Halloween is the best time of the year for those of us with a sweet tooth to get our noms on. But sometimes, pitifully lame candy will be handed to trick ‘r treaters and they have no choice but to suck it up (literally). So stop being cheap. Here are 15 candies you definitely should not hand out (and nobody wants to get) on Halloween.
1. Tootsie Roll
Feel a whoop coming up, a whoop coming up…(that’s just us regurgitating).
2. Dum Dums
Remember the big let down feeling you’d get eating these… only to have the sticky paper sticks fall apart in your mouth? And what the heck is the mystery flavor?
3. Super Bubble
No. Just…no. Especially when they are half-open.
4. Necco Wafer
The candy that makes you feel like you’re being punished. Can you feel the chalky taste on your teeth yet?
5. Mary Janes
Nothing is sadder than biting onto a tasteless molasses candy. Another winner from Necco brands! The finest candy made in 1847.
Handing out this cheap version of M&Ms is guaranteed to give you dirty looks.
7. Mini Sun-Maid Raisins
Gee thanks…what we’ve always wanted — stale sticky raisins.
8. Werther’s Original
Isn’t this the type of candy we’d find at the bottom of grandma’s purse?
7. Candy Corn
Not even this Halloween special candy could please us.
You always tried to trade those smarties for someone’s Milky Way (it never worked). Five packs of smarties? Nope, still not working.
9. Peanut Butter Kisses
Yay! Lets get our teeth stuck together!
This is a real treat (if you lived in the depression era).
11. Sugar Daddy
This candy’s name doesn’t rub us the right way.
12. Jolly Ranchers
Always a pleasure to eat, if you can successfully pry its wrappers off. Even if you do get it off, half is usually nasty and melted.
13. Dubble Bubble
You don’t even bother trying to trade them. Not even your 80 year old grandfather will take them. A nice dusting of pink powder, 30-seconds of flavor, and the stiffness of a jaw breaker makes this one an epic fail.
14. Good & Plenty
Licorice in a pill form? Exactly what we wanted.
How cruel do you have to be? What are you? The schmuck-dentist-grinch of Halloween?
