That was essentially putting 50 different candies in a Halloween basket and pulling them out at random, writing them down, and then adding some justification or commentary about each one.

Of course Reese's cups are at the top.  The interesting thing is that they fixed whatever was farking them up years ago.  I don't know if it was my area or what but over half the Reese's cups would have this chalky chocolate as if it were expired or something and most of the moisture was gone from the peanut butter.  I used to think they were either using cheaper than normal ingredients for the bagged Halloween candy or stores/distributors/whatever were storing really old crap and then stocking it on Halloween to get rid of it.

No candy corn?  No Good and Plenty?  No Necco Wafers?  What is this list?

Candy corn is #8, which proves they have zero taste.  Also, Twizzlers aren't far behind, which shows they have a further affinity for terrible tasting crap.

No reading comprehension? Numbers 34 and 8 cover two of your "missing" items.

Is that list from a Russian bot?

Well, my tastes differ quite a bit from those of the author... although #1-4 are solid.

I don't hate candy corn the way a lot of people seem to, but I would never rank it that high.
 
2020-10-28 10:28:43 AM  
Someone very young wrote this list....it's doesn't have those damn peanut butter chews that came in the orange and black paper wrappers.....I looked this year just to make the kiddos try them and didn't find any at the local stores.

Gawd they were awful but I always had handfuls of them given to me.

This is all you need to know about how horrible Candy corn is.

Nobody's ever made a list like this. I bet this goes viral.

If your top 5 doesn't include bit o honey you can't be my friend.

Twizzlers at 10?  Candy corn at 8?  Tootsie Rolls at 7?  Freaking Kit-Kats, the single lamest candy bar, at 3?  And Snickers don't even make the top 20?  Did they write this to deliberately troll people for attention?

What about those peanut butter stone rolled in black and orange wax paper.

Better as sling shot ammo

Many odd choices so I'll just comment on one.  Butterfinger is way too high up that list.

I always wondered where the hell my neighbors were getting candy that neither Kmart nor the Dollar Store sold, like it would take more effort to get that awful shiat than to just get normal treats

This is the kind of idiot I'd have liked to have traded candy with at the end of the night.

There is no use or purpose to tootsie rolls. They're not edible.

Candy corn, necco wafers and circus peanuts are proof that God is malevolent and hates his children. Anyone who gives those out on Halloween should be charged with crimes against humanity.

Why are you so wrong? Butterfingers are great.

Heath bars in the bottom ten?  Tootsie rolls in the top?  List can be safely ignored- this article was clearly written by a malfunctioning AI who has never actually eaten candy.

I love circus peanuts. Have two bags of them at home right now.

My family's littles seem to all go for the Wonka Nerds first. Reese's are a US favorite. I've got several girlfriends that are Swedish Fish fanatics.

I prefer dark chocolates and European chocolates which really are superior. More actual chocolate and rarely use corn syrup. Eastern European and even Russian brands are delicious and extremely affordable if you are lucky enough to be near a big city or have a large import grocery store nearby.

Whoppers have always been a guilty pleasure for those times when I forget how fat I sound.

Its taffy, almond and honey you cretin. Its a glorious tasty snack. Its miles better than that dry peanut dust filled chocolate covered nightmare.

Was this your original picture? I am curious where I can buy one of those in person (instead of having to go to their website, only 3 days before Halloween).

Yes but you snort them. Most people don't.

Did a pretty robust business handing out candy and cups of scotch (was an Islay, not too expensive but drinkable,) and I have to say I'm a little bummed this year won't be the same.

Terrible ranking. It was all over the place, but anybody who puts Starburst and Candy corn above any chocolates is just evil.


Also, just because it's relevant and funny:

Wildly popular, and I'm really not sure why. It has so much going on, and it's incredibly hard to chew. After like three bites, you're good.

The hell?

It's nice living across from a grocery store.  I can't wait to go there the day after Halloween and scoop up all those half off Reese's Pumpkins.
