PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) --Every time a piece of candy goes into a costumed kid's pillowcase or shopping bag this Halloween, that could be money going into your wallet.
One of the most foolproof ways to make investments is to fill your portfolio with things you love.

Love gorging yourself on soda and chips while watching football every Sunday? You sound like a PepsiCo (PEP) and DirecTV (DTV) shareholder in waiting.
If you're resisting the urge to disconnect the doorbell, dim the lights and play dead this Halloween, chances are you'll be investing in candy of some sort.
