Yuck! Here A The Top 5 Nastiest Halloween Candies Killeen, Texas Should Avoid
As all of our kids get ready for Halloween in Killeen, Texas. I think we all need to talk about a few things that are important before trick-or-treating.
First things first: I think it’s extremely important that the parents check their children’s bags for anything that can harm them at the end of the night. Even if there's nothing nefarious dropped in their bag, there could be something they're allergic to, or something that wouldn't be safe to eat because the packaging was damaged.
We also need to make sure that our children are using the buddy system and trick-or-treating with either a group of friends or with a parent at all times.
Also, make sure your kids aren't wandering into or walking down the middle of the road, and that some part of their getup is bright, glowing, flashing, or reflective so people (drivers in particular) can see them.
Now For the Kicker
Last but not least, let’s keep an eye out on the disgusting, disrespectful candy that people decide to put in our children’s bags.
Let’s be honest, parents - we’re going to eat the candy too, and the last thing I want to munch on is candy corn!
If you’re passing out candy this year, do us all a favor in Central Texas and buy the kind of candy we all love. If you’re not exactly sure what to avoid, here are the top five nastiest Halloween candies of all time!
(Apologies to anyone who likes these, but also...shame on you.)
TOP 5 NASTIEST HALLOWEEN CANDIES
Let’s go ahead and start this list off with the OG of Halloween candy: Candy Corn. I sincerely believe no one under the age of 70 likes this stuff. I spoke with a group of experts (my kids and their friends), and said, "Candy corn looks like Dracula's teeth." That's being generous if you ask me. They wanted no part of it, and I don't either.
The next candy that I will not tolerate this holiday will have to be licorice. I cannot stand the taste of the black licorice, or the black jellybeans for that matter. It’s disgusting, and no one in their right mind should try to talk me out of that.
This one's a favorite of my father's, and some people consider it an "oldie, but goodie". I'd call it a "no goodie, good riddance". Personally, I can't stand the stuff. This weird toffee candy seems to lock up your jaw as you chew it, and it's just not great tasting at all. Don't drop this in any bag that isn't a trash bag.
PEANUT BUTTER KISSES
This one's name is deceptively delicious. How could you mess up peanut butter kisses? Well, they found a way, and if you think these will taste great based on the name alone, you're in for a world of disappointment. These things taste like plastic peanut butter misses.
Last but not least, fruit! C'mon. Kids wait all year long for this night of sugar rush goodness, and you're going to throw an apple or a bunch of raisins in their bag? Nobody wants fruit in their Halloween haul unless it's in gummi or roll-up form. Halloween central Texas be safe!
If you take my advice and avoid these treats, I feel like everybody will have a happy Halloween. You're also far less likely to find yourself cleaning egg yolks and TP off your house on November 1st.
