I have a particular strategy when I eat certain candies. I realized a few nights ago that I hadn't had Skittles in about half a year, so I ordered a bag along with my grocery order. When I eat Skittles, I always eat all of the grape ones first, because they're significantly less pleasant than the other flavors, and I don't want that taste to be the last one in my mouth. Then, I grab two or three at a time, all different flavors, and eat them that way. This is different from how I eat M&Ms and Reese's Pieces. For those candies, I first start eating normally. When the first two-thirds are done, I begin to eat the colors and flavors that are most prevalent, until I eventually have an equal number of each type. Sometimes I lay them out on a table or piece of paper to see how many of each kind are left. I don't always even realize that I'm doing it until I already have them lined up in rows. Then, I eat the rest in handfuls consisting of one of each flavor.
