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?
FiveThirtyEight found that most people prefer Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups over all other Halloween candies. How could you not love the classic peanut butter-chocolate combo? Meanwhile, Sour Patch Kids provide the perfect break from all of that Halloween chocolate.
The Twix bar is a love story made in romance-novel heaven. Smooth milk chocolate encases a crunchy wafer cookie and a bed of stretchy caramel, creating a beautiful marriage of textures. Meanwhile, Butterfingers can do no wrong. These textured, nougat-y beauties are like finding a golden ticket in your Halloween bag.
The Kit Kat is the candy bar that keeps on giving, providing essentially a two-for-one deal in each fun-sized package. But Starburst last longer than your typical Halloween haul, and that fruity burst of flavor is a much-needed palate cleanser.
You have two classics right here. The Snickers bar is everyone’s favorite caramel, peanut and chocolate combo, while the Hershey’s bar is milk chocolate in its purest form.
