How To Get Candy

There are a few ways to get Candy and you can do this by purchasing it with your bells prior to the event or by playing the Halloween Event. Candy is a limited-time item available through October, which means once the month and the Event ends you will no longer be able to purchase it.

How To Get Candy Before Halloween

Candy can be purchased from the Cabinet in Nook's Cranny for 120 Bells each, but you can only buy one piece per day. It's a good idea to try to get yourself in a routine of buying a Candy each day, otherwise, you might find you don't have enough for the event. It's recommended to have a minimum of 15 candies but the more the better.

It is really important to get your hands on plenty of Candy before the Halloween event on October 31st because it can be used to Trick or Treat with villagers to get exclusive items and it can be used to interact with Jack, the self-proclaimed Czar of Halloween.

How To Get Free Candy on Halloween

During the Halloween Event you can even get Candy for free. You can get free Candy from the villagers as long as they're in their homes and you can manage to get some off of Jack himself!

How To Get Free Candy off of Your Villagers

On October 31st, wear a costume and speak to villagers whilst they are in their homes but you'll only receive Candy from 5:00 pm. When speaking to them you'll get one piece of Candy per villager so don't instantly repeat the actions and expect more.

However, when you start to run out you will be able to speak to the villagers again and get more Candy after a period of time has passed.

To get free candy from Jack you have to become Jack! You need to speak to the Czar of Halloween and give him two pieces of candy. After this, he will give you Jack's Face and Jack's Robe so you will look exactly like him after putting it on.

If you wear this costume and go to talk to any of your villagers, no one will know it's you and they will become frightened. Whilst they're scared they'll give you a piece of Candy.

This can only be done on each villager once during the event.

If you take your time to log on once a day and head to Nook's Cranny to buy Candy then you will have a great time at the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween Event 2021. October also brings Pumpkin Starts to the game and we have a guide to show you how to grow Pumpkins!
