The most popular Halloween candy when you were a kid

The Daily Meal Logo By Carolyn Menyes of The Daily Meal | Slide 1 of 11: Trick-or-treating is the favorite Halloween tradition for children around the United States. Little girls and boys dress up as ghosts, witches, cowboys and cats, ring neighbors' doorbells and get treats — or else. Some confections, like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s and Baby Ruths have been popular ever since trick-or-treating came into vogue. But other candies have gone in and out of fashion (and production). You’ll be hard-pressed to find many Boston Baked Beans, Oh Henry! bars or Satellite Wafers these days. What was in your trick-or-treat bag when you were going door-to-door? To determine the top candy of every decade, we researched treat trends and when today’s most popular candies debuted. So, take a walk down memory lane and see the newest and most beloved Halloween candies of every decade.
