<header> 6 Nostalgic Halloween Candies We Still Miss From Our Childhood

It's nearly Halloween, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/halloween-2014/) a time for pumpkins, costumes, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/halloween/) and candy, candy, candy. In 2013, Reese's peanut butter cups, M&M's, and Snickers were all the rage among trick-or-treaters. An even wider range of Halloween-related goodies will be flying off the shelves this year, with (http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/10/27/most-popular-halloween-candy-in-usa/3274967/)consumers expected to spend (https://nrf.com/media/press-releases/record-number-of-americans-buy-halloween-costumes) more than $2.2 billion on candy. (Now there's even Candy Corn Fruity Pebbles.) (http://blogs.westword.com/cafesociety/2014/10/top_five_best_and_worst_new_halloween_treats_for_2 014.php) But during the Halloweens of our youth, there wasn't a Kit Kat wrapper to be found -- much less a candy corn cereal.
But there were a lot of other candies most kids won't find in their trick-or-treat sacks this year that we loved to gobble up when we were young. And so, through a sugary haze, we asked our Facebook fans to take a trip down memory lane and tell us about their favorite Halloween treats from long, long ago. Although Melinda Greer Green responded with, "all I remember is that we avoided the house that gave out apples each year," there were six items you all mentioned again and again.
