    It's a sure bet you'll get TP-ed by unhappy trick or treaters if you give away anything on this list.  LOL                                                                         PamTop Ten Worst Halloween 'Candies'</h3>Posted by Erin Zimmer , October 14, 2008 at 10:15 AM <a>digg</a> Editor's Note: To continue our Halloween coverage, here's a look at what the bad houses give out. Trick-or-treaters, beware: This is the gross stuff you probably want to avoid. Toothbrushes</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-toothbrush.jpg" alt="20081013-toothbrush.jpg" width="150" height="138" />Dentists and orthodontists 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.Raisins</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-raisin-box.jpg" alt="20081013-raisin-box.jpg" width="109" height="150" />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 kazoolike instrument , though, is kinda fun.)  <a></a>Candy Corn</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-candy-corn-2.jpg" alt="20081013-candy-corn-2.jpg" width="150" height="106" />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.  Smarties and Necco Wafers</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-necco2.jpg" alt="20081013-necco2.jpg" width="150" height="114" />The chalky candy is supposedly fruit-flavored, but no fruit I know tastes like dustand makes everything eaten after taste like dust, too.  Dum Dum Lollipops</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-dumdum2.jpg" alt="20081013-dumdum2.jpg" width="150" height="100" />Usually, foods on a stick are yummy (corn dogs, ice pops), but DumDums just can't be included on that list. Not even if they were breaded and deep-fried and served at a fair.  Apples</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-apple.jpg" alt="20081013-apple.jpg" width="150" height="123" />Before the poisoned candy scare, evil people handed out apples. After the scare (OK, perhaps it's an urban legend), even eviler people handed out apples with sharp blades and needles hidden inside, making this treat even more disappointing.  Tootsie Rolls</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-tootsie.jpg" alt="20081013-tootsie.jpg" width="150" height="113" />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.  Miscellaneous, Wrapped Hard Candies</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-strawberryhard.jpg" alt="20081013-strawberryhard.jpg" width="150" height="115" />Halloween is supposed to be a holiday for young people, not senior citizens who suck on hard candies all day. Something about the strawberry-shaped strawberries, gold-wrapped butterscotch, and peppermint feels past the expiration date. (These usually get set aside for Granny.)  Laffy Taffy</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-laffytaffy2.jpg" alt="20081013-laffytaffy2.jpg" width="150" height="91" />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.  Anything Fun-Sized</h4><img class="photo-right" src="http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20081013-funsized.jpg" alt="20081013-funsized.jpg" width="150" height="112" />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.

    Here is another funny one gang.... LOL11 Treats You Pray You Dont Get on Halloween</h2>Posted by: Daniel Joseph on October 27th, 2009 Halloween rules! Free candy, <a href="http://www.topcultured.com/lesbians/" title="lesbians"> hot girls dressing provocatively </a>, and costume parties. Sometimes however, the costume parties suck, ugly girls trick you by dressing all hot, and neighbors give out the nastiest candy on Earth. So, because of that, here they are the 11 treats you pray you dont get this Halloween. 1. (BLEEP) Good & Plenty What kid wants to put a piece of poisoned plastic in their mouth? Answer: none. Also, why name your candy Good & Plenty when most people think its gross and offensive?<img class="size-full wp-image-2786" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-3.png" alt="good and plenty" title="good and plenty" width="511" height="324" />source: elle.com 2. A (BLEEP) Toothbrush First of all, you may be a dentist, and thats cool and all, but not on Halloween. Youve got 364 other days to give out toothbrushes, and this day isnt one of them. This goes for floss too. If i wanted floss, I wouldnt have come to your house, I would have went to CVS or something.<img class="size-full wp-image-2788" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-4.png" alt="toothbrush for halloween" title="toothbrush for halloween" width="478" height="288" />source: laist.com 3. Tootsie Rolls Tootsie Rolls are like the bread of candies. Its not good enough to eat by itself, and its not really exciting. Also, its unoriginal. Tootsie rolls have been around for about 2,000 years and even Jesus hated them (I had the citation on this, but I cant seem to find it anywhere). Also, they kinda look like cat turds, and you wouldnt wanna put those in your mouth, would you?Side note: were talking traditional tootsie rolls here, some of the flavored ones are pretty awesome.<img class="size-full wp-image-2790" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-5.png" alt="tootsie rolls halloween" title="tootsie rolls halloween" width="499" height="269" />source: chadzilla.typepad.com 4. JuJuBees The only thing Jujubees have going for them is that they look appealing. With all those bright candy colors, people are drawn to them. But beware, JUJUBEES WILL RIP YOUR TEETH OUT, almost as if you did something to piss them off.<img class="size-full wp-image-2791" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-61.png" alt="JuJuBees" title="JuJuBees" width="400" />source: frugalnutandcandy.com 5. Double Bubble Come on you mean to tell me that you went to the store to buy candy to give out on Halloween, and the thought that came across your mind was Double Bubble? Insane. If you wanna give out gum, thats perfectly fine, for example Bubble Yum makes some pretty badass flavors, but Double Bubble? Get real.<img class="size-full wp-image-2793" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-71.png" alt="double bubble gum" title="double bubble gum" width="497" height="215" />source: mastgeneralstore.com 6. Dirty Pennies Aint nothing wrong with pennies when youre giving them back to the cashier cause theyre not even worth jingling in your pocket, or when youre tossing them in a wishing well (even though that shit never works). However, giving out pennies on Halloween IS wrong. If youre going to give out money stick to dollars at least.<img class="size-full wp-image-2795" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-8.png" alt="dirty pennies" title="dirty pennies" width="454" height="241" />source: getmoneyenergy.com 7. Raisins Just dont. Seriously, does that look good to you? Unless theyre in an oatmeal raisin cookie, we dont want it.<img class="size-full wp-image-2796" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-9.png" alt="raisins" title="raisins" width="497" height="248" />source: onlinepastrychef.wordpress.com 8. Religious Tracts Its not Christmas, its Halloween. What would you do if you asked someone for a pencil and they gave you a bagel? You would look at them like they were mentally challenged right? And you dont want people to think youre mentally challenged, do you?<img class="size-full wp-image-2797" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-10.png" alt="source: flickr.com" title="religious tracts" width="500" />source: flickr.com 9. Themed Favors First off, this isnt even candy. Heres how its supposed to work: when I come to the door and say Trick or Treat, youre supposed to either do something scary that entertains me, or give me a treat, preferably both. Now some people think these are treats, but I can assure you theyre not. If you dont believe me, just Google halloween treats and tell me if you see any pencils. See also: stickers, coupons, etc.<img class="size-full wp-image-2798" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-111.png" alt="source: pumpkinrot.blogspot.com" title="halloween pencils" width="400" height="253" />source: pumpkinrot.blogspot.com 10. Circus Peanuts May as well be handing out packaging peanuts. Serious, the only thing these are good for is throwing them at people that give you bad candy. So if you dont want to get something thrown at you, I suggest not even looking at these when you go to the grocery store.<img class="size-full wp-image-2799" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-12.png" alt="source: momversation.com" title="circus peanuts candy" width="400" />source: momversation.com 11. Bags of Baby Carrots Most kids dont want to eat this when their parents put it in their lunch bags for school. So then, why do you think they would want a slimy bag of baby carrots in their pillowcase on Halloween? The only thing carrots are good for is carrot cake, oh, and bunnies like them, but kids dont. Remember that!<img class="size-full wp-image-2800" src="http://www.topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Picture-13.png" alt="source: salmonellablog.com" title="baby carrots" width="498" height="223" />source: salmonellablog.com *If you were thinking about giving any of these out, but then smartened up after reading this post, here are some ideas of things you can give out: Skittles, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Nerds, Dots, etc. I think you get the idea.

    Minus the raisins, the carrots and the apples, I would love to get everything else on both these lists. lol "
    "
    Don't give me anything that is good for me! Well, a toothbrush and some religious stuff are good for me, I suppose. The pennies can be converted to cash to do what I love and do best! Take a guess. [​IMG] I could use the pencils to balance my check book because I would have a lot of erasing to do when I keep deducting for my gambling expenses. [​IMG] "

    Thanks Pam. This was great.
