I absolutely love these little candies. If you love peanut butter, you should definitely try these. They are soft, chewy, and full of peanut butter flavor. I will warn you that they will get stuck in your teeth which is why I prefer to pull off a piece and eat it that way instead of sticking the whole thing in my mouth at once. I highly recommend these.
My all time favorite fall treat! The yummy peanut butter core meshes perfectly with the taffy creating an ooey gooey goodness in your mouth. I love how easy to find and affordable Mary Janes are. Old fashioned candies are the best kind of candies!
Growing up, all the kids dreaded the orange and black wrappers. But not me. I'm a HUGE peanut butter fan and loved when other kids wanted to trade their candies the day after Halloween. Peanut butter taffy is a thing and it's great!
Yummy, yummy, yummy. Not too sweet. Peanut butter and molasses flavor. Very sticky. Have to chew it for a while. I buy at grocery and some convenient stores. Very affordable. Have to be patient when eating it.
These are OLD SCHOOL! They remind me of my childhood I always want one, however I am always very disappointed with the taste. :-(
These are my all time favorite Halloween candies. I hardly ever share. I eat them year round lol! #HalloweenFaves can't have just one! And they're so cheap! Go grab a few bags!
These are my favorite candies of all times. I love when halloween comes because you can buy them everywhere and my kids get a bunch when we go trick or treating!
These are my mom's favorite candies. I like them a lot, but they are so chewy and it takes so long to get this out of your teeth once you're done. But the struggle is worth it, because these are some freaking delicious treats. Only downside is that I always have a hard time finding them in the big containers
These are such a unique and delicious candy. My dad actually got me to try these. They're not too sweet and just chewy enough! I've gotten a few friends hooked also! They're a more old fashioned candy but still easy to find.
