Read all about our favorite candy! Happy Halloween from everyone at PageDaily!

I’m having a really hard time with this. I only eat healthy. But I suppose if you threatened to take away my Blackberry, I’d go with Reese’s.

Nancy Rotenier, Editor-in-Chief
It’s all about Baby Ruth. And Snickers. And 100,000 Grand. And Butterfinger. And candy corn. And and and. . . (please refer to my recent confessional blog post about my not-so-grownup eating habits!). My son said it best: “Mommy, all my teeth are sweet teeth.”

Dania Slochowski, Production Manager
Twix. Why? Because candy with too much caramel hurts your teeth. But Twix has a cookie in it, which adds the crisp and makes the perfect mix. It’s just right. 😉 And the mini ones are even better because you eat more and feel like you ate less!!!

Daniela Apeloig, Lifestyle Editor
Dove Chocolates OF COURSE! They come in the perfect portion, one square, perfect for the sweet tooth you need after the meals. Plus they have cute messages in the foil paper they are wrapped with that brighten your day.

Lindsay Leff, Assistant Beauty Editor
When I think of the most absolutely, deliciously perfect Halloween candy, it must consist of two things – peanut butter and chocolate. My obvious choice, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures! The best part, they’re bite size, so I can keep popping them without getting full…or maybe that’s bad?

Katrina Caspelich, Assistant Fashion Editor
Each year, I look forward to Easter—Cadbury Mini Eggs Easter Chocolate is hands down my favorite candy, so much so that I tend to finish an entire bag myself. There’s something so addictive about the crunchy, sugar shell and the smooth, chocolaty center. Definitely a match made in heaven.

Lindsay Hahn, Video Production Associate
Wait…I have to pick just one? Everyone at PageDaily can vouch that my sweet tooth does not discriminate between tasty treats! The proof is in my Top 5 Sweet Treats You Have To Try. If I had to choose just one though I would have to say Peanut M&Ms!

Colleen Hagerty, Video Production Associate
Favorite candy?! It really changes all the time, though I have to say right now I’m loving the secret stash of mini Reeses and Blowpops in my apartment.

Olivia Hayes, Office Manager
When I was a kid, I didn’t care about candy when I went trick or treating. Instead I would ask if the person had a dog, and if they did, I would ask to play with it. My mother was always mortified. My love for dogs started early. Now, I would have to say Cadbury fruit and nut tops my list.

Andrew Betsch, Videographer
Cherryheads, the most overlooked and underappreciated of Ferrara Pan’s delectable offerings.

Will Hall, Copy Editor
I’m a big fan of SweetTarts, those delicious little things that make you scrunch up your mouth as if you just bit into a lemon.

Kate Bryan, Social Media Intern
The little mini boxes of Junior Mints have got to be my favorite Halloween candy, so much so that I just bought a giant bag of them at the drug store despite the fact that we will clearly not get any trick-or-treaters at my apartment. I guess I’ll just have to eat them all myself!

Kimberly Hedmark, Marketing Intern
My all-time favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s because it is made of my two favorite things in life-chocolate and peanut butter. They have been, and always will be my weakness.

Noelle Mihalinec, Broadcast Intern
My favorite candy is York peppermint patties. I absolutely love the taste of mint and chocolate, it also leaves my breathe fresh. It has less calories than regular chocolate so if I eat more than three its okay!
