So my husband has a thing with another woman.
That thing is making top ten blog postings with my bestie Amy. I decided that if he does this with her he could very well do one with me, so we collaborated on our top ten worst ever candies we’ve ever tasted. They do not match because our tastes are very different but you’ll get the gist, I’m sure.

10. Reese Peanut Butter Cups
Yes, I realize many of you are scratching your heads at this. But I do no like my peanut butter and chocolate touching each other, with the exception of Wonderbar. The peanut butter that they use for Reese’s is so sickeningly sweet and icky, and the chocolate is sub-par. Don’t get me wrong, I would eat them if I was starving or desperately craving a sugar fix but only in desperation.
9. White Chocolate
Not a fan of any white chocolate with the exception of Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bar sparingly. A whole bar is beyond sickening, but a little here and there is alright. Maybe it’s because it’s not even real chocolate, and so milky. Blech!!
8. Marshmallow Bananas
This actually becomes anything that tastes like fake-ass bananas. But these things not only taste like fake-ass bananas they feel like Styrofoam in your mouth and it is not good to have Styrofoam stuck in your teeth that tastes like this shit. I have to also include Runts bananas in this category, I actually like Runts candies except the bananas. I couldn’t believe when they came out with only bananas and people went crazy for them, what is wrong with this world?
7. Maynard’s Sour Chillers
Mint in my gum is a no-no, unless it’s mints. SO you may be wondering why I loved Sprite Ice but mint in my candy is a no-go. What can I say I’m a bit weird and neurotic about strange things. Can’t help it, I’m just a freak
6. Turkish Delight
Now I wanted to try this for the longest time. I first heard about it in C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe and that made me desperately want to try it, but could never find it around at that time. Then I discovered Big Turk by Nestle, and I really like that, but a couple years ago I found some real Turkish Delight at Halifax’s Freak Lunchbox and got really excited….. until I put it in my mouth. It made me think of chewing a gummy flower bouquet, disgusting!!
5. Thrills Gum & Skittles Fizzles
Yes, it truly does taste like soap. I included the new(er) Skittles Fizzles because that’s what I think they taste like as well. The premise of the Skittles sounds awesome, fizzy candy on the outside of your candy instead of sucking a hard candy to get to it, unfortunately it just doesn’t work, well for me anyway.’
4. Good & Plenty
This is actually all black licorice and anything that tastes like black licorice but I chose Good and Plenty as my main one because I unknowingly threw a bunch in my mouth one Halloween many, many years ago. How cruel to hand this shit out to kids at Halloween, the way some kids felt about raisins as a treat, well that’s how I felt about Good and Plenty. BTW, I love raisins, lol
3. Candy Corn
Another Halloween fave of many that I just simply can’t stomach. It was also a book that made me want to try this as well. The Candy Corn Contest by Patricia Reilly Giff, I loved her books as a child and this one in particular made me want to try candy corn. Well I did, I got grossed out, I never went back, lol
2. Wax Bottle Juice Thingies
I thought I remembered loving these things as a kid but when I fairly recently found them and tried them again I have a very tough time believing I used to love them, but then again kids like weird things and I was always really weird, lol. I did chew on the wax after for so long. Now that I’m thinking about it I believe Mrs.Cooling’s 3rd grade class used to get these things as Bingo prizees, lol.
1. Bertie Bott’s (Jelly Belly) Disgusting Flavour Beans
I actually don’t mind the grass one if I’m being totally honest here, and I did not taste the vomit one and would not attempt it knowingly. I would then be forced to puke I am sure, but I did try the pepper, ear wax, dirt, and some of the other ones. They were not pleasant to say the least, which is why they rank Number one on my list but the others are not really in any particular order.
So that’s my list, don’t forget to check out Eric’s list from the link above. (Yes I am too lazy to go link it again, sorry). Hope you’ve enjoyed it and check out the poll below and vote for your disagreements. I expect quite a few for reese PB Cups, lol
