The best candy is Hershey’s Cookies and Cream, hands down. The creaminess of the white chocolate and the crunchiness of the cookie chunks make the perfect combination, and let’s not forget about the wafer-like base that is out of this world. Whoever thought of mixing these delectably impeccable items: pure genius.

While there are so many different types of candy, if you are a chocolate lover, then by far the top 3 are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Take 5, and Heath. The classic candy is Hershey’s, and if you aren’t super big on chocolate, then definitely look for Haribo Gummy Bears.


In my opinion, Ghost Peanut Butter Cups are the best. I like them because they have more peanut butter then regular Reese’s. The worst is Jolly Ranchers, they taste like medicine.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Everyone loves them, they taste good, and they have the perfect mix between chocolate and peanut butter. Duhhhhhhhhh.

Maya Oeverman

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are by far the best Halloween candy. They are the perfect blend of the iconic duo: chocolate and peanut butter. Their only fault is that they’re gone to fast.

M&M’s fit the two criteria of the best candy: chocolate and it comes in individual pieces. Also, compared to their counterpart Skittles, they don’t leave you wanting to schedule a dentist appointment after eating them.


The best Halloween candy, by a mile, is Sour Patch Kids. Best tasting, big packages, etc.

Twix: chocolate, caramel, and shortbread – what more do I have to say?

In my opinion, the best Halloween candy of all time are Milky Ways. The decadent nougat, topped with a flavorful layer of caramel and coated all over with milk chocolate, creates a wonderful combination of flavors that is neither too rich nor too bland, but rather the perfect balance.

Twix. Who doesn’t love the soft, gooey caramel filling and that biscuit in the center? Twix will always reign supreme, no matter what candy you compare it to (unless you have braces. In that case I’m very sorry that you can’t enjoy the heavenly feeling of biting into a Twix).
