The Signs as Halloween Candy

With Halloween soon approaching, now’s the time to find out which Halloween candy fits your zodiac sign…


Aries (March 21-April 19) 

Bold and ambitious, Aries are always up for a new challenge. They enjoy having fun and will do anything for a dare. Their lively and outgoing personality pairs perfectly with Pop Rocks, a candy unique in its bold packaging and popping candies. With their daring attitude, it would be no surprise to hear an Aries has tried almost every flavor of this candy.


Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Seeing as Taureses enjoy calm and peace, it feels natural that these Earth signs would pair well with a classic candy: a Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar. Hershey bars are an original in terms of Halloween candy, their classic chocolate flavor is still a favorite despite the rise of newer, fruity candies, like Skittles and Sour Patch Kids. While decades have passed since the release of the Hershey Chocolate Bar, the chocolate flavor remains the same, pairing well with Tauruses’ distaste for big change.

Gemini (May 21- June 21) 

Sociable and charming, Geminis appreciate trying new things. Their many interests make it clear that Dum Dum Lollipops–with a wide variety of flavors ranging from “Lemon-Lime” to “Rootbeer” to “Cotton Candy”–are an appropriate pairing. A favorite since 1924, Dum Dum Lollipops are unique in that they have a mystery-flavored lollipop in every pack, a potential symbol of a Gemini’s curious and outgoing personality. 


Cancer (June 22- July 22) 

Despite seeming distant at first, Cancers are empathetic and caring people once they break out of their shells. Their tendency to seek comfort pairs perfectly with M & M’s, a candy complete with its own candy-shell. Even a cancer’s loyal nature aligns with M&M’s long-lasting presence as a Halloween favorite. 


Leo (July 23- August 22) 

Creative and bold, Leo’s love of the spotlight is no surprise. They’re lively and animated, making Nerds the perfect candy for them. From the unique candy shape to the bubbly packaging, Nerds’ big personality stands out, just like a Leo’s. 


Virgo (August 23- September 22)

Perfectionists at heart, Virgos appreciate symmetry, making a Kit Kat—with its snappable, chocolate-coated wafers— the candy for them. Their tendency to be practical and logical makes the predictable bar shape of a Kit Kat even more appropriate.  


Libra (September 23- October 23)

Libras’ appreciation of balance and harmony lends perfectly with the popular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is a perfect balance of flavors. Plus, Libras are stylistic and creative people, making the unique crinkle-shaped edge of a peanut butter cup a perfect fit for them. 


Scorpio (October 24- November 21) 

Passionate and playful, Scorpios often love to joke around, fitting perfectly with Sour Patch Kids. This sour gummy candy is playful and colorful, complete with fun shapes and bright colors. Scorpios lighthearted energy is clearly reflected in Sour Patch Kids. 


Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

Sagittarii are an adventurous and bubbly sign, the kind of people who are always down to have a good time. Therefore, it would only be appropriate for them to be paired with the one-of-a-kind fruity candy: sour gummy worms. From the playful worm shape to the sour flavor, it is clear that sour gummy worms are an appropriate fit. 


Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorns, with their mature character and determined attitude, would pair best with a classic flavor, such as chocolate, rather than a fruity or sour flavor. Their desire to be focused blends perfectly with York Peppermint Patties, a candy known for its distinct taste and pure minty center. 


Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

Free-spirited and eccentric, Aquarians tend to follow a non-conformist attitude, just like their signature candy: Fun Dip. Breaking all the typical “candy rules”, Fun Dip consists of a flavored sugar powder and an edible candy stick, a tasty and sweet vehicle for bringing the sugary powder straight to your mouth. Despite having no delicate candy shell nor unpredictable sour flavors, no other candy quite compares to the unusual, yet enticing design of Fun Dip. 


Pisces (February 19- March 20) 

Pisces are creative and artistic people with great imaginations. Naturally,  they would pair perfectly with Starbursts. From the creative name to the bright colors, it is clear Starbursts are a fantastical candy, fitting well with a Pisces’ imaginative and romantic personality.
