Every year our kids dress up and knock on strangers’ doors and ask for candy. Free candy! They just walk up and people they’ve never met before give them sweet treats, it’s arguably the best idea ever. We could complain that they don’t always get the candy we want, and sometimes it’s not even candy! Apples, pretzels, potato chips, and sometimes some loose change they have sitting around the house, what’s wrong with these people?

If you could choose your favorite what would it be?

According to a study by Coventry Direct, New Jersey’s overall favorite is Raisinettes. I always hoped for a Zagnut, but that’s another story. I say Zagnut is my favorite, but according to the New York Post, being a Scorpio the stars say it’s not.

The Zodiac is divided into twelve signs…

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18), PISCES (February 19 to March 20), ARIES (March 21 to April 19), TAURUS (April 20 to May 20), GEMINI (May 21 to June 20), CANCER (June 21 to July 22), LEO (July 23 to August 22), VIRGO (August 23 to September 22), LIBRA (September 23 to October 22), SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21), SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21), and CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19).

Here’s what they say your favorite candy SHOULD be based on your Zodiac sign…

    “Aquarius is commonly associated with innovation and cosmic exploration. Fittingly, M&Ms were developed as a war ration. Their candy case prevents the chocolate from melting in the pockets of soldiers”


    nestle crunch

    Described as the “music to your mouth,” Pisceans are soothed by its sound. It’s like Rice Krispies cereal cemented in a chocolate casing. Snap, crackle, pop, crunch.

    Snickers bars are made by Mars Inc. and the Mars family named it after their pet horse. Marketing experts would reject that today. You need to research potential names, focus groups and surveys. Not for Snickers.


    Butterfinger bars

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA – FEBRUARY 18: Nestle Butterfinger candy bars are displayed on a shelf at a convenience store on February 18, 2015 in San Francisco, California. Nestle USA announced plans to remove all artificial flavors and FDA-certified colors from its entire line of chocolate candy products, including the popular Butterfinger and Baby Ruth candy bars, by the end of 2015.

    Bart and Homer Simpson said, “No one better lay a finger on my Butterfinger.” Tauruses are possessive so it all makes sense. Food that is named after a body part. Finger seems to be a popular name, just ask the chickens and ladies. There’s even a group of eats called “finger food.”

    Gemini is represented by twins, and Twix comes in twos. It’s got a great combo of sweets. Cookies, caramel and chocolate, delicious!


    100 Grand candy bar

    “The 100 Grand Bar has been the subject of many a radio prank. Announcers offering callers $100,000 and delivering a single bar instead. It has even been plot points in episodes of “The Office” and “Seinfeld.” That product placement sold a lot of candy.


    candy apples

    They’re crunchy and delicious. Leos love their shiny appearance which garners attention which they love. One a day keeps the doctor away unless the doctor is a dentist.

    Kit Kat was named after a London club with strong literary and political ties. The candy debuted “during Virgo season in 1935.” My dad turns 88 next month and the Kit-Kat has just barely been around his entire life. 


    reese's peanut butter cups

    This is the most popular candy in most circles. It allegedly came about by accident when two people, one eating chocolate and one eating peanut butter, bumped into one another causing their snacks to collide. They were about to kill one another when they both realized the discovery they made.


    candy corn

    As a lifelong Scorpio, I’m not sure I agree with this. If I haven’t mentioned it, my fave is Zagnut. However, astrologically speaking, I love candy corn.


    Mr. Goodbar

    “Sagittarius is the eternal optimist of the zodiac…you can’t keep these people down or out…Mr. Goodbar was… [used]…as a way to keep the company afloat and employees at work during the Great Depression.” The story goes that someone in product development said, “That’s a good bar.” Milton Hershey heard that and decided on the name.

    I’m not sure I completely understand this. Apparently Capricorns hand out toothbrushes at Halloween because they “rule over the teeth.” I think the lesson here is, “Stay away from Capricorns on October 31st.
