We Asked. You Answered: The Best and Worst Candy to Get on Halloween

Email a Friend

As part of our Please Explain: Candy segment, we asked listeners on Facebook what the best candy to get on Halloween is and what the worst is. And you told us. Without further ado, the tricks and the treats...



The Treats:


100 Grand  bars

Full-sized chocolate bar

Snickers – both baby and adult

Heath bars

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade caramel popcorn balls


A special note about Mary Janes – one of our listeners said they were the best, while everyone else disagreed with her. We say, when it comes to trick-or-treating, to each, her own.


The Tricks:

Hard candy sour balls directly from the can

Necco wafers

“Any hard candy that’s more than two colors.”

Circus peanuts

An apple, which isn’t even a kind of candy.

Pennies – again, not a candy


And there’s this guy: “My brother once got a bunch of noodles (boiled), poured loosely into his bag.” That is definitely the worst.
