I will even go so far as to admit I like Circus Peanuts.

Come @ me, bro.

Is this just a meme at this point? Candy corn is incredible. Especially the chocolate ones, and the pumpkins.

Just bought and finished a bag of Autumn Mix. Love the stuff.

I see you've never has necco wafers or now and laters.

I agree...Necco Wafers are the worst.  And so are Twizzlers.

Side note:

My Dad used Necco Wafers as BB gun targets when he was a kid.

I just figured it existed for people that hate children and want to make them suffer on Halloween.

You know what, go ahead and have two Necco wagers, kid.

I guess I'm weird, because I always loved CC as a kid.
It's pretty much just sugar in a snackable shape. What's not to like?

C'mon man Now and Laters are a shiatty excuse for a candy but they are leagues above Necco Cancers

I'm now only getting my vegetables through candy corn.  It's so much easier than having to go through the produce aisle.  Just pick up a few bags and you can get all the green beans, carrots, and sweet potato you want.

Candy corn is a fine palate cleanser between candy courses.

Necco wafers are like slightly sweetened chalk. I'd rather take the candy corn.

Now I wish I still had a bb gun. That is an awesome idea.

Worst trick or treat items for me as a kid, Almond Joy or Mounds. Second worst, raisins, followed by toothbrush.

Oh wait, forgot about Chick Tracts.

Best was Watchamacallits. I haven't seen them in fun size for many years. Last time I saw them, was at a Target post Halloween. I think we bought 4 bags of them at 75% off.

For me that's exactly why they're terrible.  Any decent candy needs a little something besides just sugar.

Most hated? Please. There are at least 3 or 4 more hated by far. And justifiably so.

If you haven't had a tootsie roll since you were a kid, don't.  They are much worse than you remember.  They taste like exactly what they are.  Corn syrup and oil.

You hate Almond Jot and Mounds?  They're great.

Hmmm...I guess you hate coconut, eh?

Thankfully, nobody handed out Chick Tracts in my old neighborhood.  The worst house belonged to a dentist....sugar free gum and a toothbrush.

Our neighborhood dentist gave out toothbrushes too. And those little red tablets that you chew that show you all the places you missed brushing.

Candy corn is wonderful mixed with peanuts. The ratio of sweet to salty is perfect. These things that Vlad posted are nasty af.

This never made sense to me. If I were a dentist, I would be giving out as much nougat and carmel filled candy as possible.

Ditto. So maybe it's a good thing I am not a dentist.

And IIRC, granola bars are a worse for your teeth than Milk Duds.

/Mmmmmm....Milk Duds.

I like candy corn. When I was a little kid, I ate so much of it that I threw up, but I still like it as an adult.

Each year about this time, I get a craving for candy corn and buy a bag (actually usually the bag with the pumpkins and other shapes).  By the time I finish the bag (over several days), i come to loathe the stuff and am good until the next fall, when I crave it again.

/I also like Necco wafers - or used to, haven't had any in years.

Yeah, "most loathed" is an idiotic thing to say. Some people might not like it as much as others, but I've never met someone who "loathed" candy corn, let alone enough people to make it the "most" hated...

Ditto.  They're just pucks of Pixie Stick or Fun Dip powder, albeit less flavorful.
