The Existential Truth About Halloween

Halloween isn't just about pumpkin memes, awesomely decorated breweries, or dogs trotting around in Trent Crimm, The Independent costumes. There's a darker, more serious side of Halloween. An existential question that haunts us all. What is the best Halloween Candy?


Well if you believe the geniuses on the interwebs, M&M's are the most popular candy this year, followed by Reese's, Kit Kats, and... hold the phone. Is that Candy Corn coming in at #8? We know the world is in a dark and scary place right now, but the evil that is Candy Corn can't possibly have risen that high.


We have to narrow the focus. Candystore.com crunched some numbers and figured out the most popular candy in every state. We won't even talk about the weirdos in AZ, ND, and VA who love Hot Tamales. In PA, no surprise, we are a Hershey state. Specifically, a Hershey Mini Bar state.


But we'll need to drill down even further, won't we? Because there are 4 different kinds of Hershey minis. And how you rank them probably says a lot about your personality, like taking a Myers-Briggs test or sitting under the Sorting Hat. Let's review:


Krackel - way better than Nestle Crunch, amirite?

Special Dark - probably Slytherin House

Milk Chocolate - basic, but beautiful

Mr. Goodbar - historical note: Even Milton Hershey wasn't sure about Mr. Goodbar. Rather than put the Hershey name on these, he initially labelled them as being made by the Chocolate Sales Corporation, a totally fake company.


So, what's the best bar?

Why, Barley Creek Brewing Company, of course.
