It's Halloween week, which means you're likely taking your kids or your brother's kids or somebody's kids out trick or treating. Even more likely is that the tykes will return home with way too much candy for their own good and being the responsible, caring adult that you are, you'll want to help them out. But wait, you'll need something to wash that sugary trail of sweetness down your throat, won't you? Luckily, your beverage and candy pairings have already been suggested by our pals at "The Kitchen," who've come up with this handy chart. So happy Halloween everybody, and here's to enjoying the holiday the adult way.
