We're just about a week away from Halloween and this might be the best news I've heard yet. When you're raiding your kids' trick-or-treat bags, steal whatever you want, because they probably won't miss it.

A new survey found that kids and adults have very different opinions on the best Halloween candies.

Kids' top eight candies include stuff that's really sugary and usually fruit-flavored:

  1. Smarties
  2. Starburst
  3. Twix
  4. Nerds
  5. Skittles
  6. Sour Patch Kids
  7. M&Ms
  8. Laffy Taffy

Adults' top eight are much more chocolate oriented:

  1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  2. M&Ms
  3. Swedish Fish
  4. Hershey's Kisses
  5. Candy corn
  6. Fun Dip
  7. Snickers
  8. Kit Kats

So the only overlap is M&Ms. Everything else? Steal away.
