The Halloween tradition is credited to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Today, the tradition has expanded into a wide variety of activities, including wearing creepy costumes, making Jack-O’-Lanterns, and the most popular of all: trick-or-treating.

If you’re still planning on what candies to buy for trick-or-treating, we’ve listed down some of the best Halloween candies of all time. Read below so you won’t miss out on these Halloween favorites:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

This candy is actually our personal favorite, and we recommend this to you since you’ll enjoy this one-biteable glory! Once you devour the peanut butter and chocolate combination, you’ll certainly include it as your go-to snack, even if it’s not the Halloween season.


The snack-size Kitkat is one of the best Halloween candies of all time. Its sugary wafers and milk chocolate will have you drooling for more to the degree that you’ll head on to the nearest store to buy another batch. You can also pick out the ones wrapped with spooky packaging, as this will be a hit with the kids in your neighborhood.

Hershey’s Bars

This American classic is called a classic for a reason. Hershey’s Bars may be overrated in the market, but it’s the best melt-in-your-mouth candy for Halloween! You can also choose the Cookies’ n’ Creme and the Almonds to have different trick-or-treating options.


Butterfinger is one candy that’s very easy to spot because of it’s bright yellow packaging. It’s a mix of peanut butter and toffee, layered underneath a blanket of chocolate.


Enough of chocolates…for now. The Runts candy is fruity, crunchy, very fun to eat, and is worth the Halloween trick-or-treating investment! You’ll love biting down on a strawberry piece or yellow banana.

Sour Patch Kids

This candy is a fan-favorite. With its slogan, “Sour. Sweet. Gone.”, we’d like to change it to “Sour. Sweet. Fun.” The candy’s sour-to-sweet taste is definitely a best-seller for both kids and adults during the Halloween season.


Airheads are taffy-like, chewy candy that comes in different flavors, such as green apple, strawberry, orange, grape, cherry, blue raspberry, and more. This tangy candy can boggle your mind since it leaves your tongue dyed with color, depending on the flavors you choose.

Blow Pops

If you’re looking for a lollipop, we highly suggest Blow Pops. The hard candy shell comes with a surprise, but you have to be patient because once you chew the whole thing up, you’ll discover the soft bubble gum center. Have your credit cards ready since this candy is a crowd-puller!

Junior Mints

For those who aren’t familiar with Junior Mints, these are dark chocolate candies with small rounds of mint filling inside.


Halloween won’t be complete without these colorful button-shaped chocolates. Originating from the ’50s, M&M’s has been a winner for decades when it comes to trick-or-treating.


Starbursts are box-shaped, soft taffy candies that are a knockout to your party. These little pieces of fruity perfection are your insurance for a great trick-or-treat in your neighborhood.

Nestle Crunch

This chocolate bar is perfect for little ones who are obsessed with rice puffs. Put it in your freezer for a few hours, and then once it’s chilled, you’d indulge in the heavenly taste of Nestlé’s delicious milk chocolate.


If you want to gas up your Halloween night, don’t forget to include Snickers in your candy bags. This candy has caramel, nuts, chocolate, and nougat in it, and it’s absolutely irresistible.

Tootsie Rolls

With a flavor of cocoa mixed with cream, who wouldn’t want to have Tootsie Rolls for Halloween? This taffy-like candy is a smash hit for the occasion, so make sure to include this in your shopping list.
