Worst Halloween candy? (1 Viewer)

I suppose you could call this a spinoff of the Thanksgiving side dish thread...

What's the worst Halloween candy?

My list

1. Mike & Ike

2. Bit 'O Honey

3. Mounds (not a fan of coconut)

 
I love Mike & Ikes by the by.
If you were my brother - you could've had them all ;) Then again, I'm not a big fan of jellybeans, licorice or twizzlers either. Maybe it's just me?!
 
apples

or my candy. i bought a bag of mixed candy when i moved into my house in 2000.

i still have the bag in the original halloween bowl we bought. if you morons are stupid enough to allow your kids to go to strangers' houses begging for candy, you're gonna get 6 year old clark bars. bank it

:hot:

 
Candy or carmel apples. Never once did I eat these as a kid and I always threw them away, lest my vocal cords be torn to threads by hidden razor blades.

Love twizzlers, not licorice. Jellybeans are kinda eh. Starburst are top notch however.
Starburst Strawberry = Underrated!! Perhaps the only thing "pink" I like. ;)
 
Looove candy corn. WTF are those things that come in plain orange or black wrappers? Might be taffy or something? Always been turned off by those.

:unsure: We just talking candy here?

 
Raisins (one house in the neighborhood always gave out the small boxes.

Peanuts (one cheapo would just toss a couple peanuts, still in shell, into your bag.)

 
Here is my nasty Halloween candy story.

So this was some time back in the early 80’s. I was pretty young, maybe about 5 or 6 and my brother was a couple of years older. This was in the day when kids that age did the whole Halloween thing without a parent watching them. An innocent time, if you will.

Anyhow, it was a dark and stormy night. We had a pretty good haul going, and were starting to hit the last few houses on the fringe of the neighborhood before packing it in. We knocked on a house that neither of us knew well, not expecting much. Well, lo and behold it was a jackpot. Not only were they giving candy bars, they were giving the “full-size” version. This was the prize of the night, a full-size candy bar! Who the hell gets one of those on Halloween? Never mind that neither of us knew the name of the thing, this was a trophy to wave in front of other kids and brag about.

So a day or two go by and my brother and I work our way down the pile. Soon, all that is left is the crown jewel itself. It had a name like “Big Chief”, and it was indeed a monster. We each unwrapped the bar and dug in…

and almost vomited. Turns out this godawful thing was chocolate covered jelly. And it was nasty jelly. This was not the kind of thing we expected. One bite was all it took , and the rest went in the trash. Needless to say, we learned a big life lesson that day – one that we never forgot. A few years later, when we reached our prime “flaming poop in a bag” and “doorbell ditch” years, these folks paid dearly, but it was never enough payback for the loss of my childhood innocence.

:goodposting: Yeah, they're like some faux peanut-butter flavor of something. Maybe salty burnt peanut butter. I know exactly what you're talking about ... and they are nasty.

 
1. Candy Corn - that stuff sucks donkey balls

2. Circus Peanuts - we had a lady in our neighborhood that would give these out in ziplock bags :X . After the first year of getting these I never visited her house ever again.

3. Jujyfruits - these weren't bad but they were so freaking chewy you could dislodge a tooth chewing a box of these.

Winner. I think they were peanut butter taffy or something.

Those peanut butter black and orange candies are awesome.
 
Nothing worse than going to Beldar's house and getting Fried Eggs. But of course he also gave out beer.....

 
mike and ikes and candy corn are great!

I cant stand ####### mallow cups or those popcorn balls.

 
Pennies and biblical tracs.  :rant:
Maybe you didn't see the thread title: Worst Halloween candy?
Which is my point. It is traditional to hand out candy- not all this crap!!!! :thumbup: Incidentally, candy corn is teh suxor. :X

Is this it? Big Chief Looks like that had been sitting around for a while before you were given it.
