Candy Corn

Sweet with a waxy texture, candy corn [2] is a Halloween [3] staple. Its white, yellow, and orange colors were originally designed to mimic kernels of corn, but now this classic [4] can be found in all shapes, sizes, and colors.

Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar

There is nothing like receiving a king-size Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar [6] to make the other candies in your bucket fall by the wayside. First created in 1900, this creamy chocolate treat is simply an American classic and Halloween [7] staple.

Candy Lips

Trick-or-treaters of all ages get a kick out of candy lips [8]. Although they have an odd, waxy texture, they make up for it with their goofy design and nostalgia factor.

Classic Fun-Size Favorites

The best part of Halloween [9] is collecting loads of bite-size candies. Because it is hard to choose just one, candy companies have turned bestsellers into fun-size bars [10] for a variety of sweet, salty, and savory bites to pick out of our candy buckets.

Tootsie Rolls

This chewy, chocolaty candy was first created in 1896 and has since become a trick-or-treat classic. Ranging in sizes from tiny Midgees to jumbo bars, Tootsie Rolls [11] are beloved among all ages.
