Halloween Candy--What's your favorite?

It's the time of year for that all-important question--What is your favorite Halloween candy? For me, it's candy corn. No contest!

According to Wikipedia, Candy Corn was created in the 1880's by a man named George Renninger.

Some more facts:

~20 million pounds (over 9000 tons) of candy corn are sold annually.
~Each piece is approximately three times the size of a whole kernel from a ripe or dried ear.
~Candy corn pieces are traditionally cast in three colors: a broad yellow end, a tapered orange center, and a pointed white tip.

There are recipes online that tell you how you can make your own candy corn. Me, I'd rather just buy it. :)

What's your favorite Halloween Candy?
