Raisins and paper candy are at least things you've heard of. I remember getting some odd home-made, napkin-wrapped things that I didn't trust. I'd have to rate those among the worst. I also didn't care for little bags with 13 pennies in them.

Though the raisins reminds of a quote from the animated series Dariah:
"Raisins are nature's candies."
"Then how come they have to cover them in chocolate to sell them?"

Some jesus freaks pass out Bible tracks to trick-or-treaters, but fortunately I don't ever remember getting one. Though as I think I said on another thread, they might as well hand out pieces of paper that say "Please egg my house".

Quote:
I remember a comedian once saying it [candy corn] 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.

You might be thinking of Lewis Black, who said it tasted like it was made out of oil, and that all of it was made in 1904. Personally, I like candy corn, but any unwrapped form of candy is just plain weird as a trick-or-treat handout.

One Halloween, I believe I was 9 or 10, I recieved a miniature box of Grapenuts cereal. I felt robbed. That is the worst cereal ever. It is like chewing on gravel and no amount sugar could make it taste any better.

A few years later a friend and I were accosted by some over zealous preacher who wanted to usher us in the church so he could "save us". The way we saw it the guy was giving us two choices: candy or preaching. Not very hard choice there. By that point in my life I had already considered myself an Atheist; but even if I was a believer I probably would have taken Snickers over "salvation".

This Halloween was spent on a couch not moving because I suffered a broken fibula the other day in a car accident. I was not able to participate in any tricks or treats. So, in a way, I think the worst "treat" I recieved for Halloween was no treat at all.

I got a rock. frown Sorry, I couldn't resist.


The Catholic church (that was practically across the street from me), sent young parishioners out to tell people the church was giving out dollars to trick or treaters.

I went to investigate as to why so many kids were claiming this, when it seemed so unlikely. I walked over and hid behind a light post to spy. I guess I didn’t really have to hide, but I figured it added to the sneaky spying experience and I was kind of a weird creepy kid. My suspicions were right, the church was really giving out prayer pamphlets.

I laughed my ass off over it and decided to tell every kid I ran into that I got a dollar from the church. I figured if they were dumb enough to fall for it, they deserve to be tricked.

Candy corn is the most disgusting candy on earth and shouldn't even be considered candy. More like candle bits.

edible Chalk sticks (no joke) they were powdered sugar in the form of chalk sticks they were alot smaller though.

Then I got this really weird chinese candy its was basicly the size of a eighth of your standard gelatin cup yet still completely indepently packaged with chinese characters you could not read.
It tasted like bad gelatin btw

That's awesome, you are so evil. And evil will always triumph over good because good is dumb. crossbones

As an aside, I just remembered something I raised my eyebrow at in the Halloween candy aisle this year: little mini tubs of Play Dough. Sounds cool. I almost bought some to play with. But is it such a good idea to hand that out to kids? I mean, you know the little heathens will be eating that stuff by the fistful. Well, I guess if candy corn is digestable that stuff probably is too. grin

(For the record, I really really really like candy corn. Two days later, I am still Jack's Candy Corn Hangover.)

The worst thing I ever got for Halloween:

One year in My late teens, As a requirement to uphold My residency with My then-religiously devout mother, I was forced to attend a church "carnival" held for the purpose of "saving" the kids from roaming the streets and collecting candy from the Devil's influence on this most "evil" of nights.
Instead they had offered face paint, basketball, a hay-ride (where a concerned mother removed her daughter from upon learning I was in line behind her)and of course, sugar-free candy handed out with prayers tied to the wrappers, among other things I observed, but participated with nothing save the hay-ride. After all this, they wanted Me to partake of hand-holding singing for Jesus which I had to decline.

I'll take toothbrushes and candy corn over that ANY day!!

I remember a brand of that candy called "Chewy Chalk". I once brought a pack to school in the 7th grade, and as a joke I would secretly leave a piece on the chalk ledge when nobody was looking, but then when others were around, I'd nonchalantly pick it up and eat it in front of them. It sure creeped some students out. coopdevil

I remember the candy cigarettes. They weren't marketed as such but that is what they were. They use to have one end painted brown and one end painted red simulating the filter and "cherry". You could also blow fake smoke by holding it to your lips and blowing on it. The "smoke" was actually owdered sugar. To top it all off then came in little boxes with flip up lids just like real cigarettes and my favorite "brand" had a hawk on it.

They still make the candy sticks but they no longer are made to resemble cigarettes. They stil make my favorite "brand" too, still has the same hawk on it.

I used to get those from the ice cream truck years back. They were in fact marketed as candy ciggs in my area. It had the simulated cherry, but the rest was all white and powdery as you described.
As far as a satisfying snack goes, they were rather lacking, but the imagination-based idea behind it, is what kept me buying for a while.
Hey, I was what, 8 years old. It didn't take much to entertain me.

I always had a perfectly satanic halloween because luckly my birthday is on the first of November which now I can announce that I am 23 years of age.

I never really had bad candy except for pencils, erasers, and other junk. Half the night was spent on scaring smaller children when I was dressed up as a vampire. That was my main character during my childhood years. I always were a vampire.

This halloween, I partied in Memphis for my two holidays and took my son trick or treating.

I liked my treats and would barter with other unsuspecting kids to trade off the candy I wasn't fond of. I'd also save some candy for a month or so and sell it at school long after everyone else had gobbled down the last of their candy stash.

I do have a worst trick. My worst trick was a creepy wackidoodle neighborhood freak who papered my house on Halloween. I was suspicious it was him the first time and he continued to paper it each day on the weekends for at least a month even after he was caught in the act.

I'm sure he derived some sort of sick perverse joy out of standing inside his bedroom window and watching me clean up his tee pee mess. After the first two times he did it I cried hysterically the minute my parents knocked on my bedroom door in the early morning so in a very very rare act of pity my family cleaned up the mess instead of me.

A few years ago I heard he was busted for cocaine possession so I finally received my overdo "treat." Better late than never! devilchili

I never enjoyed sweets in sugar powder. There was only one kind which I liked, they were some bonbons of which name I can not recall. I didn't see them in shops anymore, only some substitutes, which weren't that good. I suspect they are not produced anymore, as they were a product in socialist era and by it's ending, some (quite good) sweets were gone as well.

Instead of cigarettes in sugar powder, I was enjoying chocolate cigarettes. It was pelleted in paper, and it's appearance was very convincing. They were similar to these:



Smoking of chocolate cigs was very popular between kids for obvious reason. smile Kids are usually wishing to be adults soon, so they can do (also) those forbidden things which adults do.
