Any specific brand ruin you for another version of the same candy?

A coworker offered me a butterscotch hard candy that is apparently very expensive and imported (blah blah) and I thought it was awful. The only butterscotch candy I will normally eat is Brach's butterscotch discs. They may not be the top of the line, but that is to what all else is measured. Sorta like after I discovered the "REAL" M&Ms not the cheap, generic buttons or Sixlets my grandma bought. I was done with her candy dish after that betrayal of trust.

Also, after having a Wilbur Bud I can't eat Hershey's kisses without gagging.

A few others:
- the good strawberry licorice with the panda on the bag, can't eat Twizzlers now
- Godiva hazelnut praline truffle, can't eat Rocher
- Russell Stover pectin jelly beans, no more Jelly Belly

I'm sure I'll think of 10 more, but that's a start. It's not always the most expensive brand, but I like what I like!
