What do you call things such as candies, chocolate bars and so on that are usually placed next to the checkout (counter) in a supermarket in order to attract people's attention? I think there is a name or a set phrase for them but I can't remember which is. Would you please help me out? Thank you.

Hi paride1970,
The items you have named could be classified as 'sweets'. They could also be classified as 'impulse buy' items.
