What was E.T.’s favorite candy?
- Reese’s Pieces
The correct answer is: A! The most lovable alien to ever grace the big screen was in love with Reese’s Pieces. In the film, Elliott lures E.T. from the forest to his bedroom using a trail of Reese's Pieces. Steven Spielberg originally wanted M&M's to be E.T.’s favorite candy, but the makers of the candy, Mars Inc., found E.T. to be so ugly and likely to frighten children that they refused to allow M&M's to be used in the film.
