What were your fave Halloween treats when you were young?

[ Edited ]

For me, it was the mini boxes of Junior Mints, 100 Grand, and Oh Henry!

For me, I loved "Sweettarts" and "Smarties", Almond Joys, Hershey Bars with Almonds. 

 

My parents always gave out the full size candy bars.  Children would yell down the block..."Come to this house for Great Candy"! 

 

It is funny, but we my DH and I are following in my parents footsteps...

 

We only give out "Full Size Candy Bars".  Yes, the kids are still yelling down the block "Come to this house for Great Candy"...It makes my husband laugh.

When I was a child, everyone gave out full size candy bars.  .There were no small size ones being made.  I used to get a ton of Hershey Bars and always trade them with family and friends for Reese's Peanut butter Cups.

Our all time favourites were homemade popcorn balls made by a nice elderly neighbor & a bag of Frito's.   Funny thing is my DH retired from Frito Lay after 32 years of making them.  We were easy to please.

A full-size candy bar! There'd be one or two every year.

My mother wouldn't allow us to eat the homemade treats people handed out unless we knew them.  I don't remember getting too many homemade things anyway.
