CINCINNATI -- Halloween may not involve the intensive food prep of Thanksgiving or hours of stringing lights at Christmas, but that doesn't mean you couldn't use a little pick-me-up after (during?) hours of handing out candy to tiny ghosts and goblins.

That's why the fine folks behind the Vivino wine app have paired a dozen wines with popular trick-or-treat candy, following the success of their Girl Scout cookie pairings earlier this year. They've even included extensive tasting notes from wine experts and suggest particular brands to try. 

Why not reach for a glass of Moscato with that handful of candy corn? Expert Karen MacNeil calls the combo "a phantasmagoria of sweetness" and "candyland on steroids." See the rest of their tasting notes here.
