Defend Your Favorite Halloween Candy In A HuffPost Deathmatch

Defend your favorite loot on America's biggest candy night of the year.

Most of us can name what we consider to be the worst Halloween candy off the tops of our heads. We could argue for days about what we consider to be the best Halloween candy. Favorite Halloween candy is a topic we always forget people get so passionate about, until someone disagrees with someone else's favorite and all hell breaks loose. In the spirit of safety and loving one another, we're going to let you duke it out on HuffPost Taste this year instead.

We chose eight of the most commonly named favorite Halloween candies of all time to participate in this deathmatch, but this was definitely an occasion when we wished we could build a 16-seed bracket. If we missed your favorite Halloween candy, let us know about it in the comments!

Here's how the Best Halloween Candy Deathmatch voting will go down:

  • Round One voting opens October 15th -- vote right now!
  • Wednesday, October 16th at 12:00am Eastern, Round Two begins.
  • Thursday, October 17th at 12:00am Eastern, you'll be able to vote in Round Three.
  • Friday morning, October 18th, we'll announce which Halloween Candy wins the title.

Good luck to all the candies, and may the best toothache-maker win.
