2020's Halloween Candy Wine Pairings


One of my favorite lists every year is the Halloween candy/wine pairings. Vivino.com has been coming up with this list for the past five years. For this year, the recommend:

Hershey's Glow in the Dark Milk Chocolate bars with Syrah

Glow in the Dark Kit Kats with Pino Noir

Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkin cups with Gamay (said to taste like PB&J)

Sour Patch Kids with Riesling

Skittles with Sauvignon Blanc

Starburst with Moscato D'Asti

Snickers with Cabernet Sauvignon

Are you seeing the palates? Chocolate candy pairs best with reds while straight sugar candy with a sour taste pairs best with white wines. It would appear that the more sour candies pair with dry wines while the more sweet, fruity candies pair with sweeter whites.

Enjoy!!
