Let's face it, getting candy on Halloween is FUN! However, every kid knows, and most adults should too that some candy is just down right NASTY!  Here's our list of the top 10 worst Halloween candies.  No, not the worst FOR you, just worst-tasting!

    Candy Corn

    They're a Halloween staple, but they're also always the last thing kids eat.

    Jawbreakers

    Halloween is about tearing through as much candy as you can. But with a jawbreaker, you end up sucking on a hard, sticky ball of sugar for five minutes. Then you throw it away.

    Wax Bottle Candy

    They're just too old school. The syrup inside is okay, but they're definitely no one's FAVORITE Halloween candy. And little kids who don't know better end up popping the whole thing in their mouth.

    Black Licorice

    It's an acquired taste. (yeah, right) Most kids hate it.

    Wax Lips

    Personally, I think these should be higher on the list, since they're not even candy. If you've ever bitten into one, it's like eating chap stick. Totally disgusting and once everyone has seen you in the lips, well, the fun's over.

    Mallo Cups

    They look just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but they're filled with whipped cream. So you're always disappointed when you bite into one. It's Reese's or NOTHING for us!!!

    Raisins

    C'MON! Raisins? Not knocking them, obviously, they're healthier. But that's not really the point of Halloween. So if you hand out boxes of raisins, expect some disappointed kids.

    Circus Peanuts

    They're the big peanut-shaped marshmallow things nobody eats. And for some reason, they're still being made, even though most people agree they're disgusting. --But ironically, in the '60s they inspired one of the most-popular kids cereals of all time: Lucky Charms. It happened after the vice-president of General Mills grated up Circus Peanuts and put them in his Cheerios.

    Peanut Butter Kisses

    We can't believe that these things are still being made. They are actually a form of taffy with a hint of peanut butter mixed in. Just thinking about them engages or gag reflex.

    Necco Wafers

    This one's flawed though, because their biggest gripe is that the company started making them all-natural a few years back . . . using things like red beet juice and purple cabbage instead of artificial flavors. --But this week, the company announced they're going back to their original recipe.
