You likely have to get Halloween candy on your list of stuff to do this weekend, and we thought we'd help you out. After taking an anonymous poll of the team, we feel very confident that you should stock up on the following and prepare yourself to be the most popular house on the block:
Kit Kat. Gimme a break! No, seriously.
Twix. Thus named after combining the words "twin" and "stix.” Twicks must not have gone over well in focus groups.
Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cups. C’mon, they’re even ET’s favorite!
Baby Ruth. Well, we are in Red Sox land.
Butterfinger. Created by the same guy behind Baby Ruth. Inside joke?
Skittles. Think you can beat the 16.13 seconds record to open a bag of Skittles and sort them by color?
Tootsie Roll. Roughly 740 tootsie rolls get made per second; that’s more than 60 million a day!
Candy Corn. Hmmm … votes for this one are still being disputed.
Joking aside, this is a pretty strong line up when it comes to Halloween candy. I'm lucky there was any of it left after placing a bag of it behind my desk earlier this week! If you're still not convinced by our top picks, then can we at least steer you away from some questionable choices? Let's at least agree to say no to pennies, toothbrushes, and the dreaded orange circus peanuts.
And with that, we wish you a treat-filled Halloween!!
