There's a chill in the air, colorful leaves have fallen to the ground, and pumpkin-flavored treats are everywhere you look. The fall season is always one to look forward to, not least of all because of the Halloween candy. Whether you're a kid trick-or-treating or a nostalgic adult, there's no shame in indulging in some Halloween candy.

And while "fun-size" candy bars will probably never go out of season, not every Halloween treat has stood the test of time. Here are some of the most beloved Halloween candies that have been discontinued—pour one out for them at this year's festivities.

These hard candies were sort of like SweeTARTS—aka, they were pretty much pure sugar. But they were shaped like skeleton bones, which was perfect for the spooky season.

Candy Corn Hershey's Kisses

These were super fun for baking projects with Halloween candy. But candy corn is a polarizing option, so it's not too surprising that these Halloween Hershey's candies didn't last. You can still get "Monster Kisses," but they're regular milk chocolate-flavored.

Wonder Balls were available year-round, not just during Halloween. But if you had one of these in your trick-or-treating pail, it was a good night.

The fun-size bags of this candy were some of the best chocolate-based candies you could get while trick-or-treating. Sadly, you'll only find regular Butterfingers on store shelves these days.

Hershey's Kissables

Another discontinued Hershey's Kisses spinoff was Kissables, which were a cross between M&Ms and the original Hershey's Kisses. Mars has the candy-coated chocolate game cornered, though, and Kissables were discontinued in the 2000s.

Candy Corn Dots

Dots are a classic movie candy, but did you know there was once a candy corn version, too? If you're one of the people who swear candy corn is the best Halloween candy, you'll be disappointed to know this Dots flavor was discontinued.
