Ultimate Halloween guide pairs candy with the perfect wine

- It's difficult to find ways to spice up your Halloween candy haul.

The sea of Tootsie Rolls, M&Ms and Reese's all run together and after a while just about any candy tastes like the same sugary mess. But fear not!

Now, you can pair all of your Halloween candy favorites with their corresponding wine. Vivino, a popular wine app, has compiled a 2016 Halloween Candy& Wine Pairing Guide that plays matchmaker between your favorite candies and wines that go well with them.

Some of our favorites, via Vivino:

Pixie Stix + Sauvignon Blanc

These fruity tubes of sugar rush-inducing powder beg to be paired with something equally peppy and fun—Sauvignon Blanc! The juicy tropical fruit and refreshing acidity match well without any sugar to get in the way. Try it: 2014 Tiefenbrunner 'Turmhof' Sauvignon Blanc

Hershey Kisses + Zinfandel:

The best wine contrasts creamy milk chocolate with ripe berry flavors. America’s sweetheart, Zinfandel, turns every bite into a raspberry cordial on the palate. Try it: Ridge Paso Robles Zinfandel

M&MS + Port

The dark, sweet, black fig and dried fruit character of Port is a great counterpoint to the milk chocolate in M&Ms. The hard crunch of the candy shell is perfect with the soft pillow of lavishly textured Port. Try it: Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Port
