Top 10 Halloween Candies
Brace yourselves for a fright as Halloween will soon be upon us. Prepare for wicked witches cackling in the shadows, werewolves howling at the moon, zombies stalking the streets and Michael Jackson’s Thriller playing on every radio station.
As well as unnerving apparitions and ghoulish ghosts, Halloween means candy, and lots of it! Kids will be knocking on doors in hope of some sweet treats, but which particular candies will they be hoping to receive when they go trick-or-treating?
Here are 10 of the most popular Halloween candies, which will be overflowing from pumpkin shaped buckets in a few weeks time.
1) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most popular American candies of all time. Kids and adults alike just love that peanut butter taste, and surrounded by rich milk chocolate these treats are extra tempting.
These fruit flavored chewy candies are popular throughout the year but they’re a good choice for Halloween. This is because you can hand out a couple to each of the children who visit your home.
3) 3 Musketeers
A 3 Musketeers nougat bar will always be gratefully received, whether by a demon, a dinosaur or indeed a diminutive musketeer!
4) Spooky Spider Halloween Sweets
If you really want to embrace the creepy atmosphere at this time of year you can pick up some ghoulish candy in various forms. Spooky spider Halloween sweets are perfect to hand out to little devils and witches who knock on your door.
Nerds are tasty, tangy and sometime super sour! This makes them perfect for Halloween, as it will make kids’ faces twist like tiny monsters as they devour their candy haul.
Chocolate, biscuit, caramel…what more could you want? Thankfully there are fun size Twix bars available to save your waistline a little. And these smaller bars are ideal to give to spooky little trick-or-treaters.
7) Popping Candy
Whether you’re a child or an adult you won’t be able to resist smiling after a mouthful of fizzing popping candy. This is definitely an odd sweet but one that people just love.
Skittles are great to give away at Halloween. You can fill a bowl at your front door, creating a colorful attraction that will mean you definitely get your fair share of little ghouls coming knocking.
We’re back into the arena of chocolate and peanut butter, and this is obviously a combination that works. Butterfingers have been incredibly popular in the US for years and years, and these little bars are sure to disappear quickly from your candy bowl at Halloween.
10) Nestle Crunch
Sweet milk chocolate and crisped rice go into the Nestle Crunch bar and this is another candy bar that the US adores. Make sure you have a few to give away as treats this Halloween and your house will be very popular!
