    My favorite treat was always Hershey bars. Nothing is better than pure, untouched chocolate. Least favorite? No contest. Mounds and Almond Joy. We always traded candy after trick-or-treating, and nobody ever wanted the poor, unloved coconut candy bars. I feel kind of bad for them now, but yeah. They’re still my least favorite.

    My favorite was a lady always handmade marshmallows with roasted coconut on top with drizzled chocolate and least would probably be an old man who left his light on but just yelled at us for trick or treating.

    favorite, hmmm… CHOCOLATE, although there was the house over the hill that passed out cans of pop, an dif you waited long enough, and they ran out of cans you could score a whole 2 liter for yourself!! that was exciting!!! but really chocolate.
    and least favorite, was those black or orange wrapped peanut butter, or whatever they were, chews. I HATED THOSE, but my mom liked them, so she got them from me and my 2 brothers!!!
    and i trick or treated in the late 80s early 90s, when it started getting rediculous with having to check candy for razor blades, so no home made anything, unless made by family or one of the rare neighbors we knew well enough, and they all bought candy, cause whats the point in making it, when 99% of the kids wont be allowed to eat it, even if you didtn mess with it!!

    My favourite treat to get was the candy kisses (The black and orange wrapped candy). I would trade my brother my chocolate bars and chips just to get his from him. I never ate them myself but I would mail them to my grandma who lived 1500km away from us it was her favourite candy. She use to say to me that when she opened one up it was like getting a kiss from me everyday even though I was far away for her.
    My least favourite would be pennies!

    My favorite treats were unique things like when I received bags of chips or pretzels, bubble gum, and even a dollar.

    My least favorite were knockoff sour or fire balls in clear plastic. Sketchy.

    My favorite were the popcorn balls made by a retired school teacher down the street. It seemed like everyone in town stopped by her house to get one! They were so fresh and I’ve never had one come close to hers! My least favorite as a child were Raisinets. I would have rather had just the raisins!

    My favorite treat was the Hershey’s miniatures the ‘fancy’ house down the street handed out, because they used a golden ladle to scoop them from a bowl and drop them into your pillow case! My least favorite was getting a nickel! :)

    Having had some form of braces for most of my childhood anything hard, taffy, gum, anything with nuts or apples were my least favorite!

    My very favorite thing of all? 3 Musketeers Bars or Almond Joys (I pick off the almonds) :) or back in the days there were these colorful coconut candies – they came in pink, white and chocolate colored. Those were good too! I’d trade all the stuff I couldn’t eat for the stuff I could! WIN! :)

    My favorite halloween candy or treat was chocolate, and popcorn balls one of the neighbors made every year. I could take them because she was my babysitter. Least favorite items was the religious pamplets and toothbrushes with toothpaste one family handed out.

    With 3 sisters we traded for things we liked and disliked.

    My least favorite was the hard caramels. My most favorite was all the change (pennies, nickels, dimes) from people who must have forgotten and then it was the big chocolate bars.

    Mmmmm my Favorite has always been homemade gooy popcorn balls but, since I grew up during the time we started checking our candy, I didn’t get to eat those unless our families knew each other. So my second favorite is anything chocolate. Even though I never enjoyed any of the candy that was not chocolate, I still appreciated getting it. Being able to dress up and use our imaginations, laugh and have a night of adventure made it ALL the worthwhile!! It is soo fun to relive those years with my own kids now!! A great night of dress up for the whole family and lots of laughs make for GREAT memories!! :-)

    As a child, my most favorite handouts were candy corn and jolly ranchers. I only eat candy corn at Halloween and to this day still look forward to it! My least favorite trick-or-treating handouts are Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses. I use to play card games with my parents and we would use these as money. I was thrilled when they would beat me, though I could not show it.

    Happy Halloween everyone!

    My favorite was plain Hershey’s chocolate bars hands down. My least favorite were apples & homemade popcorn balls neither of which my parents would let me eat anyway not knowing exactly who they came from. Sad that even way back then (not giving away my age lol) we couldn’t always trust people.

    I think the worst ever treats were the people who gave us kids the handful of mints. Nothing more depressing that getting excited to eat your favorite chocolate and you see 1 million mints in your bag lol. The best treats ever were the people who took their time to make a special Halloween decorated bag, I didn’t care what it was in it, it made me happy just to see they cared :)

  50. Carrie Cunningham

    Any chocolate mini candy bars were my favorite! They always taste better when they’re little lol. The worst, candy corn! I always hated the stuff and even as an adult I can only eat one or two pieces even if it looks good lol.

    My favorite Halloween treat was a homemade popcorn ball from a neighbor lady at the other end of our street. We always had to get two extras to bring home to our parents. The lady has not been well enough to make them for the last few years, but the memories will last forever!

    My least favorite Halloween item would be Mary Jane’s. My sisters and I would run home, sort our candy out, and give all the Mary Jane’s to our parents.


    My absolute favorite thing to get in my bag was the orange and black wrapped mary jane peanut butter taffy candy.Those were so awesome and they don’t make em’ like they use to. The worst thing I dreaded getting was the pecans ( yes, I said PECANS ) some people would put in there.

    My most favorite treat to receive while trick or treating would be the reese cups!! My least favorite was the dum dum suckers ( or other suckers) with a tissue over them with eyes drawn with a black marker to make them look like a ghost!!

    My favorite Halloween treat was Reese’s peanut butter cups and my least favorite trick-or-treat handout was those fireballs! I remember sorting threw the candy and giving my Dad all the candy I didn’t like.

    My favorite handouts were homemade cookies with M&M ‘s in them with sprinkles on top. My least favorite handouts were the treat bags full of shaving cream that were stapled shut. That is not really a food item though. My least favorite food item was any left over candy saved from a previous Halloween, What a nasty treat!!!

    Back in the 60″ early 70’s I love the homemade treats the best.
    I know that is not much of a safe option now. But then it was the jackpot of treats!
    Least fav was my uncle’s whom conspired via the phone to each put a rock aka Charlie Brown in my bag. Hey I knew they did it but if it gave them some crazy fun… so be it ; )

    My favorite is a tie between two! There was a house that gave out full sized candy bars (and they were always a favorite) but there was also a house that gave out cartons of orange drink. I always loved both (and orange drink still makes me think of happy Halloween memories).
    My least favorite? Probably Dots. They stuck to my teeth and didn’t taste very good and made me unhappy.

    My least favorite Halloween treat was without a doubt Pennies! (why would anyone do that to a child on Halloween that is looking for a treat?) My favorite, even to this day, is KitKat. I even give them away now as an adult so that I could have the leftovers.

    i loved snickers candy bars. i still do! that was the best holloween candy ever….. but i got my chocolate tooth from my mom… at holloween she would try to eat my chocolate first! it was hard for her, as it is for me, to stay away from chocolate candy (especially candy with nuts). the absolute worst holloween treat was not even a treat. it was an apple! sometimes the old people did not go out to buy candy and where i lived, the elderly gave fruit! fruit….. yuk! not a good holloween treat for a child!

    truth be told, i love chocolate cookies with nuts. had they given out cookies wrapped individually then, i would have loved that. but as they say, its never too late…. welcome holloween chocolate cookies!!!!

    I remember when I was little getting PENNIES while Trick or Treating. Those were my least favorite things to get. My Favorite was getting big candy bars. Not these mini candy bars. We were lucky because we got to go to so many houses we might have 2 or 3 of those.

    My favorite treat had to be from my own mom. My mom has made about 300 cinnamon rolls for every Halloween. She hands them out to all of the parents who come with their kids. She even gave them out to some of her students and I always made sure that I got one. My least favorite hand out was Twizzlers. I’ve never liked them!

    My favorite Halloween treat was and still is Reese’s cups. With two brothers, one younger and one older, I had to hide my candy bag so they would not come steal Reese’s cups … savages. The least favorite had to be bags of chips. On Halloween I expected all this free candy just for dressing up in a ridiculous costume, and I get a bag of chips. Chocolate is much more satisfying than a bag of Lays.

    My absolutely favorite candy to get and hoard as a child were Snickers, they have a little bit of everything. I really hated anything cinnamon and peppermint when I was little.. and would push those aside to “share”. lol* Passing out cookies for Halloween would GREAT, and full disclosure, one, two or a handfull of those cookies may end up in my tummy 😉

    As a child my favorite thing to get were candy apples.That was still during the time when you knew and trusted your neighbors weren’t trying to hurt your children, and bobbing for apples and Halloween parties were still popular (I miss those days). My least favorite thing was black liquorice but, that was fine… My mom would eat it..YUCK!! lol!!

    Favorite: Little bags of Sugar Daddys…a caramel type of candy. Yellow and Red packaging. Small candy size easy for a child to eat.
    Least favorite: Dried out Moon Pies with a marshmallow spread covered in fake chocolate. They were scary and we used to throw them around in the front yard as fresbies after trick or treating.

    I have 3 favorites: 1. the popcorn balls made by our school librarian who lived down the street, 2. french fries from the neighbor across the street who set up their french fry stand in the driveway and gave out freebies for trick-or-treat (until the whole town started coming), and 3. Reeses peanut butter cups. My least favorite were pennies and the orange and black taffy that several people already mentioned.
