15 Halloween Candies You Always Got While Trick-Or-Treating (Whether You Wanted Them Or Not)

- Page 1

Halloween is the best time of the year for any sugar-loving kid (which, let's face it, is all kids). All you had to do was put on the costume your parents either bought or made for you, go around your neighborhood ringing doorbells, and complete strangers would lovingly give you heaps of candy! It was the best!

Unless of course you were Charlie Brown...Giphy

Of course, when it came time to dump out your bags and check out what you got, there were a few that you were basically guaranteed to get. In particular, these 15 candies seemed to always find their way into our bags (sometimes to our complete disappointment).

There's those tiny caramels that were always rock solid after like a week.


Or candy corn, which I guess someone actually liked since people kept giving it out?


Bags of M&Ms were always appreciated, except when they only had like 2 of them in there.

Mars Candy

I absolutely hated the Popeye candy cigarettes. Tasted like sugared chalk.


Same deal with Smarties (or Rockets, depending on where you lived).


A single bag of plain Humpty Dumpty chips. Boooooooooooring.

Let's not forget those little chocolate pumpkins wrapped in foil.

Thompson Candy

These next few candies are an even bigger trip down memory lane...
