And The Worst Halloween Candy Of All Time Is . . .

Let's go back in time, eldergays, babygays, straights, bis, gays-for-pay, fraus, Paltrows, and everything and anything in-between.

What is the absolute, hands-down, worst piece of rhymes-with-spit, pathetic excuse for candy you got in your bag on Halloween whilst trick-or-treating? Explain if you like.

The CORRECT answer is, of course, Mary Janes. Like eating Scrabble tiles. I was a complete goody-goody as a kid, and even I threw eggs at houses that handed out THAT crap.

Raisins. Not Raisinets, mind you. Raisins. Worse than apples IMO.

Candy Corn

by Mr. Bill reply 310/24/2015

R3 Always hated it and can't believe it still exists.

Did anyone ever like this crap?

Didn't like Mary Janes either but I can get why some people might have liked them.

But they should have stopped making candy corn in 1948.

by Mr. Bill reply 410/24/2015

The old people who would give out leftover Christmas ribbon candy from last year and other old people candy like starlight mints and sometimes butterscotch discs.

by Mr. Bill reply 510/24/2015

candy corn is ok. I can eat about 10 of them, if its a "good" brand and fresh.

by Mr. Bill reply 610/24/2015

Circus Peanuts

Another vote for candy corn and all other shapes this sugary crappy stuff takes - witches, pumpkin, etc. Mary Jane suck too and no kid wants fruit !

Those crappy miniature boxes of raisins. Always threw those in the trash.

I did not like Tootsie Rolls or circus peanuts but like candy corn.

by Mr. Bill reply 1310/24/2015

I'm weird, I always liked Mary Janes. I hated little bags of peanuts. We're trick or treating, not flying the friendly skies.

by Mr. Bill reply 1410/24/2015

Circus Peanuts are awful. When I was a kid, I liked Tootsie Rolls. Most kids liked them.

I didn't like sweet tarts, at all. I never liked acid candies.

by Mr. Bill reply 1510/24/2015

R5 is correct. Butterscotch hard candies were among the worst and I always threw them out or gave them to my folks along with black licorice. That is part of the reason I only give out candy kids actually enjoy. And circus peanuts were foul too.

by Mr. Bill reply 1610/24/2015

Caramel on a stick. I forgot what they were called, but when you sucked on them they turned sharp and would cut your tongue.

Mounds were one of the things I'd go back for more of. I didn't eat them any other time of year, but they were one of my H'ween favorites. I hated those marshmallow peanuts that tasted like banana, which I learned today are called "circus peanuts." I never heard that before, and don't get it.

by Mr. Bill reply 6010/24/2015

I hated candy corn, as well as these things called Goldberg's Peanut Chews. Didn't like Baby Ruth or Almond Joy, either. Nuts were something I did NOT want in my chocolate, other than peanut butter in peanut butter cups.

by Mr. Bill reply 6110/24/2015

R60, it means you had nothing else left from Halloween but root beer barrels, sugar straws, and Mounds. You'd dare others to eat it.

I remember at my school they gave us those little orange UNICEF boxes to collect change in while we went trick or treating. You know what candies I find gross nowadays are candies that are MADE IN CHINA. I seen them at Walmart. I won't eat food made in China ick. God knows whats in there.

by Mr. Bill reply 7710/24/2015

The taffy wrapped in orange and black (mentioned upthread) was the worst. The house that gave bars of Nestle's Crunch and the lady who gave out silver dollars to the first trick or treaters earned a special place in Heaven.

My vaginal discharge sticks to my public hair and hardens into little rice like crispy chunks. I pick out my crusty pussy crispies and melt chocolate over them and pour the mixture in little chocolate bar molds. I take old Nestle Crunch wrappers and wrap my delightful chocolatly crispy cunty treats in them and I hand them out to the kiddies trick or treating. The children just love my chocolate cunt crispies.

I call them Cheryl's Chocolate cunt crunch bars. My friend who is a shut in who weighs 600lbs has crusty cunt crispies the size of popcorn balls in her pubic hair. She dips them in chocolate and makes crispy cunt balls. That selfish bitch doesn't share her cunt crusty crispies she eats them herself.

This year I'm making my children Christina and Christopher select the worst Halloween candy that they received Trick or Treating. Then after the children select the worst candies I shall put them in a separate pile. I will then put the rest of their candy in a bag and donate it to the local food bank. That way the children will learn the gift of giving! I feel giving away the candies that they enjoy the most really teaches them what it's like to truly give.

But noo my friends ahhhhh. You see the children will not get the worst candies all at once ohhhhh no. The will have to eeearn their candy back. Piece by piece. If they are on their best behavior at the end of the day they shall receive one piece. Isn't that lovely my daaarrrrliing children.

Christina and Christopher---Yesssss Mommy Dearest!!

Now children lets get started on writing thank you letters to allll the generous people who gave you candy. Every house you received candy from will receive a hand written thank you letter.I feel children need to be taught manners. Isn't that right children?

Did anyone else have a crazy parent who had their candy x-rayed? Even though we only went to the houses of people my mother knew, she was never quite certain that they hadn't bought candy that had been tampered with at the store or that they hadn't been harboring a secret desire to kill me, so every Halloween ended at the ER. The apple cider donuts at the hospital were better than most of the candy.

by Mr. Bill reply 9810/24/2015

Do apple cider donuts actually taste like apple cider? Doesn't the cinnamon overpower the cider?

They are usually what are called Peanut Butter Kisses. They are too hard to chew. You have to suck them slowly to get the peanut butter flavor.

No, that is button candy and it can be quite good. Dots are smooth and chewy mini-gumdrops.

by Mr. Bill reply 11410/24/2015

Do any of the elder gays remember this? In our neighborhood, people would buy little white paper bags with a Halloween theme printed on them, then they would fill them with four or five different candies-snickers, etc. Everything was prepacked, and they'd hand you a little bag. A couple of houses in our neighborhood would wan to invite you in for hot cider and cookies, but we didn't want to waste time with that when there was candy to be found at other houses. We would use pillow cases for our haul, and by the end of the night, they would be half full of candy.

We do Halloween huge. We give out bags of candy and have done so for years. We always have between 400-500 trick-or-treaters. Word gets around. Of course, it also helps that we serve adult beverages to Moms and Dads too. We have a portable fire pit and set it up in the driveway. It always turns into kind of a block party.

That was the worst candy ever. You had to brush your teeth forever to get rid of all of those nasty little shreds of fake-tasting coconut.

Those horrible weird flavored Necco wafers were also bad. I'm shivering at the memory of the clove-flavored ones.

I never liked any kind of fruit-flavored jellies because they didn't taste anything like fruit and the texture was usually gummy and bad.

I actually like some of the candy mentioned earlier in the thread, like candy corn. Nougat like that has to be really fresh or it's awful. Circus peanuts seemed to be stale right out of the factory.

R129, I didn't like the wax bottles either. The unflavored wax was pretty gross and the liquid inside didn't taste good. Wax lips had such a nice flavor that we chewed them until the flavor was gone and then spit out the wax. Wax mustaches were the same kind of wax, as I recall.

[quote] Do apple cider donuts actually taste like apple cider? Doesn't the cinnamon overpower the cider?

They taste mostly like donuts made with apple sauce. I live in one of those Halloween tourist areas with tons of pumpkin picking, apple picking, hayrides, corn mazes and there is a store that makes and sells apple cider donuts and spiced apple cider to the tourists. I like the donuts, but the apple cider kind of hurts my stomach.

When I first moved here, you had to go on the back roads to find a farmer who sold pumpkins and the farmer actually grew the pumpkins there. Now, all the back road farms are gone and an industry has popped up on the main roads with pumpkins, other gourds and Indian corn trucked in from upstate NY. One guy has two of these places not only with the corn maze and hayrides but he has the big wooden slides in all different shapes (pirate ship, schoolhouse, castle, etc). Now he sells pies and roasted corn and he's a fucking zillionaire. Twenty years ago, it was empty land.

Then he told the town he needed to build huge sheds on his property to house his wooden slides, so the town ok'd it. He built gigantic sheds and rents space to landscapers to store their warm weather equipment. The guy knows how to make money..

Well, it's better than selling up and planting a couple of McMansions and phony "horse farms."

r115 I remember those bags containing lots of homemade things: popcorn balls, molasses cookies, fudge, nutbars, divinity, occasionally there'd be a real candied apple(the kind with a clear, hard red candy coating, not the ersatz caramel we have today)

r186 Can't stand the Circus Peanuts myself, but a dear friend buys bags of them every year, and allows them to go stale(like they're not already?) Only then can she enjoy them. Reminds me of that episode of "News Radio" wherein Phil Hartman's character loves those vending machine, cut-into-triangles sandwiches, but only after they've gone green, and crunchy, with mold.

Halloween peeps have been around forever. I used to make cupcakes for my son's snack sale at schoo. Made seasonal ones because I was bored. At Halloween I made purple icing, sprinkled it with black sugar, cut a ghost peep by 1/3 and had it rising out of the icing. I used the pumpkin and cat peeps, too. The cat peeps are brown now but they used to be black. When you separated them, their sides were white, so I'd brush each side with a wet paintbrush and dip it in either orange sugar or black sugar. Then I'd roll the sides of the pumpkin/cat cupcakes in orange, yellow and green sprinkles.

The ghosts were the best, though.

I also made orange and green icing and put candy pumpkins or candy corn in the middle, with sprinkles rolled onto the sides. They sold out in minutes. I was a regular Martha when it came to Snack Day (once a month). My Christmas cupcakes were wreaths, poinsiettas and "presents" with bows. It was more fun than dialing the phone with a pencil. I taught myself all the icing piping numbers and what they made. Easter was mini m&ms in the middle of green "grass" and a red licorice "handle"

Funny, cupcakes were the only thing I was ever creative with. Most parents just went to Costco and bought a big bag of popcorn and divided it into little snack bags and said, "There. Snacks." I guess they had sugar phobia. Not me. I went all out.

Candy wasn't on the menu the rest of the year. That's why it was called a "treat."

Do kids actually go trick or treating anymore? It seems like such an archaic, out of date custom now, to go people's houses and expect them to give you candy or whatever. I would think other things would be done now, like Halloween parties or events instead of trick or treating.

I watched the annual showing of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." It was edited, which sucked; they omitted Charlie Brown trying to kick the football and Snoopy being overcome with emotion when hearing Schroeder play mournful piano music. But they still had the bit where the kids are exclaiming about the treats they just got and Charlie Brown deadpans over and over "I got a rock." Did people actually do that, give some kids a rock instead of a treat? But it's one of the best bits in the special especially at the end where Charlie Brown laments "I can't understand it. I went trick or treating and all I got was a bag full of rocks." That line still makes me laugh.

There was a lady in the town I grew up in whose husband was a very prominent person (small town famous). He would give her a hundred bucks each Halloween to buy “good candy” for the neighborhood kids because he was usually out of town during Halloween. For years, it was “the” house to go to first because of the good candy they had.

Anyway, his wife became addicted to prescription meds and then harder stuff. One Halloween, she took the money he left her to buy drugs. She still wanted to give out “candy”, because of their social standing in town. So, she somehow found about five boxes of expired Atkins-Diet chocolate bars and a couple boxes of SlimFast breakfast bars and gave them out to shocked parents and kids.

When the husband found out what she did, she told him she bought the bars with his money because she wanted to promote healthy eating and such shit. She told him she didn’t know they had expired. By the next year, they had divorced and his new girlfriend gave out a couple hundred dollars worth of candy and small bags of chips to make up for the “healthy” year before.

My parents were AWOL one Halloween night, so my brother and his friends manned the door. First, they gave out dog biscuits (Liva-Snaps), then randomly switched over to squirts of shaving cream, sprayed generously into each bag. Finally, they held a large empty bowl aloft, pretending to dole out handsful of candy: they were actually reaching into bags and grabbing BACK handsful of candy. They were hilarious.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
