We scoured the internet to find commonly recommended pairings, so we could actually try them and tell you if any of these things actually work. Much like our prior episode, the news isn’t great, but we did find a few diamonds in the rough, including an extremely surprising combo that I thought could be lethal! Patrons Kelsey and Colby Eliades guest host with me to power through this episode and sum up the things we learned about candy pairings – what works, what doesn’t, and why!


Here are the combos we tested…

  • Pop rocks with Prosecco

  • Candy corn with Prosecco and Moscato d’Asti
  • Gummy worms with Rosé

  • Sour Patch Kids with off-dry Riesling

  • Starburst and Moscato d’Asti

  • Twizzlers, and Swedish Fish with Beaujolais

  • Kit Kat with Pinot Noir

  • Peppermint Patties with Syrah

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and Reese’s Pieces with Lambrusco  
  • Hershey's bars and Whoppers with Zinfandel
  • Port-style Zinfandel with M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, Heath bar

    And, so concludes my attempt at pairing wine with Halloween candy. We did the encore, I am so thankful for Kelsey and Colby for participating, and now I'm never doing this again 😂😂😂!
