Worst candy
« on: October 12, 2021, 10:28:16 AM »
Inspired by another thread, and Halloween.

Peeps are awful! In fact, they are only rivaled in awfulness by the fake peanuts of the same consistency!

I loathe Swedish fish. I loathe sour patch version swedish fish even more. Anything in the sour patch family really.
Airheads are an abomination.

Baby Ruth - mostly for that weird wax that they coat it with in place of actual chocolate. Ugh.

Ferrero Rocher--ever since I saw little weevils in a sealed package. (That's the danger of clear packaging)

Peeps are horrendous. But I hate rockets even more.

You Americans call them 'smarties', but we have a good candy called 'Smarties', so. (Basically, better chocolate M&Ms.)

Also, American Oreos are weird, and American KitKats are inedible.
I know it's a genus.

I've never personally been fond of candy corns. 
Don't lay up treasures for yourselves on Earth, where they can decay or be stolen.  Lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where there is no decay or theft.  Where your treasure is, you heart will be also.


You can't take it with you.  You can only send it on ahead.

Ugh, yeah. I forgot about those.

Butterfinger candy bars.  Blech.

But I love, love, love, Circus Peanuts.  Those pinky-orangey shaped unshelled peanut shaped marshmallowy things that taste like bananas gone wild.  Mrs Artem believes I have never met an artificial flavor I did not like.

Butterscotch discs make me gag. I've also never really liked those strawberry filled hard candies that come in the strawberry plastic wrapping. They always seem to put them in gift baskets around Christmastime.

Sugar free candy.

It's just mean.

Baby Ruths are only good for tossing into a swimming pool.

That's funny, because my tastes are exactly opposite.  I don't care for circus peanuts, but love Butterfingers.  Weird how tastes are like that.

That Caddy Shack reference was so subtle that I nearly missed it. Good one.

Not real fond of black licorice.  Red licorice ok.
