Halloween Candy

Candy treats for Halloween!

It's hard to believe, but Halloween wasn't always the candy overload it is today! The tradition of donning costumes and going door-to-door asking for treats began in the late 1930s. It wasn't until the late 1940s that trick-or-treating became widespread on a national scale, and even then, fall candy wasn't the most popular treat. Kids trick-or-treating in the 40s and 50s received all sorts of treats - coins, nuts, fruit, cookies, cakes, and toys. It wasn't until the mid-1950s that candy manufacturers realized what a great Halloween treat candy would make. By the 1970s, candy for Halloween was the deemed the preferred treat. Today, an average jack-o-lantern bucket carries about 250 pieces of candy amounting about 9,000 calories and about three pounds of sugar!
