Worst Halloween Candy Ranked – Screamin’ Scott
Memories of Halloween trick or treating are running through my head, and the fun part was the after hours of walking and running. And cutting across Mr. Johnson’s lawn to save time. Finally dumping a pillowcase full of candy that would make your dentist scream.
There were always pieces of disappointment in your stash. For me, it was what they called “Circus Peanuts.” It was like eating orange styrofoam. The second was Good & Plenty licorice candy. You didn’t throw it away but you made sure it was the last candy you would eat months later when you depleted your sugar intake.
I loved Butterfingers but hate what they did to my teeth. One of my favorites was the “Marathon” candy bar. It had the slogan they last a good long time. The only problem was nobody passed that premium candy out on Halloween.
Then, some marketing guy thought it would be funny to make bite-size versions of the big candy bars. What a rip-off. Who came out with Trunk of Treats? How un-fun is that? Thinking back we had it pretty good back in the day. Yes, I did dress up as KISS one time. I got stuck being Peter Criss, but I thought it was cool. Check out the folks from Candystore.com and their list of the “Worst Halloween Candy” for 2022. The funny thing is the candy I hated as a kid I like now. Like peanut butter taffy, Sour Balls, and Twizzlers have all found their way into my heart again.
