    Goo Goo Clusters! They are made in Nashville and mostly just available down south however Walmart seem to carry them. I would equate them to Turtles. From their website:


    In 1912, Howell Campbell, founder of Standard Candy Company, had a dilemma. He had just invented America's first "combination candy bar" - a delicious concoction of caramel, marshmallow and fresh roasted peanuts, hand coated with rich milk chocolate in an unusual round shape - and he didn't know what to call it. A friend suggested the name Goo GooŽ as it described the rich, chewy consistency of the candy bar and because "It's so good, people will ask for it from birth." Today, the great taste, unique shape and name Goo GooŽ Cluster, Goo GooŽ Supreme and Goo GooŽ Peanut Butter are an American Tradition and Howell Campbell's dilemma is your delight. Enjoy!

    Here is what they look like:

    Hershey Kisses are my favorite candy, followed by Reeces PB cups and 3 musketeers. I also love Cadbury cream eggs, but I can't eat more than one because they make me feel sick. Nerds are really good too. I will eat any type of sour candy but I really like sour gummy worms and sour patch kids and sour belts!

    Wow, there are a lot of us here on Atkins. We should start a support group.

    My favourites are plain chocolate - Dairy Milk, Hershey, Purdy's...whatever, as long as it's not too dark and melts in my mouth.

    I'd kill for some chocolate right now.
    Men are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but you can't help but smile as you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I did the Atkins diet in jan and wound up in the hospital in april with a gall bladder reduced to only working at 9%. rumor has it that if your gall bladder is going south the atkins diet will kick it in the grave fast.
