Worst Halloween CandySource: CandyStore.com

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  Are my favorite.  Which means I’m normal.  Peanut butter cups are the nation’s favorite Halloween candy.  CandyStore.com offers this year’s lists of best and worst Halloween candies.  Candy corn tops the worst list, which is somewhat of a surprise.  Why?  Because candy corn is Idaho’s favorite!

You’re lucky because if Charlie Brown was around, he’d likely heave one of his rocks through a window.

Nationally, candy corn this year overtook Circus Peanuts as the overall worst in the survey.  Pity, I like both.  Good & Plenty and licorice are on the worst ledger.  I concur.  Same with Smarties.  Tootsie Rolls mystifies me.  Maybe because it’s not easy to chew.  Wax Coke Bottles finished as only 4th worst.  Who buys wax to pass out to kids?  You’re going to get your windows soaped and find toilet paper strung through your trees.  You’re lucky because if Charlie Brown was around, he’d likely heave one of his rocks through a window.

Getting to the favorite list, Snickers is second (good choice) but inexplicably, Twix is third.  What, is Grandma voting here?  Kit-Kat is 4th and M&M’s is 5th.

Did you know, Oregon favors Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?  So, I guess those people aren’t quite as evil as we sometimes believe.

When I was a boy there was a brand of peanut butter cups called Boyer.  Larger than Reese’s and chunky, too.  There were also Mallo Cups, which apparently still carry the Boyer name.

These came with cardboard coins beneath the cup wrappers.  You could save the coins and when you reached a certain amount, mail them back and get a gift in return.  Which should have been a trip to the dentist.  My mom had the coins on a strip of tape but I lost interest and they were never redeemed.

Any arguments with the list?
