Favorite Halloween Candy – Butterfingers Rock!
My favorite candy to receive from my trick-or-treating adventures was a Butterfinger 🙂 I loved the salty, crispy butter flavored chocolate crunch on a cold Halloween night sitting with my friends counting our booty. Butterfingers were invented in Chicago by a German chocolatier named Otto Schnering who then sold the company to Nestle. THANKS OTTO!
Trick-or-treating started in the British Isles sometime during the Middle Ages as mumming or going from house-to-house at Christmas or at other holidays. Mummers would offer a song or a speech and receive something in return such as food, drink or a Butterfinger! So happy mumming everyone! Hope you get your favorite treat this year – do you have a favorite?
