Halloween History

Did you know that it wasn’t until the early 1900s that most Americans found chocolate was affordable and not just a luxury item? Trick-or-treating was already a time-honored tradition back then but, in those early decades of the 20th century, it looked a little different. Most American kids went from house to house collecting apples, homemade baked goods, coins, or small toys instead of candy.

However, the mass-production of chocolate changed Halloween forever. In the 1950s, big candy companies wanted to sell more product, and they knew breaking into the trick-or-treating market was a mouth-watering opportunity for their businesses. Advertisements encouraged American neighborhoods to give out candy Halloween treats to the kids in their communities. Indeed, it was much easier and convenient to buy candy in bulk than make homemade treats for every single child that lived in your area. The idea was a hit; who can say “no” to candy?! Neighborhoods were on-board to add some sweet fun to this annual, community-friendly event. (Of course, kids were definitely thrilled to participate, too!)
