I was never a pillowcase kid. Fill the sheets that I put my head on with the goods, risking an errant Mr. Goodbar besmirching my sleeping quarters? No thanks.

While the variety of candies seems endless, all of them fall into two main categories: crystalline (typically soft and creamy) and non-crystalline (generally hard and brittle). The deciding factor is how the preparation process manipulates the sucrose molecules within sugar. Mmm, crystallization.
It's that time of year again: The pumpkins are carved, the costumes are all laid out with care, and taking candy from strangers is not only allowed, it's encouraged. But, with all the focus on the tastebuds, just what happens in your brain when you're eating candy?
Everybody loves candy, but candymakers still don’t mind hopping on board the marketing machine of a big summer movie.

Here are 10 delicious candies and…
