Ricci will eat darn near anything. If it comes in a wrapper she'll eat it. Peppermints, skittles, cinnamon candy, etc etc.
Gracie, my 9 month old, doesn't like ANYTHING that isn't meant for horses. At least nothing that I've found. She spits peppermints out, she doesn't go nuts for carrots or apples but she'll eat them. To be mean, I gave her a cinnamon candy and she got so mad, haha. At least she's willing to try anything, right?
I once shared a bean burrito with a horse. =]
I also knew a horse that was CRAZY about smarties.
I never worry about the sugar or anything like that in the candy I give, because they only get a piece maybe once every two months, usually just the candy they give you at restaurants. =]
As far as me eating horse food... everything that I've ever fed to any horse, ever, I've eaten. Alflalfa pellets, timothy pellets, the cushings-friendly pellets, oats, joint supplements, hoof supplements, sweet feed, senior feed, etc, etc. I've also tried all her treats, one of which I LOVE it's just too dry. I could put it in milk and have some cereal. =] I have licked a Lik-It, and a salt block [DISGUSTING!!!!].
I had too much fun replying to this one. Good topic. =]
