Head to Harrison Boulevard, grab some king size Halloween treats and trade them with your friends. Here are the ones that will yield the highest trade value. Spoiler: Starburst > Snickers.

We're going to take a look at Halloween candy from a business perspective. Leave your taste buds out of the game for a minute and let's talk business. Do you want a quality candy haul on Halloween or do you want quantity? If the latter is the answer, keep reading.

Head on over to Harrison Boulevard where you know they'll hook you up with the good, King Size candy bars. If you're trying to trade, you have to have something of value to start with. In other words, you gotta be rich to get rich, right? After you get your haul from trick or treating on Harrison Boulevard, head home and pull all the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to the side. This is what we in the business call "candy gold".

While you're at it, hang on to the Kit Kat's, M&M's and Butterfingers because these too, are in the top 5 candies with the highest trade value. In fact, here's the top 10 list according to CantonRep.com's Halloween Candy Power Rankings:

  1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  2. Kit Kat
  3. Butterfinger
  4. Twix
  5. Starburst
  6. M&M's
  7. Whoppers
  8. Snickers
  9. Tootsie Pops
  10. Skittles

There's your top ten list, okay? This is important because with these you can trade for any number of other candies. Like Jolly Ranchers? You could Yield 20 of them (for example) for one Kit Kat bar. This all depends on your ability to negotiate a good candy trade but consider this article a freebie, like the stock market but with less risk.

Enjoy, and have a safe and Happy Halloween.
