You could say we believe very strongly in the powers hidden within our zodiac sign. We check our Daily Horoscope app first thing when we wake up in the morning. We own The Secret Language of Relationships so we can see our compatibility with everyone we meet. We cross-reference fertility dates to ensure we won’t wind up giving birth to an Aries. Y’know. The usual!
But one of the zodiac’s most powerful predictors? Our ideal Halloween candy. Believe it or not, those little nuggets of astrological wisdom directly translate to your literal tastes. No more stammering in the seasonal aisle of Rite Aid; no more deliberating for five minutes over the contents of a treat bowl. Here, we present the perfect Halloween candy for your zodiac sign.
Aries = Hot Tamales
Aries are known for being adventurous, energetic, confident, and dynamic. So of course they gravitate towards the spiciest, boldest, most daring candy on the block: Hot Tamales.
Taurus = Full-Size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup
Tauruses are known for being loving and indulgent, with luxurious tastes. Watch them opt for that classically sinful combination of peanut butter and chocolate — the full-size ones, natch.
Gemini = Nerds
Geminis are known for being youthful, quirky, inquisitive, and super-smart. They’re always up for some brightly colored fun, and the sugary crunch of tangy Nerds gives them the rush they love.
Cancer = Sour Patch Kids
Cancers are known for being emotional, imaginative, shrewd, and moody. Sour Patch Kids — with their mercurial sharp-sweet flavor — are basically Cancers in candy form.
Leo = Twix
Leos are known for being creative, sensual, generous, and bossy. The two-for-one package of decadent caramel cookies is perfect if they want to share — or doubly perfect if not.
Virgo = Hershey’s Minis
Virgos are known for being modest, meticulous, practical, and conservative. Ever wondered who was buying the variety pack of Hershey’s minis? It’s good ol’ reliable, traditional Virgo.
Libra = Haribo Gold-Bears
Libras are known for being easygoing, sociable, charming, and flirtatious. No zodiac sign is more fun — and no candy is cuter or more lovable than the classic baby Haribo bears.
Scorpio = Twizzlers
Scorpios are known for being passionate, magnetic, powerful, and obsessive. Licorice is a documented aphrodisiac, and the candy-red color of Twizzlers evokes a visceral response.
Sagittarius = Skittles
Sagittariuses are known for being good-humored, optimistic, and carefree, so it’s no surprise that they love to taste the rainbow — Skittles are one of the most joyous candies around.
Capricorn = Gobstoppers
Capricorns are known for being prudent, patient, reserved, and a bit miserly. One Gobstopper will last ‘em as long as ten tiny candy bars — and they’ll enjoy every minute of it.
Aquarius = Whoppers
Aquariuses are known for being original, inventive, unpredictable, and detached. The malt-filled Whoppers are always unexpected and cause a strong reaction — just how Aquariuses like it.
Pisces = Starburst
Pisces are known for being imaginative, escapist, and idealistic. Starburst — that chewy, fruity, perennial favorite — offers the quick moment of sweet daydreaming every Pisces seeks.
