New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton revealed his favorite Halloween candy earlier this week, and he didn't name any of the three major brands listed above.

"Unfortunately, a lot of the candies aren't vegan because of the gelatin, but I'm a big marshmallow guy, and they make homemade marshmallow here, which is tremendous," Newton said.
