Worst Halloween Candy Ever

Sure, sure... there's the costumes, the fun of dressing up, the spooky ghost stories and the pranks - but deep down inside we all know what the best thing about Halloween really is: THE CANDY! That's why we're listing the WORST Halloween treats of all time – make sure you don’t collect any of these in your bag!


No. 10: Apples

Candy

Apples are usually given out by some well-meaning neighbor who doesn’t want to contribute to tooth decay and thinks kids should be eating healthier. Unfortunately, apples can really weigh down a Halloween bag – especially if it’s paper. Plus, if you’re like most people you’ve already got plenty of your own apples at home.

No. 9: Raisins

Candy

Little boxes of stuck-together dried grapes are not what kids want to drag around the neighborhood all night. When we say trick-or-treat, we want candy – not wrinkled grapes! On the plus side, using the empty raisin box as a kazoo can be kinda fun.

No. 8: Candy Corn

Candy

This is like the fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away. If you love candy corn, that’s cool. Some people do. But others find them sickeningly sweet – and confusing. They taste nothing like corn!

No. 7: Baked Goods

Candy

While home-baked cookies are usually a yummy treat, we all know our parents aren’t going to let us eat anything unwrapped or homemade once we get home to check out our Halloween stash. It’s best to leave the fresh cookies for the next bake sale.

No. 6: Dum Dum Suckers

Candy

This is a completely overdone candy treat. You can find them in doctor’s offices, restaurants and stores where they’re given away as something sweet for kids and adults. The only advantage to these candies is occasionally you’ll get the creme soda flavor, which happens to be the best of the bunch.

No. 5: Toothbrushes

Candy

Dentists and orthodontists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they're going to get all tooth-doctory on us! We all have a personal responsibility to brush, and maybe some of us will forget, a toothbrush instead of a Snickers will not help us remember!

No. 4: Tootsie Rolls

Candy

It looks like chocolate and sort of smells like chocolate, but these brown tubes are not real chocolate. Instead, their chewy texture could, quite possibly, loosen the fillings right off your molars!

No. 3: Misc. Hard Candy

Candy

Kids just don’t suck on hard candies all day. Those should be left for the candy bowls in waiting rooms where they belong – they just don’t work for Halloween!

No. 2: Dusty Jelly Beans

Candy

Jelly beans aren’t THAT bad – as long as they come in a nice little plastic package that protects them from the elements, and from being crushed under the weight of all the other candy in your Halloween bag. Loose jelly beans just don’t cut it at this time of year – they’re bound to get lots at the bottom of the pile or fall out of some tiny random hole.

No. 1: Fun-Sized Chocolate

Candy

Since when is one bite fun?! We’d rather trick-or-treat in the rich neighborhood where they hand out full-sized candy bars at every door!

I have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
