Halloween Candy Rated

As any six-yeard-old can confirm, all Halloween candy is not created equal. There are some thaat leave kids (and adults) excited to get back home and get started on binge-eating and achieving that all time sugar high, while others lay discarded at the bottom of the bag long after Christmas has come and gone. Here, I'll list my favorite Halloween candies, starting at number one with my least favorite, and working my way up to my personal favorite at number ten. 

  1. 1. Candy Corn 

    Not a favorite at all. Some love it, but any time I find it in my Halloween candy, I try to pawn it off onto a friend as quickly as possibly. This one doesn't even sit at the bottom of the bag, it just goes right to the trash as soon as possible. 

  2. 2. Laffy Taffy

    I'm a big chocolate fan, and while there are some non-chocolate candies that I would never trade away, this just isn't one of them. This is definitely one that keeps coming up to the top of my bag whenever I'm fishing through for literally anything else. It'll last until I get very desperate and have next to nothing left. 

  3. 3. Babe Ruths

    While I'm such a chocolate person, I can't even tell you what this one tastes like because I hardly ever eat them. Somehow, I always end up with a king-sized one anyways. 

  4. 4. Butterfingers

    Not my personal favorite, since I think the peanut butter brittle inside waaaaayyyyy overpowers the chocolate coating, but I'm still not completely unhappy if I see them. If anything, they're good for trading. 

  5. 5. Starburst

    Not my favorite, but I'm not disappointed when I come across a Starburst in my Halloween finds. If anything, the appeal goes up if they end up being the pink ones!

  6. 6. Peanut M&M's 

    I love M&M's, but I can get those from the vending machine all year round, which makes them less special during the Halloween season. Still, they're a classic, which qualifies them for a neutral middle spot. 

  7. 7. Sour Patch Kids

    This is one of those gummies that I will never trade away. Sour Path Kids are just the perfect gummies, with both the great sweet flavors and the sour powder on the outside. My favorites will forever be the blue raspberry ones, and I will eat them until my tongue is bright blue. Only downside is that the bags are way too small to satisfy my candy cravings. There's only like five gummies in there! A complete rip off. 

  8. 8. Twix

    Proabably one of my favorite candy combos ever is caramel and chocolate, so twix satisfies that perfectly. Not only does it have that, but it doesn't skimp on the caramel either. it's a good, solid caramel to chocolate ratio. The only thing that brings this one down to number eight is that, like the M&M's, I can get them all year round. 

  9. 9. Dark Chocolate Milky Ways

    There's just something about the dark chocolate Milky Ways that taste so much better than the regular ones, and at the same time, scream Halloween. These are almost always the first to go in my Halloween stash because they are just so impossible to resist. After all, they've got it all: the nougat, the caramel, and the dark chocolate all together in one bar. 

  10. 10. Pumpkin-Shaped Reese's

    I cannot tell you what it is about the shaped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but they just taste so much better than the regular ones! These Halloween-edition PB cups not only keep me in the spooky szn spirit, but it takes the classic, fan-favorite peanut butter chocolate combo to a whole new level. 

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween this year, and maybe this article got you thinking about which candies are worth snacking on and which should really just be tossed.
