Halloween is the best time of the year for any sugar-loving kid (which, let's face it, is all kids). All you had to do was put on the costume your parents either bought or made for you, go around your neighborhood ringing doorbells, and complete strangers would lovingly give you heaps of candy! It was the best!
Of course, when it came time to dump out your bags and check out what you got, there were a few that you were basically guaranteed to get. In particular, these 15 candies seemed to always find their way into our bags (sometimes to our complete disappointment).
There's those tiny caramels that were always rock solid after like a week.
Or candy corn, which I guess someone actually liked since people kept giving it out?
Bags of M&Ms were always appreciated, except when they only had like 2 of them in there.
I absolutely hated the Popeye candy cigarettes. Tasted like sugared chalk.
Same deal with Smarties (or Rockets, depending on where you lived).
A single bag of plain Humpty Dumpty chips. Boooooooooooring.
Let's not forget those little chocolate pumpkins wrapped in foil.
These next few candies are an even bigger trip down memory lane...
Lifesavers were a pretty safe bet; there were at least a few flavors you knew you liked.
Because some people hate children, they would give out these tiny boxes of raisins, which aren't even close to candy (or edible).
The chocolate-covered ones weren't much better either
Remember those people who tried to be "health-conscious" and give you an apple? Not a candy or caramel one, just a regular ****ing apple.
Of course there were Sugar Daddies, which pulled out many a baby tooth when eaten.
Anyone else really hate the wax lips and teeth? How were these even considered candy?
I guess bubblegum kinda counts as candy? Kinda?
Nerds on the other hand were the best. Pure sugar at its finest.
Good & Plenty definitely had plenty, but the jury's still out on if they were good.
Two words: black licorice. Ugh.

Everyone remembers watching Rugrats as a kid, right? It was only the best kids' show ever. Those "dumb babies" as Angelica Pickles would say were a lot more clever than they let on, and in their many adventures they inspired us kids to believe that we could do anything. I mean, we don't have to question how or why a baby keeps a screwdriver in his diaper, because the logistics of where he got it or how he keeps it in there without hurting himself is beyond me, but that's not what matters here. What does matter is that these
You will often hear that the games today are so much better than those of previous generations and in some respects, that is true. The graphics are better, the sound is also better and there is nothing from the 90s that can compare to the speed of today’s gaming systems and PCs. No, you won’t find games you can play in VR with the right headset, however, that’s about as far as it goes if you are looking for some good old-fashioned fun. Let’s look at some of the reasons why 90s games are so much
Even for those of us that remember the 90s, it is hard to recall what we did before the days of mobile devices and constant access to the internet. In 1984, less than 10% of households had a computer or access to the internet. Today, there are about 900,000 domains registered per week. So in about 30 years, we went from barely any computers in homes to almost one million new websites registered each week. Here are some more ways the internet evolved from then to now.EntertainmentToday, there is instant access to all kinds of information from shopping
Back in 1981, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark introduced the world to Professor Indiana Jones. What started with a successful action romp eventually turned into a pop culture staple. With the release of 1984’s prequel, The Temple of Doom, and the 1989 sequel, The Last Crusade, audiences around the world glommed on to the action hero.However, 2008’s The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn’t a blockbuster hit for fans or critics. As with many reworks of mega-popular hits, audiences are holding out hope for the fifth and final project. Still
