The Top Five Best Halloween Candies

Rowan O'Flanagan, Staffer

It’s hard to go wrong with Halloween candy, but there are a few sweets which stand out above the rest. The candy varieties in the list below are five all-time favorites, sure to run out first from the candy basket. 

  1. M&M’s

Pop-able and in a pleasing array of colors, M&M’s are an essential part of Halloween. Although M&M’s are delicious on their own, you can also incorporate them into fun post-Halloween cookies.  

  1. Kit Kat 

A chocolate classic, Kit Kats blend sweet creamy chocolate with their telltale crunch. Kit Kats can be easily enjoyed on the go or split with a friend, making them as convenient as they are delicious. 

  1. Sour Patch Kids

A rare but lucky find, Sour Patch Kids start off with a powerful sour punch, before fading into sweetness. With multiple colors and flavors, Sour Patch Kids can easily be divided among friends, although the potential for friendship ending who-gets-which-color-disagreements is always present.  

  1. Twix

There’s something special about the first bite into a Twix bar. The chewy caramel and crunchy cookie provide a mouthwatering contrast, while the chocolate rounds out the whole experience.  

  1. Reese’s

You just can’t beat a Reese’s. Whether you go for the standard Reese’s cup or a fun pumpkin shaped Reese’s, you’re guaranteed an addictive combination of sweet chocolate and salty peanut butter. As an added bonus, you can almost convince yourself that the peanut butter equates to protein, basically making Reese’s a health food.
