Today Jay, Doni and Chelsea talked about candy kids would rather not get. Click on the arrow to hear our conversation: Candy Kids hate
The website Complex.com came up with a list of the worst candies you can give out on Halloween. But they're not the worst candies FOR you. They're the worst TASTING . . . according to them. Here are the top nine.
#9.) Candy Corn. They're a Halloween staple, but they're also always the last thing kids eat.
#8.) Jawbreakers. Halloween is about tearing through as much candy as you can. But with a jawbreaker, you end up sucking on a hard, sticky ball of sugar for five minutes. Then you throw it away.
#7.) Wax Coke Bottles. They're just too old school. The syrup inside is okay, but they're definitely no one's FAVORITE Halloween candy. And little kids who don't know better end up popping the whole thing in their mouth.
#6.) Black Licorice. It's an acquired taste, and most kids hate it.
#5.) Wax Lips. Personally, I think these should be higher on the list, since they're not even candy. If you've ever bitten into one, it's like eating chap stick.
#4.) Mallo Cups. They look just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but they're filled with whipped cream. So you're always disappointed when you bite into one.
#3.) Raisins. Obviously, they're healthier. But that's not really the point of Halloween. So if you hand out boxes of raisins, expect some disappointed kids.
#2.) Circus Peanuts. They're the big peanut-shaped marshmallow things nobody eats. And for some reason, they're still being made, even though most people agree they're disgusting.
--But ironically, in the '60s they inspired one of the most-popular kids cereals of all time: Lucky Charms. It happened after the vice-president of General Mills grated up Circus Peanuts and put them in his Cheerios.
#1.) Necco Wafers. This one's flawed though, because their biggest gripe is that the company started making them all-natural a few years back . . . using things like red beet juice and purple cabbage instead of artificial flavors.
