Halloween is right around the corner as October is nearing its end. This holiday is filled with fun costumes, scary decorations, and sweet treats. As kids, the whole goal of Halloween was to see how much candy one could obtain by the the time the night was over. Going from house to house, there is a wide variety of candies though the neighborhood’s, but what candy is the most sought after? That is a question the students of Bainbridge High School are going to answer, comparing and contrasting from the vast selection.

“Kit Kat’s are obviously the superior candy. They have chocolate, a good crunch, and a variety of ways to eat them, and most importantly, the don’t get stuck in your teeth.” BHS senior, Alex Miller, says when asked about her personal favorite treat. Kit Kats are one of the most popular candies overall according to BHS students, not just on Halloween. They come in a variety of sizes and are ready easy to eat without making a mess.

On the contrary, when asked about his favorite Halloween candy, Max Eyrich says, “Reese’s are by far the best candy you can recieve for Halloween. They’ve got that perfect peanut butter chocolate combo and they practically melt in your mouth. The only downside is you’ve got to eat them quick or they will melt in your hand.” If you aren’t the biggest peanut butter fan, these aren’t the candy for you. However, they are loved by almost everyone who tries them and are a staple for any kids trick or treat bag.

If you aren’t a chocolate person, Nerds are another fun and festive treat to share. “Nerds are my favorite because they come in that cute little box. They have tons of different flavors, so if you don’t like yours you can switch with a friend. And they are overall enjoyable to eat because of their cute little size.” BHS freshman, Charlotte Weller, says when she was asked her opinion on Halloween candy. They are known to be similar to Gobstoppers, in the sense that they both are made out of the same ingredients. The most popular flavors of Nerds include; strawberry banana, lemonade- wild cherry, grape, and wild cherry.

Halloween brings out sweetness through what is thought to be a “dark holiday.” Candies like Kit Kat’s, Reese’s, and Nerds all help in creating fun for children through trick or treating, but this excitement is also sure to spread into all ages. Whether it be chocolate, sour, or spice, there is a Halloween treat out there for everyone, so go out this holiday and try something new! You never know, you could find your new favorite candy.
