Trick or — wait, what? You only have Mike & Ikes? No, thanks.
Oh, to be young and have your candy options controlled by those oddball neighbors. We know, it was a drag. But grown-up Halloween means never having to eat anymore off-brand Good and Plentys. So we’ve taken a Fork in the Road poll to find out everyone’s most hated Halloween candy.
Check out our answers below and tell us your least favorite choices in the comments.
Robert Sietsema: Almond Joy — what the hell is in the chocolate? Also Brach’s caramels, Snickers fun size, and Hershey’s Kisses.
Jessica Goodman: I actually dislike Hershey bars. Boring! And kind of chalky.
Clarissa Wei: CANDY CORN.
Eric Sundermann: I always hated getting Now and Laters. I’m not at all a patient person as an adult, so imagine nine-year-old me having to wait for those things to soften up in my mouth. It was not pretty. I would always just get mad and crunch them, essentially breaking my teeth. Safe to say that they played a significant role in my younger self needing braces.
Mallory Stuchin: Charleston Chew. Not as a kid and not ever.
