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.

There was a magical drink that was available to us in the 90s. It was clear, it was light, and it was bubbly. It was the ultimate drink for those who weren't really into beer but still wanted something with a little zing and when they discontinued it we all were distressed. Zima was first introduced in 1993. It was glorious. A lot of you probably remember it as the first alcohol you ever drank. It was kind of like a wine cooler, but not as sweet, and had a citrus taste that was so much more refreshing. Sure, they
Breakfast time is always a pretty exciting part of the day. I mean, at least it is when you're a kid. When you're an adult it means it's time to head out to work, but for kids it's a bit different. When you're young, you have very few responsibilities. Sure, you have to go to school, but it's not really the biggest deal. But even still, we were supposed to start our days off right with a health and well-balanced breakfast. What did we do instead? We ate a bunch of sugary cereal and crashed by snack time.Did we
Listen, it's fine to reminisce about all the things we used to have, but sometimes it's downright frustrating to remember everything that you want to eat, and then not be able to eat it. Instead, let's take a moment and remember the good and wonderful companies that are still providing us with super good treats and meals that taste like our childhood. Sure, their health value is questionable at best, but who are we to judge! Enjoy yourself, think of this as the shopping list for your retro theme party! This what you can still get:1.

Going to McDonald's was one of the main highlights of our childhoods. It was a rare event, but when it happened, it was basically like going into an amusement park with chicken nuggets. Not only did you get a great meal that in your opinion was full of nutritional value, but you got a kickass toy and a fun time in an awesome play place. Let's revisit all the best parts about your childhood trips to McDonald's:Obviously you have to start with the Happy MealOur mom had a rule where we couldn't open our toys until we ate our
