If you don’t want to buy candy daily there is a second method to getting candy. To do this method purchase a spooky costume from the Able Sisters shop and wear it on Halloween (October 31). Once you are adequately spooked up head around to the different homes on your island when villagers are home. This trick or treating will net you a piece of candy from each villager.

Additionally if you wear the Jack’s Robe and Face the villagers will have additional dialogue when speaking to them and will give you candy immediately, even outside of their homes. They will then recognize you as not being Jack.

That’s all you need to know about how to get candy in Animal Crossing New Horizons. The limited time Halloween event requires you to collect a number of pieces of candy and lollipops to give to Jack to receive all the rewards. These themed rewards range from clothing to more interesting furniture items.
