Still, I do remember watching the news with my mom about having candy X-rayed - she just told me not to eat anything that wasn't pre-packaged or that looked like it had something pointy in it. Simple enough.
I'm a product of the 90's, and I don't know anyone who wasn't under strict parental orders not to eat anything before we got home.

Stuff like popcorn balls were okay if they came from people we knew. When I was really young, everything got a brief inspection to make sure it wasn't moldy or full of needles or anything, but once I was old enough to go out with friends and not my parents (late elementary school, probably), I was trusted to not shove suspicious-looking candy from strangers down my throat.

I have never even heard of x-raying a kid's Halloween loot.
