The Best Candy for Halloween Ever, That's Right, Ever.

4. Caramel Apple Pops - If we ever meet the genius who came up with these, he(or she) will be getting the biggest hug ever. No matter how much these get stuck in our teeth, we won't give them up.

3. Salt Water Taffy - This is our list and we can put what we want on it and we happen to be huge fans of this classic confection. Especially the peppermint and strawberry banana.

2. Nerds - You can never have enough little boxes of Nerds in your trick or treat bag, but don't plan on getting them from our house because we will probably be secretly hording them until the last of the Sweet Tarts are gone. And even then we might just turn off the light.

1. Hersey's Chocolate Bars  - Good ol' plain Hersey's Milk Chocolate Bars. The bigger, the better. We remember our mother stealing these out of our candy bags after we were done terrorizing the neighborhood because she "didn't want them to melt." We don't recall ever getting them back.

The best halloween candy for me would be... those mini packs sour patch kids. THOSE ARE THE BOMB. While I have never sniffed up Pixi-Stix, I'll admit to sniffing up the little crystals from the patches.

Ok, I agree with the person that said lindt truffles, they are awesome! I also like werthers originals chewy, 100 grand bars, and milkey ways. I don't like candy corn, I like the caramel apple pops, and btw, I think that pixie stix is just smarties powder for everyone saying that smarties should be on the list. And hershey's? That is lame for first.

Milky Ways and Snickers are at the top. Also anything Wonka. But Reese's should be wayyyyy above #10!!! And don't forget Starburst!

Pixie stix are one of the worst because they almost always break open and spill everywhere...

I can't believe you guys didn't put in any Lindt chocolate. Is it because it's so good that no one gives it out at Halloween? Or have you poor guys never tasted any?

This list confuses me.

I seriously doubt anyone has ever received pop rocks or salt water taffy. While yummy, they have nothing to do with Halloween.

Glad nerds made the list. Where are smarties? Mini mars? Peppermint patties? Spree? Freaking bottlecaps? M&Ms? Malt balls? Boston baked beans? Gobstoppers? And above all: milk daddies?!

This list is terrible, is the writer like 80? A hershey bar #1? Pop rocks? Where's the Snickers at?

Hey Shannon, how much did Hersey's pay you for this horribly slanted and outright WRONG list?

Worst list evar!

Where's the hell is Kit Kat! Hershey at #1? Nestle's Crunch is better. No Snickers? Yet you picked Hershey's Chocolate Bars ?!?! Oh yeah, no M&M :(

I grew up in the late 80's, and I've never even SEEN an Atomic Fire Ball or a Caramel Apple Pop. Candy Corn is gross, as is salt water taffy. No bite size Snickers? No M&M's? Oh, and you put the most boring chocolate at #1.

Reese's peanut butter cup period. Nothings better.

Candy Corn? Baby Ruths? Mini Butterfingers? Your list is broken.

+1 to Cadbury chocolate being better than Hersheys. Candy Corn is admittedly gross but has always been a guilty pleasure for me this time of year (Mellow Cream Pumpkins are better.)Salt Water Taffy has no business being on the list :-(

Reese's? Nah.. give me the mini Milky Way, Three Musketeers, and, for the East Coasters, Charleston Chew bars and/or the mini bags of M&M's anytime!

Hershey's? Honestly that's the best you have over there? You should try some Cadbury's chocolate from Ireland. Now that's creamy chocolate.

Salt Water Taffy and Candy Corn are gross. The rest are okay.

Eh! Amateur-hour here for sure. The KING-size Snickers Bar was the one that I remember my friends and I circling a house for. We would mix and match our costumes to hit that one house up for as many Snickers as we could before the owner caught on. (pro-tip for all the kids!)

Candy corn is often on a list of the world's worst treats. They're gross and waxy and don't have any flavor. They're not even sweet. Skittles aren't much better than candy corn.

I like Hershey bars, but I have to agree that it is a disappointing #1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups would have made a better #1.

I love Chocolate bar. It's certainly is a great choice for Halloween

Hershey's Chocolate Bars? That was a disappointing number 1.

I beg to differ, not all Reese's peanut butter cups are created equal. The minis are only foil-wrapped, which isn't enough to convince Mom that they haven't been loaded up with heroin and razor blades by those weirdos down the block that none of the other adults will talk to. Go for the single, plastic-wrapped full-size cups.

Besides, the chocolate-to-peanut-butter ratio is off on the minis, it's perfect on the regular-sized ones.

I think the Big Cup has the ratio perfect. For some reason I don't like the Dark Chocolate Reese's, but I love dark chocolate usually.
