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 ;)

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. :)

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.

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.

Yes! Cadbury eggs, candy canes, cinnamon hearts and conversation hearts. Not for the kids, but mainly for me :)

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!

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.

HoneyBrown, I completely concur! When you have kids, you have candy, it's a no-brainer!

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.

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.

Usually no, I don't really buy candy at all. Although I have been known to crave a Cadbury egg...mmm....
