Most Popular Halloween Candy

The days of apples as favorite Halloween treats are long since gone. Today, it's all about the candy. And just what are the favorite Halloween candies among trick-or-treaters? According to Lycos, the Internet search engine, the most searched-for Halloween candy in 2004 were:

  1. Tootsie Roll
  2. Hershey's Milk Chocolate
  3. Nestle Crunch
  4. Nerds
  5. Hot Tamales
  6. Candy Corn
  7. Snickers Bar
  8. Baby Ruth
  9. Reese's Pieces
  10. Almond Joy
  11. Milky Way
  12. Razzles
  13. Life Savers
  14. M & M's
  15. Sour Patch

If you can't quite swallow handing out sugary treats, there are non-sweet alternatives that still might go over big with the trick-or-treaters. Halloween-themed stickers, temporary tattoos, or pencils are popular. So are small bottles of bubbles, small cans of playdoh, or noisemakers. Edible, non-candy treats can include individual-sized packages of pretzels or sugar-free gum.
