Dieting Gallery: 10 Halloween Candies We Hate

It’s virtually impossible to have a giant bowl of candy sitting around your house for days without dipping your hand into it every now and then. But that makes dieting during Halloween a real challenge. Yesterday, FitSugar posted some advice on how to resist the urge to dip into the trick-or-treaters’ candy coffers: Only buy candy you hate. That way, the temptation will be nonexistent. Check out our gallery of ten Halloween candies we just don’t have a taste for. You may become the most hated house on the block, but at least you’ll look good. And who knows — maybe all the little ghouls and goblins who knock on your front door will specifically ask for black licorice and candy corn. But we kind of doubt it. Let us know your least favorite Halloween candy in the comments section.

      I actually do like these. the candy corn I eat in three little nibbles, each color since I was a kid. The pumpkins are the same way.

      You’ve got to be kidding! It would be amazing to find anything by Russell Stover in that list, let alone their chocolate-covered pumpkins. I’ve had OTHER brands that taste like crap, but not the Russell Stover.

      Actually I like mellow cremes and candy corn especially the chocolate combo. I look forward to eating them at Halloween. There is even a candy apple flavor. Yum.

      I agree with your list completely, but would add Necco wafers and circus peanuts.

      I dislike candy corn/pumpkins. A lot of sugar without much real “taste”. I’d also add that anything along the gummy worm/bear line is a no go for me. I don’t like the texture or taste, let alone the shapes these come in. Kids seem to like them though. I don’t do licorice either. Put peanuts in a candy & I’ll stay out of it. However, anything chocolate (especially dark chocolate) is hard for me to resist. Anything else is not worth fighting for.
