What's Your Favorite Halloween Candy?

We hit the mean streets of social media to ask Central Oregonians about their favorite Halloween treats



Trick or treat! That three-word phrase brings joy to so many people year after year. People wear their favorite costumes throughout the night while collecting mass amounts of candy and chocolate. Then at the end of the night you go through the night's collection with your friends to see who had the best haul... but what's best to one might not be the best to another.

For this (digital) Street Beat, we wanted to see what candy would get people the most excited if they found one in their candy bag. Here are some of the best responses we got.
