1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

The Best Halloween Candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. This a clear favorite if you like chocolate and peanut butter. If there is one reason to go trick or treating this year, this is it. Reese’s is the perfect combination of Chocolate and peanut butter is a candy that has the perfect balance. Besides the orange colored packaging, when you think of Halloween, the first candy that comes to mind is Resse’s.

2. KitKat

KitKat’s are the second best candy on this list. The main reason is because it lacks the peanut butter. Do you blame us? You just cannot beat the peanut butter and chocolate combo. Kitkat is a very close second. The crunch from the wafer makes it a satisfying candy for those who value texture. Bonus points if you get the “Extra Crispy Kitkat’s”.

3. Twix

Twix is 3rd on the list because it lacks the crunch that KitKat does. Twix fell behind KitKat for the crunch but solidified it’s spot in third because of its sweet caramel. Also to note the proper way to say it, it is kuh-ruh-muhl, not kahr-muhl. Now that that’s out of the way, Twix is a great candy for halloween and even better to have for the rest of the year.

4. Snickers

Snickers is sitting at number 4 because sometimes the nougat topped with caramel and peanuts, and all encased in milk chocolate can be a little too much when you just want a little bit of candy. Nonetheless, snickers had to make the list because when you are in the mood for it just hits.

5. Peanut M&M’s

Peanut M&M’s have the perfect balance of hard chocolate shell with the crunch and flavor of the peanut on the inside. If you are allergic to peanut butter, sorry but you are missing out. Do not buy a big bag of these because they will be gone before you know it.
