If you grew up craving candy bars as a child, you knew that Halloween was the most exciting holiday of the year. You could get every different kind of candy known to man just by knocking on people's doors. It was hard work with one heck of a payoff. The best part about it was the fact that you were introduced to new candies that you may have never heard of (or if you had sneaky parents, candies you were told were for adults). Upon tasting these new additions to your arsenal, you figured out what you loved he best about candy and what you wanted to avoid. You may have thought that coconut was the devil's sweet and pushed more toward caramel. You may have looked at a Baby Ruth and threw it to the dog (not recommended). Whatever your preference in candy, you could probably spot your favorite from a mile away.
