In the spirit of the holiday, what would you say is the worst Halloween "treat" that a trick-or-treater could get? i.e. Charlie Brown got rocks... i.e. I have heard that dentists had out toothbrushes...
So have at it. What is your idea for the worst Halloween treat ever (that one could actually hand out to kids).
We used to play communion with those. (Catholic mass) They were perfect. I loved that chalky funny flavored candy. I'd buy them for the movie and sit in the dark and try to guess what color I was getting by the flavor. (early taste test.) The pink ones tasted like pepto bismol
I got raisins before! Not the best... Hmm... other bad ones... One year, this old man (like 200 or so) was literally scooping M&Ms out of a huge bowl with a spoon and just dumping them into our bags. That was creepy... And, another lady gave us fruit - No thanks.
I think you are talking about candy corn. Chocolate is always the best I think.
The other one I remember that I did not like was candy that looked like caramels but it did not taste like caramel. Most of the time you knew these sat for like a couple of years because they were hard. They were also off brand or maybe bought in bulk. Good caramels are tasty but these were hideous.
The worst "treat" (or was it "trick"?) I ever got was last year. I'd forgotten it was Halloween. Not only did I not have anything in, I was skint...it was a really rough time in my life because I really didn't have any money for food even.. Anyway, guisers came to my door and I answered (because I'd forgotten it was Halloween, or I'd have turned the lights out and shut the curtains, seeing as I didn't have any money to give them either). I apologised for having nothing and they said it was fine, but returned later to pelt my house with eggs. Thanks kids! They did several of my neighbours houses the same way. I know who they are but their parents denied it was them. They were seen buying the eggs in the local supermarket that day a year ago.
