Top Ten Best Candies

The Top Ten

1 Skittles

SKITTLES are awesome in my world its illegal to spell SKITTLES with out all capitals!

It's like tasting the rainbow in your mouth, all you think about is happiness and unicorns and...I like the sour ones the best though!

I think skittles are better because they are just sweet in your mouth I like to suck on them because I can taste the flavor more longer.

2 Twix

The reason they have 2 in a packet is because once you have one you need another one

It is so good. Because it has that flavor that I want.

I love all of the candies here. So I imagined all of them on a table and I could chose one and only one and I chose the Twix - yumbacon

It’s my fave

3 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


Greatest candy ever way better than any other candy best ever. No other can compare.

Yep, best candy ever. The chocolate and the peanut butter are flavors that go really well together, and the crunchy casing and soft filling are even better together. Imagine unwrapping that brown paper and taking that bite into the chocolate casing and finding soft peanut butter inside. Man, writing that made me want one of these... - Vic21102

They are the best when they are frozen

4 M&Ms

M&Ms are truly the best candy alive! My favorite flavored are milk chocolate, dark chocolate and pretzel. Love their Super Bowl commercials as well and will always eat them at "that kind of party". Chocolate is definitely better in color (especially orange! )!

M&M's are a classic, no doubt about it. Whenever I purchase a plain chocolate bar, I devour it much too fast. M&M's is like having the greatness of chocolate, but without the guilt of eating it so quickly.

Honestly, I would much prefer the other candies on here to m and ms. they are classic, don't get me wrong, but there are just better candies now

These are my favorites because the plain ones are really the only candy I know doesn't have nuts or peanuts in it due to allergies. (Note that peanuts are legumes, not tree nuts)

5 Sour Patch Kids Sour Patch Kids

Yum! I love Sour Patch Kids so if someone is holding a contest to see who can eat the most sign me up!

I ride up to 7/11 almost everyday and I get these along with a Monster Energy.

First their sour than their sweet.

I EAT THESE EVERY DAY. And By the Way I think they are the best candy sorry sour patch haters and skittles lovers

6 Gummy Bears

Gummy Bears are the best candy ever they are meant for all ages, if you are old and you don't have teeth you can smack on them, if you are a toddler you can break them apart and suck on them. Plus you can eat them no matter what because they are healthy like fruit snacks.

Gummy bears are life!

I could eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner

Gummy bears are better than any other candy

Gummy bears are the best because they have just the right amount of moisture and taste. And by the way they are my favorite.

-I’m suffering in an airport after a bad sandwich and a six hour delay.
Mom: “I bought gummy bears”

7 Snickers

When I first tasted Snickers I thought that no such candy could ever exist. That was years ago. I still adore Snickers. Just imagine: a quite place, a good book and a bar of Snickers. What else can one wants?

My favorite candy besides Hershey bars. If your allergic to caramel, I'd fell real bad for you

Nothing will ever beat snickers! Ever! - MHMcDonald

Snickers is by far the best candie in the U.S. BY FAR

8 Kit Kat

Its shape makes it so easy to share and they taste amazing

I love kit kats, couldn't be anything better!

At least my favorite candy is in the top 20. 15 is not so bad. Am I right?

This is by far the best candy

9 Hershey Bar

Hershey bars are everywhere! I wish my mom could buy them for me every time we would walk past them..

10 Jolly Ranchers Jolly Ranchers Jolly Rancher is a brand of sweet, somewhat tangy or sour/sweet hard candy, gummies, fruit chews, jelly beans, lollipops, gelatin desserts, gum, and sodas.

They taste like skittles but better

They are just plain awesome.

Jolly ranchers are the BEST they come in all sorts of discord and you don't have to chew them you can suck on them if you want!

I LOVE JOLLY RANCHER one time my brother ate all of them and I got nothing I got so mad I got in trouble for screaming at him lol

The Newcomers

? Peeps
? Gum Drops Gum Drops

The Contenders

11 Starburst Starburst Starburst is the brand name of a box-shaped, fruit-flavored soft taffy candy manufactured by The Wrigley Company, a subsidiary of Mars, Incorporated.

People are dumb and inconsiderate to not choose starburst. Best fruit candy by a longshot only thing close is jolly ranchers or skittles although I hate when skittles stain your hands when their wet and when they're crushed they look gross

I am surprised to see Jolly Ranchers above Starburst. Everyone I know always preferred these. - BKAllmighty


So yummy, chewy like gum, the yummy of chocolate

12 Mike and Ikes

Delicious, But did you know that they're coated with bug juice?

They make Skittles look like poop

The best!

13 Nerds

In my opinion, this is the best candies ever!... I bought 45 rainbow nerds boxes. Nerds are the best candies that I ate in my life. I eat one box every week. Sometimes my food for dinner is nerds! I used 100$ of my money (50 boxes) just to by nerds in the store! I even eating it today!

YUM YUM YUM! Nerds should be at the top! They are so sour and sweet and have no particular shape in mind. I wish I could just swim in Nerds!

They come in all different sizes and colors and are great for anytime. They are the sour I am looking for but I don't pass out from the flavor

My favorite

14 Reese's Pieces

I'm overjoyed that this made the top 15. Reese's Pieces used to be my go-to candy, and can't you see why? It's smooth, creamy peanut butter. Now I find myself eating Hot Tamales, Almond Joys, and Junior Mints because I'm constantly craving new flavors. But I will always love these.

Is my number 1 candy of all time. It should be yours if you like peanut butter!

Not as good as the real thing. It tastes great, but Reese's is greatEST.

Better than skittles in my opinion

These are good

Most amazing candy in the world

16 Warheads

I agree that they are sour. But I believe that warheads are more meant for the sour experience more than the flavor or taste I should say. After eating a couple my tongue begins to swell with sores. Makes me wonder what they use to make them.

If you eat about 3 warheads your brain bleed I'm not kidding search it up

Warheads sure are something. They are sour as heck but when you eat one without spitting it out you feel very accomplished haha - heiglsbabe

One word AMAZING

17 3 Musketeers

I personally think 3 musketeers should be rated higher than number 15. It should be top 5 at least. But this is just my opinion and no one should be offended by my choice in thinking that it should be rated higher.

I love how the chocolate just melts in your mouth. The inside is so moist and chewy. Nothing can top it!

One time my cleaning lady ate my big bar of 3 musketeers that I got from halloween and I got so mad and I never look at her the same. They are just to good!

18 Airheads Airheads AirHeads are a tangy, taffy-like, chewy candy manufactured by Dutch-Italian company Perfetti Van Melle in Erlanger, Kentucky, USA.

Does anyone actually know why they're called Airheads? I always thought it was a kind of bubble-gum that I didn't know how to chew properly as a kid. - BKAllmighty

Airheads make me feel like an airhead when I eat too much..

How are they on # 15? They should at least be at a solid 6

19 Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans are awesome they have different flavors so they don't always taste the same.

I love those candy stores with like 60 jelly belly flavors they are so good. - Ilyas678

How on Earth is this so low? Jelly bellys are the best candy ever and there are so many different flavors. This needs to be higher. - BigEJ52

Oh, man did I ever buy these a lot as a kid. Always the blue one too. Used to get called 'Blue Lips'. So I stopped buying them once the nickname started to stick. - BKAllmighty

I used to get these everyday when I was younger. You can wear them on your fingers. I still eat ring-pops though. Whoever invented ring pops, you are my hero. - Catacorn
