Top 10 Worst Candies


The Top Ten

1 Black Licorice

TERRIBLE CANDY! My dad loves it, but I think that it is the worst candy known to man!

Black licorice is the WORST. It's the work of the devil! My neighbours hand it out to trick or treaters every Halloween as a joke.I think they are actually trying to poison them.

What were they thinking just because we love licorice in red does not mean to make it all black it insults the flaver I mean really you people are nuts and crazy for this puking garbage.

I was at the candy store when we were done shopping my sister bought black licorice (I've never tasted it before then) I tasted then spit it out ew.

2 Wax Lips

Candy product made of colored and flavored wax, molded to resemble a pair of oversized red lips.

Candy product made out of colored, cherry flavoured wax, created to look like a pair of lips, disgusting - AzureCrystals

You can't really eat them, its just some stupid American junk.

Has any kids ever tried to eat them?

3 Circus Peanuts

Why the heck is this on here?! These things are so yummy and they are super duper sweet and slightly chewy, but you are still able to eat it because they are very soft! These should never be on a worst candies list!

You don't wanna know what goes into these. These taste like stale old man smell

How is mint gum worse than circus peanuts? Circus peanuts are disgusting!

I hate these do not ever eat them...

6 Lick Your Wounds Candy Scabs

I have never tried it but on images, it looks like it was showing an image of fake blood on the scab and it is stuck onto a bandage. You put the bandage on you and start licking and cringing. It is even classified as one of the worst sweets.

I have never heard of this candy but it sounds kinda nasty

What kind of flavor it is real life scabs or cherry? Because it is so gross that you will vomit when you tatse it.

Yuck! - Ikura

7 Bertie Botts Every Flavor Jelly Beans

Love tricking people with these beans I got my sister to eat vomit and she thought it was tutti frutti before she tasted either! Laugh out loud

This harry potter beans are disgusting but amazing to make pranks!

I love the packaging on the ones from Universal, being a huge fan of Harry Potter, but I don't like to eat them very much.

Is it exist?

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.

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.

Candy corn is really gross in my opinion

12 Blow Pops

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.

I can only swallow the lollipop, so I have to inch my way around the lollipop so I don't choke and go to the hospital beacause of a lollipop that probably didn't taste good! - l9me

These r so good

13 Good and Plenty

This candy blows

I love co cks in my a ss

14 Mint Gum

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!

Some mint gum is okay, but I only like the kinds that aren't burn-your-mouth strong/really minty

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.

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

16 Chocolate Covered Jelly Beans

What type off stupid person would make this

20 Chocolate Covered Bugs and Spiders

One they taste nasty that makes you want to puke for real so its a bad idea to make these things

That’s just wrong - blackflower

21 Whoppers

Do not buy if get trick or treating throw at house that gave you them

I love whoppers

More like doo doo pellets because they look like rabbit poop.

Please explain why this is not WAY higher, it’s the definition of an “old lady candy” Even more so than those soft peppermints

22 Red Licorice

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

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

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

Love twizzlers

23 Almond Joy
24 Kinder Eggs

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.

You should see the Kinder Egg Man... Made me never wanna eat Kinder eggs again! 0.0

They taste like they were made in 2 seconds. Oh, wait, I'm talking about Kinder Surprise, am I?

I liked them when I was little.

31 White Chocolate Maggots

33 Payday Payday

Looks like a breakfast bar lol.

There's no candy on it at all just nuts

34 Tootsie Roll

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.

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

Way too hard to chew... also it taste like disgusting caramel

The choc is an acquired taste. - Ikura

37 Nerds Nerds

Hell yeah I can touch my toes

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!

Some of these are bad, some of these are good.
Very Bad: Skunk Spray, Dead Fish, Rotten Egg
Bad: Moldy Cheese, Barf, Spoiled Milk, Canned Dog Food, Booger, Stinky Socks
Ok: Lawn Clippings, Toothpaste, Baby Wipes, Juicy Pear, Buttered Popcorn, Licorice, Coconut
Good: Lime, Peach, Chocolate Pudding, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Caramel Corn
Very Good: Berry Blue, Tutti-Fruitti

39 Chocolate Covered Cherries

These are absolutely the best things ever

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

Are fruit salads licorice, childhood I was addicted.

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

41 Twizzlers

So good why are they on here

42 Dots

Complete poop, just leave!

43 Razzles

Complete ripoff of what?

Also a complete ripoff. - surfacing

44 Fruity M&M'S

Too bad they have chocolate skittles. I love these confections

These sound pretty bad

There is fruity m ms?

45 Peeps

Peeps are amazing

They are not bad

Love the texture of Peeps. I sometimes age mine for added chewiness.

Yummmy in my tummy

46 Snickers

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

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.

It sure did not make ME snicker!

47 Garbage Pail Kids Gummies
48 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.

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

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.

I don't like normal bananas why ruin the liitle love I had for them
