Catching a movie in my pre-teens was an incredible experience.  The smell of horrible two-day-old popcorn at the Sangertown Mall, the crunchy disgusting carpets…and the candy.  Oh the candy.

I preferred to forgo the traditional box of candy and went for the wall of sugar.  You remember those gargantuan plexi-glass shelves containing your darkest desires.  You could grab a plastic bag and fill with anything on that wall, and most of the time creativity would get the best of you.  Ever tried eating Swedish Fish and Snow Caps in the same bite?  AWFUL.  When feeling less adventurous, I created a potent mixture of Sour Patch Kids and my personal favorite, Reese’s Pieces.  Those fucking things are good!  So much peanut buttery goodness in a tiny candied shell…

Where were we?  Oh yes, the Would You Rather portion of this post.

Option #1: You can never eat Reese’s Pieces ever again.

Never again.  Mind you, Reese’s Peanut Butter cups are fair game but they are an entire different species of candy.  All other peanut butter/chocolate Charlie Brown-style sweets are cool, however the knock-off Reese’s Pieces cannot be consumed.  You can still eat your glorious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cereal at all hours every day as part of your balanced breakfast!

Option #2: You can never eat Peanut M&M’s ever again.

All other M&M’s are fair play besides the peanut butter M&M’s.  No more handfuls of delicious chocolate and peanut crunch that will trick you into thinking you could be eating worse: “Hey, I’m getting my protein!  There’s nuts in these durn chocolates!”  Also, no longer will you be able to go for the perfect bite, where your remove the chocolate exoskeleton whilst keeping the peanut intact.  All of this will be gone from your life, friends.  I trust you will make the right decision.

    Interestingly, although I feel like I prefer Reese’s Pieces, I almost never have them, so I elected to keep the peanut M&Ms.

    Oh, wait, nevermind. That wasn’t interesting.

    Reese’s just can’t deliver the extra crunch of the peanut. Sorry – it’s M&M’s

    i chose the reeses because there are plenty of other kinds of m&m’s- almond, peanut butter, etc.- but only one reeses pieces

    Reese’s Pieces were one of my favorites as a kid, but once I glanced at the nutrition info I could never enjoy them as much. I know they are candy, but they are probably some of the most fattening. So I gave them up a while ago. I’d have to stick with peanut M&Ms.
