You are what you eat: What your Halloween candy says about you

halloween-candy-blog

Different occasions call for celebrations and celebrations call for a feast, but when it comes to Halloween, there’s only one treat we all love to indulge in — candies! Regular treats, however, are a tad bit overrated and when even the normally loved Tootsie Rolls makes it to the most hated Halloween candy list, you know it’s time for a change…just like what you do to become a better (or worse) version of yourself.

Because it’s Halloween, let’s steer away from the rainbow-sprinkled sweet path and take instead the macabre route to (re)discovering your persona. And because it’s Halloween, there’s no better way to tell you who you are than by your favorite candy bars.

This is what happens when you have nothing else but candy corns and Cowtales (and Tootsie Rolls!) in your house.

“Normal” is a taboo word in the Halloween dictionary, and because we’re going with the popular belief that you are defined by your diet, we won’t just go with the regular gummy bears and jelly beans (or Tootsie Rolls for that matter).

We, however, have to warn you that some of the stuff you’re going to read are not for the faint of heart. Although there’s nothing we can do if the most stomach-churning of them all nailed your character, you can still save yourself by choosing which ones to dole out to your dear trick-or-treaters. Let us remind you that Halloween hath no fury like a dissatisfied bunch of neighborhood kids — we don’t want to be responsible for the “uncool” reputation you’ll reap or the teepeeing and egging your house might get.

Excited to find out what does your candy says about your Halloween self? Take your pick and we’ll give you the answers!
