Last year, right before Halloween, we did our own informal survey of Favorite Halloween Candy in Atlantic and Cape May County, New Jersey.

The oldest candy that made our previous list was first established in the 13th Century. That's the year 1300, or, more than 700 years ago.

Many of the favorite Halloween, "Trick or Treat" favorites (listed below) date back to the 1800s and early-to-mid 1900s.

Candy manufacturers have been able to endure for many decades and longer because their products are almost addictive.

FUN FACT: The candy called “Smarties” is still made in New Jersey and they are made by 5th Generation Candy makers. Smarties were created by Edward Dee. Dee died in 2019 at the age of 95 years old. His family still makes them today.
