The dreaded candy corn is one of the most commonly disliked candies in a Halloween sack. Sticky sweet, but not in a good way, this "treat" tends to get tossed out in favor of something with chocolate in it.
Classic bubblegum seems like a safe bet, but there's a reason that kids always wanted to spit seemingly delicious gum out almost before they finished reading the comic that came with it. Not known for its long-lasting flavor, cheap gum is quick turn into half-solid airplane glue with just about as much taste and flavor.
Though they look and feel like marshmallows, this candy also looks like it went stale the last time the circus came to town. A disappointment to most people brave enough to try them, this candy is one of the only ones that might get thrown out.
Good & Plenty
Billed as the oldest candy brand in the United States, Good & Plenty is only a hit with those who already love licorice (which is a pretty specific slice of the trick or treater population). Significantly less popular than Mike & Ike, Good & Plenty even looks like medicine. It will still get eaten, but probably closer to the bottom of the candy bag.
Commonly seen as old-people candy, butterscotch hard candies are seen as some of the most disappointing finds in your bag. Liked by a slim number of kids, this might call for eggs and toilet paper, unless it's a grandparent handing them out.
The same company that makes Valentine's hearts, these wafers are six shades of weird when it comes to candy. While the lemon and lime flavors aren't too bad, the clove, cinnamon and chocolate wafers really don't mesh with the chalky texture of the wafers. They still get given out though, which means someone out there likes them. Somewhere.
There's always one older person or health nut who decides to give away raisins. Not chocolate or yogurt covered raisins either, just plain old dried fruit. It isn't candy, and may result in a riot.
Black Jelly Beans
Forget razor blades in your caramel apples, black jelly beans in a bag of perfectly normal mixed jelly beans is going to be enough to ruin many people's days. Like a hand grenade made of black licorice, these candy terrorists can leave unexpected eaters coughing and reaching for a palette cleanser.
Less tasty than Juju Fruits, this candy is like gum drops crossed with a needy ex. There's barely any flavor in them to begin with, and to make matters worse they'll pull your fillings out while you try to chew them. The texture is much loved by some people, but overall Dots still belong on the public enemy list when it comes to Halloween candy.
Mary Janes are shoes, and if you try to eat these candies the consistency is about the same. Definitely one that gets passed on.
The angry big brother of candy corn, these too-sweet pumpkins are favorites only of those with undeveloped taste buds and a massive craving for sugar. Often left till they go stale, these candies are a trick more than a treat.
Like knock off M&Ms, these not-chocolates are always a little dry and more than a little disappointing. Even if you close your eyes and try to pretend the candy coating is tasty the inner candy is always going to be less than you expect it to be.
Halloween is a time for sweet treats, so getting this sour hard candy is a definite downer. Maybe if you absolutely love all things sour you'd enjoy this candy, but the intense taste and hardness make it a candy sack obstacle.
Ugh. These things are super chewy. They fool you by tasting like chocolate at first, but then 20 minutes later you're still eating...
There's a very small crowd that actually likes Almond Joys. Most people just want a fill of chocolate on Halloween, but these throw in a huge chunk of gross textured coconut in there. Kids especially don't like these.
These aren't even candy! Why do people give these out? At first you think it will be fun to maybe at least look silly with giant red lips, but then you realize that not only are they just wax, but they also keep you from being able to talk. So now you're just looking silly and kept out of the conversation. This girl's expression: "I've mad a huge mistake."
It's like crack for kids. Straight up sugar. Parents hate these, and they aren't even that good to begin with.
These are so prevalent that we're just tired of them. They tend to get old and hard anyways, its like slightly chocolate flavored taffy.
Really? They even make zombie themed tooth brushes? Who wants to get that when they're out trying to find candy? You have to literally be a dentist to give these out.
These suckers have too much hype around them. By the time you get to the bowl, ou're always stuck with the bad flavors. Or 'mystery', which by your luck is just going to be the bad flavors.
Anonymous Taffy Things
These things are so gross that they don't even have a brand name associated with them. They're just wrapped in Halloween colors so that unwitting children will take them. They'll learn their lesson later when they try them for the first (and last) time.
Who actually wants to get candy buttons for candy? These take way too much work just to receive a little drop of candy, which you can't even tell what flavor they are anyways. Barely even have any sugar in them.
