Halloween is quickly approaching, and if you want to be one of the popular houses in your neighborhood and avoid getting egged, you need to follow one simple rule. Don't buy bad candy!

Listen, I get it. Inflation has left no product behind. Your candy is probably going to cost more this Halloween. But that is NO excuse to save a few cents and get bad candy! You remember what it felt like after going up to a house and being handed a Tootsie Roll and some candy corn. Don't let that become your house this Halloween. In case you need a reminder, here are the least popular, or worst candies to hand out according to CandyStore.com.

  1. Circus Peanuts
  2. Candy Corn
  3. Peanut Butter Kisses
  4. Necco Wafers
  5. Plastic Coke Bottles
  6. Smarties
  7. Mary Janes
  8. Tootsie Rolls
  9. Black Licorice
  10. Good and Plenty

Talk about a big bag of YUCK. This list was voted on by over 15,000 candy-loving customers. I can still remember the disappointment of finding some of these gems in my trick-or-treating bag. It honestly isn't that hard to be a Halloween hero. You just have to have the right candy bars. In case you've been living under a coffin, here is what you should be handing out this year.

  1. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
  2. M&Ms
  3. Snickers
  4. Skittles
  5. Sour Patch Kids
  6. Hershey's
  7. Kit Kat
  8. Twix
  9. Butterfinger
  10. Hot Tamales

Want to be a Halloween Legend? Go full-size and blow the minds of kids all night! Yes, I know that kids should be grateful for whatever free candy you decide to hand out. But ask yourself which you'd rather eat.  A circus peanut or a Reeses? That's what I thought! Happy Halloween!
