This article contains a ranking of candy because it’s Halloween and someone out there is searching “Halloween candy” right now. Seasonal events make people click, search engine optimization is a great way to get clicks, and it’s very important that a lot of people click this article.

Have you heard that the media market is extremely volatile?

Every click counts, and I’m hoping to bring in a lot of clicks with this. It’s a ranking of Halloween candy, two things everyone knows and loves. (Right??!!?!) Help me keep my job a little bit longer. I want lots of clicks so advertisers will buy ad space on this website, even though it will never get as many views as a Google search for “green toe pain.” I’ll keep trying, though. I’m not sure what else to do with the years I’ve already spent trying to build a career in media after graduating from college during a recession.

But this isn’t about me; it’s about you. You need to know what the best candy is for Halloween. Even though you’re 33. With no kids. And totally into Keto.

The ranking below features plenty of candies I’m betting you had as a kid. Nostalgia is a drug and so is sugar, so that makes this ranking better than doing the work you’re supposed to be doing at 9:30 a.m., the best time to have published this story. To encourage you to stay on this page as long as possible, I’m presenting the candies from worst (candy corn) to best (not telling you yet!!). Engaged audiences are valuable audiences so I will do whatever I can to keep you looking at this ranking for as long as possible.

You’ll see I’ve made some bold, wrong choices in this definitive ranking. There are even some newfangled candies on here — I think you’ll find that some sound good while others sound completely pointless. That’s the idea! Announce your disagreements loudly and often on Twitter and Facebook. I need your friends and, actually, your parents and their friends to click on it, too.

And, Google, if you’re watching: this article is good. I wrote “Halloween” and “candy” in it a lot. It’s absolutely the best Halloween candy to buy kit-kat-reeses-twix-candy-corn.
