Best Halloween Candy 

Nogales Candy Stores

STAFF PICK: It's worth a day trip to the dulcerías of Nogie to stock up on products from the Vero factory in Guadalajara, the finest surrealist candy factory in the hemisphere. Surprise your trick-or-treaters this year with suckers shaped like peanuts, stoplights and cups of frozen raspberry swirl yogurt. Try the pizza slice lollipops flavored with lots of hot chile. Suck on fruit-flavored thumbs, lovingly detailed with hangnails and thumbprints and filled with gory tamarind paste. Pick up a bag of Smallpox Pops: pink pocked human heads on a stick in "sexy fruit flavors." Don't forget a bag of those suckers with extra dye to color your mouth blue and red, or that old standby, the tequila pop (salud, boys and girls!).

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
