If this Falcons season were a type of candy, what kind of candy would it be? That’s a burning question that requires serious answers. We’ll bring you those answers on this week’s episode of ‘Thursday Night Kickoff’ on FOX 5 Atlanta.
Just kidding. The answers will not be serious. They’ll be fun. if you love fun and laughing and enjoying yourself, this is the show for you. If you love being grumpy about people having fun, you can sit this one out.
Here’s the whole segment:
We went with the candy question because of Halloween. Yes, Halloween is over, but I’ve still got way too much candy sitting around my house, so it’s still relevant.
I thought about going with a costume-related question, such as, “What would be the perfect Falcons-themed Halloween costume?” This guy would have won, hands down.
This family, much like the Falcons in that fateful game, would not have won. (Cute kids, though.)
Now it’s time to enjoy some of the great tweets we didn’t get to share on the air. (Some of y’all need to stop tweeting me hilarious things that would get me in trouble with the FCC.)
Fun Dip. You’re super excited at the beginning but shit gets messy quick.— Jenna Bannister (@JennaEarwood) October 31, 2018
Candy corn -technically candy but no one is thrilled to eat it— Ted Rutland (@theorutland) October 31, 2018
Warheads because it's got me making a lot of faces— never not spooky (@sportsbroad) October 31, 2018
Tootsie Pop: it’s not great now, but you know you’ve got something to look forward to, but it’s going to be equally disappointing, if not more— Ian York (@Ian__York) October 31, 2018

It looks good at first, then you get a taste and dear god you want to die.
Sour Patch Kids. Sour then sweet.— Tony Wilbert (@twilbert) October 31, 2018
Fruit Stripe - it looks awesome and fun on the outside, and is delicious for about three seconds, and it quickly devolves in to the blandest candy imaginable. pic.twitter.com/Nc4lk48rXB— Thornton (@ATKII) October 31, 2018
Jawbreaker because I'm not sure why I was interested in the first place and my teeth hurt— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) October 30, 2018
A Tootsie roll pop because we did the sucking part first— Steve (@SteveInBrooklyn) October 31, 2018
You walk up to the biggest, most expensive house in the neighborhood. The yard is decked out in Halloween glory. The place is screaming "full size candy bar". You ring the doorbell...— Jeff Johnson (@JeffJohnsonFI) October 30, 2018
it's a dentist. You get a toothbrush. And some raisins.
Whatever type of candy this is that’s sitting in your aunt’s candy dish that you’re a little reluctant to try. pic.twitter.com/wK5K2830Uz— Eric Robinson (@_Eric_Robinson) October 31, 2018
A box of chocolates because with each game, as Forrest Gump said, you never know what you're going to get.— WonderJaye (@WonderJaye) October 31, 2018
Reese's Fast Break. Your expectations are very high because of the Reese's name, but you're ultimately disappointed because instead of just peanut butter and chocolate, there are other less good ingredients that can't play defense.— Atl Sports Guy (@AtlSportsGuy2) October 31, 2018
Well it’s not Snickers because I ain’t damn satisfied— Chris Herold (@cjhero_912) October 31, 2018
