It is October and thoughts of Halloween are already getting into our minds. I love the tradition of Halloween for one night you can become another person, an animal, a character, the possibilities are endless.

If you are a kid there is nothing like dressing up in your costume and getting a giant pile of candy which makes you feel like you are rich with your treasure of candy. Trading candy with your siblings or friends it is a lot of fun.

In this article Halloween will be rated into Favorites by a Top 5 rating. Here is a list of the Top 5 Halloween Favorites.

Kitkat bar

According to the Huffington Food Post here are the favorite Halloween candies

1. Kitkat candy bar. It is a candy bar that originated in England in 1988. Nestle makes the candy worldwide, and in the United States Hershey has the honor of making the candy bar. Who wouldn’t want this light wafer candy. Break me off another piece of a Kitkat bar.


2. Starburst this is another candy that originated in England by the Mars company in 1959. The original flavors were Strawberry, Lemon, and Lime. These soft fruity candies are a perfect burst of fruit flavor. They belong in the top five for their great flavors.

Twix candy bar

3. Twix Bar England has a way with candy making and this is another candy bar that was produced there first in 1967 and in the US in 1979. It is a perfect combination of chocolate, biscuit, and caramel it is perfection .

Pop Rocks

4. Pop Rocks is an American creation first made by a chemist in 1956 it became available to the public in 1975. It is a rather strange carbonated candy made of sugar, lactose, corn syrup and flavoring. When you put the Pop Rocks in your mouth your saliva breaks the candy down causing you to have popping and tingling in your mouth. It is fun especially for kids.


5. Butterfinger is an American candy created in 1923 and made of a crispy orange center and covered in chocolate. Tasty, but it sticks to the teeth a little bit. The taste is worth it though.

The set of Psycho
