Polls Reveals the Bottom 5: The Worst Christmas Candy of the Year
Is there such a thing as bad candy? Yes.
There’s a lot of it. Granted that the question is subjective. However, when a large majority of those polled agree, then it’s a good bet there’s some sweet stuff you’ll want to avoid this holiday season.
The holidays are in full swing, and the holiday season always brings some delicious and not-so-delicious sweets and confections. There is some very yummy candy, and then there’s the sweets that always end up in the back of a truck or the bottom of a dumpster.
You know the candy, you take one bite and spit it out almost immediately. At the very least, you don’t finish the rest of it.
CandyStore.com knows this, and it polled more than 7,000 of its users to find the top 10 worst Christmas candy ever.
The Worst of the Worst
Which candy is the worst of the worst?
According to the poll, it’s Reindeer Candy Corn. It’s the Christmas version of many people’s least-favorite Halloween candy.
Coming in at number two is Christmas nougat. Just like nougat, but in Christmas colors. It’s also filled with that candied fruit that we all love to hate in fruitcake.
The third least favorite is just a little surprising. I’m not a fan of cherry cordials, but I know quite a few candy lovers who can get enough of them. Nevertheless, the people have spoken.
Next on the list is not surprising. If fact, one could argue that they should be at number one. Candy canes that aren’t peppermint. Who is the knucklehead who thought to create such a thing? Non-peppermint candy canes are fourth on the list.
Much like its Easter cousin, Christmas holiday Peeps are disliked by most and landed fifth on the list.
Other candies on the worst candy list include old-fashioned ribbon candy. Old-fashioned hard candies also popped up on the list. It seems old-fashioned stuff is no longer in fashion,
I was surprised to see that Life Savers Story Books were in the top ten. So was chocolate oranges and peppermint bark which rounded out the list.
The thought of candy is always positive, but just like sports teams, there are a lot of bad ones.
