Let me go and ...






sorry...




threw up at my desk thinking of the Swedish/Finnish salty black licoricethat's a thing (key ingredient is ammonia). The holocaust of candy?

@chai2,
Hey! There are thosee with refined tastes (not necessarily me), who like licorice...and I like it too.

As for dreadful, I'd point at those tri-color sugar things called candy corn.

Even worse, jujubes. Had them once and became quite sick.

Never touch them, they are the food of Beelzebub!

What’s going on here? On Friday, TODAY consumer correspondent Janice Lieberman reported that Hershey’s has switched to less expensive ingredients in several of its products. In particular, cocoa butter — the ingredient famous for giving chocolate its creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture — has been replaced with vegetable oil.

These things, whatever they are....

It's not that they taste by definition Awful. They are the candy that's sitting in a dish at places like a gastroenterology center, which you nervously reach for while sitting in the waiting room to be called in for your colonoscopy. Then you realize you can't even eat it anyway, so you put it back with no regrets.

The same piece has been picked up and replaced thousands of times.

The last batch of them were made about 45 years ago, and 95% of them are still around.

@chai2,
I don't usually touch those things. When they're unwrapped I just don't trust them.

When in any medical visit, I refuse to consider them even if they're in a sealed individual packet.

Those strawberry things are something I allow my mouth to have on rare occasions (as in once or twice a year) when I purchase them to out for visitors.

These goddamn bastards right here. I have done a search of the most evil one, wintergreen, with no success. I feel that flavor was obviously discontinued because the bluish green mother f#ckers finally succeeded in choking its victim to actual death.

I stand witness to the attempt of one such ball that almost ended it for me. Circa 1964 I was standing at the reception area of Emma's Beauty Salon whilst my mother was getting her hair did. I'd already read all the latest on Liz and Dick, and was flipping through Emma's "hairdo of the month" desk calendar, when, fascinated by its unearthly color I unwrapped the wintergreen one and popped it in my mouth.

The flavor surprised, almost repulsed me, and the imp took the opportunity to slide down my throat and lodge there. Realizing I couldn't breath, my first thought was to not tell my mother, as then I'd be in trouble. Things were starting to go black when somehow I managed to use the last of the air in my lungs to gag it back up. It felt like my eyes were bugging out pretty good.

Seeing that no one had noticed, I examined it between my fingers briefly, then, well, waste not want not, put it back in my mouth.

Below is a bonus image of a typical hairstyle in said calendar....

Wintergreen I find to be a solid form of 1960s mouthwash.
Is Wintergreen even supposed to be consumed?

I am a chocoholic, but I have never touched Hersey's - they're chocolates are just gross, always have been. Try to eat Milka (if you can get it) or Lindt.

@Sturgis,
Wintergreen thats used in lifesavers can do a neat little trick. The methyl salicylate (I can give you the lab recipe) , when mixed with sugar , as a solid solution, then dried to form a crystal, can gnerate light when crushed. Take a wintergreen lifesaver and go into a closet with a mirror and crush it in your teeth. It,ll flash and shoot teeny sparks. Its a trick that a few rocks can duplicate, called triboluminescence.
Of course the wintergreen isnt real, its the artificial mthyl sal that the body will metabolize into salysilic and salicic acid (ASPIRIN).
Mot of us hate wintergreen cause it smelld like Ben Gay , (Thats cause it IS Ben Gay)

@farmerman,
so my vote for the vilest candy is ANYTHING made with" wintergreen oil" (methyl salysilate).

@farmerman,
I sat on the seat of an exercise bike at a gym once, not realizing the person before me had Ben Gay on their legs.

It burned in places I didn’t know I had.

@izzythepush,
cinnamon should be an "under" flavor. An apple pie needs cinnamon along with nutmeg and butter and sugar. I cant think of any candy made that features cinnamon that I like either. Those hard candies that look like Murano glass I avoid because they feature peppermint , cinnamon, wintergreen and licorice flavors as the main tastes. These candies are best left in a bowl as a table decoration, not a snack candy.

@farmerman,
I wasn't talking about cinnamon as a cooking ingredient. I think it goes well with apple. I was talking about sweets, just sweets.

I have no idea what wintergreen is.

I like soft liquorice and when I was in Copenhagen really liked liquorice flavour ice cream. Hotel Chocolat's liquorice flavoured runny caramel is really nice too, but there are some types I wouldn't touch with a barge pole.

I go through phases, tend to like it for a few months then I'm off it for a long time, usually about a year.
