Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, Airheads or Blow Pops. Here's a list of the Best Halloween Candy for kids and adults. Which houses give Hershey Bars, Reese's PB Cups or Kit Kats? Hershey's National Survey Results tell all.
Let's face it. Kids love candy. Stick-to-your-braces, pull-out-your-fillings, sick-to-your-stomach candy. The stuff that rots your teeth out. Parents try to teach their kids to make wise choices, but kids will be kids. In fact, dentists all around the country have adopted a new Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program, designed to get your kids to eat less candy, and send it to the troops instead. Great idea, but let's see it in action the day after Halloween.
In an independent survey, kids from 10-80 were asked what their favorite Halloween candies were. Young children seemed to love their M&M's and Skittles, while older kids liked Twizzlers and anything chocolate.
Reminiscing over their early years, the over 50 crowd had visions of Hershey Bars, Mr Goodbars and Licorice Whips dancing in their heads. Times have changed, kids have changed, and their tastes have changed with them.
Below are some favorite Halloween Candies for different age groups in no specific order. Mix and Match, and remember to eat responsibly!

To help trick-or-treaters map their routes this Halloween, Hershey conducted a national survey to find out which houses were handing out their favorite Hershey treats. Following are some “tricks” to increase the odds of receiving desired “treats”:
- Houses with black shutters are 77 percent more likely to hand out Kit Kat Wafer Bars and trick-or-treaters have a 37 percent greater chance of scaring up a Kit Kat Wafer Bar from a ranch house.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup lovers should forego ranch houses and opt instead to ring the bell of two-story houses where they’ll have a 26 percent greater chance of receiving the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter.
- Knock on brown doors if seeking Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars. Trick-or-treaters have a 32 percent greater chance of receiving a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar from homes with brown doors.
