We all have a favorite candy that sometimes we just can’t get enough of; that’s why we created Halloween!
Due to preferences and taste-buds, naming a clear “best candy” has been near impossible.
Each year we pick thru Halloween candy until all our favorite treats are gone and there is nothing left but the candies no one seems to like.
But, one team took on the challenge of finding out the best Halloween candy this spooky season.
FiveThirtyEight put 86 different candies into an online matching game. After over 250,000 responses, here are your top five picks!
2. Reese’s minis
1. Reese’s peanut butter cups
I think we can all agree that no matter the shape, or size- Reese’s are a truly wonderful treat to all. (minus those who have peanut allergies or don’t like peanut butter)

As soon as the ranking and video hit the internet, the reactions starting flooding in. Comments on Twitter have ranged from “The data doesn’t lie” from @PhanBoi and “I cannot accept this Skittles slander” from @NicoRibadeneyr and everything in between.
As for me, I am content with the list. I believe that sour gummy worms probably should have been ranked- but I’ll take that up with the 250,000 people that completed the game/survey.

ps they also discuss how old is “too old” to go trick-or-treating. Answers ranged from high school age to a whopping 26-years-old. I’d say somewhere in between 🤷
Us Mississippians have proved to like another type of chocolate Halloween candy- Milk Duds. Yeah. You read that right.
