One thing you should know about me, I’m kind of a foodie. My unofficial motto? Life is too short to eat crap. Well, let’s not forget that candy is a food group. Also, it’s 2012. You’re still eating stuff from the forties? NO!!!! With that in mind, here are ten candies that you should be ASHAMED to eat.
10.) Black Licorice
A TON of listeners hit me up to say that they hate licorice. I’m not a fan, but it could be worse….
9.) Plain Jellybeans
Surprisingly, the licorice flavored ones are the least crappy to me. Boring flavors with a chalky outside, If this is the best the Easter bunny can do…
8.) Candy Corn
every Halloween there’s that old lady who insists on sending out candy corn. It might be the same candy corn from last year, which is the same candy corn from the year before that… you get the picture. What flavor is that supposed to be anyways?
7.) Butterscotch Discs/Werthers Originals
Another one of grandma’s favorites! This one is more boring than bad, either you love it or you hate it.
6.) Circus Peanuts
If you’re lucky, you don’t know what these are. These things look like orange flavored styrofoam peanuts, feel like orange flavored styrofoam peanuts, and smell like orange flavored stryofoam peanuts. Guess what they taste like?
Not the chewy ones, but the little hard ones. mmm, chalky dots of some sugar encrusted substance on waxed paper. They probably taste better if you don’t take them off the paper.
4.) Turkish Delights
I wouldn’t try one of these until they assured me it wasn’t some kinky bedroom thing. Ground nuts in some type of sticky gel. I was not delighted.
3.) Necco Wafers
After chalk and sugar, I really don’t know what else is in these.
2.) Mary Jane
These were the ones you couldn’t trade ANYONE on Halloween. Not even a stack of em to that fat kid who likes quantity over quality. Worse than most of these other candies cuz it’s so sticky, you’ll be tasting it for another half hour after you spit it out.
1.) Good & Plenties
That name should be false advertising, they are NOT good! At all! There WILL be plenty to go around though, these get passed like a fruitcake. One of that few candies that actually triggered my gag reflex. Once again, what flavor is it supposed to be?
