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.

McDonald's was the very best treat that a kid could have. Going to get some chicken McNuggets, then hanging out in the Play Place was the highlight of any week. Well, in the 90s you could bring that experience home with you. That's right, you could eat McDonald's in your home, perfect for the true fast food lover! Just what every mom wants! You might be wondering what kind of set up your mini McDonald's would have. Well, lucky for you, there was essentially all the parts you need to have your own franchise (sort of)! I mean, nothing was
