Starburst are obviously the best candy for Halloween because there’s no beating all those tangy, fruity flavors like strawberry, cherry, lemon and orange to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.

They’re individually wrapped, have a variety of flavor types (like Original, Sour, Tropical, FaveReds Very Berry, SuperFruit) and the packaging promotes sharing and portion control. Plus, you can make the wax wrappers into chains. Once a sixteen-year-old girl had been collecting Starbursts wrappers since she was thirteen and she made her prom dress out of all of them.

The Wrigley Company also makes different types of Starbursts like Starburst Fruit Chews, Starburst Minis, Starburst Jellybeans, and Starburst GummiBursts so there’s many different ones to choose from. Starbursts also have real fruit juice in them and 50% of your recommended daily/dietary allowance of Vitamin C. They also don’t melt easily like chocolate would. They come in small pieces (about the size of a cubic inch) so you can still have a lot of them in your trick-or-treating bag and they won’t take up much room.

Starbursts were also rumored to start the Poptarts movement…and who doesn’t like Poptarts? Overall Starbursts take the W for Halloween treats, you can’t beat them.
