Let's be real, jelly beans are great for decoration, but no one actually likes them. They have an odd texture, and you never really know what bizarre flavor you're going to get.

Eating licorice is pretty comparable to eating rubber! No one wants this candy in their halloween basket.

No one knows exactly what these things are supposed to be. They taste like a chocolate rip-off but feel like you're chewing wax!

Candy corn is cute and festive, but it definitely doesn't taste too great. All they're really good for is Halloween decorations anyway.

It's really hard to get excited about an Almond Joy-- especially if you're a kid. Who doesn't feel slightly disappointed pulling an Almond Joy out of a basket of candy?

Talk about a sugar rush! Pixy Stix are nothing more than a tube of sugar that goes straight to your head.

So, is it a candy or a chewing gum? Quite frankly, it shouldn't be either. It looks like it won't be that bad, but once you bite into it you realize it is in fact, that bad.

What exactly are these things anyway? Candy is supposed to be sweet or sour, definitely not hot or spicy!

Wax Bottles (Nik-L-Nips)

Whose idea was it to make a candy out of wax? For some reason, these were sort of amusing as kids. Now they're very hard to understand a purpose for.
