It's not really a candy, but sweet as hell with a terrible taste - root beer!

@tsarstepan,
I would say White Rabbit milk candy. There is melamine being found in it. I used to eat these things during the 1960s. Found out the candy comes from Shanghai, China. How did it ever make it to the US during the Cold War?

@chai2,
I recently bought some of those little strawberry demons at the Family Dollar Store and broke a $2ooo dollar crown on a tooth that now needs to be replaced.

If that is not the definition of evil I don't know what is. They were very fresh so that was not the problem and delicious too with the side effect of swallowing part of my dental work.

No more hard candies, EVER.

Not even if I promise myself I will only suck on them. That is not possible.

How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop?

One, two, THREE!... (says the wise old owl)

@tsarstepan,
Ugh! Yuck! Yucky ugh!

I'm not a fan of kale to begin with.


(additionally, that shade of green leaves something to be desired)

Too much candy: Man dies from eating bags of black licorice
Quote:
A Massachusetts construction worker’s love of black licorice wound up costing him his life. Eating a bag and a half every day for a few weeks threw his nutrients out of whack and caused the 54-year-old man’s heart to stop, doctors reported Wednesday.

“Even a small amount of licorice you eat can increase your blood pressure a little bit,” said Dr. Neel Butala, a cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital who described the case in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The problem is glycyrrhizic acid, found in black licorice and in many other foods and dietary supplements containing licorice root extract. It can cause dangerously low potassium and imbalances in other minerals called electrolytes.

@tsarstepan,
Poor guy should have sought help for his problem. Quite tragic when a man ain't able to hold his licorice.

Looking back f0ndly on this epic post.

Let me nominate Cadbury Eggs as one of the worst candies out there.
Case in point.

Well-meaning ad campaign for a candy that's vile tasting and even worse ... the texture of its creamy filling.
Did Same-Sex Kiss in Cadbury Ad Spark Angry Petition?
TO clarify, I don't care either way for the ad campaign.

This is supposed to be candy. I remember getting stuff like this and then after wearing it for a while you would chew it and it tastes like wax not candy --- well it is wax.

@McGentrix,
Not true!!! These are great for slates in roofs for gingerbread houses. Not to mention the factory is just miles away from me !

This era truly may be the darkest timeline.
Candy canes go sour, spicy, savory and salty — and (sometimes) scarce

They now make candy canes with Caesar salad, ketchup and brisket flavorings, if you're looking to freak it this Christmas.

@tsarstepan,
It's rock, they've been selling it at the seaside for years, and, unlike candy canes, it has writing all the way through.

It's always had flavours other than mint, just not meaty ones, although these are a bit suspect.

Edinburgh rock is different, it's soft.

@izzythepush,
Horehound candy

Originally a folk remedy for sore throat and respiratory problems, it has a bitter taste. I don't know if it works, but it's bad tasting enough that it should.

We have a similar thing called winter mixture boiled sweets tasting of cloves and cough medicine.
