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!
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.
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.
These next few candies are an even bigger trip down memory lane...
Lifesavers were a pretty safe bet; there were at least a few flavors you knew you liked.
Because some people hate children, they would give out these tiny boxes of raisins, which aren't even close to candy (or edible).
The chocolate-covered ones weren't much better either
Remember those people who tried to be "health-conscious" and give you an apple? Not a candy or caramel one, just a regular ****ing apple.
Of course there were Sugar Daddies, which pulled out many a baby tooth when eaten.
Anyone else really hate the wax lips and teeth? How were these even considered candy?
I guess bubblegum kinda counts as candy? Kinda?
Nerds on the other hand were the best. Pure sugar at its finest.
Good & Plenty definitely had plenty, but the jury's still out on if they were good.
Two words: black licorice. Ugh.

Everyone remembers watching Rugrats as a kid, right? It was only the best kids' show ever. Those "dumb babies" as Angelica Pickles would say were a lot more clever than they let on, and in their many adventures they inspired us kids to believe that we could do anything. I mean, we don't have to question how or why a baby keeps a screwdriver in his diaper, because the logistics of where he got it or how he keeps it in there without hurting himself is beyond me, but that's not what matters here. What does matter is that these
Halloween was basically the most important time of the year when we were kids. I mean, it's when you get to dress up in a costume that makes you happy and run around your town demanding candy from strangers, what's not to love?While it wasn't quite as hyped up as Christmas was, there was one place that always seemed to know how to do Halloween right: McDonald's. The fast food giant was always good at getting into the spooky spirit, bringing some of the best promotions and events for us to enjoy, and we still remember them to this
Franken Berry, Boo-Berry, and Count Chocula were three of the best cereals to ever come across our grocery store aisles. As children, we would beg our parents to get us some of these marshmallow-filled treats instead of the boring, old, healthier options, and when they actually did it, we were so thrilled. Even though kids loved the cereals, there were actually a couple of different controversies involving the General Mills classics.

Going trick-or-treating when you're a kid is probably one of the most important days of the entire year. When else are you supposed to get a whole bunch of free candy for little to no effort? I mean, I guess there's Easter and Christmas, but you know what, with Halloween you get to wear super fun costumes and pretend to be whatever you want. Those of us who enjoyed trick-or-treating as kids probably developed quite the sweet tooth, that often makes us crave some of the delectable snacks from our childhood. But here's the problem, some of our favorite candy
