We Ranked Every Halloween Candy So You Don't Have To

Posted -

Easily one of the best parts of childhood was trick-or-treating –– don’t even lie, collegiettes, you miss it too. Few things were better than getting home, dumping your sac of candy on the floor and sorting through it (a.k.a. eating more than half of it right then and there).

No matter how old we get, one thing is for sure: we will never stop indulging in some sweet treats on Halloween. While there are all kinds of candies that bless us with their presence around this time, we ranked our 15 all-time favorites. Here’s what we decided:

15. Tootsie Rolls

There isn't much to say here. *Snoooooore*

14. Candy Corn

PSA to anyone claiming they don't like candy corn: You can't fool us. Stop lying. Seriously, we know you're lying...

13. Nerds

Because we've all poured a full box of these colorful blocks down our throat at some point or another. 

12. M&Ms  

Let's face it –– we'll never get rid of these little, addictive pieces of chocolate. Who says that's a bad thing?

11. Butterfingers/3 Musketeers/Milky Way/Snickers (Or any assortment of mini-sized treats)

You're so basic, but we love you all the same.

10. Twizzlers

Are we going to shove these down our throat in one bite? Are we going to whip you with it? You will never know. 

9. Crunch Bars

This old-school favorite has perfected the chocolate-to-crispie ratio, and we'll probably never get over it.

8. Starbursts

Nothing is more exciting than opening your two-pack of these bad boys. WTF, did we seriously get two yellow???

7. Hershey Bars

What can we say? They're the classic.

6. Twix Bars

Need we say more? These are basically Halloween royalty. 

5. Airheads

There is no limit on how many of these we can eat in one sitting.

4. Sour Patch Kids/Swedish Fish

No explanation needed –– we're all addicted to both.

3. Skittles

We'll probably be tasting the rainbow until the day we die, and we're very happy about it!

2. Halloween Orange Kit Kats

There is an odd satisfaction that comes with snapping apart two Kit Kat bars –– oh my god, are they orange?!

1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins

REESE'S ARE THE BEST, MOST VERSATILE CANDY EVER TO EXIST AND NOTHING ANYONE SAYS WILL CHANGE THAT. EVER. POINT BLANK. PERIOD. Ugh, Halloween truly is the sh*t–– can we go back to elementary school?
