Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

It’s the day after Halloween.  Kids are waking up from their sugar coma, and parents are raiding their kids’ Halloween candy stash.  If you’re anything like me, you’ve already gone through your kids candy and grabbed some of your favorite candy.  It’s the price of parenting – what can I say?  With this in mind, today’s Stretched Ice Breaker is inspired by candy.  Today’s question is sure to tap into your sweet tooth.

Question:  What is your favorite candy bar?  (Or other type of candy?)

My Answer:  My answer changed a bit over the past two years.  I had to give up chocolate for the most part as a result of my migraine headaches.  Before this, I would have said Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  There’s nothing quite like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  But now, Reese’s go to my wife and kids.  I don’t eat a lot of candy anymore, but I still get hungry for something sweet from time to time.  Finding a candy bar without chocolate is next to impossible.  I like taffy, but I don’t like the painful sensation on my teeth when the taffy gets stuck on my gums right above my teeth.

One of the non-chocolate candies I really enjoy is Goetze’s Caramel Creams.  I know it’s not a candy bar, but it’s the closest thing for me.
