Best Halloween Candy

I've searched high and low and consulted all the bright minds (and some not so bright) across the country to determine the Best Halloween Candy.  Naturally, I've done a fair bit of tasting and sampling too.  It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it.

Here are my Top Ten Halloween Candy pics:

10) Sweet tarts
9) Candy corn
8) Red licorice
7) Caramel bites
6) Three Musketeers
5) Lindt chocolates
4) Snickers
3) M&Ms
2) Nestles
1) Kit-Kat

Kudos to anyone who passes out the full-size chocolate bars too! No doubt your home will be mobbed this evening. ;)

Boo! Happy Halloween!

Ah, sometimes I miss those days when I was a kid all dressed up asking for candy. Good times. My favorite used to be the chocolate treats like m&m's, kit-kats, snickers, ect.

I kind of wish I hadn't read this post as now I'm dying for candy LOL. I love all of your choices, especially 3 Musketeers and Kit-Kats. Happy Halloween to you!

ahh... I've been warned we'll be mobbed tonight in our new location. But I'm all packed with Lemonheads, etc. No mention of Lemonheads??? I lurv them. But Kit-kats are awesome, too. :D Happy Halloween, Liz!

I'll take M&Ms and Lindts.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

We haven't had trick-or-treaters in years. And I'll take anything with chocolate and peanut butter!

I'm glad you included candy corn. I like it a lot but many don't. No Reese's peanut butter cups? That and Snickers would be my #1 pick.

Sarah Pearson said...

I haven't heard of most of them but I'm with Alex, the chocolate and peanut butter combo wins every time :-)

What about Rockets? I used to love those things. Red Twizzlers rock, too.

Ohh, cotton candies? Love 'em!
Just remembered I hiddedn two packs of KitKats after shopping last week!

LD Masterson said...

Reese's mini's and Almond Joy. (sometimes you feel like a nut...)

Tracy Jo said...

Mmmmm! I had a lot of those in my bowl to hand out....but my all time favorite is the 100 Grand Bar. I am pretty sure I ate all of them before the kids got here. :-) Happy Halloween!!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Well, Liz,

All of my favorites are that list....

I hope you have a fun Halloween...

Happy Halloween!

Good haul this year, I hope? I like those Lindt chocolates, and Kit Kats of course. ;)

Liz Fichera said...

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween. I'm still coming down from my sugar high. And the chocolate bowl is completely empty. *sigh*

Carol Riggs said...

Candy corn is fun and good to be on the list just because it's so colorful--it's not like it has much flavor! Personally, I like Reeses's pb cups, along with Mounds or Almond Joys. Yummers!

Robert Guthrie said...

I celebrate the full meal of a Snickers.

Madeleine said...

Such treats! I've never had red liquorice and never heard of Three Muskateers sweets. I love Snickers (Marathons) and Thorntons and dark chocolate too.

Danette said...

I love Snickers quite a lot and would never turn away a KitKat or Twix and sometimes I simply crave Candy Corn. For Valentines I simply love SweetTart hearts (love them anytime actually) but nothing, absolutely nothing says Halloween to me like a Three Musketeers!

btw: my son went trick or treating by himself as a last resort and found out that when you go by yourself you get tons of the best candy and you get the regular size bars from some. He figures people feel sorry for you. :)
