It’s early-October, and it’s never too soon to get ready for Halloween. Americans have a tough choice to make every year: stick with their established candy preferences or try new ones. On Oct. 31, we put up a list of some of the 30 greatest Halloween sweets to hand out to kids on Halloween. You might also want on the lookout for extra bags of these so you can save some for Nov. 1.
If you’re stumped on what sweets to get and don’t want to be the person handing out toothbrushes, have a peek at our selection of 30 of the greatest Halloween Sweets. We included some of the old standbys, such as Dum-Dum lollipops and M&Ms, as well as a few unexpected choices. The list will certainly assist you in avoiding being the one house on the block that distributes toothbrushes.
30. Almond Joy/Mounds
Almonds and Mounds bars are synonymous. Unless you know someone who adores coconut, few people go to great lengths to consume them.
29. Blow Pops
Blow Pops are kind of strange. Why not just buy bubble gum and skip the blow pop aspect? But if you want a lollipop, why don’t you want one with gum inside it?
28. Jolly Rancher
Jolly Ranchers taste like fruit, but they present a choking hazard.
27. Milk Duds
Milk Duds are the perfect sweet treat for pulling out a loose tooth. They will provide your jaw with the exercise it requires.
26. Milky Way
Everyone offers Milky Way squares on Halloween, but they’re not that great. They lack crunch and excitement.
25. Haribo Gummies
Haribo Gummies come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but their most popular candy are bears. However, people would love to find other fun shaped gummies like dinosaurs–but these aren’t always available or easy to find in smaller packs.
Skittles can provide the delicious sugar rush you require. They also have a chewable component that allows you to munch on something for a while.
Is there anything wrong with a slab of caramel and nuts affixed to it? Not at all. However, do not freeze it.
22. Junior Mints
Junior Mints are excellent, as long as you don’t consume them in an operating theater. You may also get full-size York Peppermint Patties if you want a bigger mint.
Dum-Dums are a perennial favorite, and it would be difficult to go through an entire Halloween night without them. Just make sure you get one with root beer flavoring.
20. Tootsie Pops
Tootsie Pops are also prevalent on Halloween for a good reason. They’re fantastic, especially the chocolate flavor. You get a chocolate Tootsie Roll after licking a chocolate lollipop.
19. Reese’s Pieces
Reese’s Pieces are decent, but they aren’t the same as genuine Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They’re also rather bland without chocolate.
18. Nestle Crunch
The crunch of Nestle Crunch bars adds flair to ordinary chocolate candy bars that they don’t have. It’s a tried-and-true option, but it isn’t particularly thrilling.
17. 100 Grand
Fortunately, the delicious and underappreciated 100 Grand does not cost $100,000. Why settle for a regular Crunch bar when you can have one with caramel inside?
The Twix bar is a caramel-based candy that incorporates cookies. If you get the peanut-butter variety, add 10 points to your score. It’s fascinating to try to eat the caramel or peanut butter first before eating the cookie.
15. Mr. Goodbar
Mr. Goodbar is high in almonds, making it an excellent source of additional nuts. It’s a shame that Hershey’s doesn’t sell whole bags of fun-size Mr. Goodbar pieces.
King of chewy fruit-flavored sweets are Starbursts. One square may keep you chewing for a long time, and they are quite tasty.
The Heath bar is a candy that tastes different than any other because of the toffee. It’s also more available during Halloween.
12. Tootsie Rolls
Tootsie Roll’s advertising slogan is “unforgettable,” and it has lived up to its name. Tootsie Roll also produces flavored Tootsie Rolls, but nothing compares to the original chocolate flavor.
M&M’s are a classic and delicious on their own. If you’re feeling more daring, stuff them in a cookie for a sugar rush explosion.
10. Flavored M&M’s
Besides the classic peanut and peanut butter flavors, there are now so many other M&M’s flavors to choose from. The other flavors are a fun way to surprise trick-or-treaters.
Twizzlers are the perfect Halloween candy. They’re delicious and taste like strawberries, plus they’re easy to eat on the go – something all great Halloween candy should be able to do!
I know some people might not be fans of Whoppers, but I personally love them because they taste like old-fashioned soda jerk drinks.
The classic chocolate bar, Milky Way, is soft and creamy– but what if it had peanuts for a crunch? Well, then you would have Snickers! And that’s why the celebrity-starring ads make sense.
Butterfingers are the perfect candy. They’re like peanut butter-flavored toffee shavings crammed into chocolate.
Another unavoidable candy of Halloween is the traditional KitKat, which comes in milk chocolate with sweet wafers. It’s made with milk chocolate and sugar wafers. There’s a reason it’s so popular all around the world.
4. Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Bar
Looking for a healthier alternative to sugary Halloween candy this year? Hershey’s Dark Chocolate is a great option. Not only does it taste delicious, but dark chocolate also has some health benefits. So next time you’re reaching for a treat, be sure to grab a few pieces of Hershey’s Dark Chocolate from the mix bag.
3. Hershey’s Chocolate Bar
The Hershey’s Chocolate Bar is a classic candy that you can always count on. Hershey’s has also introduced several delicious flavors, including Cookies & Cream, which add some unique flavor to the treats.
2. Candy Corn
Many rejoice at the sight of candy corn, while others loathe it with a passion. I will admit that it’s not something to be eaten year-round, but sometimes extra flavor can help improve the experience.
1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
As if consuming pure sugar wasn’t delightful enough, Hershey’s has now decided to add peanut butter and chocolate to the mix. I would recommend eating one of these heavenly treats in moderation, lest you overload your system with an excessive amount of sweetness.
