Top 40 Halloween Candies

HALLOWEENCANDYTHUMB 560x315Candy is available at gas stations, grocery stores, ballparks, movie theaters, and just about anywhere food is sold. They even sell candy at Academy. So how come, once a year, children lose their minds over candy and go from house to house, asking for more candy?

There are some very obvious reasons, and some psychological ones that we are just plain not going to talk about, that cause us all, children and adults, to go nuts over candy during Halloween. For starters, it’s free. Although adults don’t go trick-r-treating, their kids or nieces and nephews do. All you have to do is let the little minions do the hard work while reaping the sugary filled rewards. The other reason is because some candy is only given out on Halloween.

What exactly is Candy Corn? Well, to be blunt, it is sugar, sesame oil, and some honey. It apparently doesn’t go bad either, which makes it even more mysterious. How many times have you found a tiny bag of Candy Corn from ten years ago and ate it just to see what it would be like and it tasted the exact same as it does brand new?

Regardless of how it works, no other candy says Halloween like Candy Corn.
