Halloween-Candy & Wine Pairings

by - 12:06 PM


If leaving your house on Halloween isn't so much your thing and you'd rather stay in watching Hocus Pocus, I totally get that. 

Below I've put together a Halloween survival guide for adults which includes 10 wine and candy pairings! 

Enjoy


M&MS: CABERNET SAUVIGNON

When it comes to chocolate, you can’t go wrong with a medium-bodied red. A great match for this candy whether you prefer the regular or peanut kind.
























REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP: PORT WINE

You’ll want something with a bit of acidity—but also sweetness—to balance the peanut butter filling.














KIT KAT: PROSECCO 

Crisp bubbles are the perfect match for crisp wafers. Plus, the citrus notes of the sparkling wine draw out the creamy flavors of the chocolate. Yum.

SNICKERS: WHITE ZINFANDEL

Mmmm, nougat topped with caramel and peanuts. You’ll need something nutty—with a hint of spice—to draw out the range of flavors packed into the bar.

SKITTLES: SAUVIGNON BLANC

The dry and zesty flavors cut right through the sweetness in this candy so you can really taste the rainbow.

STARBURST: Rosé

A Starburst deserves a fruit wine like rosé, the high acidity will help ease the chewiness of the candy while keeping the combination light and refreshing

SOUR PATCH KIDS: CHAMPAGNE

A candy this sour requires a chaser that’s acidic enough to cleanse your palate, but fancy enough to savor each bite.

RED LICORICE: Pinot noir

Pinot Noirs already have cherry undertones that make this pairing a no brainer. *Fun tip: bite off the ends of the Twizzlers and use it as a straw for the wine,  you'll find the flavors marry well.

CANDY CORN: CHARDONNAY

The buttery notes in this white wine mute the sugary taste of this Halloween favorite.

BUTTERFINGER: PINOT GRIGIO

The roasted peanut butter layer is sweet, which is why this wine (and its citrusy notes) is the perfect pair.
