I love Peeps.

I hate licorice. I hate candy corn.

SO dislikes wax lips/bottles, those peanut butter orange and black Halloween candies (I don't mind them), Tootsie rolls (I think they're ok), Dots, black licorice and anything with coconut or marshmallow fluff in it.

I dislike root beer, black licorice, Circus peanuts and I'm not a fan of red hots or fireballs.

Circus Peanuts are like Vienna Sausages.... you eat one and think, "These are Great!  Why dont I eat more of these?"  then you eat a second and think, "hmmm...."  After the third, you think, "OMG, there are still 6 more in them!!"

Yeah, my brother loves circus peanuts, I can't say the same. They were a desperate "I have no other candy left from halloween" thing when I was a kid.
I like peanut butter but the orange and black peanut butter taffy that shows up around halloween is pretty terrible.
The candy corn pumpkins are even worse for me, it's like three or four candy corns mashed together, ick.
I can't abide black licorice, especially the really strong stuff. If death had a flavor I imagine that would be it.
I don't think those wax lips should be allowed to be considered candy.

I imagine you don't care for salty licorice either, then?
I know it's a genus.

My department sets out a large bowl of assorted candies for majors: M and Ms, Twix, Almond Joys, etc.

After students ravage the bowl, Snickers remain, for weeks. We literally can't give them away.

Snickers are the abject of the candy world.

Here's a retro one for Canadians--Thrills gum (it was purple and tasted like soap)
Actually, I also remember gummy candies that tasted like soap.

I never encountered it, but it looks like you can buy it on Well.ca ...

Not real fond of black licorice.  Red licorice ok.

The blennius household is sharply divided on licorice terms. Three of us love black licorice and one doesn't.

We're evenly split on twizzlers vs. red vines. I believe it comes down to whether one prefers the texture of plastic (twizzlers) or wax (red vines).

I have seen salt licorice but never eaten any. I can't imagine I would enjoy it but if someone else bought it I would at least try it.

Wow, I consider Snickers definitely a Tier 1 candy.

Dark chocolate Mallo Cups. I love dark chocolate. I love Mallo Cups. But the combination of dark chocolate and sweet marshmallow ruins both for me.

Peanut M&Ms aren’t the worst, but they’re bad. M&Ms should melt in my mouth, but those peanuts don’t.

My favorite snack for years was microwaving a bag of popcorn then adding 2 bags of Peanut M&Ms.
