Spooky Sipping: 10 Halloween Candies You Can Pair With Wine

Skittles

Skittles

These fruity, chewy candies are best suited to a glass of sweet white wine (Moscato, Riesling, Malvasia) or dry white wine (white table wine, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Albariño).

Candy Corn

 Candy Corn

The classic halloween candy should be combined with the most complimentary wine. You can sip on a sweet white (Moscato, Riesling, Malvasia), rich white wine (Chardonnay, Roussane, Marsanne, Viognier), or a sparkling wine (Champagne, Prosecco, sparkling rose)

Snickers

Snickers

You’re not yourself when you’re hungry, and your Snickers isn’t the same without the perfect wine. The chocolate and caramel is best with a medium red (red table wine, Zinfandel, Grenache, Merlot), a bold red (Cabernet Sauvignon, Monastrell, Malbec, Syrah), or a dessert wine (late harvest, ice wine, Sherry, Port, tawny Port, ruby Port).

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven, but the perfect wine pairing just takes it over the edge. If Reese’s are your Halloween jam, then nibble them while enjoying a glass of light red (St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Gamay), medium red (red table wine, Zinfandel, Grenache, Merlot), or a dessert wine (late harvest, ice wine, Sherry, Port, tawny Port, ruby Port).

Starburst

 Starburst

The unexplainably juicy Starburst are so sweet and fruity that you might not think they need a wine companion. It doesn’t hurt to drink a glass with them though! Starburst are meant to go with either a sweet white (Moscato, Riesling, Malvasia) or a light red (St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Gamay).

Hershey’s Chocolate Bars

Hershey’s Chocolate Bars

The simple-yet-delicious Hershey's chocolate bar can mix with several different wines, which is great for those that have a picky palate. Sweet whites (Riesling, Moscato, and Malvasia), rich whites (Chardonnay, Roussane, Marsanne, and Viognier), light reds (St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Gamay) and medium reds (red table wine, Zinfandel, Merlot, Grenache) are all excellent pairings for this candy bar.

M&Ms

M&Ms

M&Ms have a rich taste, so they naturally go best with red wines. Medium reds (red table wine, Zinfandel, Grenache, Merlot) and bold reds (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Monastrell) have the perfect robust flavor to enjoy between a handful of these little chocolate treasures.

Butterfinger

Butterfinger

A crispy peanut-butter-and-chocolate combination like Butterfinger should only go with either a rich white wine (Chardonnay, Roussane, Viognier, Marsanne) or dessert wines (late harvest, ice wine, Sherry, Port, ruby Port, tawny Port).

Kit Kat

Kit Kat

Before you break off a piece of that Kit Kat bar, pour the right glass of wine to enjoy with it. Sparkling wines (Champagne, Sparkling Wine, Prosecco, sparkling rose) and medium reds (red table wine, Merlot, Grenache, Zinfandel) mingle beautifully with this chocolatey wafer.

Nerds

Nerds

The crunchy, sugary Nerds you love are most suited for sparkling wines (sparkling wine, Champagne, sparkling rose, Prosecco). Trust me: Sparkling wine and crunchy Nerds are the ultimate combination.
