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.

Not as bad as you think

2 Wax Lips

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

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

I'm pretty sure these aren't supposed to be edible

They look like PLASTIC HAPPY MEAL TOYS not candy!

4 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!

They are the best I don't know what your talking about

5 Lick Your Wounds Candy Scabs

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

I don't eat candy that looks like scabs whenever I look at scabs I feel like I'm gonna vomit

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

I grew up with calling "candy" sweets my Grandma would tell me off if I called it candy.
I still call it sweets.
Oh and what the hell is Lick Your Wounds Candy Scabs?

6 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.

The British ones Every Flavour were better.

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.

9 Chocolate Skittles

this is disgusting I'm glad they don't have fruity M&Ms -

Eew that sounds like the horrible candy

They sound real gross

fave toptens


10 Raisinets

The Contenders

11 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

This isn’t a candy... why is it on the list? Also, why mint? Isn’t that a popular flavor?

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

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

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

Uhhh I enjoy blow pops very much, but hey you do you.

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

Never had it because its not sold in Britain.


14 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

15 Chocolate Covered Jelly Beans

There nice with the cherry jelly belly

33 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.

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

They suck so bad they are worst the candy ever

Flavorless hard wax.

37 BeanBoozled Jelly Beans

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

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

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

43 Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Aw, the Cadbury ones are sooo good =(

This is good

What about Necco wafer?

Everything on the list (except for this [obviously] and chocolate gum) is awesome! - fireinside96

44 Razzles

Complete ripoff of what?

Also a complete ripoff. - surfacing

45 Garbage Pail Kids Gummies
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 Dots
48 Bit-O-Honey

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 like banana Larry taffy has to be my favorite
