Halloween isn't just about pumpkins, goblins, ghosts and haunted houses, it's also about CANDY! The collection of treats can be even more fun than dressing up when you're a kid. Which got me thinking about all of the great candy we used to collect, divide into piles and barter after the big Halloween Trick or Treat fest. Here are some favorites.
In my opinion Tootsie Rolls are like filler candy - there to take up space in the Halloween basket and make you think you have more candy options that you do. I always used to end up with a 100 more tootsie rolls than anything else.
Not my favorite, but so many people love these. I can't understand the purpose of consuming straight powdery sugar. It grosses me out. Once I saw my little cousins consume 3 sticks in 10 minutes. It was like a massive adrenaline attack! They went nuts. Certainly a kid favorite, but doesn't help the parents out.
