The Best New (and Returning) Halloween Candy You Can Buy This Year
Get 'em while you can!
Let's face it — Halloween is all about the candy. While we love tried-and-true favorites like Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars, Sour Patch Kids and Reese's Cups, we also love to try something new every now and then. This year, brands are coming out with candies that boast new flavors, faces and colors. You'll find hard-shelled candy corn, colorful fruit snacks, apple-filled hard caramels and so much more. These are the best limited-edition candy offerings to pick up for at-home or in-person trick-or-treating this year, plus a few returning favorites we just couldn't pass up.
