1920s: Baby Ruth
The year Baby Ruth came out (1921), Babe Ruth lead the MLB with 59 home runs. To put that into perspective, Bob Meusel finished second place with 24 home runs.

The Curtiss Candy Company claims the chocolate bar was inspired by President Grover Cleveland's oldest daughter. Babe Ruth disagreed and came out with his own candy with the tagline "Babe Ruth's Own Candy." A lawsuit ensued and in 1931, a patent court ruled in favor of the candy company.

1960s: SweeTARTS
Sweet and sour lovers were all over the many flavors of SweeTARTS. Lime (the former green flavor) and orange are two OG flavors that have been retired.

Fruit flavored taffy that came with jokes printed on the wrapper, what more do you want? Here's one of the jokes, "What tea is the hardest to swallow? Reality!" I bet that killed in 1971!

1980s: Skittles
Skittles weren’t widely available in the US until 1982. I have trouble imagining a world where I can't go to a bodega and buy some Skittles n' sh*t.

1990s: AirHeads
A fresh, soft chew AirHeads candy is delicious. Since 1986 their intense fruity flavor has been a crowd-pleaser. I'm not sure why it took four years to catch on in Halloween world, but it was worth it.
