Not all candy is created equal. While treats like Twix and Butterfingers are considered the gold standard of Halloween handouts, there are serious bummer candies that could get your house egged in the process.  Here's our list of candy faux-pas that could make you the scourge of the neighborhood. 

  • 1Necco Wafers

    Necco Wafers were created in 1847 and with the artificial, chalky taste of this candy, we're surprised production did not end in the 19th century.

    The candy also comes in a chocolate version and they are perhaps the only company to manage to make even chocolate taste bad.

  • 2Circus Peanuts

    These gooey, banana-flavored, peanut-shaped candy are just downright right gross! Does anyone actually like them?

  • 3Mallo Cup

    When the Boyer Brothers created this candy in the 1930s, they clearly did not have kids in mind. The marshmallow-filled chocolate cups are laced with coconut flavoring landing it on our list of the 10 worst candies to get on Halloween.

  • 4Mary Janes

    Molasses and peanut butter is not the flavor combination kids want to eat. Why not through broccoli and spinach into the mix? No more Mary Janesplease!

  • 5Peanut Chews

    Chocolate and peanuts are usually a delicious combination but not when it comes to Peanut Chews. Why not give out Peanut M&M's or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups?

  • 6Wax Lips

    We're pretty sure a candy requirement is being edible. Although these wax lips are technically safe to eat, we don't suggest trying to eat it as it's made of wax and flavoring.

  • 7Wax coke bottles

    Let's just ban all wax candy from Halloween? When you bite into this waxy candy, all you get is a small amount a overly-sweet sugar syrup.

  • 8Symphony Bar

    Hershey's makes a wide variety of delicious chocolates; Cookies 'N' Cream, Hershey's Kisses and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. So why then does anyone get stuck with their least desirable Symphony bar on Halloween?

  • 9Licorice Bites

    No one wants one bite of these Licorice Bites. Twizzlers would be an acceptable alternative.

  • 10Jaw Breakers


    On Halloween night, most kids want candy they can enjoy in the moment.  JAW BREAKERS take forever to get to the center but on the plus side, they'll last you until next Halloween.
