The Halloween-themed update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now. With the new update comes many seasonal spooky items and one of these items is Candy because how can Halloween be complete without Candy? In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know about how to get Candy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.


How to Get Candy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The methods to get candy are limited. The primary method is to buy it from Nook’s Cranny for 120 Bells throughout the month of October.

However, there’s also a downside that you can only buy only one candy per day. But don’t worry! There are some tips and tricks which you can apply to get some extra candy:

The first trick requires your friends’ help. You can head to your friend’s island and once there, you’ll be able to buy candy from Nook’s Cranny.

This will massively increase the amount of candy you can collect before Halloween.

To get some extra candy by the second method, you’ll have to dress up in your Halloween costume and visit villagers inside of their homes. If they’re impressed by your costume, they gift you with some candy.

Now that we know all about getting candy in the game, how do you use it?

Where to Use Candy

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, candy can be used primarily as a gift to your friends or villagers. The uses and rewards of Candy are as follows:

  • You can gift it to Czar Jack to acquire his costume which includes his robe, face mask, etc. In this way, you’ll be able to mimic his look in the game.
  • You can also gift candy to the villagers roaming around the island in their Halloween costumes. In return, they may reward you with Spooky Set Furniture or Lollipops which jack loves to eat.
  • You can also catch ants using candy if you don’t have some already. To catch ants, simply place candy on the ground and walk away, after some time when you return chances are that you’ll find ants crawling all over it.
