Every year it's the age old dilemma. Do I buy Halloween candy that is cheap and plentiful, or do I spend a little more and get what I like? Getting what I like means I anticipate some leftovers, and that is not always the case. But I DO know which candies I loathed getting for trick or treat as a kid, and they are listed below. (Side note - I am a candy corn lover!) Agree or disagree, but I hate all of these.

  • Smarties / Sweet Tarts
  • Wax lips, teeth, or bottles
  • Peppermints
  • Peanut butter Kisses - the kind in the black and orange wrappers - ugh!
  • Boxes of raisins
  • Fruit - sorry, Mom!
  • Homemade popcorn balls - these would never fly in today's society. Don't trust anyone with homemade goods that you don't actually know
  • Necco Wafers
  • Good & Plenty licorice
  • Mary Jane's
  • Dum Dum suckers
  • Flavored Tootsie Rolls - especially the banana
  • Jelly Beans - I like Jelly Bellys, just not the generic beans
