Top 5: Best Halloween Candy


Bryce Ritchey

Who doesn’t love candy? With Halloween just around the way, I surveyed various students on their #1 candy for Halloween and here were the results to round out a top 5.

5. Butterfingers

 1 person chose butterfingers. It’s like somebody took a bunch of peanut butter, transformed it into the world’s thinnest toffee, and layered it underneath a blanket of chocolate. And when you bite it, the little flakes pop off and melt on your tongue like butter produced by a chocolate cow.

4. KitKat

3 people chose KitKat. It’s the closest your Halloween bag’s gonna come to having a sandwich inside, and let’s be honest: milk chocolate and sugary wafers are way better than a tiny tuna on rye, especially after they’ve been sitting in a pillowcase for a few hours. 

3. Snickers

4 people chose snickers. It’s easily the heartiest of all candy bars: nougat, caramel, nuts, and chocolate represent pretty much every food group. And this is one that’s hard to eat in a single bite, even when you’re going bite size.

2. Twix

5 people selected the cookie crunch. The deliciously hard caramel. The ultra-silky chocolate. There are a lot of things to love about Twix (three, actually), but this thing’s even better in fun-size form. The ratios between the three main components are simply perfect, striking a balance that makes the intense sugar rush completely worth it.

1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

6 people selected Reese’s. Not only is it the greatest candy out there, it’s also one of the greatest snacks, period, the perfect alchemy of peanut butter and chocolate. And it’s so versatile especially at Halloween.
