The best Halloween candy, without room for debate or discussion, is easily Peanut M&M’s. Every Halloween, regardless of my age, I am filled with the familiar joy upon noticing the yellow wrapper signifying the gifting of Peanut M&M’s.

The combination of sweet and savory creates a perfectly harmonious combination which blesses the Halloween of countless children around the world. Lightly salted, crunchy peanuts are generously wrapped in a smooth, subtly sweet milk chocolate, perfectly illustrating the saying opposites attract. Chocolate and peanuts are more an iconic duo than peanut butter and jelly.

Peanut M&M’s resolve every internal dilemma caused by the boring task of indulging in regular, uninteresting chocolate M&M’s. The colorful candy coating was a feeble attempt to spark interest in the otherwise average chocolate candy. Peanut M&M’s, however, combine both the colorful decorations- sometimes even carrying a color scheme- with the surprising flavor and texture juxtaposition.

This Halloween, do not gravitate towards the boring slab of chocolate presented in Hershey’s bars, the sticky mess of artificial fruit flavor called Starbursts, or the strange mess of candy packaged as a Crunch bar. Instead, indulge yourself in the God-given gift of Peanut M&M’s
