Years ago when they made minature versions of mallo cups and smoothies those were my favorites. Banana kits and bb bats ran a close second.

      Regular grocery store sized candy bars usually is was Snickers or Milky ways.....maybe only one house had given them out..... but when they did you were amazed and thought that house was "rich" because they were NOT giving out the mini sized ones.

        My kids are so picky about candy, I usually ended up with most of their bags. I bought them all the kinds of candy they enjoyed, and would swap out the stuff they would not eat.

        My oldest son gave up trick or treating, very young. He enjoys being home, and handing out candy and gift certificates, to the kids.
        He is a tough cookie, about it. All the kids have to describe who they are dressed as, and how/why they came up with the idea. No written essay.

        Oy! My youngest still want to got out for the treats. I had to tell him to give it up! My goodness, he is 17.

        Lucking into the house that had the Russel Stover goodies, is always a good thing.

          Funny, you only see candy corn around Halloween and there are actually people that DO eat that stuff LOL.
          I can't help but think of the comedy routine that comedian Lewis Black did on candy corn where he claimed that all the candy corn in the U.S. was manufacured in something like 1921 and it has since been passed from house to house ever since then as no one actually eats that stuff.
          Sort of like a Christmas Fruit cake. Come to think of it, I got the fruit cake last year. Now if I can only remember who I have to ship it to.

          My favorite always was the Clark Bar but you hardly ever see them around anymore

            Anyone remember Mary Janes? They're from the same company, Necco (for New England Confectionary Company), that makes Necco wafers. Sort of a peanut butter taffy with molasses instead of corn syrup.

                I loved the fruit flavored candies when I was a kid more than the chocolate ones. Though I loved both! Mostly they were hard candies then, I must have been 12 or so when gummy candies started to be more common. I could have gotten away with trick or treating much longer than I did. 5 feet tall, in a costume, who was to know I was 17 and not 11! I quit going out after 8th grade though.

                  The last year I trick or treated, age 13, my friends and I walked for miles and hours, our last blast, so to speak.

                    I always loved Butterfinger and Dots. I convinced my son at a very early age that he wouldn't like those

                              While NECCO doesn't do online sales, they have links, not including yours, to stores that sell their product line online.

                                Now & Laters, Jolly Ranchers and Laffy Taffy. Scared to eat that stuff now, My Mom always said some Dentist must have invented it to pull the filling out of your teeth.
