What is The Worst Halloween Candy?

The San Antonio Express-News did a survey on the best and worst Halloween candy according to their readers and since it is just one set of readers from one paper in one town, national conclusions can be drawn.

The list of the “worst” candy caught my eye; Pixie Stix, Smarties, and Peanut Butter Kisses (the ones in the orange and black wrapper) were all on the list, as well as licorice, which I happen to believe is totally awesome. Pixie Stix are like taking a scoop of sugar and pouring it down your throat, Smarties are about as tasty as eating an Alka-Seltzer tablet dry, and those Peanut Butter Kisses never tasted anything like peanut butter to me.

It has been many many years since I went trick or treating, so maybe people have stopped handing out non-candy items for Halloween, but the ones we used to get were: pennies, popcorn balls, and apples. Now, I’m a big apple fan, but those are for the other 364 days of the year, not for Halloween; that’s a candy day. As for popcorn balls, well, I’m not sure how making popcorn into balls ever became a thing, and I’m not surprised they have fallen from favor. If people would just stick to giving out something chocolate, just about everybody will be happy.
