Beggars can’t be choosers, so the adage goes. Trick-or-Treating can make or break a house at Halloween. Houses are judged by the candies they hand out, and you definitely don’t want to be the house blacklisted for Halloween crimes like pennies, toothbrushes (looking at you, dentists!), or rocks like Charlie Brown.

Huff Post recently posted a list of the Most Hated Halloween Candies. These are the candies that no kid wants in their bucket:

  1. Candy Corn
  2. Mary Janes
  3. Bit-O-Honey
  4. Tootsie Rolls
  5. Good & Plenty
  6. Smarties
  7. Whoppers
  8. Things That Aren’t Candy

There are some of us that would like to dispute the inclusion of awesome candies like Candy Corn, Smarties, and Whoppers on this list, but if you don’t want them, we know someone who will.

Rather than buying the stuff that kids don’t want, USA Today reported on the most popular candies in the US. This is the candy you should be handing out:

  1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  2. M&M’s
  3. Snickers
  4. Hershey’s
  5. Kit Kat
  6. Twix 4 To Go
  7. 3 Musketeers
  8. Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme
  9. Milky Way
  10. Almond Joy

All this candy talk got us thinking about our favorite sweets. Julie loves fun size anything, but especially Twix and Kit Kats. She also loves the 100 Grand bars. John loves the sour Skittles. Tony’s favorite candies are Chick-o-sticks and a Mexican peanut candy called Mazapan.
