Whether you're planning on hitting up all the houses on your block this Halloween or waiting until Nov. 1 to snag all the day-after-Halloween sales, candy and your diet are now synonymous. When it comes to the favorite, Reese's Cups may be the reigning champ, but everyone has their preference. From the silky caramel in the Milky Way and the Twix to the elusive crunch of the 100 Grand and the Kit Kat—from the contrast of Sour Patch Kids to the fluff of the 3 Musketeers—each of these illustrious treats have stood the test of time. Which Halloween candy is the best?
We know we aren’t the only ones who look forward to the Reese’s spooky-yet-simple Halloween commercials every year. And that pumpkin-shaped Reese’s? A game-changer. Meanwhile, Kit Kats provide the perfect “break” to a long evening of trick-or-treating. Fun-sized, full-sized, or king-sized, Kit Kats are the candy bar that keeps on giving.
Here’s the issue: the Twix is the perfect marriage of textures, while the Snickers is the perfect marriage of flavor. Twix bars feature a shortbread-like cookie that would make even the “Great British Baking Show” judges drop their tea. On top of the shortbread base is a generous bed of caramel, all of which is enveloped in silky milk chocolate. The Snickers, on the other hand, features caramel, peanuts, and nougat all enrobed in chocolate. The Twix has the crunch working for it, while the Snickers has the salty-sweet effect to keep people coming back.
