In America, as a child, getting your favorite candy was very important. When I was young my favorite candy was Reese's peanut butter cup. This chocolate candy was very rare to get when trick or treating and you were very lucky if someone was handing it out. Every year the most popular type of candy changes so the best candy when I was a kid is very different to what is the best today. I will say that there is one Halloween classic candy that is still popular today, candy corn.
