The Best and Worst Halloween Candy

Best and Worst Halloween Candy

Just because Tootsie Rolls are your favorite kind of candy doesn’t mean that every kid in your neighborhood is going to agree with you and your Halloween treat choices. Providing you have social distancing measures in place, do you know what candy is going to make your house the best on the block? Sure, there are dozens of lists of the best and worst Halloween candy and their answers vary on many different factors, but CandyStore.com probably has done the most research on this topic and their answers are pretty spot on.

First, they gathered the data from 12 “best and worst” lists from Buzzfeed, Business Insider, Huffington Post, FoxNews, Houston Press, PlayBuzz, Bon Appetit, HelloGiggles, The Week, Thrillist, Mental Floss and 24/7 Wall Street. Then they polled 20,000 of their own customers and added them to the mix.

Even so, everyone’s taste buds are different and they change from time to time. Some people are drawn to the nostalgia of older candies even if they are not crazy about the taste. Some people just like sugar. For me personally, three of my favorites have landed on the wrong list. Because of this, CandyStore.com continues to sell a huge variety of candies even if they land on the “worst” list because someone out there still likes them!

Here is what they found. The answers might surprise you.
