Happy HalloweenOctober 27, 2016
It’s that time of year again… when the stores are crammed with orange and black wrappers, their artificial sugar singing to you to relive your childhood. You want to make your candy splurge worth it; these kid-friendly snacks deserve an adult upgrade. After intensive internet and personal research, we have for you a list of wines to pair with the candy you either pilfer from your child or buy yourself (no judgement).
Nerds: Any sparkling wine will do- make your own adult version of Pop Rocks!
Candy Corn: Chardonnay is a fantastic wine to compliment the rich sweetness of the candy. (Personally verified.) Also, bubbles, because obviously.
Kit Kat: Take this crunchy confection to the next level by pairing it with a medium bodied red (we like Merlot or Sangiovese) or… bubbles. What can we say, bubbles rule everything around us.
Butterfinger: This creamy, crispy treat is complimented by a rich white (lookin’ at you, Chardonnay) or a bold dessert wine (late harvest, port, etc)
Twix: A perennial favorite, Twix is delicious with a bold red, think Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
Snickers: The perfect combination of all of the food groups (chocolate, nuts, caramel) this tasty treat lends itself well to any red of your choosing. We love our Merlot with anything, but you can get creative.
Reese’s: You know what is delicious? Chocolate and peanut butter and Cabernet Sauvignon. We will stand by our statement.
M&M’s: These little beads of happiness compliment a variety of reds well… try a Sangiovese or a Grenache for a lighter pairing or go bold with a Cab. Did we mention Merlot is literally delicious with most things chocolate?
Whoppers: Crunchy, chocolaty, perfection. Cabernet Sauvignon gives this a whole new level of amazing.
Hershey’s: Classic, we like a Zinfandel or a Chardonnay with this simple delight.
