You, like so many others, may have woken up to find Candy Buckets all over your well-decorated town in Dreamlight Valley.

There are five Halloween quests that you can complete as part of the event that is going on in Disney Dreamlight Valley. These quests require you to do everything from stockpiling a ton of Pumpkins to eating a ton of candy. The Candy Buckets that appeared in town can be interacted with to obtain Candy of different colors. Pay attention to the colors of the buckets. Each color bucket will get you a different-colored Candy, with a total of three colors that you can find.

While you might think that this Candy is used to complete the Sugar Rush quest, it is actually used to complete 3-Course Halloween Meal quest. After eating all three of the candy colors, you will find that the quest is complete and you can gain your reward. Unfortunately, these Candies do not count toward the 45 you need to eat for the Sugar Rush quest.
