The Ultimate Worst Candy Showdown: Candy Corn vs. Circus Peanuts

The spookiest night of the year is almost here, which means that houses all across the United States are stocking up on Halloween candy to pass out to trick-or-treaters.

If you’re out there picking up tasty treats to hand out this year, you might want to skip the candy corn, though.

Trick-or-Treaters Don’t Want Your Candy Corn

Turns out, even though these iconic tri-colored triangles are one of the most-used symbols of the spooky season, they’re not really all that popular. In fact, I’ve never seen a piece of candy incite so many arguments.

Of course, a proper study of the most and least popular Halloween candies is a must, so a website called CandyStore did all the hard work for us. They dropped a list titled “WORST Halloween Candy Ranked” in which they blessed us all with the top 10 worst.

I bet you can guess what appeared at #1.

Following candy corn in the top spot, circus peanuts took the #2 spot.

Is Candy Corn Really Worse Than Circus Peanuts?

Now, I don’t know about you, but if I had to pick between candy corn or circus peanuts, I’d eat candy corn every time. Who really thinks that candy corn is worse than circus peanuts?!

Obviously, this list got me thinking. I don’t know if they didn’t survey enough sane people, or maybe some people got confused by the question.

So which is the absolute worst Halloween candy out there? Circus peanuts or candy corn?
