Rancher'sGirl 6 years I send "bunny bags" and "bunny boxes" to my nieces and nephews at Easter with small packages of candy, but otherwise I generally buy it the day after on clearance for chopping up to put in cookies. I also buy the special October Breast Cancer Awareness packages of M&Ms, especially for my niece who adores the color pink. :) Oh, and yes, I do buy Peeps on clearance for exploding in the microwave...the scrubbing involved in the clean-up is a great stress reliever! LOL ;) iridescence 6 years I'm really not a fan of the candies at checkouts, but I almost always buy V-Day M&Ms because they're just so darn pretty. :) ilanac13 6 years i do sometimes, but to be honest, it's not because i seek it out, it's because that's all that a store has. i had to get valentine's peanut m&m's the other day since that's all they had. RoaringSilence 6 years I live in Germany, and Lindt for example makes some delicious chocolate specialties that you can only get around Christmas, so of course I buy them then :) they wouldn't be special if you could buy them all year. As for M&Ms, where only the color is different from the regular ones.. I only buy them if I decorate seasonal cupcakes with them, or if I had planned on buying them anyway. sofi 6 years Yes! Cadbury eggs, candy canes, cinnamon hearts and conversation hearts. Not for the kids, but mainly for me :) emalove 6 years No...I'm not a candy person really. The only time of year I buy it is at Halloween and it's to give out to the kids! Spectra 6 years Only AFTER said holiday is over...I buy the 50% off Halloween candy, Christmas candy, V-day candy, etc. the day after the holiday so I can get a good deal. I don't really eat much of it, but my husband loves it. GlowingMoon 6 years Generally, no. doogirl 6 years HoneyBrown, I completely concur! When you have kids, you have candy, it's a no-brainer! mswender 6 years I had Steeler M&M's at my super bowl party? Does that count? HoneyBrown1976 6 years I have kids. There's no way to avoid the issue, lol. floppyfish1986 6 years I buy it all on clearance...since I work at Target I get it extra cheap! sonya-ina 6 years Sometimes -- mostly Christmas and Halloween. partysugar 6 years I always buy seasonal candy. When I was in collage my friends said going to my house was like going to a grandma's house because of the themed candy bowls. tlsgirl 6 years Just the mint chocolate christmas M&M's. skigurl 6 years cinnamon hearts baby! PartySister 6 years My mom buys it for me all the time! I love colored m&m's and candy canes at christmas. but they are kind of my weakness. keep them away from me! aimeeb 6 years Yep!! I love it. :) mamasitamalita 6 years I LOVE conversation hearts and Cadbury eggs :) mlen 6 years the only seasonal candy i really like is the reese's peanut butter eggs at easter (they are better than the cups!) other then that i don't really care LaLaLaurie06 6 years If I do purchase, it'll usually be for me to give to someone else. I try not to buy anything for myself (except for Cadbury Cream Eggs around Easter) and usually other people like my mom send me all the themed candy I could want. brookberrys 6 years Usually no, I don't really buy candy at all. Although I have been known to crave a Cadbury egg...mmm.... starangel82 6 years Depends on my mood, but I usually wait until it's on clearance! pharm_chick 6 years only wen it goes on clearance the next day at my store... haha nylorac 6 years that reminds me--i need to get v-day holiday candy!
