The Best Classic Halloween Candy, According to Your Zodiac Sign
You’ve ordered your unicorn costume on eBay, perfected your pumpkin smoothie recipe, and have your spookiest decorations perfectly crafted — you’re (almost) ready for Halloween. The only thing missing? Your candy stash. And since you’re well past the age of trick-or-treating, you’ve got to choose your candy all on your own, which is no easy feat since there are so many options! As usual though, we’ve got your back. We’ve already figured out your most surprising personality trait — now it’s time to determine what’s best for your sign’s sweet tooth.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 to FEBRUARY 18)
Sour Patch Kids: Your independent streak and original worldview mean you often get misconstrued as a rebel without a cause, Aquarius, which couldn’t be further from the case. While you may have to push a few buttons to see the change you know is needed, your goal is always to bring about a positive impact. These sugary, tart-then-sweet gummies are totally up your air-sign alley.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 to MARCH 20)
Airheads: No shade, Pisces. It’s not that you don’t have anything going on up there — it’s actually quite the opposite. As a thoughtful water sign with a tendency toward the spiritual, you’re just always in your own head. Naturally, these chewy, fruity taffy candies are just what you need to bring a little fun to your day.
ARIES (MARCH 21 to APRIL 19)
Hot Tamales: You’re bold, fearless, and love to take risks, Aries, which means you’re more than on board with a handful of Hot Tamales. Seriously, as the most fire sign-y of all the fire signs, there’s no doubt you’d rather have something spicy than something sweet.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 to MAY 20)
Dove Promises: You’ll happily trade all your “fun mix” bars for a single Dove chocolate square, Taurus, since you know that quality always beats quantity. It’s true: You prefer your indulgences to be as luxurious as possible, and these creamy, chocolaty squares are a simple, sensual, not-in-the-least scary pleasure.
GEMINI (MAY 21 to JUNE 20)
Nerds: We mean this in the best way, Gemini. It’s just that you love learning so much, you’re the coolest nerd we know. These tiny sweet, tart, crunchy candies are a perfect accompaniment to your Halloween Wikipedia wanderings through the history of haunted houses.
CANCER (JUNE 21 to JULY 22)
Swedish Fish: Water dwellers unite, right, Cancer? You’ve got an affinity for anything oceanic, which means you’re definitely reaching for these cherry-flavored gummies come October. Plus, there’s just something so soothing about the perfectly chewy texture that only a Swedish Fish can provide.
LEO (JULY 23 to AUGUST 22)
Skittles: You’re the life of the party wherever you go, Leo, and everyone seems drawn to your warm demeanor and welcoming personality. Which is exactly why you should stock up on Skittles this Halloween season, since the only things more fun at a costume party than you are these fruit-flavored chewies.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 to SEPTEMBER 22)
Candy Corn: As a perfectionist-slash-purist, you like your cookies chocolate chip, your popsicles cherry, and your Halloween candy, well, corn. You’re of the mindset that if you’re going to do a holiday, you may as well do it the right way, which means indulging in its most festive offering — the humble, three-tiered candy corn.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 to OCTOBER 22)
Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins: It’s a scientific fact that peanut butter and chocolate is the most perfect flavor combination on Earth.* We know you’re all about that balance, Libra, which means you can really get down with one of these perfectly proportioned pumpkins. Plus, we know how much you hate making decisions, and this duo gives you the best of both worlds.
* Don’t look that up — just go with it.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 to NOVEMBER 21)
Dracula Teeth: If you could have it your way, Scorpio, every day would be Halloween. You’ve always been drawn to the darker, more mysterious side of life and don’t have a lot of time for sweet treats (seriously, just bring on the ghost stories please!). An old-fashioned pair of Dracula teeth is the perfect way to indulge your inner True Blood and get a few good Insta selfies in the process.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 to DECEMBER 21)
Now & Laters: You’ve got more energy than anyone we know, Sag, and you’re gonna need it to take on these super-chewy, dentist-nightmare Now & Laters. They’re super-long-lasting (hence the name), and it takes forever to work through a small package, which makes them the perfect travel companion for your next journey.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 to JANUARY 19)
M&M’s: Classic, simple, and steadfast — are we talking about you, Cap, or the ever-present M&M? The answer is both, of course. You favor traditional over modern and can’t understand why anyone would choose anything other than the best. When you commit, you commit, Cap, and these chocolates have been your ride-or-die since grade school.
