As adults, the Halloween magic tends to fade, but there’s no need to let that happen. We can still have just as much fun as our children do. Celebrate this spooky season by treating yourself to a glass or two of wine and your favorite Halloween candy.
Use this guide to help you find the perfect wine and candy pairings.
Candy Corn & Prosecco
You either love or you hate this traditional Halloween candy, but candy corn pairs wonderfully with Prosecco. Prosecco will help tone down the sweetness of candy corn while also enhancing its flavors.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups & Cabernet Sauvignon
The dark fruit flavors of a Cabernet Sauvignon complement the nuttiness of the peanut butter while pairing well with the chocolate of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
Hershey Bar & Pinot Noir
A melt-in-your-mouth chocolate like a Hershey Bar goes so well with a medium-bodied fruity red wine like a Pinot Noir. The fruit notes really complement the gooey chocolate.
Skittles & Rosé
An off-dry rosé pairs perfectly when tasting the rainbow fruit flavors of Skittles. You can also do a sparkling rosé if you’re a fan of bubbles.
Snickers & Tawny Port
The hint of caramel in a Snickers is what makes a tawny port the perfect wine to pair it with. A tawny port really holds up to the strong peanut, chocolate, and caramel flavors in Snickers.
Sour Gummies & Sauvignon Blanc
The mouth-puckering taste of a sour gummy calls for a juicy fruit-centric wine. The zesty citrus notes in a Sauvignon Blanc balances while complementing the sourness of these candies..
M&Ms & Merlot
The milk chocolate and hard candy coating of an M&M pair so well with the velvety tannins of a Merlot, as it offers a smooth finish to the sweet chocolate.
Kit Kat & Pinot Noir
Pour yourself a glass of Pinot Noir while breaking off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar. The bold cherry and plum notes of the Pinot will make this wafer candy taste like a chocolate-covered cherry.
Starburst & Moscato
A light Moscato brings out all the fruity, citrusy flavors of each color of Starburst. So whether your favorite is pink or yellow, Moscato will pair perfectly.
