"Tuesday's Ten" - Candy & Saints (2 Lists)

In honor of Trick or Treat last night & All Saints' Day today, this issue of "Tuesday's Ten" includes two lists...some of my favorite candy & saints! But first, let me introduce you to St. Bernadette, the Angry Red Bird, the Angry Blue Birds, & the King Pig!

My Ten Favorite Types of Candy
(No particular order, except for Reese's PB Cups being my ultimate favorite!)

1) Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (original...please don't mess w/ a good thing! Even bigger was not better because it offset the balance of chocolate & peanut butter!)
2) Kit Kats (same here, don't go changing them up...keep the original)
3) Snickers
4) Zero Bars
5) Gummy Bears
6) Mary Jane's Peanut Butter Kisses (you know, those taffy-like peanut butter candies wrapped in orange & black wrappers?)
7) Twix
8) Crunch
9) Whoppers (I prefer to let them melt away in my mouth.)
10) Whatchamacallit

Ten of my Favorite Saints
There are SO many to choose from & this list is in no way complete!
(in no particular order)

1) St. Gianna Beretta Molla (Even when faced w/ a life threatening tumor, she refused to have surgery because it would kill her unborn child.)
2) St. Maria Goretti (I was given a relic of hers several years ago.)
3) St. Catherine of Siena (My confirmation saint)
4) St. Therese of Lisieux
5) St. Dymphna (With all of The Archangel's issues, I've recently discovered this saint of mental illnesses & disorders, adding prayers for her intercession for our family.)
6) St. Francis of Assisi
7) St. Bernadette (Even a young peasant girl can do great things!)
8) St. Cecilia (I wish I had known of her when I was a music student in college...although, she may not have been able to handle the amount of prayers I would have sent her way!)
9) St. Anthony (Lost something? Ask for his intercession!)
10) St. Faustina Kowalska (She brought us, w/ our Lord's help, the Divine Mercy devotion.)

Who are some of YOUR favorite saints?

I actually did like the Big Kat bars that Kit Kats came out with...and my favorite peanut butter cups are the eggs at Easter. But I agree with your list for the most part. Except Mary Janes yuck! But that's just me :).
And I love your lists of saints.
BTW...I think I will do this with you today...two great lists!

You just made me crave some chocolate!! LOL! I have to say that the Easter PB Eggs and the PB Christmas Trees outrank the regular Reese's cups...at least in my opinion!!

Great job on the costumes by the way. I'm hoping to get mine up sometime today! LOL!

Okay you two...I will admit that the Christmas & Easter Reese's are good too. I was thinking more of the white chocolate, caramel, etc. Reese's.
