Is there a trick or treat goodie that makes you say “boo”? We all have our likes and dislikes when it comes to sweets — but according to data from CandyStore.com, an online wholesale and bulk candy retailer, some are more likely to get “yucks” than “yums.”
To rank its “worsts,” CandyStore surveyed over 15,000 customers and combined that with 12 other “best” and “worst” Halloween candy lists from outlets like Buzzfeed, Business Insider and Bon Appétit.
Here’s the 2022 list.
Good & Plenty
Wax cola bottles
Peanut Butter Kisses
CandyStore explains Circus Peanuts have previously been no. 1 on its “worst” list and were in second place last year.
Unfamiliar with some of these candies? Here’s a little breakdown (flavor/year introduced, if known) for ones you may not have heard of: Mary Jane (peanut butter-molasses taffy, 1914); Smarties (sweet-hard coated chocolate, 1937); wax cola bottles (gummy cylinder containing sweet syrup in various flavors); and Necco Wafers (chalky wafers in various flavors, 1847).
