Halloween is pretty stressful. There’s the chaos of decorating, the worry of finding the right costume and of course, concern over making plans. Sometimes it can be easy to forget about the important stuff, but we always need to remember what this holiday is really about: the candy.
You may be too old for trick or treating, but you’re never too old for the candy. We ranked classic Halloween candy from best to worst so that you wouldn’t have to waste your precious time chowing down on the bad stuff. And remember, treats are always greater than tricks.
I seriously don’t know one person who hates Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I mean, they’re chocolate and peanut butter, people. What more could you really ask for?
If you had any childhood at all then Skittles was most likely a big part of it, especially on Halloween. They come in different flavors, like melon berry and berry punch, which makes for an amazing mix.

Not only are they a cult-favorite in the world of candy, their flavors are so useful in a ton of other ways.
Definitely an underrated gem! Though it’s buried in all of the crunchy, yummy goodness, it’s still a fave.
Every single Starburst is good… except for the lemon and orange flavors, let’s be honest.
Okay, yes, they get stuck in your teeth, but so does everything else. The bright side is that they taste so good that you can’t even care.
Remember your teacher giving you these when you did something good? If not, you know that this candy was always a welcome part of your goody bag, and it still is. Even the sour ones are great, but they’re harder to get your hands on.
You may not be sure what the best part of a Snickers is, but you know that this candy is a must-have.

You know you love ’em.
Iconic. Enough said.
Carmel and chocolate covering a cookie? Yes, please!
12. Sour Patch Kids
Sometimes a little too sour, but it’s not the worst of the candy bunch
13. Tootsie Fruit Rolls
Just throw out the vanilla flavor!
14. Pixy Stix
This always left you super hyper and bouncing off the walls. It’ll probably put you in a sugar coma, so be careful.
15. Candy Corn
Do you even have to ask?
