Some treats to be found in this bucket

NCAA Football: Duke at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

All week long, SBNation has been asking you to vote on the best Halloween candy and

Here at TNIAAM’s #jokesandgarbage center we decided to match ACC football teams to the Halloween candy they best represent so let’s get to it....

Boston College Eagles - MIlky Way

They stayed the same for a long, long time but now they want to mix it up and convince you they are something different. Deep down they aren’t but you’re confused enough to believe them

Clemson Tigers - Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (Full Size)

The Tigers are not only the most sought-after candy but they are also the biggest in the neighborhood. They don’t even try and hide either- they are out on Nextdoor weeks before letting people know they are bigger and better than the rest.

Duke Blue Devils - Smarties

David Cutcliffe’s going to give you something simple and easy and throw in a toothbrush so you don’t get cavities.

Florida State Seminoles - Milk Duds

From the outside it looks like you’re going to get something awesome but look inside and it’s not all that great.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets - Mounds

There seems to be no middle ground for either. It’s either love/hate for Mounds or big win/get blown out for Tech.

Louisville Cardinals - Skittles

Louisville changes their look every week and like the variety of Skittles there’s hits and misses along the way.

Miami-Florida Hurricanes - Baby Ruth

People try to tell you it’s just as good as you remember but then you see it in some water and realize it reminds you of something else entirely.

North Carolina Tar Heels - Peanut M&Ms

How do you dress up a plain old nut? Throw a chocolate shell of a high-powered offensive attack around and people suddenly think you have a smash.

N.C. State Wolfpack - Twizzlers

Even if you like to eat twizzlers you have to admit they don’t really satisfy you. You just have them

Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Starburst

A very good candy on its own but every time you chew it you’re bored before you’re halfway through.

Pittsburgh Panthers - Sour Patch Kids

Watching Pat Narduzzi kick endless short field goals is just like the first bite into this candy.

Syracuse Orange - Candy corn

People who hand this out for Halloween are the same ones that think it’s 30 years ago and Syracuse Football should be a top 25 team every season.

Virginia Cavaliers - Snickers

Bronco Mendenhall has satisfied Virginia football fans’ desire to see a winning program and can you picture a guy named Bronco eating anything other than a Snickers?

Virginia Tech Hokies - Kit Kat

COVID keeps breaking off pieces from the Hokies and they keep finding a way to move forward successfully

Wake Forest Demon Deacons - Hershey’s

You might not get overly excited about either but sometimes you don’t want to take a chance and you just want the reliable option.
