Dnrtfa, but candy corn better be #1. Blech.
 
2013-10-08 05:22:55 PM  
Every bag of "mixed candy" contains 80% of what's on that list.

Tootsie Rolls are disgusting.

List is an abject, utter, complete failure without these abject, utter, complete failures of confectionery:

Have never had - nor desired - a Circus Peanut. However, dumdum suckers are awesome.
 
2013-10-08 05:40:08 PM  
I don't get the hate for Candy Corn or Milk Duds. Those were both pretty desirable back in the days. Candy Corn was almost crack rock like in 4th grade.

Absolutely. Those are hands down the worst.

My pediatrician gave away Dum Dums. They were terrible. Never got the appeal - it was like mistake suckers with sickly sweet taste, the only place you could find them was free in a doctor's office.

Smarties?  Really?  That is the ultimate sugar crack.  I used to smack anyone who tried to take mine.

Smarties were OK, but Pez and Swee-tarts were so much better. My mouth's watering just thinking of biting down on a giant Swee-tart right now. Before they became chewy - when they were just a big pellet shaped like laundry detergent and tasting like dextrose and sour extract combined.

The mystery flavor is from when they are switching over the production line and the two favors blend until the pipes are cleared.

From here on out, I will never again refer to them as "peanut butter taffy" or "peanut butter kisses," but rather "confectionery dingleberries of sadness."

I think they're talking about things which are, in fact, edible.

I agree, however, those things are the absolute worst!  People giving those out should be arrested and charged with cruelty to children.
 
2013-10-08 06:44:55 PM  
I think I'm going to give out nothing but Peeps this year. Just for giggles.
 
2013-10-08 06:55:32 PM  
I like all of the list except for the tootsie rolls.

/Yeah I sound fat.
//Actually, I AM fat.
 
2013-10-08 06:58:13 PM  
Hershey Bars?  Tootsie Rolls?  Smarties/Rockets?  fark this list.

I've always called these abominations 'Necro Wafers'

because they tasted like death
 
2013-10-08 06:59:33 PM  
Wow, only 3 of those I would have a problem with but Milk Duds? Those rock.
 
2013-10-08 06:59:47 PM  
I farking love shiatty candy. Circus peanuts, candy corn, those weird chewy peanut butter taffy things...I'll eat that shiat until my teeth fall out.
 
2013-10-08 07:01:59 PM  
Never known anyone who handed out circus peanuts at Halloween.
Wish my siblings had been as picky as the author. Would have gladly scarfed up most everything on that list.
 
2013-10-08 07:03:25 PM  
Raisins were okay. They were almost a bitter palate cleanser after mainlining refined sugar.

List fails for not including those disgusting dots that come pre-stuck to paper.
 
2013-10-08 07:03:58 PM  
I like Smarties  and when I was a kid I would have peed my pants in glee if someone was handing out whole Hershey candy bars.

It is.  Deservedly so.  *cues up Lewis Black* (Although the pumpkin ones suck harder.  You can't even make fangs out of 'em, wtf?)

I'm the one person on the face of the planet who actually likes those.  Yup, it's me.  That puts me in the distinct minority, I realize.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: [img853.imageshack.us image 850x615]


F*CK YOU, THOSE ARE AWESOME.  (But I was too old for trick-or-treating by the time my tastes evolved and I could appreciate them.  The kind of trick-or-treating that we're talking about so far, anyway.)
 
2013-10-08 07:08:29 PM  
I grew up as a Jehovah's Witness and never got to go Trick-or-Treating as a kid.  Can I have some candy?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: [img853.imageshack.us image 850x615]


Oh, damn, I didn't even realize it was Hippo.  Yeah, you know what kind of trick-or-treating I'm talking about.
 
2013-10-08 07:10:11 PM  
When they mentioned "slivers of sidewalk chalk, but don't taste quite as good" I thought they were still under the impression that those candy cigarettes were still being made or something. I agree with some of the other posters that the peanut butter taffy things and rock hard honey candy thingies are the worst. Along with most varieties of hard candies. But who the hell hates Milk Duds and dum dum suckers and Tootsie Rolls? Hell I'll steal some of the large tootsie rolls out of my kids bag when he's asleep on occasion. The best though are the Special Dark mini candies, Nestle Crunch mini candies, Kit-Kats and Peanut Butter cups. Since I take my son out trick or treating every year I buy a bag each of peanut butter cups, Kit Kats, and the nestle mini candy bars under the excuse of "In case someone comes by to trick or treat before we leave or after we get back." and end up munching on them over the next few days.

/I sound fat.

1.bp.blogspot.comwhy is this missing? why is this useless, saw dust tasting, filling remover not on this list?
 
2013-10-08 07:19:14 PM  
Half of the shiat you get is stale and hard as a rock

The Stealth Hippopotamus: [img853.imageshack.us image 850x615]


I would curb-stomp a baby for one of those.

Also, regular Hershey bars (regular size) are pretty decent for Halloween loot.  I've also recently discovered that Werther's aren't bad when you're sitting in a boat in the back woods of Canada, fishing with your Dad.

SultanofSchwing: Hershey Bars?  Tootsie Rolls?  Smarties/Rockets?  fark this list.


Those were considered gold back in my day.

I remember trading hershey bar straight up for 4 bags of chips (I was a chips slut back in the day) one Halloween as I only had 2 bags of chips in my loot, but 5 bars of chocolate goodness.

Tootsie Rolls were the best, and were on the no trade list.  I had to hide them from my dad who would pick them out and steal them.  Same goes with the Rockets.  Although they had a limited no trade clause Unless I was getting a bag of chips or a chocolate bar (coffee crisp preferably), in return, they stayed put.

I went to Disney World last month, and they were having a Halloween party night. I was rather impressed with the candy they were giving away (Now & Laters, Smarties, and fun sized Hershey products.) HOWEVER, upon exiting the park, they were giving away Halloween Peeps.

PEEPS ARE F-ING NASTY. It's bad enough one has to deal with them at Easter, now, Halloween?

My dog, who will eat poop, eat his vomit, eat his vomited poop, will NOT eat Peeps. THAT is how nasty they are.

Am I the only one weird enough to enjoy NECCO Wafers, Mary Janes and Bit o Honey? I loved them all, I mean candy is candy.

Other people played Communion as a kid, right?

I ate half a Peep once, never ate the rest of it.  I agree with everything you've said regarding those vile marshmallow birds.

Because Bit-o-Honeys are awesome. So by not liking them you are by default, not.

\seriously I like pretty much all the candy on that list
\\cept Necco wafers...but my dad did so I gave them to him
 
2013-10-08 07:26:09 PM  
Necco Wafers are awesome (except for the liquorice ones)
 
2013-10-08 07:28:39 PM  
Anyone remember a Halloween candy that was a crispy peanut butter flavored rectangle about 1/2" x 3/4" x 1/8"?  It came in a cellophane wrapper that was clear with brown stripes... though I may be getting details wrong, I haven't seen one in thirty years.
 
2013-10-08 07:30:52 PM  
I think giving any type of Gum as halloween candy is kinda a douchebag move.

Never mind, should have just googled them first:

I loved those things and my brother hated them.  Luckily for me, he happened to love candy corn, which tasted like yellow dye number five and sadness to me.

Neccos are great.  I don't understand the hate.  They have a bunch of flavors, so there should be something there for everyone.

But I also like Peeps, so I may not be a good source.

No, nothing wrong with a few boxes of Raisins.

Anything black licorice based though deserved an egging.

PENCILS (Farking Pencils), or other school supplies usually was a declaration of war on the house that gave those out.
