Top 10 Worst Halloween Candies

It’s Halloween which means it’s trick or treating time. You’ll probably get some good stuff, but we’re not talking about that today. We’re looking at the other end of the spectrum; the worst things to get in your Halloween bag. Disclaimer this is only talking about CANDY. So pretzels, fruit, or any other non candy item is excluded from this list.
The Top Ten
1 Candy Corn Candy corn is a candy most often found in the United States and Canada, popular primarily around Halloween.

Have you ever wondered what candle wax tastes like? Well, Candy Corn is probably as close as you can get. I know this is a divisive candy, but to me, it's not worthy of the candy label. There are two types of people in this world: those who like Candy Corn and those who cannot understand how people like it. I'm part of the latter group.

Can someone please bring Candy Corn to the UK? I'm not a little kid, so I know that sounds immature. But I'm just curious to know what it tastes like and why so many Americans hate it.

Those candy corns I've tried before have a very weird texture in my mouth, which I don't like, by the way.

2 Tootsie Roll

I don't know what it is about Tootsie Rolls, but the flavor is so weird I cannot stand it. I'm normally all for chocolate candies, but not these ones. The bigger ones are the worst. These are one of those cheap candies that you get a lot of, and for me, they dwell at the bottom of the bag because who's really going to eat these first? I only eat them when I've already eaten the good stuff and I'm just that desperate.

I love Candy Corn (they have a sweet, honeyesque taste) and Candy Apples (you shouldn't accept Candy Apples from strangers, but as an actual treat, they are very good), but Tootsie Rolls are as bland as they come.

3 Candy Canes

Why would someone put Christmas candy in kids' Halloween bags?

Never got one on Halloween but heard stories.

Candy canes are for Christmas!

4 Bit-O-Honey
5 Twizzlers

I hate licorice with a passion. I don't know how people actively enjoy these things. I get rid of them the first chance I get. Easily one of the more overrated candies in the Halloween world.

Literally tastes like flavored rope.

6 Circus Peanuts
7 Waxy Lips

This is an abomination from hell.

8 Smarties Smarties are a colour-varied sugar-coated chocolate confectionery. They have been manufactured since 1937.

Another easy and lazy candy to pass out. If you wanted to taste chalk, this is almost as close as you can get. Also, these things look like pills or drugs of some kind. I actually used to like these as a kid, but in retrospect, these were terrible, and I don't know how or why I liked them so much.

Ugh. You might as well be eating chalk. I hate Smarties.

9 Fireballs
10 Gummy Bears
The Contenders
11 Black Liquorice
12 Licorice
13 Necco Wafers

These things are so unappealing that I'd honestly immediately hold a grudge against any sadistic monster who hands these out. They're so damn chalky. If you defend these, you are either from the 1850s or you like licking chalkboards for fun. Get these things far away from me and permanently ban them.

Might as well eat your colored chalk!

14 Orange Fizz Bottles
15 Starburst Starburst is the brand name of a box-shaped, fruit-flavored soft taffy candy manufactured by The Wrigley Company, a subsidiary of Mars, Incorporated.
16 Haribos
17 Hot Tamales

Why are these only a Halloween candy? I've never seen them anywhere else. Maybe at a gas station convenience store, but who buys these out of all the available options? Who in their right mind hands these out? They're literally the evil twin of Mike and Ike's. Honestly, they don't even deserve to be recognized as candy.

18 Butterfinger
19 Nerds

This may be a hot take, but I'm sorry, it has to be said: these things are overrated. Maybe someone should explain the appeal of them to me because I cannot, for the life of me, figure it out. There are so many better options to go for in the Halloween bag. I'd rather not eat bits of gravel because that's what they taste like.
