Ready for a walk down memory lane, Halloween candy edition? There are so many different candies out there. Some of them are classics like Snickers, Hershey Bars, and Reese’s. Do you remember some candy from Halloween during your childhood that you can’t find anymore and maybe off the shelves forever?
Here are some candies you may have forgotten about. From Marathon Bars to Space Dust, how many of these candies did you use to get in your bag on Halloween?
1. Astro Pop
The Astro Pop was created by two rocket scientists who wanted the sucker to look like a rocket. It was a sucker that was supposed to be the longest-lasting on Earth. They were generally red, green, and yellow.
2. Marathon Bar
The Marathon Bar was meant to take a long time to eat. It was 8 inches of chocolate-covered caramel and gave us all a toothache. Do you remember the commercial with Patrick Wayne? The candy bar was phased out in the 1980s.
3. PB Max
Peanut butter lovers loved this candy bar. It also included oats and cookie, but it didn’t last too long on shelves. As a peanut butter lover myself, I could go for one of these…
From the makers of Almond Joy and Mounds, there was also PowerHouse. It had peanuts, fudge, and caramel. However, at some point when the company was bought by Hershey in the late 1980s, this candy bar disappeared.
5. Reggie Bar
The Reggie Bar was made in the late 1970s after New York Yankees Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in the 1977 World Series game. Reggie Bars were given at Yankee’s games and were a delicious mix of caramel, peanuts, and milk chocolate. You might also remember it as the Bun Bar.
6. Space Dust
Space Dust is very similar to Pop Rocks, but it wasn’t popular enough to stick around. Which one did you prefer as a kid?
7. Beech-Nut Peppermint Gum
Beech-Nut once made gum and now they are known for baby food. Interesting.
Bonkers were similar to Starburst but had a fruit filling. Do you remember their crazy commercials? Watch one below!
9. Butterfinger BBs
Butterfinger BBs were small Butterfinger balls that were advertised by the show The Simpsons. Unfortunately, they were discontinued about a decade ago, but we still have the original Butterfinger still around today!
Choco’Lite was an aerated chocolate bar with toffee-like crisps inside. They were only around from about 1970-1989.
Which candy do you miss the most? Do you remember all of these? You can still find some retro candy online at this website, so maybe they’re not entirely gone forever.
