Eight Kinds Of Halloween Candy You Shouldn't Give Out...
You're probably all stocked up on Halloween candy by now, but if you still have some shopping to do, "Esquire" has a list of candy you SHOULDN'T give out to kids. According to them, it's because they're not as 'good' as other Halloween candies.
--The entire list is debatable, but here are the top eight . . .
#1.) CANDY CORN. Because it has the, quote, "consistency of a car tire."
#2.) BIT-O-HONEY. Because it's too old-school. In fact, "Esquire" says if you give out Bazooka bubble gum, Necco wafers, or Bit-O-Honey's on Halloween, the kids who come to your door will be aged by "several decades." Whatever that means.
#3.) TWIZZLERS. Because they're not as good as licorice.
#4.) STARBURST. Because, according to "Esquire", they have a "weird aftertaste" if you eat more than three. (???)
#5.) NOW AND LATERS. Because they have to sit in the sun for a few hours before they're soft enough to eat.
#6.) SMARTIES. Because it's just sugar pressed into a tablet, and according to "Esquire", it shouldn't qualify as candy.
#7.) THREE MUSKETEERS. This is probably the most popular Halloween candy "Esquire" says you SHOULDN'T give out. Their reasoning is . . . there's just way too much nougat.
#8.) ANYTHING THAT'S NOT CANDY. "Esquire" says if you're planning to give out carrot sticks, pennies, or apples without caramel . . . just leave your porch light off.
