Florida Halloween Candy Power Rankings 2023

Halloween Candy is everywhere!  Stores start selling it in August.  Halloween Candy also begins the three-legged tour to weight gain.  It begins the Halloween - Thanksgiving - Christmas food fest that forces everyone to make weight loss the number one New Year's resolution.  What's the best Halloween Candy? There are so many to choose from. However, no job is too big to tackle on ESPN Southwest Florida. In fact, being the staff sugar-holic, I jumped at the chance to lead the charge. It's a big job but somebody had to do it. First of all, I have a massive amount of candy eating experience. I've been doing it regularly since I was a kid!  And, since I've been eating candy for so long I am able to remember the classics as well as be aware of the newcomers. Secondly, we have to remember to consider the many groups of candies available to us. For example, we have the chocolate bar. In fact, Hershey's has made the simple classic chocolate bar for over 120 years.  And it's still great today. But now, in addition to the flat chocolate bar on the market, there are chocolate bars stuffed with caramel, nougat, nuts, pretzels and anything else you may think of.  May, I also add, chocolate-based candy is way better than hard candy? That's just a fact. Then there are the fruit flavored candies. Some are hard. Some are soft. Many are sweet and some are sour. There are so many to choose from.  So sit back and enjoy our Power Rankings of Halloween Candy. And Happy Halloween! -Craig Shemon
