Remember tearing through your Halloween basket on the kitchen floor after trick or treating? Or maybe you set up a trading business with your friends for their chocolate goodies and your sour sweets. No matter what, we all have our favorite trick-or-treating hacks, and we’ll always be loyal to our favorite Halloween candy. Here at WineNight, we’re also wine loyalists and know that no candy raid is complete without some wine. This year, we’re helping you step up your game and win at adulting with these Halloween candy and wine pairings, because yes, you’re welcome.
Nothing kicks off the spooky celebrations like candy corn and Prosecco (pro tip: bubbles mellow out candy corn’s overly sweet, yet addictive taste!) Love red wine? Guess who else does? Chocolate-y delicious mini Snickers that will really satisfy you.
1. Prosecco + Candy Corn
An effervescent glass of Prosecco goes a long way with a handful of this sugary treat.
2. Rosé + Starburst
The pink ones, obviously.
3. Skittles + Madeira
Madeira, with its range of sweet to dry flavors, is perfect with the taste of the rainbow.
4. Tootsie Roll + Syrah
The chewy, chocolate-y caramel treat goes best with a big, red Syrah. Spooky right?
5. Twix + Vin Santo
Whether you’re a left or right Twix bar fan, you can’t go wrong with a glass of Vin Santo.
6. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups + Lambrusco
Just like a PB&J, Lambrusco and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups always taste best when they’re together.
7. Butterfinger + Chardonnay
Nobody can lay a finger on our Butterfinger (and Chardonnay).
8. Hershey’s + Pinot Noir
These two classics walk into a party. And the rest is history.
9. Pixie Sticks + Moscato
The sweet flavors of nectarine, peach and orange of Moscato help balance the sweet and sour licks of Pixie Sticks.
10. Gummy Bears (Soaked!) + Champagne
The ULTIMATE adult Halloween hack. Toss those gummies in your Champagne overnight for a tasty bite of bubbly bears.
