You’re probably too old to trick or treat if you are over 21. But that’s okay. Candy doesn’t care about your age. Candy will support you regardless of your age, no matter how small or large, whether you are enjoying 100 mini chocolate bars just for yourself or stealing your children’s treats after a night of trick-or-treating.
Adults have many options for candy acquisition, including candy and other candy bars. But, you can also add a pint to your candy intake. Gopuff also offers beer delivery which makes it easier to match the right beer with your candy. *
While there is no one right way to combine beer and candy, there are some guidelines you can follow. These are some tips to help you create a winning combination for your Halloween treat.
- Flavor Strongly flavored treats are often a good match for other strong-flavored beverages. A chocolate-covered caramel treat such as Snickers goes well with a milk stout or chocolatey caramel beer. There are situations where opposites can attract. There are many ways to combine booze and candy, but there is no one right way.
- Mouthfeel Some drinks are creamy and buttery, while others pack a punch. Pair velvety candies such as caramels and chocolate with thick, creamy drinks. Sour candies are best paired with a high-carbonated beverage.
- Intensity Combine intensely flavored candy with strongly flavored beverages to double the fun, or use a neutral beverage to balance out high-octane candies.
