Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Picture this: a luscious blend of creamy peanut butter enrobed in smooth milk chocolate. For this beloved Halloween classic, reach for a bottle of Tawny Port. The nutty and caramel notes of the Port harmonize beautifully with the rich peanut butter, creating a heavenly experience for your taste buds.

Colorful, crunchy, and oh-so-satisfying, M&Ms offer a delightful mix of milk chocolate and crisp candy shell. To complement the sweetness and add a touch of sophistication, opt for a glass of Brut Rosé Champagne. The subtle hints of red fruit and the crisp effervescence balance the chocolatey goodness, making each bite a celebration.

Hershey Kisses

Elegantly wrapped in foil, Hershey Kisses are iconic symbols of pure chocolate bliss. Pair these delightful morsels with a glass of Old Vine Zinfandel. The ripe berry flavors and hint of spice in Zinfandel create a perfect harmony, enhancing the cocoa intensity of the Hershey Kisses without overwhelming the palate.

Taste the rainbow with Skittles, the vibrant and fruit-forward candies bursting with flavors. To complement the fruity explosion, pour yourself a glass of Moscato d'Asti. This sparkling Italian wine boasts notes of ripe peaches, candied citrus zest, and a refreshing hint of effervescence. Its sweetness counterbalances the tangy zing of Skittles, creating a delightful contrast that dances on your taste buds.

Starbursts, the chewy, juicy candies that pack a punch of fruit flavors, demand a wine that can match their vivacity. Enter Riesling, a versatile white wine with a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. The floral aromas and notes of green apple and citrus in Riesling harmonize with the zesty flavors of Starbursts, creating a symphony of tastes that will leave you craving for more.
