The candy that lasts way too long

So every year we get tons of candy to hand out to kids. And unless we run out, I noticed with what is left if there be some Milk Duds, they never get eaten. So I tried to figure out once more why I or no one else eat them. It's not cause they don't taste yummy. they do. I ate one of the 3 little morsels in the box. But, no more because, it took a good 5 minuts to chew up this tiny thing and another 5 minutes to pick, floss, and dig out of my teethe. Problem solved. Poor milk duds. the last few times I have bought them had to toss after they got hard over months. This bowl I had over flowing with candy and we have munched too much. have to get more but not milk duds. Do you like them?

I love Milk Dubs, but like you said, those things are so sticky and really hard to chew.

yes tastes good but took me a while to figure why they are the ones last to go.

I love Milk Duds and I remember being so happy if I got them in my trick or treat bag.

@bunnybon7 I would give them out to the 8+year olds. not the little kids because of how chewy they can be

No, never tried those Bun. Ones that always go down well here are the fruit gums as they are so easy to eat. Haribo sweets are always a favourite too.

I love Milk Duds! I guess though, they are kinda rich . . . a couple morsels and my sugar fix is fixed. I think there is a recipe for cookies out there that you put milk duds in - I haven't tried it yet, but I like the idea that you can use them for baking if they get a little stale.

never knew that. yes they are tasty but i try not to give them out as a little kid i would think might possibly choke cause they take so long to chew. but nice to know we can look up a recipe.

@bunnybon7 That's true - I can totally see how a little one could choke on a Milk Dud - I didn't even think of that!

I can't eat Milk Duds anymore because I have 3 crowns and considering what they cost me, I am not going to take a chance eating them.

The moment you described them, I realized that I often chucked out a similar type of candy. They were chewy, and always got toughen with time, like a block of iron or something.

@bunnybon7 Some melted and stuck to the bottom of one of our drawers here (the kids left their Halloween booty there!). I will have to clean that drawer one of these days. (I keep saying it, but never find the time to do it!)

That must be it they are very chewy! Which candy seems most popular by you for the trick or treaters?

@bunnybon7 Our neighborhood kids go for candy too. Twix, peanut butter cups, snickers and milky ways are very popular.

I guess you know not to buy milk duds anymore to hand out to the kids. Maybe you should try the rest to see if there is something with them also and not buy them either.

I love milk duds, but I let it melt so I don't have to pick my teeth, which are few in number at the moment. It does take longer to get it to melt though. So I can understand why milk duds are off the candy list now.

I think I cannot have some candies in a bowl. My little niece will munch it all. She is a candy monster.

Here we don't have milk duds, but we have chewable chocolates here. I used to have this chocolate when I was a kid. But now I don't like them.

Milk Duds are OK. My husband can eat them from time to time, but I try not to ever have them around. We bought candies one yr that took us forever to eat, so now we make sure and buy Candy we both like so it there is any left over, we can then split it.

But, the problem is that they cannot be puffed into regularly.
