Spooktober – Day 5: Let’s Talk Halloween Candy

I read an article this week about the best and the worst Halloween candy. Which made me just want to talk about, you guessed it- Halloween candy. I wanted to talk about my absolute favorites and the supposed worst candy from the list above.

I love my sweet snacks, particularly chocolate. I, of course also enjoy the salter snacks ever now and again, but I love me some chocolate. I can pretty much love all the chocolate bars/candy there is. However, we’re just talking about my absolute favorites which are probably not what you would typically expect.

My Favorites

  • 3 Musketeers
  • The Crunch Bar
  • Snickers
  • Milky Way
  • Airheads
  • Jolly Ranchers
  • Skittles

I know, I have a bit of a odd taste. I also have some hot takes when it comes to Halloween candy and it goes like this.

Hot Takes

  • KitKats and Twix are both overrated.
  • The peanut M&Ms are bad.
  • Twizzlers are also bad.
  • Whoppers are gross.
  • This may be because I don’t like coconut, but Almond Joy is also pretty bad.

Moving onto my opinions about the candy on the list from the link above.

The Worst

  • Bit-O-Honey – Never had them.
  • Good & Plenty – Never had them.
  • Licorice – Terrible especially black licorice, definitely belongs on the worst list.
  • Smarties – Hey! I like Smarties, they aren’t on the top of my list, but I like them.
  • Tootsie Rolls – I like these as well, but I hate how they get stuck in my teeth, so I don’t eat them very often.
  • Necco Wafers – Never had them.
  • Wax Coke Bottles – Never had them, but this sounds really gross.
  • Peanut Butter Kisses – Never had, at least I don’t think I have…
  • Circus Peanuts – I don’t like peanuts so…
  • Candy Corn – Agreed, they are by far the worst candy.

The Best

  • Hershey Bar – It’s a classic.
  • Skittles – It’s definitely one of my favorites, glad we can all agree that these are great.
  • Sour Patch Kids – Believe it or not, I have never ate these…I don’t know how that’s possible either.
  • Butterfinger – They’re fine, I guess. Nothing special to me.
  • Nerds – Love Nerds, but I have to have a handful in order to enjoy them.
  • M&Ms – Peanuts (No.), regular (Yes!)
  • KitKat – Overrated.
  • Twix – Overrated.
  • Snickers – Love them, even with all the peanuts.
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Another classic, I don’t love peanut butter, but I will make an expectation for this snack.

I’m curious, what’s your guy’s favorite candy and least favorite? I’m sure our opinions may differ.

  1. Skittles are my favorite candy. I just wish they’d go back to making the green ones lime flavored. When they switched it to green apple, I feel like that’s when Western Civilization started taking a more negative turn…
