The Best Halloween Candies

A writer at Thrillist weighed in with his opinion for the 25 best Halloween candies, and here they are.   Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, and while I’m 100% in agreement with his choice for #1,  Butterfinger, Payday and Heath have no business being on this list.   What about the bottom 25?  Those will be coming in the next post, and I’m very upset that one of my favorites is on it.   Maybe I’ll do my own damn list.

Oh and by the way, where I work they’ve got a whole section of “healthy” Halloween snacks this year.   I don’t trick or treat any more, but if you’re giving out cauliflower snacks or chia crisps, I’m pretty sure your house is going to be egged, and I doubt they’ll be organic eggs.  Stick with the candy.


   Halloween candy comes in all shapes and sizes, from new takes on old-school favorites to wax lips and, if your neighbors are sadists, pennies. But when grown adults dressed as dancing hot dogs reminisce about their trick-or-treat outings of yore, they’re likely getting wistful for one of these 25 hall-of-fame Halloween candies, which we’ve ranked from great to greatest.
