Peanut butter cups 

  • Ruby port. The sweet, rich flavors of ruby port will meld great with the chocolate and peanut butter combination. 

Twizzlers

  • Pinot Noir. Since Twizzlers are one of the less intense flavored Halloween candies you’ll encounter, reach for a more delicately flavored. Bright cherry, raspberry, and earthy flavors will be a delicious compliment to Twizzlers.

 Snickers

  • With so many flavors and textures in Snickers, you’ll need a wine that can stand up to it – a high alcohol Syrah that already has aromas of chocolate, tobacco, spice, and stewed fruit is the go-to here.  

 Starburst

  • Beaujolais Nouveau with its high acidity and low tannins, notes of bubblegum, strawberry, and banana, will pair great with the flavors of Starburst.

 Skittles

  • Riesling. High acidity and sweetness will match perfectly with these sweet, fruity chewy candies. 

Butterfingers

  • Chardonnay. A luscious buttery Chardonnay will meet the rich and layered flavors of Butterfingers.
