The Halloween-Themed Candy You Are, Based on Zodiac Sign
Although it's hard to pick a favorite part of Halloween, the spooky treats have to rank pretty high on the list.
Renditions of our fave classic sweets and some seasonally-specific favorites turn the candy shelves of every store into a Halloween paradise during the fall months. And while we love all this candy equally, we also know that certain candies are much more symbolic of our personalities than others. How can we know this? Because the stars said so.
Keep scrolling for the Halloween-themed candy you are, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Oozing Marshmallow Eyeballs
As the first sign in the zodiac, you're known for being energetic and aggressive, Aries. You have a very enthusiastic personality, so if you're going to do something, you're going to do it all out. A simple pumpkin-shaped candy isn't going to work for you—oh, no. You need something a little more committed to the Halloween spirit. You're definitely Oozing Marshmallow Eyeballs—the most in-your-face of all the Halloween treats. These sickeningly sweet marshmallows are filled with a fruit-flavored jelly just waiting to be squeezed out. Much like you, Aries, they're a candy you can't just gloss over, making them your perfect Halloween treat.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Black Licorice
You're one of the most reliable signs in all the zodiac, Taurus. You have a habit of stubbornly sticking to your decisions no matter what, which can be both a good and a bad thing. You're totally black licorice. While some people would agree that black licorice is the worst candy ever invented, it just keeps coming back. It knows it has a small base of people who will always stand up for it, so it stubbornly continues to sit on the shelves of groceries stores around the world. Black licorice totally embodies your stable and uncompromising personality, Taurus, making it the perfect candy to represent you this Halloween.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Twizzler Orange & Black Cherry Pull 'n' Peel
Curious little Gemini, you have quite the complicated personality. While you tend to get serious and thoughtful sometimes, you base most of your actions off a general feeling that there just isn't enough time to do everything you want to accomplish. Although you're social and fun-loving, your inquisitive nature means that you get bored fairly easily. Twizzlers Orange & Black Cherry Pull 'n' Peel are the perfect candy for you, Gemini. Not only are they new on the market this year, they're also slightly more time-consuming to eat. You can pull apart each individual strand, eat the flavors separately or simply down the whole thing in one gulp. Whatever you do decide to do, there's plenty here to contain your nervous energy, even if it's just for a little while.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Peeps Halloween Ghosts
Ah, our emotional little Cancer—you're an incredibly sentimental sign. You get weepy and nostalgic over the simplest of things always, so why would Halloween be any different? You're definitely Peeps Halloween Ghosts, Cancer. They may not be the most flavorful or original spooky treat, but they remind you of your childhood, when you were content to eat bland marshmallows covered in sugar. Tie some emotional bonds to anything, Cancer, and you're guaranteed to be on board, which is why these yummy ghosts are the perfect treat to capture your personality.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Glow-in-the-Dark Kit Kat
Cheerful, generous and self-confident, you love to be in the spotlight, Leo. As a Sun sign, you have an energy and magnetism that just draws people to you, and your happy demeanor means you can light up any room. The perfect candy for you is the Glow-in-the-Dark Kit Kat, obviously. Much like your glowing personality allows you to stand out in a crowd, this light-up treat will definitely set it itself apart in your candy basket. It's the perfect symbol for your personality, Leo. Not to mention it's just plain delicious.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Sour Punch Bats & Pumpkins
Although you're generally shy and unassuming, you can definitely pack a punch, Virgo. You have a tendency to be overly critical about everything in your life, and you're not afraid of voicing your concerns if you feel something's wrong. Sour Punch Bats & Pumpkins are the perfect description for your personality. One minute you're sweet and reserved, just trying to accomplish your work for the day, and the next you're sourly explaining to everyone how everything they've done is wrong. You just have very mixed expectations, Virgo—these Sour Punch treats totally get it.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins
You're all about keeping the peace, Libra. Balance and equality are very important to you, but you'll do practically whatever it takes to avoid conflict. That means you're not one to step out of bounds very often, which sounds a whole lot like Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins. They're basically just a normal Reese's, but in a pumpkin shape, so they can officially be declared Halloween-themed. After all, why would you veer away from a classic recipe that you already know people love? It sounds very similar to your life motto of just going with the flow, Libra, making this your ideal Halloween treat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Cadbury Screme Egg
You're a difficult sign to understand, Scorpio. Although you have a calm, cool and collected exterior, inside you're just a roiling ball of emotions that even you have difficulty understanding. In much the same way that you're never quite sure what's going on in your own head, Scorpio, the Cadbury Screme Egg has quite an interesting surprise inside, as well. Covered in a layer of deliciously normal milk chocolate, this egg oozes green fondant the second you break into it. It's the perfect spooky symbolism for your personality, Scorpio, making this yummy egg the perfect Halloween treat for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): M&M's Cookies and Screeem
Idealistic and fun-loving, you have an incredibly open mind, Sagittarius. You like change and you're open to trying anything, as you have an unquenchable sense of adventure that you're always trying to satisfy. The new M&M's Cookies and Screeem are the perfect Halloween treat for you. With an interesting combination of a dark chocolate shell, a white chocolate filling and a white speckled interior, these candies aren't afraid to be a little daring. Much like you, these sweets aren't afraid to step outside of the box in an attempt to satisfy a sense of adventure. Not only does this treat perfectly describe your personality, it's also sure to be your new favorite Halloween snack.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Candy Corn
You're one of the most traditional signs in all of the zodiac, Capricorn. Meaningless frills and new inventions don't really wow you. You'd rather stick with something you know works, especially because you're not a big fan of stepping too far outside your comfort zone. No Halloween treat better captures your personality than the ultimate spooky classic—candy corn. Much like you, candy corn is standard and conventional. Although it can be fairly controversial at times, you simply can't get rid of it. It knows you either love it or hate it, and it's pretty comfortable with that position. Sound familiar, Capricorn?

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Halloween Monster Kisses
Eccentricity is one of the markers of your personality, Aquarius. But while you definitely like to be unique and just a little out-of-the-box, you're also wary of straying too far form your comfort zone. You have an open-minded way of thinking, but your actions are often very traditional and by-the-book. Halloween Monster Kisses are the perfect representation of you, Aquarius. Although they're fairly conventional chocolate kisses on the inside, they make an effort to add an extra layer of fun and excitement on the outside. These candies speak both to your traditional values and your sense of adventure, Aquarius, making them your ultimate Halloween treat.
