I was a dream trick-or-treating partner as a kid, because I like all the weird, old-people candies. Junior Mints? Yep. Milk Duds? Sure thing (exception: the “braces years,” 2001-2003). Whoppers? Oh heck yes. I don’t want to impose my weirdo preferences on modern kids, but I still doubt my candy palate sometimes. So, because I’m heading to Costco this weekend and don’t want to end up with 50 pounds of candy that kids totally hate: What would you say is absolute worst candy to give away on Halloween? I’ll start: Good & Plenty. [Kate Bernot]

Candy Corn. So gross. Stale when made. No flavor at all other than nondescript sweet overload. The kind of shit they feed you in Byzantine underworlds. Good & Plenty is vile as well, good call.
