Discover the Very Best Halloween Candy and Avoid the Duds

Halloween is that spooky time of year with mom cooking homemade apple pies, Dad raking up the leaves in the yard, and we should also point out the incredible decorations. Watching a whole street transform into a set straight from a scary film: witches, vampires, ghosts, and zombies. Kids doing some terrific pumpkin carving was also a highlight!

Want to Make a Treat at Home? Here Are Some of Our Favorite Halloween Recipes

It really does seem like these sweeties have been around forever. These pleasant pillow-like treats are a Halloween classic. Open up a pack and enjoy the soft outer layer and sticky center. What's more, you can do so many things with them. You can even break out your cooking skills. Melt marshmallows into a bowl of caramel and butter, then mix with Rice Krispies to give you delicious Rice Krispie squares. Who could resist?

Another interesting trend is to take advantage of their white color and wobbly form and to add eyes to them, so grab a bag and make yourself a collection of mini ghosts. Plus, get cooking and make s'mores around a campfire. So you see, this versatile candy is perfect for the holiday season, whatever you do with it!

A Wonderful, Yet Spooky Time of Year

Trick or Treat Yourself T-Shirt

Weeks spent in advance deciding what you wanted to be: a police officer, mummy, skeleton, witch – the list was endless and seemed to change with each passing day, especially if there was a new superhero movie in the theaters. Trick-or-Treat was the highlight of the night, and working out your strategy to get the most Halloween candy in your bag was nothing short of a military operation. Snickers, Candy Corn, Smarties, Mars, and all the treats you could imagine are there for the taking! Making sure you have a big enough bucket, cauldron, hell – just go with a trash bag and let the good times roll!

Costumes and Sweet Pleasures

Sadly, you'll have to wait until next year to get your scare on!

So, whether it's Reese's peanut butter cups, Mars, or Sour Patch Kids, we’re going to be diving into the world of Halloween and ranking a bunch of Halloween candy. And if you haven't got your Halloween outfit sorted, check out our exclusive collection of Halloween clothing.
