Best Wine to Pair with Different Halloween Candies

The Best Wine to Pair with Six Halloween Candies


 Once your kids are in bed, the question is . . . what type of WINE goes best with their Halloween candy?  Here are six candies, and the best wine to pair with each one . . .


1.  Butterfinger.  Try it with a buttery chardonnay.  The flavors go best with a white wine.  Ideally one that's medium-bodied.


2.  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  Try a Lambrusco.  It's a sweet wine that goes well with peanut butter for the same reason jelly does.


3.  Kit Kats, or anything that's mostly about the chocolate.  Go with a Pinot Noir or a Syrah.  Definitely something red.


4.  Candy corn.  Pop a bottle of champagne or Prosecco.  Apparently the waxiness of the candy corn goes well with bubbles.  (???)


5.  Snickers.  Go with a deep, rich Syrah.  It goes well with chocolate and nuts.


 6.  Starburst, Nerds, or anything else that's straight sugar.  Pair it with a dry Riesling, or a dry rosé.  You're already getting enough sugar, so you don't want anything too sweet.
