What retro candy is your favorite?

It’s Halloween time, and we’ve done all the stories about the most popular Halloween candy items currently, but it’s time to take a look at the retro ones.

That’s right, we’re going to dive into the candy that we knew back in the day. The ones that maybe you can still find out there, but they don’t come top of mind like Snickers, M&Ms and Reese’s Cups do.

The good folks at Coventry Direct took a look at the most popular retro candy by state earlier this year, and it brought back so many memories.

“Abba-Zabba and Charleston Chews are the most popular, appearing as the favorite retro candy of 3 states,” Coventry Direct said of their findings. “Chocolate-covered raisins, Almond Joys, Bottle Caps, Butterscotch, Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews, Good & Plenty, and Heath Bars also got some love as each is the favorite retro candy in 2 states.”

Their study says that the 100 Grand Bar is the most popular here in North Carolina. That stands out, because it was not tops in any other state.

“They don’t make candy like they used to, do they? From the bright colors to the wide assortments of sweets, there will always be something magical and whimsical about trips to the local candy store. Even after years and years, our childhood favorites continue to be sold today.”

So let’s take a look at what we think the five BEST retro candy items you need to stock up on are.
