Retro Trick or Treat: Remember These Classic Candies?!

With the season of Halloween upon us, you’ve likely prepared your children’s costume, perhaps a costume of your own. Fresh-carved Jack-O-Lanterns adorn the front porch, and a big bowl of candy is waiting behind the front door for Trick-or-Treaters. It’s all nifty and good, but somehow, Halloween used to seem so much more magical. There weren’t conveniently single-sized wrapped candies sold in big warehouse-sized plastic bags. No way. The Halloween of yesteryear was messy and unpredictable. And that made it a million times better. Would you get a dozen Pixy Stix that would break open in your pillowcase before the night ended? Pennies for UNICEF? Homemade Caramel Popcorn Balls wrapped with fat rounds of yarn? Crab apples fresh picked from the neighbors tree? You never knew.

But one thing was for sure. You were likely to score with at least a few handfuls of classic candies from Ferrara Pan, a packet of Lik-M-Aid powder, or a full-sized 3 Musketeers candy bar (wrapped in that classic red-white-and blue wrapper with actual musketeers on front). What were your favorite candies from your childhood? Thanks to the online curator of The Candy Wrapper museum, you no longer have to just imagine your favorites. You can now walk down memory lane by viewing the actual wrappers of hundreds of classic candies.  We’ve pulled together a few of our favorites to kick off our own Retro Trick or Treat Fest. Check them out, then head of over and peruse all the deliciously classic exhibits on display at the museum!
