You’ve heard the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Well, the same holds true when it comes to candy. Your extreme dislike for candy corn is balanced by my love for it!

Candy corn is always so controversial, isn’t it?

With Halloween approaching, let’s take a look at a list of some of the perceived worst candy out there, according to Thrillist

  • Wax Lips – is this even a candy? It’s wax. But they sure are fun to put on and goof around.
  •  SweeTarts- Isn’t it a little disturbing when your candy looks like medicine? Plus, well… they are tart. 
  • Bit-O-Honey- Yup, just a bit of honey, some crushed almonds, hardened into a taffy that will have you in the dentist chair in no time.
  • Candy Corn- I love these delightful little orange and white treats, but so many are completely put off by the waxy texture and over the top sweetness. Go ahead and hate, but please pass the bag this way. Oh, and by the way, the harvest blend variety is my everything. 
  • Fireballs– a rock hard ball of sugar fire… hmmm. I’ll take my sugar fire in liquid form, in a shot glass. Thanks
  • 3 Muskateers- It’s not that they are awful, they are just disappointing. Remember how you felt, as a kid and somebody handed you this chocolate covered airy nougat. It just feels like it’s missing something. 
  • Pixy Sticks- Nothing to sink your teeth into here. It’s basically the powder form of Jello in a straw. 
  • Fun Dip- The fun is in taking the “SweeTART” like stick and dipping it in the “Pixy Stick” powder. It stains your fingers and you have to work for your treat. I’m out. 

So there you go. What would you like to add to this list?
