Sweets you can’t resist
A person’s favorite things can tell us a lot about them: Their favorite movie can tell us what values matter most to them. Their favorite book can tell us how intelligent they are. But what about their favorite candy? Candy is about fun and indulgence, so someone’s top choice in this department can give you a sense of how silly or serious they are—and that’s just as important to know when you’re determining your compatibility with a potential partner or a best friend.
We consulted an astrology expert to find out each zodiac sign’s favorite candy, so you can learn more about yourself and others—and also stock up on the best Halloween candy. (Why fight destiny?) Once you’re all set, kick back with the sweet snack of your choice and figure out what you should be for Halloween, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19): Red Hots
Aries is one of boldest signs of the zodiac, and the best candy choice for this cardinal sign is one that conveys their aggressive tendencies, according to professional psychic and astrologer Stina Garbis. “Since Aries can have a hot temper and be full of passion, the perfect match would be Red Hots, with their intense cinnamon flavor that excites and awakens,” she says. What else excites Aries? These are the best hobbies for every zodiac sign.
Taurus (April 20–May 20): Godiva Chocolate
Taurus, a sign that loves the finer things in life, would be happiest indulging in high-quality, completely decadent chocolate. “Sensual and rich Taurus needs a smooth, deluxe chocolate that costs a bit more,” Garbis says. “Godiva Milk Chocolate would be sure to please.” One of the world’s biggest names in gourmet chocolate also fits this sign’s appreciation for brand name products. Make it even more indulgent with delectable fillings like raspberry and caramel! If you’re having fun with this, check out the perfect pizza topping for you.
Gemini (May 21–June 20): Twix
One of the most famous contemporary marketing campaigns in the candy industry is the Left Twix/Right Twix shtick. Whether the commercials make you want to grab the chocolate-caramel-cookie candy or not, Garbis suggests that it vibes with Gemini’s role in the zodiac. “With the dual personality of Gemini known as the twins of the zodiac, what better candy than Twix, where they can have half now and half later?” Plus, there’s the duality of the cookie and candy mixed together that appeals to their innermost selves. Another good bet would be candy that has some kind of split-flavor infusion, like Starburst Duos. And back to cookies for a minute: This is your favorite fall cookie, according to astrology.
Cancer (June 21–July 22): Chocolate truffles
“When we think of soft and maternal Cancer, we think of soft center creams enrobed in chocolate,” says Garbis. Cancers—even the ones that can be hard on the outside—are compassionate and emotional, and they bring comfort and love to many people. Chocolates with airy marshmallow and other soft cream fillings are the perfect metaphor for them. Lindt Assorted Chocolate Truffles are a great pick because of their signature smooth, melt-in-your-mouth center. Your rising sign may also influence your candy preferences, so you’ll definitely want to take a peek at that, too.
Leo (July 23–August 22): Jolly Ranchers
Sun sign Leo is often the bright spot in any room. This zodiac sign’s favorite candy will be one that is playful and bright. “Leo desires to be the center of attention and exudes sparkle and humor,” says Garbis. “Jolly Ranchers express the fun-loving and jovial nature of Leo.” These juicy, brightly colored hard candies are not only bursting with flavor, but they literally have happiness in their name! Find out what your power color is and use it wisely to maximize your potential on even the toughest days.
Virgo (August 23–September 22): Toblerone
Virgos always strive to be the best at what they do. Famous for their perfectionism, they simply enjoy proving (to themselves and to others) that they are a cut above the rest. Garbis thinks this zodiac sign’s favorite candy is one that is recognized internationally as being refined and of high quality. “A very tidy, deluxe, and perfect candy such as Toblerone expresses the organized nature of Virgo,” she says. This tidbit will also come in handy when choosing a present for Virgo, as will this gift guide for every zodiac sign.
Libra (September 23–October 22): Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
OK, we know: Pretty much everyone loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But there is a reason that this candy king is best for Libra. “Fair and balanced Libra needs a balanced candy,” Garbis explains. “The perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate found in a Reese’s chocolate peanut butter cup [expresses] the harmonious nature of Libra.” It should come as no surprise that Libra is one of the most polite zodiac signs.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21): Cherry Cordials
Scorpio is mysterious, deep, and seductive. There’s always more beneath the surface for them, which is why this zodiac sign’s favorite candy is sensual, with layers of flavor and texture. “Daring Scorpio needs a candy as sexy as they are,” Garbis says. “Chocolate-covered cherries shared with a lover fit the bill.” Cherry cordials are luxurious and enticing with their smooth chocolate shell, firm candied cherry, and liquid cherry filling.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21): Twizzlers
Garbis describes Sagittarius as “the playmate of the zodiac.” According to her, “Sagittarius needs a candy that’s fun to share…[like] a pack of bright red, twirly Twizzlers.” Pull-apart Twizzlers are an interactive candy whose charm is just as much in the eating as in the flavor. But just in case you’re not a licorice person, Fun Dip is another playful, shareable candy that fits your bubbly personality.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19): Dark Chocolate
Like Virgo, Capricorn is an earth sign with a desire for accomplishment and recognition. However, Capricorn tends to be regarded as more disciplined and reserved. “Capricorn is very serious and has many requirements for a refined chocolate,” Garbis says. “A 70 percent cacao dark chocolate bar that is consumed one square at a time would be right up Capricorn’s alley.” Incredibly pragmatic, people born under this sign will likely think about the nutritional benefits of dark chocolate and enjoy the fact that it offers helpful antioxidants as much as they enjoy the bittersweet taste. They’ll also probably choose a brand that’s in line with their values, like this dark chocolate from Beyond Good, which is organic, fair trade, and vegan. Check out these other food gifts that might appeal to the Capricorn in your life.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18): Nerds
Thought to be one of the most intelligent zodiac signs, Aquarius aligns with Nerds candy in practically every way. “With the varied, unique, and clever personality of Aquarius,” Garbis says, “smart, fizzy, and flavorful Nerds would be the perfect complementary candy.” Like Aquarius, Nerds are bright, zany, and a bit outside-the-box (except for the fact that, you know, they literally come in a box). Ever the innovator, Aquarius would also admire the ingenuity of the Nerds Rope, which combines two candies into one!
Pisces (February 19–March 20): Gummy Bears
Like Cancer, Pisces is an emotional water sign. Pisces can also be childlike and naive, so their ideal treat should reflect their youthful spirit and sensitive nature. “They need a soft, non-threatening candy,” Garbis says. “Gummy bears are as loving as they are tasty and would make any Pisces feel safe.” Colorful, cute, and whimsical, these sugary, chewy candies are always a welcome snack, no matter what your zodiac sign’s favorite candy is.
