I haven't been trick or treating in 32 years, but that doesn't mean I don't like good Halloween candy.

We all know the best candy to get while out on beggar's night...Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, M&M's....and so on.

What about the worst candy to get?

According to CandyStore.com, the most hated candy by trick or treaters.... Circus Peanuts.

I don't see how this is true, when you go to the website to buy Circus Peanuts, they're sold out.

I'm a huge fan of these airy, tasty, nuggets of goodness. I can see why today's trick or treaters wouldn't enjoy them...but I'm pretty certain, 10 year old's didn't take the surveys the data was collected from.

I also can't believe people hate tootsie rolls. I remember as a kid, you could buy them for a penny a piece at the corner store. That chocolaty goodness should be high on the list of great Halloween candies. After chatting with some folks in the office, they mentioned tootsie rolls were nasty. One participant in the conversation said they reminded her of dog droppings...???...What?

I'm pretty sure Candy Corn is just a bandwagon hatred from people. Some celebrity or social media person decided they hated it and made a big deal out of it. You know people buy bags and bags of candy corn and eat them when they're alone. About 35 million pounds of CC is sold each year... you know people love it.

Now that my confused rant is over, lets move on.

Here's what the rest of the Top 10 looks like.

Halloween candy is a serious business. If you're the elder sibling, you probably had a pretty good system to trade off the bad candy to your younger siblings. That's certainly one of the advantages of being the older one.
