Many people love Halloween. You don’t need to go trick-or-treating to enjoy the day because most people love candy. However, not all candies are created equal.

Do you enjoy eating wax? If not, then it’s safe to assume trick-or-treaters won’t appreciate that Almond Joy you give them.
It’ll sit at the bottom of their bag for months as a reminder of how nasty they are.
People get into heated exchanges over candy corn. Some love it, while others claim it’s no better than nasty wax.
If you give some to the latter, they’ll secretly hate you.
Hard Grandma Candies
Butterscotch buttons were tasty in the 1950s. If you’re giving out hard butterscotch buttons or mints, it’s best to rethink your approach.
Cinnamon is another divisive item. For many, they’d rather not take that fake cinnamon sugar “treat” you want to give them.
Who wants fruit on Halloween? Raisins are nasty, and putting chocolate on them doesn’t make them any better.
If your Halloween plans include Bit-O-Honey, it’s best to think again.
Gum is a lovely thing to get on Halloween. Dubble Bubble is not that. This “gum” is made to outlast nuclear winter and is hard enough to take out a mouthful of teeth.
Anything That’s Not Candy
Halloween is about candy, not something else. If you’re thinking of giving out oranges or any other item that’s not candy, don’t waste your time.
Necco Wafers have been around for over 150 years. They also seem like they’ve been around that long.
Do trick-or-treaters and their teeth a favor and give out something else.
Gluing candy to paper seems like a fantastic idea, right? Wrong. If you’re considering candy buttons as a thing to pass out, just go for chocolate.
Licorice isn’t candy. Worse yet, if not fresh, Twizzlers turn rock-hard. Do parents a favor and opt for something else.
Good & Plenty
Giving out Good & Plenty shows you last went trick-or-treating 60+ years ago. Again, opt for chocolate or Skittles, and kids will be happy.
The goal is to rot teeth, not break them. If Mary Jane candies are on your Halloween list, think again.
