I think it probably depends on the area you live in and how trendy the parents tend to be. Like whether or not they've joined the oh-my-god-my-kid-will-be-obese bandwagon or if candy is just so readily available that it's not special anymore. I happen to live in a very low-income area with many immigrant families that struggle just to put meals on the table. Halloween candy is a HUGE treat for the kids in this town because most never have it except on holidays.
When my kids were trick or treating, many many years ago, I personally hated when they came home with a bag of tiny toys and such because I knew it would just end up on the floor or in the bottom of their closet to be thrown away later. At least with candy, it would all be gone soon. I like consumable gifts!
