The Pecan Truffles (lower left in photo) are winning so far, though Paul Constant says they taste too much like white chocolate

Can I come over? I'm cute! (and a little smart)

As a type 1 diabetic, I generally avoid candy, but I tasted some anyway in the name of journalism. The chocolates on the left were full of excessively sweet raspberry creme, which caused me to immediately seek a trash can. The white chocolate pecan thing on the right, however, was ABSOLUTELY FUCKING DELICIOUS and so worth the insulin.

I generally like See's, and so I enjoyed the Cranberry Orange Truffles (on the far left) because of their essential See's-ness. They're your average fruit-creme-filled bon bon style chocolate, but the mix of cranberry and orange is nice and surprising.

The pecan pie truffles (on the far right) didn't taste very pecan pie-like, but they were extremely sweet in a non-cloying way. Emily Nokes likes them A LOT more than I do.

The Orange Twists (the bag full of white-and-orange striped candy) are disgusting. It's like licking a bowl after all the ancient ribbon candy has finally been cleaned out of it.

I am eating one of the pumpkin spice lollipops right now and I like it okay, but I much prefer See's's caramel lollipop candy. It's all right.

But it must be said: Everything See's sent is way better than the candy we ate for the Halloween Candy Taste-Testâ„¢.

I think if you throw a handful of these hard enough towards Eastlake they may land directly in my mouth. I encourage you to give that a try, I will be waiting.

Sees is only about a half step ahead of Hersheys, which is to say that it is only slightly better than garbage.

Frans or Dilettante are more expensive, but a hundred times better.

Aaaand my kid hauled me to a classroom presentation on slave labor in chocolate today. As in, everything you're eating was produced by cute little Cote D'Ivoirian five year olds unless it has a fair trade label on it.

I had one of everything. It was grand. That pumpkin-looking chocolate thing wrapped in plastic in the middle is full of marshmallow (WIN) and both kinds of truffley things were yum. The Orange Twists that Paul didn't like are awfully chalk-textured. That foot is still gross. The bowl of orange things is still more gross. The office carb table lures us closer to death once again!

No new candy corn has been made since 1911.…

Few people actually eat candy corn. They just save it for next year and maybe repackage it before handing it off to somebody else.
