The Best & Worst Halloween Candy
Heading out to get free candy on Halloween night is one of childhood’s greatest thrills. And while the overall haul is sweet, there are certainly sugar highs and lows when sorting through your loot.
Which candies are the best treats and which are totally trick-worthy? The Block Club team weighs in…
BEST: Three Musketeers. What even is inside those things? Why is there a candy bar named after an old French novel? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
WORST: Little boxes of Sun-Maid raisins.
BEST: 100 Grand. So ugly, so good.
WORST: Good & Plenty.
– Margaret, Labs project manager
BEST: Reese’s peanut butter cups (pumpkin shape preferred).
WORST: Necco Wafers. Who thought they could pass off chalk discs as candy?!
– Pat S., brand manager
WORST: Candy Corn. I have a theory that all the candy corn that is out there has been recycled year after year. It will be around on this planet long after us humans.
– Tim, designer
BEST: Full-size candy bars of any kind.
WORST: Necco Wafers.
– Brandon, creative director
WORST: Almond Joy. Almonds ruin everything.
– Dave, director of business development
BEST: Payday (I’m a grandma).
WORST: Smarties. I dunno, I just don’t get it.
– Julie, designer
WORST: When someone tries to pass off raisins as candy.
– Steve, brand manager
BEST: Payday Bars.
WORST: Necco Waffers.
BEST: Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.
WORST: Cough drops and pennies.
