This was an important decade for the candy industry. In fact, many of today's most popular sweet treats can be traced back to the '20s.
The 1930s introduced The Wizard of Oz, the cheeseburger and these fine candies.

In the '40s, kids with candy cigarettes emulated glamorous, chain-smoking movie stars. And five-and-dime stores boasted these fun treats:
Sugary candies encountered junk food competition when the '50s introduced McDonald's restaurants.
Sixties-era kids munched on these candies while watching a fascinating new TV show called Sesame Street.
Along with new candies, the '70s gave us the Apple computer and Star Wars.
Kids born in the '80s and '90s cherish their childhood memories, which no doubt include fabulous candies. Unfortunately, those who named candy of the 1980s didn't create any names we'd actually like to borrow. Would you want to name your baby Airhead, Nerd, Runt, Skittle or Spree?
And the most popular candies in the nation don't provide much inspiration either. Information Resources Inc. recently looked at the top-selling candies in the U.S. and among the favorites are Tic Tacs, Hershey's Kisses, Butterfinger, Milky Way, Starburst, 3 Musketeers, Dove, Twizzlers, Twix, Snickers, Hershey's Bar and (of course) M&M's.
