Hershey Chocolate World in Hershey, PA. The big cups with nuts and the elvis ones were there a few weeks ago when i stopped in (its 15 mins from me!).

      I really miss the Hershey’s Cookies and Mint or Mint Chocolate Chip candy bar they had. Now I can only find the cookies and cream (even at Chocolate world!).

      Comment by hannah on 10/26/07 at 8:34 am #
    152. I don’t know if it counts as a limited edition but I adore the Mint Kit Kats. The “Elvis” Reese cups run a close second.

      Comment by Alexis Brown on 10/26/07 at 8:44 am #
    153. My favorite limited edition candy is the dark chocolate Kit Kats.  Those were awesome!

      Comment by Jillian on 10/26/07 at 8:51 am #
    154. I loved the ice-cream skittles. But you know, I will try any limited editions. I am a shamefully easy sell for those…

      Comment by Kristy on 10/26/07 at 8:54 am #
    155. A couple of years ago there was a Hershey bar with Whoppers in it.  It might have been called Two-Fors or Two-Somes.. but in any case, it was awesome.  Why did you have to take it away, Hershey?

      Comment by Alicia on 10/26/07 at 9:03 am #
    156. 100 Grand Dark. Mmm…

      Looking back at your reviews, I wish I could try the pumpkin KitKat, as I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake.

      Comment by Rosa on 10/26/07 at 9:23 am #
    157. In England, I loved the Nestle Double Creme bars that mysteriously left.  Were the outside in reese’s peanut butter cups limited editions, because I adored those as well. 

      My vote though has to echo the mint kit kats. Those rocked.

      Comment by Tessa on 10/26/07 at 9:25 am #
    158. The dark chocolate Twix were my favourite commercial candy I’ve ever had. I’m nearly certain they were limited edition. I used to break them up in 2’s or 3’s, sprinkle a few salt granules on the caramel, and stick ‘em back together.

      Comment by Julia Klaips on 10/26/07 at 9:33 am #
    159. My fav special edition candy was the dark chocolate kit-kat. It was so yummy. I didn’t even realize all those health benefits back then smile

      Comment by Robyn on 10/26/07 at 9:42 am #
    160. mint kit-kats, hands down! 
      not really candy, but i sure do miss golden binaca breath spray.  it hasn’t been made in decades, as far as i can tell. 
      you can approximate the flavor by eating a vanilla mint velamint plus a licorice altoid at the same time.  kind of a hassle!

      Comment by anne henderson on 10/26/07 at 10:13 am #
    161. Favorite one?  Hard to pick just one but I really like the Reese’s Elvis Big Cup.  And since I’m a Canadian living in the US, the two candy bars from Canada that I miss most are Coffee Crisp and Crunchie.  My family just brought me some when they came to visit - and I’m not sharing!  smile

      Comment by Nicole on 10/26/07 at 10:18 am #
    162. The Elvis peanut butter banana Reeses were my favorite!

      Please pick me!  I am poor, but I love candy!

    164. I really liked the Take 5 with marshmallow.
      I’m dying to try the Java Twix, I keep looking for it but haven’t seen it yet. Grr!

      Comment by Katie on 10/26/07 at 11:01 am #
    165. i love how the comments explode whenever free candy is up for grabs!

      my favorite ltd edition candy is the candy cane hershey’s kisses—i’m so glad they’ll be back in stores soon!

      Comment by ruffy on 10/26/07 at 11:13 am #
    166. Dark chocolate Twix was amazing.  As was Dark chocolate Kit Kat.  And Dark chocolate Reese’s Cups.  In fact, I can’t think of a single candy bar that wouldn’t be improved with dark chocolate.

      Comment by Dennis on 10/26/07 at 11:49 am #
    167. Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Mint.

    170. My favorite limited edition candy has to be the starbursts with the retro flavors.  I really liked the discoberry.. smile

      Ok, so I’m not that adventerous.. that’s why I’m hping I win.. smile

      Comment by Bear on 10/26/07 at 12:06 pm #
    171. My favorite candy was the smoothie mix skittles. I really loved them and it stinks that I can’t find them anywhere.

      It would be really great to win.

      Comment by Kelly on 10/26/07 at 12:53 pm #
    172. the best special edition that has not been made would be a white chocolate snickers.  this is the last major candy that hasn’t succumb to the white chocolate craze.

      Comment by jared on 10/26/07 at 1:30 pm #
    173. Favourite limited editions?
      I would say the following interest me;
      Reece’s Big cup(the one that features Elvis, lol)and is flavoured PB and banana,
      Yorks Vanilla mint patties,
      EEk Godiva’s Pie collection (especially the lemon , the key lime pie, the strawberry..(oh heck all of
      Any new flavours of M and M’s,
      and any kind of good dark chocolate with marzipan and maybe some nougat..

      Comment by Mary on 10/26/07 at 1:38 pm #
    174. Kit Kat Dark!

      Also, the Halloween miniature version of Milky Way dark is different and much more delicious than the full size version - though that’s not technically a limited edition.

      Thanks for the great blog!

      Comment by Rebecca on 10/26/07 at 2:02 pm #
    175. I loved the candy cane kisses last year.

    176. The York Truffle Mint Patty.  Yum!!!

      Comment by Maggi on 10/26/07 at 5:02 pm #
    177. I love the Valentine’s Day Heart Shaped Peeps—the vanilla flavored ones are amazing! Also, the Candy Cane Tootsie Roll Pops (at Christmas) are the perfect combination of chocolate and peppermint.

      Comment by Katie on 10/26/07 at 5:04 pm #
    178. My favorite were the white chocolate KitKats. I’m not sure if they still make them but I haven’t seen them in years.

    179. mmmm remember when they made take 5 with chocolate cookies?? mmm that was my fav. i’m also diggin the new twix that are out now - triple chocolate and dark chocolate. caramel chocolate perfection.

    180. PUNKY’S.

      Comment by laurie on 10/26/07 at 6:43 pm #
    181. I’d really like to try dark chocolate sixlets- they might be my idea of the perfect LE candy!

      And this isn’t a candy (unless you consider soda liquid candy) but I really hate that the Mountain Dew Pitch Black was a limited edition.. it was around for Halloween one year, returned the following Halloween with a “sour bite” and it’s a good thing I bought three cases then because it never returned.. so sad! Best soda ever.

      Comment by J on 10/26/07 at 6:49 pm #
    182. My favorite limited edition was definitely those raspberry and creme bars hershey had before. I’m a sucker for white chocolate and fruit flavors and heck, I loved that bar.

      No idea if they still make it, but I do know I haven’t seen it at all since I moved to New York.

      Those candy corn hershey kisses look awesome!

      Comment by Alejandra Garcia on 10/26/07 at 7:24 pm #
    183. Not sure if this counts as limited edition, since it’s seasonal, but I love those Ghirardelli peppermint bark chocolate bars.

      I’m really looking forward to the java twix, though.

      Comment by Sara on 10/26/07 at 8:10 pm #
    184. I’m quite fond of the 100 Grand Dark.

      Comment by Alex on 10/26/07 at 8:27 pm #
    185. Milk Way Darks are a fave-I’m glad I can find them year round. Not sure if it counts since it’s seasonal but Cadbury eggs are a fave. Also, when I see those little Debbie Christmas tree snack cakes for the first time i have to buy a box smile

      Comment by Bj on 10/26/07 at 9:05 pm #
    186. I forget the name, but it was a raspberry-flavoured Coffee Crisp.

    187. The Twix Java definitely! You can’t beat chocolate and coffee together.

    193. I miss the limited edition coffee hershey kisses. They rocked my world : (

      Comment by Kelly on 10/27/07 at 5:32 am #
    194. I think it would be cool to have a black and white reece’s peanut butter cup. It would be half white chocolate and half milk chocolate with creamy peanut butter in the middle.

      Comment by David on 10/27/07 at 5:34 am #
    195. My ideal limited edition candy would be White chocolate Snickers.

      Comment by Danny on 10/27/07 at 6:03 am #
    196. My favorite limited edition candy was the pina colada almond joy.  It seems completely natural to me to add pinapple to something already containing coconut, and was suprised it wasn’t thought of earlier.

      (something for the future: thinly chocolate-covered red swedish fish.  Chocolate and gummy makes lovely love).

      Comment by Amber on 10/27/07 at 6:14 am #
    197. One of my favorite limited edition candies was dark chocolate Nestle Crunch. I am still desperate to get my hands on a MOCHA Crunch which I think I’d like even better…

      Generally, dark chocolate versions of any candy will get me excited.

      Comment by Skye on 10/27/07 at 8:08 am #
    198. Both Twix Java and 100 Grand Dark sound delicious to me-never got the chance to try either, but would love to! We’ve always been big fans of 100 Grand in my house. Also, I was wondering if you ever heard of something called Hersheyettes (not sure of the spelling) They’re sort of like the Canadaian Smarties but rounder in shape and the shell coating isn’t as thick. The only place my husband ever saw them was years and years ago at the Hershey Factory. I’ve done searches but haven’t found anything??!!

      Comment by Alana on 10/27/07 at 8:49 am #
    199. I’m really looking forward to trying the Dark Chocolate Mint 3 Musketeers.

    200. I have NOT bought one yet (resist - resist!) - but just saw the Reeses Peanut Butter pumpkin (?) with DOUBLE the PB!  Also, loved the mocha kit kats…
