If you’re reading this anywhere near Milwaukee, trick-or-treating has come and gone. Perhaps you’re raiding your kid’s candy stash as we speak. Maybe your house wasn’t hit as hard as you expected it would be and you now have a bowl of leftover treats taunting you. Regardless of why candy is in your vicinity right now, we’re willing to bet some Starburst is in your immediate future.

Though it’s not the best mainstream Halloween candy out there (that honor goes to Reese’s Pumpkins), Starburst is still a top-tier option. And unlike many of its candy contemporaries, these popular fruit chews offer more variety and randomness in the fun size format because each sealed package includes TWO pieces of candy instead of one. The “Original” Starburst offering consists of four flavors: Cherry, Lemon, Orange, and Strawberry. If our math is right, this flavorful foursome can be paired in 10 different ways.

We’ve crunched the numbers, munched some candy, and have arrived upon these definitive rankings of Starburst original flavor fun size duos. Yes, these rankings are correct. No, we will not be taking any questions at this time.

10. Lemon / Lemon

9. Strawberry / Strawberry

8. Orange / Lemon

7. Orange / Orange

6. Cherry / Strawberry

5. Cherry / Lemon

4. Cherry / Cherry

3. Cherry / Orange

2. Lemon / Strawberry

1. Orange / Strawberry
