    What is the worst Halloween candy?

    I have to vote for those sticky things in the orange and black wrappers. I think they're maybe peanut butter toffee? I don't know, but they're terrible.

    Mounds. I don't know a single person who enjoys them.

    Vote goes to any off brand candy trying to replicate the awesomeness of established companies. That and blue Frooties

    Sort of a sub-topic: What candy are you surprised so many people like? One of the bags I bought this year was a mix that had York's Peppermint Patty in it and I was shocked how many kids were excited about it.

    Candy Corn should burn in the darkest pits of hell.

    Those little Brach's Pumpkins are close behind.

    York Peppermint Patties are really good. I had one yesterday for the first time in a long time and it did not disappoint.

    Disagree. Candy corn is a fine filler candy, especially if paired with something salty.

    I just didn't expect it to go over big with the kids.

    You now know one person who does. And I have a feeling candy corn will run away with this, it's awful.

    This is the correct answer. I think they are called Mary Janes.

    Both regular nickels AND the chocolate coin things.

    That's it!! Yeah, those things suck. I would have been super-pumped about Peppermint Patties, though! Nice call!

    You are not human!!

    I agree with Angie. I know two people on the face of the earth that like those black and orange pieces of crap. My dad and my father in law. But then again, they both are like goats and can eat just about anything.

    I once chose not to go home with a girl from a bar in college because she told me Candy Corn was her favorite food.

    I honestly don't know where you can even buy them. Maybe my brain just censors them out if I see them in the store? Or is everyone who gives them out hoarding them from, like, 1986?
