7/12 That would be fun to figure out your candy type. I like Reese's, sweet exterior...savory & nutty on the inside.

6/12=half...so I'm gonna bite into 1/2 the chocolates in that box just 'to see' what's inside.

💝Here's a quiz idea for our MeTV quiz writer friends: "What Kind of Valentine Candy Are You?" 🍫🍬💝
I'll say I'm a Fannie May "Turtle"----mostly sweet & a lil nutty & salty & (wait for it...) a softy on the inside 😄😄😄💝
