What is the Worst Halloween Candy? Eick October 21, 2008 Candy 19 Comments With Halloween just around the corner, CVS is full of “scary deals” on giant bags of candy, and the fun size candy bars are popping up in offices and neighborhoods across America. What other American holidays allow you to go door-to-door and receive free food? Answer: none of them. But free candy at a door isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sometimes, the candy you receive was not even worth the trudge up a 20 foot long driveway. With this thought in mind, Serious Eats recently published their list of the Top Ten Worst Halloween Candy. Additionally, other blogs, such as Food Fight, having been weighing in with obvious nominees, such as these: The Serious Eats list of the ten worst contains a few items you would expect to make the list, such as these orange, white and yellow “treats”, or as I like to call them, concentrated evil in candy form: However, the list is lacking some of America’s worst candy, perhaps because even though they are popular, they aren’t typically associated with Halloween. I’m thinking here about two of the most foul and disgusting candy creations to ever grace the planet earth: So Good readers, I’m looking for you to weigh in on this one. What is the worst Halloween candy out there? The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Eick Latest posts by Eick (see all) Live in DC?

Thanks for the 12 cents, I’ll go buy nothing. ok, actual candy? probably misc. old people hard sucking candy. just hook up some m&m’s or some snickers, people!!! Reply Youppi October 21st, 2008 good & plenty also certainly blows. Reply Hillary October 21st, 2008 Haha, definitely hate the “miscellaneous wrapped hard candies”. Reply Megan October 21st, 2008 I say the candy pumpkins are as bad as the candy corn. These too are equally craptastic: the filled caramels The peanut butter chew and DOTS Reply Jon October 21st, 2008 I feel like circus peanuts are the worst, because they look so good! I always expect them to taste like creamcicles not orange colored vinyl car seats. Reply suicide_blond October 22nd, 2008 i think most kids (me included) would rather eat real corn than “candy corn” and that makes it suuuuch a let down… xoxo Reply Looking Glass October 23rd, 2008 OKAY Lol, I agree with Hillary on this one. Those ‘special candies’ you know, the ones that have no brand, no writing and come in various, mainly darkly coloured wrappers. The twisty kind. Then you open them only because you ate all the good stuff but you want your sugar high and dont want to waste all of your 2-hour trekking for treats. They taste like the taint of a bull elephant. But worse. Reply Snarling Coyote October 26th, 2008 I write this sucking on a Dum-Dum, eyeing a bag of Necco wafers, thinking fond thoughts about trading some with my mom for her Good n’ Plenty. None of these candies is for the unexperienced palate, I’ll grant, but there are those of us out there who prefer them. Reply Rosscott October 30th, 2008 Good & Plenty. Definitely. Reply Caroline December 16th, 2008 Dots happen to be the WORST candy they can give us. I don’t even eat them, I just throw them in the garbage. Reply Denise October 8th, 2009 L&O SVU explicitly states that candy corn is the corn of choice for pedos. I think I’ve made my point. Also: Necco wafers are not the same as smarties. Smarties suck the life out of my mouth and taste like sour. Neccos taste like nothing. It’s like a desert full of sterile nothing. DOTS RULE. Reply rianee October 5th, 2010 i think twislers and licorish and circis peanuts and i hate dots also good and plenty Reply rianee October 5th, 2010 and carnal creans or what ever theyre called Reply starfish October 15th, 2010 i hate butterfinger and bon bon bum because butterfinger has too much butter and i hate that and bon bon bum has a sugerey inside so when i tried to eat it it tasted terrible .If you come to my house you can still see a jarful of those things plus some stuff i hate Reply starfish October 15th, 2010 ohh yeah i still have my old candy from two years ago and about 6 years ago when I hated fruitroll-ups but now i eat them everyday Reply DK March 1st, 2011 Good and Plenty are good you just have to get used to them. I hate when they tell you to grab 1 candy per person. Probably DOTS and Tootsie Rolls are the lamest. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
