Hershey’s Krackel

These are the elusive sultans of the Hershey’s Miniatures bag. How does a bit of crisped rice so greatly enhance milk chocolate? This candy proves that Snap and Pop have long been holding back their gifted brother.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin

While the flavor is identical to the classic cup, its gourd shape means there is something rare in your grasp. You can’t get these treats any day you please. It’s like Halley’s Comet– if instead of a mass of frozen gases and dust, it was one of peanut butter, vegetable oil, sugar, dextrose and salt. Yum!

Take 5

In late 2004, candy innovation hit a peak when Hershey’s decided to combine the contents of almost every other candy bar in existence (chocolate,pretzels, caramel, peanuts, and peanut butter) into one crunchy, chewy,salty, sweet wonder-bar. I’ll take six. *wink*

Pop Rocks

Here, candy and chemistry collide giving kids the sensation of swallowing sugary live fire crackers. You’d be hard up to find much more fun in a 4″ packet.

Anything Sour Or Hot

Warheads, Sour Patch Kids, Atomic Fireballs or Hot Tamales. Look, kids love adventure. And these sweets definitely put the “ow!” (and the fun) in Halloween.

Blue Razz Blow Pop

Blue raspberries do not exist outside of factories. But we’re willing to ignore that because this candy has bubble gum inside! The lollipop also turns your tongue blue, so it doubles as one of the world’s most affordable costumes.

There are very rare instances when you bite into one of these malt balls and instead of their characteristic crunch, they deflate. While this isolated “Whopper puddin’” is one of life’s greatest disappointments, the crunch is by and large one of its most satisfying sensations.

I’ve heard this is the world’s best-selling candy bar. I endorse compounding this epidemic.

Candy Corn

No candy represents Halloween more than the classic tri-colored treat.They look and taste like the nectarous fangs of unicorns.

Anything Full Size

Halloween candy bars are usually scaled-down and given the hilarious misnomer, “fun size.” For something to be truly fun size, it must be big enough to climb.
