Whether you’re a mom, a dad or a fat guy buying loads of the stuff because you can get away with it this time of year without people looking at you sideways or asking a bunch of questions, chances are you’re going to be snacking on some Halloween candy in the not too distant future. And since we’re all adults here or at least kids who know where the adults hide the liquor, it’s important to know how to enjoy two of the world’s greatest creations together as one. So in that spirit (See what I did there?), here are 7 Wines to Sip with Your Favorite Halloween Treats.
There are suggestions here for Kit Kat, Hershey’s Kisses, Candy Corn which is horrible and I don’t know how people eat it, Snicker’s, Sour Patch Kids, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and even one of my favourite candies of all time, Skittles!
Wine: 2010 Royal Tokaji Mad Cuvée from Hungary ($20)
This dessert wine — with notes of “pineapple, apricots and honey” — pairs nicely with each sweet flavor of the Skittles rainbow.
Bottoms up, and bottoms expanding.
