Alright Candy champions! You all worked really good together, and to make sure this candy battle emblem is put to good use, we'll grant the emblem to those we had host images for the candies list, helped find the emblems -and- you can participate in this activity up until 11:59pm PT today.

Name what kind of candy reminds you of yourselves, and tell us why? Is it because your sweet or sour? or just right?

Important note: Your off-topic forum posting activity will be checked into. So, be sure to note that if you aren't a poster here, you'll likely not receive the OT champions emblem for interacting in this post about OT's victory today!

I remind myself of a Zagnut. Why? Because it's somehow both crunchy and smooth. It's nutty, but well processed.

I am not among the candy-hosters?

This is an outrage :x

I thought this would be a much closer race. Either that, or SW would cream OT. Glad to see I was wrong.

You doubted us? :( Anyways, always loved 3 Musketeers. It is a chocolate-covered fluffy whipped chocolate bar and was whipped when I was younger so kinda represents my child hood. :P

You would have been too obvious! ;) Not everyone was selected for being super duper active. I had to throw in some curveballs.

Serious business is going on in here it seems. Either way I going with skittles before anybody else comes in and says so. Why you ask? Who doesn't like rainbows and by rainbows I mean rainbow da-.

M&M because I melt in your mouth and not in your hands? Too obvious? I'm curious how the well-informed overlords (and ladies) of the community knew that Caramello is my fave candy bar o_O
#8 Posted by parkurtommo (27655 posts) -

Hmm let's see...

I think... Anything sour...

I'm sorry, I'll just have to go with dark chocolate :P

Because I'm tasty, and a deep fellow 8)

:p

#9 Posted by PiscesChick93 (10713 posts) -

Well done guys!! :)

My suggestion for xaos was too late :(

I knew OT would do well!

Anywho, I would say skittles, because they are bright and full of happy colours, and I'm a happy person! :)

#12 Posted by vguy555 (4625 posts) -

I guess Sour Patch Kids, I really like their slogan...first they're sour, then they're sweet, I can relate that to myself. :P

Yep, OT won the scavenger hunt. I think many of you follow each other's profiles to figure it out? I did throw a variety of curveballs to both forums though (making sure some people didn't have that many followers for both sides).

#16 Posted by MistressMinako (45922 posts) -
Do I get the candy in my profile sent to me for free? :o I will love you guys forever. And how did you guys know to put Sour Patch there?! Reading into my post history I see!
#17 Posted by KiIIyou (27154 posts) -
Sour Punch Straws on account of we both fall down the stairs the same way, unless it's one of those stale ones that I keep managing to buy instead, those ones are pretty stiff but I spose we'd be similar if I was dead.
#18 Posted by Teenaged (31748 posts) -

It doesnt remind me of myself but I'll pick this:

I havent had it in ages.

I love that candy as well and I hate the stale ones omg I try to feel the package for a bit before buying.

They matched candy to user? Uh.....that means I'm a lover not a fighter...right?:o

If ones stale I just assume the rest are also and I don't want zero Straws so I settle with the stales.

I'm sort of like a Kit-Kat bar, since everyone tries to break off a piece of me. :cool:

When I was little my mom would make me sing the jingle to the checkout girls at the grocery store. Occasionally they'd give me one for free if they thought I was cute. :P

So you're saying that you prostituted yourself for candy? Shameless

Well, maybe I would if that was the last one but if there are many behind the one I picked up then I am going to keep searching.

Well, I do like Snickers, but I'm more like Twix, because I always need a moment :P

I don't mean to try to demean your victory or say you don't deserve this win, but over in SW, we found candy in profiles that literally made us go, "Who the hell is this" and "This guy hasn't been a regular in years".

Some of the people here aren't that well known either.
#33 Posted by arad96 (7727 posts) -

Ahh, I missed the activity. If only school was canceled for halloween. :x

Anyway, yay OT!

I am like a starburst. I am a juicy contradiction. I can also be sweet or sour! :o

But these are guys who people couldn't remember seeing post in months, even years. And let me put this in perspective. While all those relative unknowns got candy, Willy105 did not. That would be like you or Xaos not getting candy. He doens't compare in posting volume, but his name is ALWAYS in the sticky threads because he always posts SWM, which is always stickied.

Apparently, but this is rather weak. I suppose some of these people might have had significant activity in one thread in the past 30 days, but Nerd_man got one and everybody was like "That guy is not even around."

They did a mix of known and unknown. I checked the profiles of lots of known OT users and very few of them had candy. It wasn't one sided...

yeah, quite a few prolific OTers didnt have it, was kind of surprised.

#43 Posted by Legolas_Katarn (15555 posts) -
Wow, that ended fast. Was looking for it to start in the morning took a break to play some Batman and its over when I get back. What candy? I guess I'll go with a Kit Kat bar. Lately everyone wants to borrow money from me, all trying to break off a piece.
#44 Posted by Allicrombie (25514 posts) -
I'm gonna go with skittles. I wear lots of pretty colors and am fruity? >.>

Ronald Reagan has been asking me for some of the candy you posted on my profile. Twas his favorite.
