Top 10 Worst Candies


The Top Ten

1 Black Licorice

I have never tried black licorice but I do not want to find out what it tastes like. Just about every person I have ever met thinks that it is the most horrible invention ever. The amount of hatred that the candy gets it crazy. Nobody likes it so I will never try it ever. - DrayTopTens

It's nasty if I eat black licorice it makes me gag

Black licorice came first. Whats so cool about black licorice is its flavor comes from the actual plant-licorice root. Its also the most unique candy.

Black gross and madness

6 Lick Your Wounds Candy Scabs

Who wants to lick a scab? This is disgusting. - RedTheGremlin

No. Just no.

Why does America like sour candy even the chocolate bars have a taste like parmesan cheese or baby sick.

Not really. And sour candy is one of the best, so please don't hate on America for having good taste. - RedTheGremlin

Oh... my... Arceus.

7 Bertie Botts Every Flavor Jelly Beans

Only Harry Potter fans know what these are

Dumbledore was right about these, when I tried them. I wonder if the ones in London in the studio tour are better.

Is it exist?

Ugh. you think your reaching for a lemon when you hand is grabbing foot cheese

8 Fear Factor Candy


Dude, keep in mind. They would never keep the stinger on this. Don't be dumb. LOTS of people eat bugs and/or arachnids to cure their hunger. - iiKyodaiKickz

I tried the scorpion ones once for a dare - the candy tastes like cough medicine, the scorpion is bitter and the whole thing has a sawdust texture and gets stuck in your teeth. Gross.

Some people actually eat insects, I think everyone here needs to calm down. I've never tried one and it sounds disgusting, but I'm not going I go entirely crazy over a piece of candy.

I think that it is unsanitary to put a bug inside a candy REALLY GROSS PEOPLE.

10 Raisinets

The Contenders

11 Candy Corn Candy Corn Candy corn is a candy most often found in the United States and Canada, popular primarily around Halloween.

I love candy corn. I don't see why it gets so much hate, it's one of the best. - RedTheGremlin

Candy corn is really gross in my opinion

Whoever says candy corn is bad deserves to be shot in the head

12 Blow Pops

These r so good

I like these babies there so good

How can this be on the worst list anyway. I love blow pops. They are good. With gum in side and stuff. The gum flavor does run out fast but I still like it

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE don't put blow pops in the top 10 worst candy list.

13 Mint Gum

It's not gross, and gum is not a candy. - RedTheGremlin

Huh? Mint gum is GREAT! That’s the WHOLE REASON gum was made! And gum is not a candy, this needs to be taken off the list.

I LOVE mint gum, it's the best.

I really don't like strong mint gums at all. If it's a sweet mint I'll take it, but certainly not those strong varieties. Gives me a headache. But I absolutely ADORE black and red licorice. Yum!

14 Good and Plenty

15 Harry Potter Cockroach Clusters

Ok Ron was thinking of doing a prank on his brothers Fred and George when they gave him an acid pop which burnt his tongue, he was thinking of giving them Cockroach Clusters. (Prisoner of Azkaban) But they actually made these? Please bring back the British Harry Potter sweets. Yeah I know they sell Harry Potter sweets in London. But if you go into a sweet shop and find American imports of the chocolate frogs and every flavour beans they are a rip-off.

Never heard in the book

This stinks like mad! I tasted it once and the taste is like sawdust!

Eww why is it a thing

Almond joy are great candy 🤷🏻‍♀️So why are they on this list

23 Red Licorice

I hate Twizzlers - RedTheGremlin

Twizzlers taste like cardboard with some sugar on top. It's sticky and it's hard to chew! Twizzlers are gross.

Red licorice is the best candy ever! I don't know why it's on the list...

Strawberry twizzlers LITERALLY taste like plastic. Most disgusting candy to ever exist.

24 Kinder Eggs

I liked them when I was little.

America has got Choco Treasure now. Its still a chocolate egg with a toy, but seeing how thick Americans are they made sure its safe for 3 year olds when Kinder Surprises weren't for 3 year olds.

I love kinder eggz!

Gun or giving a Kinder Egg to a toddler.

34 Tootsie Roll

5 year old me: mommy I want a tootsie roll
Mom: sure
6 years later...
Mom: I bought tootsie rolls want some?
11 year old me: ew get those nasty things away from me! - Naiolmaih

I don't know what flavor it is. Chocolate? Nope. Probably whatever flavoring the candy company has left - Haumea

The choc is an acquired taste. - Ikura

I can't believe this was not added. Wax chocolate candy no thank you. This candy used to cost a Penny and it's not even worth that. Tootsie Pops are gross too. Everyone knows it takes more than three licks to finish one but they are to gross to eat past three.

38 BeanBoozled Jelly Beans

There pretty bad but toothpaste is pretty good it taste like mint

In all honesty, I don't think it's fair to have things that are intentionally gross on this list.

It depends whether you get a bad one or not!

These are okay. Taste Meter: Worst, Okay, Awesome! ( My opinion)
Worst: Moldy Cheese Barf
Okay: Rotten Egg, Canned Dog Food, Skunk Spray, Stinky Socks, Booger
Awesome: Baby Wipes, Lawn Clippings, Toothpaste!

39 Chocolate Covered Cherries

Once again, I hate fruit. - RedTheGremlin

These things rule. I'm sorry, I'm trying not to curse right here: WHY IS THIS HIGHER ON THIS LIST THAN NECCO WAFERS? WHAT?

40 Licorice

Yuck! who eats licorice?!? it tastes like cardboard and fruit roll ups... everything else on the list is better then this

Yummmy in my tummy

46 Snickers

Originally called Marathon Bars but renamed Snickers in early 90s. Not really the nicest bar but I have started to like them a bit. I usually eat the sized ones in Celebrations tubs.

What!? These were like number 2 on the best candies list!?

It sure did not make ME snicker!

47 Bit-O-Honey

This is the Best! It doesn't belong on this list! I love it!

Who put this on this list is insaaainn.

48 Garbage Pail Kids Gummies
49 Fruit Stripe Gum

First and foremost, gum is not candy. It's gum. However, this should be on the list due to the extreme disappointment caused by its consumption. The four seconds (if that) of bliss experienced by the chewer is not worth the extreme disappointment. Just ugh.

50 Banana Laffy Taffy

I think I tried this once... - Naiolmaih

They should take this off and make it into a different flavor, like blue raspberry or something. I like cherry better anyway...

Other flavors is taste good, but banana flavor is the WORST flavor!

Banana flavored anything is disgusting.
