I will definitely have to try the skittles and Riesling. I'm assuming one would need a dry Riesling since if I got a sweet one the two sweets would cancel each other out?

I remember reading an article about pairings with candy on WC. And sure enough they did an article on it and one I had posted a comment on!

Check out the article

One of the suggestions is to pair a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup with Olorosso Sherry.

And then in the comments, another suggestion was to pair Sauvignon Blanc with sweet and sour candies.

Hey Hawkeye! Happy Halloween!
We will definitely be visiting Bennet Lane when we get there in two weeks. Are you working on your trip report? I need to see your suggestions so I can firm up our itinerary!! Two weeks two days and we are on our way...

You are barking right up my wife's tree! She would tell you that a Bennett Lane Cab would be wonderful. However, she did mention that she would not turn down any Cab.

What would you suggest pairs well with Snickers, Milky Way, Skittles, Starburst, Tootsie Rolls, etc? It is Halloween and that's what we will be having!!
