What are the worst treats you remember getting when you went trick or treating?

Here are some of my favorite un-favorites:

1) Raisens - Nature's candy. Wow, really? Not exactly 3 Musketeers, but thanks, lady.

2) Apples - Actually, not so bad if people just handed these to me. It was the big barrel of apples, water, and other people's slobber that made these a bit unsavory.

3) Those Weird Popcorn Balls - What exactly held these together in a ball, I may never know, except it tasted like sweetened Elmer's glue, and the popcorn was stale and rock hard.

4) Candy Corn - This stuff always reminded me of rotten teeth, partly because it looked like rotten, stained teeth, and partly because it tasted like wax and sugar. I remember a comedian once saying it tasted like sugary dust, like it was all made in the early 1950s, and candy corn "manufacturers" were still trying to exhaust this vast supply.

5) Those Strips of Wax Paper with the Candy Dots on Them - The candy dots were okay, I guess. Better than the candy corn anyway, except the dots would never quite come off the wax paper, and I was left to either eat the paper or spit out paper as I accumulated it in my mouth.

Any other contenders?

I got a LOT of raisin boxes as a kid.

The most undesired candy was without doubt the bulk mix of candy corn and salt water taffy (the kind in orange and black plain wrappers). Who the fuck eats this?

I got a toothbrush once. Seriously. Not a candy toothbrush. Not a joke saying "Here, you'll need to brush your teeth" and then he says just kidding and gives out candy. Not from a dentist, but a house. He gave out toothbrushes.

I guess that is better than razor blades or broken glass, but damn...

An orange.

And they didn't give it to me... they threw it to me.

From a moving car.

Ouch!

I like candy. But the worst thing I ever got on Halloween was definitely children.

Children. Knocking. On. My. Door.

Oh the horror.

Gotta love living in a country that still hasn't adopted the practice of trick or treating on Halloween! I turned the porch light out just in case though!

Me and my girlfriend got fliers to join the Evangelical Luthern Church. We also got a pencil.

A can of Coors light beer, no joke - the house was reported to the police by a few angry parents.

I heard of a similar reaction when a house handed out condoms.
