As a kid, when I would come home with my pillow case full of Hallowe'en candy, my Mom would insist on rummaging through my gotten gains on the pretense of checking for any number of urban legend ills. Maybe someone put a razor blade in that candy apple, or dipped that toffee in drain cleaner, she would contend. It took becoming a parent myself to realize I was being played for my candy stash.

I'm not sure my Mom ever thought too much about what she would drink while 'testing' my trick-or-treat haul, but the folks at have clearly done their homework, compiling a list of the 11 Best Wines to Pair with Hallowe'en Candy.

Check out the list and let me know in the comments if there are any combos you love that they left out.
