It's not only for sugar-ravenous youths and bored customers in line at the drugstore. Halloween candy tempts serious food and wine lovers this time of year as well. Here, three sommeliers share expert wine pairings for their favorite brands.
Baby Ruth with PX Sherry: "Sweet sherry pairs well with nutty, gooey chocolate because it's nutty and gooey," says June Rodil of Qui Austin. "The signature chocolate nougat in the Baby Ruth brings out the maple and brown sugar tones in the sherry, while the nuts go perfectly with the oxidative, candied walnut notes of the wine." Rodil recommends having this intensely rich pairing while screening The Goonies.
