Power Picks: Favorite Halloween Candies and Memories

Halloween is the most spooktacular time of year! For our latest Power Picks blog, we asked our Power Players to share some of their best memories and favorite tasty treats. We hope you enjoy the roundup and don’t get ghosted this spooky season!


I always liked the candy that my younger brother didn’t. So, that means I always got his extra Almond Joy, Mounds, Peppermint Patties, and miniature dark Hersheys. I didn’t like KitKats then, and I still don’t today!


My favorite Halloween candy has always been KitKat bars. The crispy crunchy bars are actually my favorite candy year-round! Growing up, I loved celebrating Halloween with my family. We used to live a few doors down from my grandparents so we’d walk over to their house, hop on a golf cart and Trick or Treat all around the neighborhood. Good times!


The best Halloween candy is hands down the mini Hershey bars. I have loved Hershey bars my entire life and would steal other kids’ bars when we were dropping all of our candy out at the end of the night. My favorite Halloween memory is dressing up with my sister every year when we were growing up. Our mom would always get us costumes from our favorite movies at the time and we thought it was the coolest thing ever!


Twizzlers and Hershey’s milk chocolate bars have always been my two favorite candies. Growing up, none of my friends or family liked Twizzlers so I would trade all of my candy for their individually wrapped Twizzlers. I thought it was the BEST trade-off. I also used to be strangely conservative with my Hershey bars and would ration it out to only one piece each night. My goal was to see how long I could make the same Hershey bar last. That self-control is now long gone.


My absolute favorite Halloween candies are KitKats and Reese’s – so good! My dad always taught me to freeze the Recee’s cups so I’ve been doing that forever. My favorite memory growing up is going Trick or Treating with my neighbors and running to each door collecting all the candy. Afterward, we would always watch a Halloween movie play in my culdesac and all the kids would exchange candy. I miss those days! 


I love the Halloween candy season since they come wrapped in the perfect size to enjoy MULTIPLE at a time. My favorite candies are KitKats, Reeses’ pumpkins and dark chocolate Hershey bars. I remember how my mom always used to take my candy basket before I went to dig in after trick-or-treating, just so she could keep some for my school lunches for the next few weeks! I was always popular for a few weeks after the holiday, and now I know why.


My favorite Halloween candies have always been KitKat bars and the Reeses’ pumpkins. I have no idea what goes on at the Hershey factory, but Reeses’ are infinitely better when they are in a different shape. My birthday is three days after Halloween so growing up, I remember several Halloween-themed parties. For one party in particular, my mom made these intricately decorated cupcakes in the design of Dracula, Frankenstein, a werewolf and a mummy. To this day, people still reference those to me!


My favorite Halloween candy is definitely Reese’s. Growing up, I dressed up as Snow White or Dorothy from Wizard of Oz almost every year because people always told me I resembled them because of my dark hair! I loved parading all around my neighborhood with my parents and friends and trick-or-treating to each house. I would always eat way too much candy and have a stomach ache/ be on a sugar high and not sleep well and my parents were never too happy. 


I love all kinds of candy, but my favorite Halloween candy is definitely Snickers and Sour Patch Kids. Growing up, I enjoyed getting ready each year and going around the neighborhood with my friends. My most memorable Halloween was actually when I was older and I met our neighbors Jordan and JoJo from the Bachelor.


I am a sugar feen! I used to live for Halloween each year so I could add to my candy collection in my room. My favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s or Caramel Apple Lollipops! Halloween was always such a fun holiday for me because I am the youngest of five kids and so we would trick or treat all together which made the night that much more fun… Even though the night would usually always end in a fight between some of us because someone would always have less or worse candy.


I love anything dark chocolate – dark chocolate Reeses are the best! My brothers are allergic so I would always wind up with theirs every Halloween. My favorite memory was dressing up with my family as different Disney movies over the years. My first Halloween I was a dalmatian with my sister and dad while my mom was Cruella de Vil!
