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!

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
