10 Halloween Candy Fails

Not all candy is created equal. Here are 10 candies NO ONE wants to eat on Halloween*. *or ever, really.

Posted on

1. These things

If my grandmother didn't have orange tic tacs, she'd have these in her purse.

These strawberry candies seemed to survive a couple of Christmases and Halloweens before they'd be consumed in the present day. THEY'RE BIONIC!

3. Mysterious Orange and Black Candy

...And what are these again? Do we even know? Do YOU even know?

I never had one, nor have I ever wanted to find out just what it is behind the mysterious orange and black wrappers.

4. Child's Play Mix


The makers of tootsie roll and dots thought they had a winner when they named their mix "Child's Play." Unfortunately, the horror movie franchise that introduced us to the Chucky dolls is also named "Child's Play." SUPER FAIL.

5. Tootsie Roll Pops


Speaking of tootsie rolls, just how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie roll pop?

It takes ONE LICK, because who has time to wait for that? Just bite into it and move on to other candies in your stash.

6. Werther's Original


The grandfather of all candies. No... seriously... because your grandfather ate them!

While all the colorful candies like Nerds or Starbursts go clubbing on a Friday night, Werther's Original would retire in its favorite chair, all bundled up in a homemade sweater, ready to read a long book. Where's the fun in that? Yawn...

7. Anything with the word "skinny" in the title

There's nothing wrong with being health conscious, and there's nothing wrong with wanting to watch your weight...

But Halloween is ALL ABOUT THE CANDY! Eating only skinny cow candy takes the fun out of it.

8. Whoppers

Just what, exactly, are whoppers? Are they burgers? Lies?

Well, no... they're actually semisweet chocolate balls in a box shaped like a milk carton. Of course, there is no milk to be seen inside this carton.

They are too misleading! Why can't they just be called chocolate candy and be placed in a normal box? Quit playing games with us!

9. Yellow Starbursts

Ah, yes. The yellow starburst. It's like being Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC, except it's a candy. Everyone wants the pink or the red, but never the yellow. Being the least popular of all starburst flavors, it's a FAIL.

10. Circus Peanuts


If you like these... I mean... REALLLY like these, you must be an elephant. Or a clown. Or both.

Are they a marshmallow? Are they a taffy? And why are they sold in places other than the circus?
