Halloween was last week but many people still have leftover candy. If you're getting down to the types of candy you don't like so much... you might consider pairing a piece with some wine!

A wine bar "Infinite Monkey Theorem" has some ideas:

Leftover candy corn pairs well with a late harvest Riesling. That's considered a dessert wine and goes well with fruit desserts.

Sweet Tarts are apparently a match with a dry Riesling. Experts say the two will give you the perfect flavor balance.

The infinite monkey theorem says Rose and pink Starbursts are a great match in color and in flavor.

And a couple other suggestions: Sauvignon Blanc with Sour Patch kids, Zinfandel with Raisinettes, or Lambrusco with Twizzlers.
