Troy Dyer said...

+1 on Pennies or a Jesus pamphlet.
For candy the orange and black wrapped candy or loose candy corn. Didn’t mix well with the pennies ☹️

MeliticusBee said...

anything licorice flavored...gumdrops

gauloise said...

Favorite: Candy/bubble gum cigarettes :)

Fuchsia said...

Anything homemade. Yuck.

. said...

Apples.

Those darned things get heavy after a few houses, they end up bruised, and then get tossed out just before the sugar orgy begins.

candy corn

Alf Landon said...

orange and black wrapped peanut butter chews

Lou said...

Those brown Halloween candy, yuckie

Brayson87 said...

@., Those be throwing apples!

Melvin G. said...

Milk Duds and any fruit wrapped in a plastic bag.

cat said...

The only good thing about the orange and black wrapped candy was each piece lasted forever.

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

Apples. I grew up in an apple orchard and am a fourth generation farmer. They weren't a treat for me.

Do Tell said...

Bit o' Honey was the worst, followed by the black licorice candy (I can't remember what the name was, it came in little candy coated pieces, and I HATED it)

Town Pump said...

Tootsie Rolls 👿

gauloise said...

Mallow cups, like peanut butter cups but with marshmallow, yuck :p Only ever saw them at halloween

Town Pump said...

😆 I forgot about those Jesus pamphlets! How cruel.

MountainMama said...

Circus Peanuts

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Tootsie rolls or Tootsie pops and anything that was like that chewy taffy stuff.

Unknown said...

Being called wankers by a group of pissed up, partying teenagers.
I could take it but my two young children were pretty shaken up.

Unknown said...

I tried some Moon Pies in Miami after seeing them on TV a lot.
I should have guessed when two packets of four were a dollar.
I thought I was getting a taste of America but it was a taste of disappointment and chemicals.
They're like UK Wagon Wheels but with no discernible taste.
I gave a packet to a homeless guy and I remember him looking disappointed but his mate sat next to him had a look on his face like I'd pooped in his hand.

Unknown said...

Raisins from the guy at the end of the street who owned the rabbit farm.

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

@ Moon Pie Unknown

He probably would have looked that way at anything that wasn't money.

Alf Landon said...

black licorice candy is called Good-N-Plenty

Dane said...

Good n Plenty

Ann said...

Dum Dum suckers were they too freaking poor to at least buy Tootsie pops?

Aquagirl said...

Cold weather. My mother would make me wear either jeans under my costume or a coat. It ruined my look!

incrediblegecko said...

I'm with Brayson87.
Raisins sucked the big one!

AbbyRock said...

My mother was very strict about our diet so I loved all of the candy. Think we were allowed to have the candy when we got home and maybe the next day after school we were given a few pieces and then poof went the candy.

Gator said...

An apple

Mooney said...

Even if it was a terrible candy I’d still eat it because sugar. I hated the dark special Hershey chocolate until I ran out of Reese’s cups and started dipping them in peanut butter. Still do that today but with better dark chocolate.

Unknown said...

Definitely the popcorn balls!

Me Again said...

My neighbor used to give out little tubes of toothpaste and toothbrushes. Right into the trash it went.
Weirdo.

Town Pump said...

One year some do-gooder gave my kid dark chocolate covered cranberries! What kind of sick freak....

Guesser said...

I'm the only one who likes popcorn balls? Those hard taffy black and orange things are bad. Taffy should be soft.

TeeHee@U said...

Candy Corn. But, for some reason it is my Mom's favorite candy so it worked out well for her.

Seriously, candy corn!?!? haha so gross

Vita said...

Good n Plenty

Brayson87 said...

@AbbyRock, Parent Candy Thievery (PCT) is real and there's a rise in cases around the holidays. I know, it happened in my house. When I found out it was a greater shock than when I realized my pet goldfish didn't actually live five years. Parents are liars who will steal your candy and replace your pets. 😂

Unknown said...

He did very quickly ask for a dollar.
I genuinely replied:
"I've just spent my last one on this shit"
I didn't really sell them..

Unknown said...

Yeah...like when they told me I'd caught them 'wrestling'
Yeah maybe 1 Night in Chyna wrestling...

Unknown said...

Raisins..."nature's candy"

A.Claire said...

Pencils.... But, in my early teens, yes I trick/treated in middle school, my friends and I wised up and hit all the upper class neighborhoods. Full on king sized reeses pieces yo! I'll have to dig up the photo of us all dressed as "wise guys," pin stripes, hats and eyeliner mustaches! So cute!

BoltOfLightning said...

Death threats

Weekittylass said...

Lol Bolt. I buy truffles straight off of Lindt.com. A huge bowl and they get two handfuls.

flowerpower said...

Apples, or anything with peanuts because I'm allergic.

Max Power said...

Herpes.

Even worse? Popcorn balls.

Jennifer said...

Good n Plenty. 😝 Gross!

Marybel said...

Raisins

Half Domer Homer said...

Handful of goo.

sam98 said...

pretzels

splatford said...

Chick-o-sticks ..Its not that i didnt love the shit out of them but it always took a team of dentists and six high powered pressure washings to get it out of my teeth

MountainMama said...

I am rather floored at the popcorn ball hate. My brothers and I would plan our whole evening around the old neighborhood ladies that gave them out. We would go to their houses first and hit all the other houses in between. We kept it reeled in between Ave D and E but hit both sides of four streets. Ah the good old days. Nary a dark house, everyone was happy to throw something into your bag. Good candy for three days, the crap for the rest of the week. Good times.

☹Licorice & Pretzels☹

DJS NOLA said...

live in new orleans and this woman gave out a mardi gras bead.. singular lol so weird to do for halloween

Astra Worthington said...

Tootsie rolls and Tootsie pops. NASTY. Milky Way and Three Musketeers, also the ones with the peanuts, is it Baby Ruth? I think there’s two of them like that. Bit O Honey and those weird types of old candy too. And anything with raisins, fuck raisins, they’re the devil’s own food. I love the candy corn pumpkins though, candy corn is ok but the pumpkins are where it’s at. I never eat candy now but I bought a bag of them today at Five Below 🎃 Delicious!

Hootspa said...

Lemonheads. The most insipid "candy" ever.

Ava said...

A nickel, same house every year.

TheBPlot said...

Raisins

henny said...

Those decades old, dry ass hell, hard as rocks, pieces of double bube. Blech

Alana said...

one tootsie roll

JBW said...

Fucking apples....

AbbyRock said...

@Brayson87, my dad might have eaten candy but not my Mom. We had doctors as our side and backyard neighbors. My Mom used to get 365 diet pills at a time from each of them.

Canaussie said...

APPLES.

DarylsBigFan said...

Chewing gum; or anything with peanut butter or nuts.

Sd Auntie said...

coconut candy..necco wafers and raisins. everything else...ok

Red Velvet Boots said...

Anything non-chocolate

Fuchsia said...

All the hate for the black and orange peanut butter taffy makes me sad. I freakin love those. Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses are the best version.

Sd Auntie said...

me too!! i brought them into work and only a few PB fans ate them. don't care for chocolates covered Marshmallow, peeps, soft center chocolate or rum cherry chocolates 🤮🤮

Hotbox said...

Butterfingers. I would bring them to trade at lunchtime. It was the only time I was ever popular.

Ava said...

Same! I remember making them back in the day too!

James Howlett said...

Old lady candy it always tasted like moth balls, probably were moth balls.
