- Milky Way
You can never go wrong with a Milky Way bar. The Milky Way is similar to the elite Three Musketeers bar, but with added caramel. It’s hard to beat that combination, which is what earns it a spot in the top five.
- Nestle’s Crunch Bar
Coming in at number four is the crispy and tasty Crunch bar. Those factors combine to make up the #4 best selling candy bar during the month of Halloween. When reaching into a “take one” bowl, Crunch bars are always one of the bars to grab.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Name me a better combination than chocolate and peanut butter… oh, you can’t? Me neither. This match made in heaven is absolute dynamite.
- Twix Bars
What is better, left or right twix? The answer is: they are exactly the same. Left twix is chocolate cascading over wafers. Right twix is chocolate poured over cookies. Sounds pretty similar to me. Still, phenomenal candy bar.
- Kit Kat
The cream of the crop. The best of the best. Kit Kat is the best and nothing else comes close. “Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.” Whoever said this should not be allowed to consider themselves human, because not even the most generous of people would share their prized Kit Kat bar.
100 Grand Bar
There are three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and a Twizzler being an awful Halloween candy. It’s a really low feeling when you see a red rope of sadness being dropped into your candy bag. With almost no taste and a consistency close to that of the sole of my shoe, Twizzlers are a no go for me.
- Hard Candy
When it is months after Halloween and your candy bag is almost empty, the only thing left will be an abundance of Jolly Ranchers, mints, and lollipops. Also, those random strawberry wrapped objects that always seem to find a way into my stash. Nobody knows what they are called, but they are disgusting.
- Healthy Alternatives to Candy
Halloween comes once a year, and I’m only saying that because apparently, some people are unaware. I should be allowed to fill up on chocolate and sugar for at least one day of the year. Don’t try to hand out sugar free candy or fruit bars, because I guarantee nobody in their right mind would want it.
It doesn’t matter how much sugar is in any kind of gum, the fact of the matter is: gum is not candy. It never will be candy. Although Sour Patch Kids gum is delicious, I would be offended if I received this as a handout on the 31st of October.
I’m actually curious whose terrible idea it was to start handing out bags of pretzels on Halloween. Giving out pretzels is insulting trick-or-treaters. You are better off being that house that doesn’t hand out anything.
