Candy Snob's Halloween Buying Guide

Scary Choice #1
SCARY LOLLIES 41W4G50J37L._SL500_AA280_.jpgBoogyman Lollipops
Some pretty creepy (and ugly) halloween lollies. Flavors include: Boo Raspberry, Gang Green Apple, Eerie Orange, and Scary Cherry.

Candy Corn

CORN 51SG4DPWP7L._AA280_.jpgZachary Candy Corn in 1-Oz Packets
No Halloween is complete without candy corn, and we particularly like these because they are in one-ounce bags, which make it a perfect, sanitary way to pass them out to kids. And its built in portion control for yourself, if you need that like I do. Even better, these are made with real honey.

Stand out with Nostalgic Miniatures

A vast majority of candy-bar houses are going to play it safe with Nestle, Hershey or Mars. Be a little different, that is to say, memorable to the kids with some miniatures that aren't quite top of mind anymore.

Miniature Zagnuts - From 1930, you can't beat the unique combination of crunchy peanut butter covered in toasted coconut.

ROCKY313BSTATB3L._SL500_AA220_.jpgMiniature Rocky Roads - A 1950's west coast classic - light fluffy marshmallow topped with flavorful roasted cashew nuts.

PRINDLES F144DFDE68514B418E4EF67AE6A7F439.jpgCandy Apples
Mrs. Prindable's Halloween Favor Apples
These candy apples are like none you've ever seen before. These Halloween favors are petite versions of the usually gynormous apples Mrs. Prindable usually puts out. IN addition to the beautiful enrobement, they are dressed in orange and black bows. You have your choice between milk chocolate pecan or triple chocolate.

Scary Choice #2
EYEBALLS 51BP4ARC62L._SL500_AA280_.jpgCreepy Peepers Filed Chocolate EyeballsWe like the idea of leaving a bowl of these outside your door, a pretty scary but equally delicious little idea. Even more gross is that they're chewy...with a "chocolate optic nerve and peanut butter retina center" that is either caramel, peanut butter or fudge.

For the Traditionalist
150 FUN PACK51ZRQzT5pUL._SL500_AA280_.jpgAll Chocolate 150 Piece Halloween Fun Size Assortment
If you're feeling like taking it safe this year, you should go for a variety pack of candy bar miniatures. There are a lot out there, but we recommend this one because it has a ton of variety, and it mixes brands - you'll find both Hershey's and Mars items in this pack.

The Slightly Lame Choice
Look...we like Smarties. And the reason they're on the list at all is because their packaging was perfectly designed to toss into a Halloween bag. But if you're a kid and you bring home a bag full of goodies, most of which are chocolate and richer candies...where do you think Smarties fall on the priority list?
