Found this article about what the treats you dispense tonight say about you. This is the pop-psychology behind your candy. Like astrology charts and the monthly horoscopes in Cosmo magazines, this is a loose guide that is likely preposterous bullshit. Enjoy.
If you give out-
3 Musketeers: Does well in groups but is somewhat pompous. Prone to fancy costumes and arcane weapons. Wears hats in public that are ill-advised.

Okay, now I found another that says what your favorite candy bar says about you. I wanted to apply them, so I assigned a favorite candy-bar to you guys at random. Tell me if I’m right. Maybe psychic abilities can develop late in life.
Aos, fish & Stevo – Snickers: A thoughtful person who carefully weighs each option before making decisions, you have your feet solidly grounded on earth. A natural problem solver, you provide help and support to others, even at the cost of your own desires. While analytical in the work-place, you have a strong aesthetic sensibility, and take delight in the beauty life has to offer. Sometimes stubborn and inflexible, you are nonetheless always willing to offer a helping hand.
Slothboy & RTD– Kit-Kat: Competitive and accomplished; no victory is sweet without a little hard work. You are competent and ambitious in both your professional and personal life. You sometimes suffer from tunnel vision, and can become too wrapped up in a specific pursuit, but you are generous with your time and money, never taking your blessings for granted.
Corina, Other David & Pamplemousse– Reeses Peanut Butter Cups: A rich, indulgent favorite, you tend to be a balanced mixture of charm and practicality. While gently engaging in social situations, you are more pragmatic and goal-oriented in your life views. You enjoy being catered to, and appreciate the finer things in life. You are very sensitive to minor slights and respond best to encouragement rather than criticism.
Ombudsben & Bibliomom– Rootbeer Barrels: A deceptively sophisticated choice, this is a lover of fine art, literature and history. You thrive in a more complex environment, and usually have the time to devote whenever friends or family needs you. You are a lover of travel, good wine, and great conversation. Some would tag you ‘absent-minded’, but yours is just a mind in concentration.
Robin, Lilli & ybonesy– Jelly Bellies: Vivid. Always able to see the humor in a situation, and willing to share what you love with those around you. You are known for your laugh. Emotionally expressive and idealistic, you set high goals for yourself, and push yourself to meet and exceed them. Your frequent highs are tempered with bouts of quiet melancholy and prolonged periods of solitude can make you gloomy. Your mood lifts immediately when someone makes you laugh.
Teaspoon & Jaynova– Milky Way: Health-conscious and compassionate, you are incredibly sensitive to other people’s pain. You tend toward perfectionism, and sometimes keep your own counsel in situations where it would be easier to share. You have an ingrained sense of responsibility to the environment, to your family and to others. When you let your hair down, you’re the life of the party.
Molo & David B.- Sixlets: You like to mix things up a little. You tend to challenge those around you, and your intensity can scare others off. You have a quick sense of humor and a willingness to listen to opposing points of view. You are an intensely private person, despite the outgoing, and sometimes aggressive facade.
Ed & Jules– M&M’s: You thrive in the life of the mind. Your wheels are always turning. You are easy-going, and sometimes completely unaware of your surroundings. Life is always a new discovery, and you extend honest interest to every new person you meet. You enjoy sharing your thoughts, and even when others try to provoke you to anger, you are rarely offended. There are too many amazing things in life to discover to let other people bring you down.
