Wine & Candy
One of the worst parts about being an adult is that, unless you want a weird neighborhood reputation, you can’t go trick-or-treating anymore. But one of the best parts about being an adult is that you can buy as much candy as you want and don’t have to wait for your parents to meter it out to you. Not only that, but now you can also drink while you eat it! Here are some recommendations for what to pair with whatever your favorite candy might be!
Sour Patch Kids- Washington Hills Late Harvest Riesling
A nice Riesling with sweet notes of green apples, apricots and honey match the sour pucker of Sour Patch Kids.
Laffy Taffy- Naked Grape Moscato
Whether it's banana, green apple or strawberry taffy- moscato works as a versatile pair with flavors of apricots, honey and apple.
Nerds- Dr. L Riesling
The initially sour then sweet Nerds match Dr. L Riesling that refreshes your palatte before the next bunch of candies.
Mr. Goodbar- Sandeman Tawny Port
The milk chocolate and peanut flavors meld nicely with the caramel, raisin, toffee and nutty notes of this delightful port.
Nestle Crunch- Dashe Late Harvest Zinfandel
The sweet raspberry and strawberry flavors bring out the crunchy milk chocolate goodness that Crunch Bar has to offer.
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups- Irony Cabernet Sauvignon
The smooth peanut butter pairs with the dark flavors of black cherry, chocolate and cassis perfectly with this Californian Cabernet Sauvignon.
Snickers- Rosemount Estate Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon
The salty peanuts and caramel of Snickers works well with the dark fruits and soft textures of this Australian Cabernet.
Raisinettes- Sterling Vintner's Collection Syrah
The intense dark fruit and almost sweet intensity and flavor of this syrah balances perfectly with the chocolate and raisins.
Milky Way- Joseph Drouhin Laforet Chardonnay
Light oak and slight minerality match well with the creamy caramel and nougat of the Milky Way candies.
Twizzlers- Milbrandt Traditions Riesling
The chewiness and sweetness of the red licorice works well with the off dry qualities and bright acidity of this Washington Riesling.
