Circus Peanuts dethroned by candy corn as worst Halloween candy

Steven Adams

Which candy is the most disappointing to find in your trick-or-treat bag? The folks at have done the research and this year there’s a new name at the top (or bottom?) of the list.

Those yellow, orange and white fangs of sugar known as candy corns have claimed the title of most despised treat, according to the blog.

The team started with the rankings already done by others such as BuzzFeed and Huffington Post.

Then they polled 30,000 customers.

The result showed the reigning Circus Peanuts knocked out of worst place by candy corns.

The spongy peanuts held the number two spot with Peanut Butter Kisses taking third.

Wax Cola Bottles ranked fourth and Necco Wafers scored fifth.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
