The Best Halloween Candy

Krescene Holscher, Editor

What even is Halloween candy? Is there really a difference between your everyday Walmart candy and Halloween-specific candy? Aside from candy corn, I think the only difference is the packaging. So, what is the best Halloween candy?

I asked the Journalism and Biology I classes for their opinions. I was pleasantly surprised to only hear duplicate answers a handful of times. Coming in first place are the famous Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Several individuals did specify that they must be Reese’s pumpkins around this time of year. Candy corn and Snicker’s tied for second place. Everyone else questioned had their own unique favorite candy, including Twizzlers, Pay Days, Milky Ways, Twix (specifically left side), Almond Joy, Hershey chocolate, Mary Janes, and dark chocolate.

On the other end of the spectrum, I asked about peoples’ least favorite Halloween candy. The most popular answer was black licorice followed closely by candy corn.
