Best Chocolate Candy: Godiva Pumpkin Spice Caramels

Our tasters loved these pumpkin spice white chocolate candies with a caramel center. They described these as the "perfect blend of caramel and pumpkin spice." They raved about the balance of spices that was "extremely flavorful without being annoying."

Honorable Mention: Candy Corn M&Ms and Milky Way Caramel Apple

One tester described the new Milky Way as "Seasonal, classic, simple, delicious" and "fantastic." The bite-sized treats were satisfying when you're looking to for a chocolatey caramel indulgence.

One self-professed "white chocolate- lover" described the M&Ms as being "very sweet with a good consistency." The super-sweet candies became personal favorites with comments like "Oh my god these are delicious!" and a "delightful addition to the M&M family." Many loved the colorful candy corn shell and "hyper-sweet crunch."
