Candy Corn Voted The Worst Halloween Candy In New Survey

Who here is excited about getting some Halloween candy? Halloween is that time of the year when I don't beat myself up for eating too many treats. After all, it only comes once a year. Am I right?

But there are great Halloween candies and then there are those not so great. I'm here to tell you which ones you should stay away from, at least, according to a new survey that was conducted by Let's count down the worst Halloween candies, shall we?

10. Licorice

Giphy | RETRO-FIEND did a survey of over 20,000 of its own customers to find out the best and worst Halloween candies. Lo and behold licorice came out as one of the losers. I gotta say I'm not surprised because I actually hate it, lol.

9. Good & Plenty

I have to admit I've never had this candy before. Judging from this list, that's actually a good thing. And, now that I know its standing here, I'm definitely not trying it, ha, ha!

8. Mary Janes

Apparently, after a brief hiatus, Mary Janes are back on store's shelves. You be the judge of whether that's a good thing or not. Some people seem to love them but not when it comes to Halloween candies.

7. Tootsie Rolls

Unfortunately, this is a popular one during Halloween, so don't be surprised if you see a lot of these in your kid's Halloween bag. They're cheap and they usually come in every mixed package of Halloween candies.

6. Necco Wafers

The complaints about this Halloween candy are endless. People say they're dry and chalky. That's enough of a reason for me to stay away from them. But if you want to chance it just try them yourself.

5. Smarties

Candy Store

Smarties (also known as Rockets in Canada) are similar to Necco Wafers. They are chalky, hard, and basically just pure sugar. I typically throw these straight into the trash when I get them.

4. Wax Coke Bottles

These were definitely fun when you were about five-years-old. Are you feeling me? Once you were old enough you realized that there isn't much to them than a layer of wax and some sugar water. Yuck!

3. Circus Peanuts

Honestly, I had to look this one up. I had no idea what it was, lol. The description of these reads that they are '"American peanut-shaped marshmallow candy." Come again? What in the heck is that supposed to be? Next!

2. Peanut Butter Kisses

Don't get these confused with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Hershey’s Kisses — they are neither. And, to be frank, you'll be horrified once you try them, especially if you expect them to actually taste as good as the abovementioned and beloved goodies.

1. Candy Corn

Giphy | megan motown

Drumroll please, let me introduce you to the worst Halloween candy ever. This vile candy is a mixture of several ingredients, including sugar, corn syrup, confectioner's glaze, salt, dextrose, artificial flavor, a bunch of colors, and gelatin. Enough said!

What do you think of these rankings? Do you agree that these are the worst Halloween candies?
