Top 10 most hated Halloween treets
« on: October 28, 2013, 02:54:15 PM »
Here is a list of the 10 most despised  treats you could be given on Halloween, — or depending on what side of the door you are on, the top 10 reasons your house was Teepeed.


RAISENS - Little boxes of stuck-together shriveled globs are not what little kids schlep around the neighborhood for all night. When they say trick-or-treat, they want candy that will rot their teeth, not wrinkled grapes.  (Using an empty box as a kazoo-like instrument, though, is kinda fun.)

CANDY CORN - The most polarizing candy of all. The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away. If you love them, fine. But don't subject the rest of us haters to the sickeningly sweet triangle that tastes like neither candy nor corn.

NECCO WAFERS - These chalky candies are supposedly "fruit-flavored," but no fruit I know tastes like dust -- and makes everything eaten after taste like dust, too.

DUM DUM LOLIPOPS - Usually, foods on a stick are yummy (corn dogs, ice pops), but Dum Dums just can't be included on that list. Not even if they were breaded and deep-fried and served at a fair.

APPLES - Long before "poisoned candy" scares, evil people were handing out apples instead of candy on Halloween. This disappointing "treat" is the main reason to avoid unwrapped food while trick-or-treating.

TOOTHBRUSHES - Dentists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they're going to get all tooth doctory on us. Do not bring your work home with you, folks! We all have a personal responsibility to brush, and maybe some of us will forget, but your complimentary bristles on a stick (instead of a Snickers) will not help us remember. It will make us despise you and your trade.

TOOTSIE ROOLS - It looks like chocolate and sort of smells like chocolate, but the mini brown tubes are not real chocolate. They taste like watered-down chocolate, and have a chewy texture that will strip the fillings right off your molars.

LAFFY TAFFY - I do not laffy when I get these. I sobby. I get depressedy. Because it gets all stucky to my teethy and doesn't even taste that goody.

HARD WRAPPED CANDIES - Halloween is supposed to be a holiday for young people, not senior citizens who suck on hard candies all day. Strawberry-shaped strawberries and gold-wrapped butterscotch usually get set aside for Granny when she visits.

ANY-THING FUNSIZED - Who started calling it this? Since when is one bite fun?! Give us the rich houses with the sprawling driveways and full-sized candy bars any day. Portion control doesn't need to start this young.

And no kidding about the toothbrushes. We don’t invite my Father-in-Law who is a Dentist over to the house on Halloween anymore.  He did hand out brushes and toothpaste and a lecture about flossing to each of the kids. It was horribly embarrassing.

Horribly embarrassing, huh?   :silly: :silly:  I don't know why that struck me as funny today..

Hey!  I was about to post the same thing.  I also like Milk Duds.  And those Bit O Honey thingeys, though it takes too long to get the wrapper off.

Just finished off a big bag of candy corn.

Pure sugar... Yum!
