Halloween Candies You Don’t Want to Answer the Door Without

When it comes to Halloween, there isn’t much that’s more important than the goodies you offer the kiddos that come to your door. Sure, the costumes are nice and the movies are fun to watch and the spooky music is always a nice touch, but the real show-stopper is the candy that you dish out every year. And every year, there are a few bits of candy that you simply can’t be without. You don’t want to run the risk of a child-riot on your hands! Kids on a sugar high can be pretty intense. Plus, it’s always a good idea to have a little for yourself on the side.

From gummies to chocolate to marshmallows, this list has a great selection of treats you can offer the kids that walk up to your door. Now, all you have left to do is pick out your great costume and wait for the big day to arrive. You’re good to go!

Jewelry You Can Eat

Kids love a good gimmick and Ring Pops are the ultimate candy gimmick. You can enjoy the delicious taste and your kids can accessorize. I advise not to let them accessorize without supervision though, cause these guys can get pretty sticky and the last thing you want is your kid sucking on a dog-fur-covered candy.
