Circus Peanuts and those weird jelly(?) candies that are shaped like hamburgers and hot dogs.

Also homemade things since we always had to throw them away for safety.

Mounds and Almond Joy – anything with cocunut in it.  I.hate.cocunut.

And I’m going to sounds like a candy snob here, but I hate “generic” candy.  For example, I *love* Reese’s peanut butter cups, but I *hate* Kirkland’s (Costco’s brand) of generic peanut butter cups.  My mom bought a giant bag of the Kirkland kind and I said she’s going to be *that* house that gives out the crappy candy.

daisybabybee:  Tootsie rolls and rockets! So gross. Those candies belong in the garbage.

Edit: Mini boxes of raisins – YUCK! Anything with raisins in it is disgusting,

The worst candy is the stuff that is left behind come Nov. 1st. We eat all that candy and we do not need the calories. Granted, that’s not the trick-or-treaters’ fault.

FutureMrsW2015:  had to google rockets.  Aparently that’s smarties in the US.  Somehow I like them more than most candy, but wouldn’t go out of my way to have them.

Raisins, chocolate covered raisins, black licorice, cola balls and jaw breakers that are so big you can break a tooth or can’t eat them in one sitting. Dollar store chocolate that is very, very waxy. Those twisty colored marshmallows that taste like talcum powder. Rockets (or the pastel ‘Smarties’ — you know, the fruity powdery tabs).

My favorites include chocolate covered marshmallows and potato chips, however. Actually my favorite candy EVER was when a neighbour used to make homemade popcorn balls. Mmmm.

I can’t believe so many people hate Tootsie Rolls! Those are my favorite!! I also love candy corn 🙂

My least favorite would be those orange and black wrapped things people have already posted. What even ARE they?!?!

I also hate smarties and smartie type candies. When I was a kid, everyone loved those but me.

These pervasive agents of Beezlebub:

Also Mounds/Almond Joys, tootsie rolls (especially the heinous “fruit” flavored kinds) and those little wrapped logs of bubblegum that are about 60% concrete powder. My teeth hurt just thinking about this stuff…

Wax fangs or wax lips.  Might as well be eating chapstick.
