The Chocolate Debate

Lucy Raquel Fowler, Writer

Is chocolate the best Halloween candy? Most Americans buy M&M’s, Milky Ways, Skittles, Snickers, and Starbursts, giving the trick or treaters a hard decision to make. At the end of the night, people all across the country sort and trade their candy. Many are excited for the chocolaty treats, while others are in it for sour and fruity goods. What do you think? Is chocolate the best Halloween candy?

 Yes, Chocolate is fire!

Chocolate is a classic Halloween candy. You can choose from dark, milk, or white chocolate, and it can be mixed with everything from nuts, cashews, caramel, and nougat. You can also buy chocolate sculptures of almost anything! You can have your chocolate rich, sweet, dark, milk, lots of options to choose from. Besides the delicious flavor, Dark chocolate also has health benefits. Chocolate can help your immune system, (what your body has to fight diseases) it can improve your brain function, and it is nutritious! Chocolate might seem unhealthy, but it still rules! 

No way, Anything but chocolate candy!

Chocolate may be a classic, but it’s not for everyone. Many chocolate bars have nuts and milk, which can be bad for people if they are allergic to them. All chocolate candies have the same basic ingredients, and some people might prefer sour, fizzy, or other textures and flavors. There are other candies that have more variety, like gummy worms, they are shaped funny, and taste even better! Candy like Lemonheads, Sour Patch Kids, Trolli, and Warheads all have a sour taste to them, so they fizz, pucker, or pop in your mouth, and it’s pretty funny to see other people’s faces. Beat that, Chocolate.  

So now that you know a little about chocolate, which side do you take?
