Wax lips and fangs presented us with our earliest childhood paradox: Lying in the vast gulf between candy and gum, how could facial features made of wax taste so good? And at what point do you stop wearing them and start chewing?
As kids, we knew that Halloween was the most important holiday of the year. Why? Because the opportunity to amass a fortune in sweets was way more interesting than a chemistry set or pair of new pajamas.
With the benefit of hindsight, we ransack our childhood memories to reveal what kind of candy we liked the best come trick-or-treat time, and what those candies meant to us, in ranked order. So please join us bright and early tomorrow morning to see if you agree.
