Halloween hasn't changed much over the decades, but there are subtle changes. Back in the 1960s, you would not have seen a bloody little zombie going door to door, just as today you will likely not see many wee Gilligans. Similarly, the treats given out have evolved over the years. 

We are rolling back the clock half a century. Let's take a nostalgic trick-or-treat trot through a neighborhood in the 1960s. Here are some candies you might have seen on offer. You can only take one. 

See how your picks stack up against others! Don't worry — there's an endless supply of sweets in this fantasy.
  1. The first house is offering two homemade treats. Remember when people used to do that? Anyway, the options are candy apples or popcorn balls. What will you get stuck in your teeth?

  3. Moving on. This next place has some candy offering a variety of flavors. Which do you prefer?
