The best and worst Halloween candy ranked for 2021

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to take a look at the stuff trick or treaters will be looking for when they come knocking.

With that in mind, surveyed 20,000 customers to create its “definitive” annual ranking of the ten best — and the 10 worst — Halloween candies. 

At the top of the heap: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. At the bottom? Candy corn — which actually “beat” those sweetened, gag-inducing bits of styrofoam known as circus Peanuts as the worst of the worst.
