 Halloween is right around the corner, not only does that mean fun costumes but it also means… CANDY!!! Everyone wants their house to be the best trick-or-treating house on the street. So, if you’re looking for ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a list of the worst and best Halloween candy. 

The Worst: 

As for the worst candy, you might not have heard of many of them. If you have heard of them it is probably because they are so bad. Here are the top three rated worst Halloween candy: 

  • Good & Plenty

This medicine-looking candy is licorice flavored. Most of the trick-or-treating population is not a fan of licorice tasting candies. When asking students at my school, the majority had no idea what this candy was. 

  • Sixlets

This fake chocolate candy is hated by many. Chewing them is not easy, because the outer shell is so hard when you bite down it is almost unbreakable. There is also no flavor and at this point the candy is just a waste of sugar intake. Candy lover, Mariah Daniels, says, “I used to get these in party favors and I would be so mad because they could’ve gotten such better candy.”

  • Whoppers 

These malt balls are hated and unappreciated by the trick-or-treaters. The inside texture is very strange and outside chocolate covering has a waxy feeling. NAHS senior Olivia Hewitt, says, “When I was little and got Whoppers at a house I wouldn’t go back to that house.” 

The Best:

Peanut butter and chocolate is one of the most delicious food combinations. This candy has a rich chocolate outside with a smooth peanut butter filling in the middle. NAHS senior, Sierra Antonitis, says, “they have the perfect peanut butter and chocolate ratio.” 

  • Twix

Twix candy bars have an overload of delicious flavor between the caramel chocolatey cookie crunch. These are popular amongst many teens and adults. This is a very convenient candy because they sell them at many stores and they come in different sizes. Senior, Danielle Glidden, says, “I love biting into twix bars and satisfying my taste buds with the gooey deliciousness.”

The classic candy almost everybody loves. These small colorful chocolate candies now come in many different flavors. The original flavor was milk chocolate and now they have many flavors including: peanut, caramel, pretzel, hazelnut, etc. Eight-year-old, Karina Rodrigues, says, “M&Ms are the best candy because they are so small so you can eat more.”
