8 Kinds of Halloween Candy Everybody Hates


I love any holiday that gives me an opportunity to eat a diet comprised of the five food groups: candy, candy, candy, candy, and also candy. So it's no wonder Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. (I'm also fond of Thanksgiving for pie-related reasons.) Still, there are some candies so gross that even I, their most diligent consumer, won't feast upon them. That's right, there is candy out there that is too gross for ME.

Whether it's for a trick-or-treater or an adult, make no mistake -- these are the Halloween candies that are bound to sit at the bottom of the bowl until Easter.
