Your house will be a hit with trick-or-treaters this year

Eliza McGowen

If you have the outdoor space where you hand out candy we recommend getting string lights with orange and black bulbs to truly set the mood.

It's nearly Halloween, which means you should have your decorations up and a plan in place for what candy you're going to give out. If there are a lot of kids in your neighborhood then you probably have stiff competition for who has the best candy. Fortunately for you, we have recommendations for the treats that will make your home a favorite stop. From full-sized candy bars to unique giveaways, check out what we think will be the hit this year.

Full-sized candy bars

We bet you can still remember who gave out the full-sized candy bars in your neighborhood when you were a kid. As a trick-or-treater there are few things more exciting than reaching in to find the big ones. Now you can bring that same joy to your neighborhood. We recommend going with the classic Hershey varieties.

Sour candy

You could go a different route with sour candy. There are a substantial amount of kids who don't like chocolate or can't have it. You can be their hero by handing out candies from this Sourlicious assortment from Brach's. There are more than five different types of candies and over 200 individual bags, so you can rest assured that you won't run out.

Hershey's Gold

You can stay hip to the latest candy releases by handing out Hershey's newest installment in their candy line - Hershey's Gold. They're caramel creme flavored with bits of pretzels and peanuts mixed in, a dream for anyone who loves to combine sweet and salty.

Kinder chocolate

If you've ever lived or traveled abroad then you probably have heard of Kinder chocolates. These tasty bars mix together chocolate and hazelnut flavors, like in Nutella. No one can resist the deliciousness of the classic Kinder Buenos - and now you can bring them to the States in this pack of minis - perfect for doling out to the kiddos.

Pirate's Booty

It may seem like an oddly healthy choice, but kids go crazy for this popped treat. Pirate's Booty baked aged white cheddar puffs are made of corn and rice, and free of gluten, artificial ingredients, preservatives, and artificial colors. Each bag has six individual packs, but we suspect you'll need several - especially if you treat on some while passing out the goodies.
