Fiona Adams, assistant tasting director at Wine Enthusiast, said, "Unlike your average dessert that has layered flavors and balance, candy is basically entirely sugar. All that sugary sweetness is delightful to eat, but it can make dry wines taste astringent and bitter."

For example, Adams recommends eating M&Ms with light, fruity, unoaked reds like Pinot Noir or Gamay; for Kit Kats, a nice Ruby Port, and for Starbursts, an off-dry Riesling.

Whatever your tastes, make sure you make a b-line to the toothbrush afterwards.
