It is the time of year for anyone with a sweet tooth to rejoice as Halloween is just around the corner. Stores everywhere are already stocking there shelves with Halloween themed candy. Perhaps the oldest of these sweet treats is candy corn, and it keeps coming back every year. Candy corn dates back to the 1880’s . Some other Halloween oldies but goodies include popcorn balls, wax lips, and caramel apple pops. Despite some of these candies dating back to the 1800’s it was not until the 1970’s that candy took center stage during the Halloween season. In fact, trick-or-treating did not start until the 1930’s and at that time kids were given coins, fruit and nuts as treats instead of candy.
