As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "only 'name candy,' please."

Not all candy is created equal. In the candy caste system, some treats are more deserving than others when it comes to securing a place in Halloween treat bags. Here are ten candies that should almost certainly be excluded:

10. Green Tea Kit Kats. Why did this happen? One word: Japan. Why has this continued? Beats the sh*t out of me.

Green Tea Kit Kats don't even look good.

I hate concrete bubble gum, jaw breakers and fire balls. Total let down. Wasted time walking door to door. And sprees. Hate them.

That's a perfect list, IMO. You must do this at Easter time, too because I have a worst candy for Easter.

My daughter and her team will be handing out White ribbons to wear in the month of November for Adoption Awareness month along with candy treat sacks

I used to buy Circus Peanuts wholesale from the manufacturer after their spring production run. the peanuts were AMAZING!

Whatever. More circus peanuts for the rest of us. I want to see a green tea KitKat just because. Not sure I want to eat one, but I'd like to see one.

No, you're not kidding, and neither are the rest of us when we agree with you.

It has to be Brach's. Cheap candy corn is an abomination.

Honestly, I thought those Circus Peanuts were a gag, like coal/sticks in a Christmas stocking. Who hates kids this much?

I'd rather just rent a candy/snack vending machine for the holiday and place that heavy sucker right in my front door. Let them purchase their own treats :-P

I actually think I will give out circus peanuts, since I don't really give a crap about trick-or-treaters.

I agree with everything except the white chocolate Reese's and Now and Laters. If you eat a Now and Later right the concept is good. Just let them stay in your mouth and dissolve and then chew them. Hence the "Now and Later" name.

Bridget Batson Too many things in this caption to not tag you! ;)

SWEET TARTS. I agree with everything else, except Fruit Punch Now and Laters are actually kind of good-ish. If that is not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.

I can't believe so many people hate candy corn. I guess they've never had "fresh" candy corn, the oh-so-chewy delicious sugar pellets.

I totally agree, Joanna, I was always afraid i would lose a filling! But that was part of the game how to eat them without losing a filling or break a tooth!

OMG! What is wrong with the today's youth. 5 out of the 10 are freaking thebomb.com

Thanks, Jamie. As for jujubes, how do you enjoy them when your consumption experience is dominated by picking them out of your teeth?

Who did this list !?! My kids like runts, now and laters, wax bottles, and dots. Where are the Red Hots! That's gross!

Runts are fine; it's candy corn that's uber disgusting, and smart-e's -- who decided eating chalk was a good idea?

Also, if you feel absolutely compelled to give out religious tracts to trick or treaters, remember it gives the kids a bad impression of Jesus if there's no candy with it. I'm kidding, but not really.

I agree with Scarlette! White Chocolate Reese's are fantastic!

I love white chocolate, so I have to respectfully disagree on the Reese's peanut butter cup choice. White chocolate is a gift from the culinary gods.

Candy corn is awesome!! But just the regular candy corn not the crazy fruit flavored ones starburst came up with...

Wait, How come I have not tasted a green tea kit kat yet! Send them my way!

@MadMac The witch in Hansel and Gretel! Or maybe she loves them so much, she eats them. It's a fine line.

Now hold on. I haven't eaten Red Hots in like 30 years but I must insist they are: a) wonderful; b) should NOT be on this list; c) probably why I gave up on candy in favor of smokes 30 years ago. That's not quite the ringing endorsement I intended. o_O Never mind.

@gossamersixteen Well, the people at TUMS certainly seem okay with promoting the consumption of chalk.  I guess I am the only person on the planet left who likes candy corn.

@Becci Himes Only in Texas. Do these proselytizers realize Halloween has its origins in paganism?

@Miriam Urrabazo I actually think the Starburst candy corn is a welcome innovation.

So does Christmas and Easter. Don't tell them. It'll only hurt their feelings and then they'll shoot you. In Jesus' name, of course.

Your job requires you to eat my sister's cooking?! You need a raise. And, probably, a portable stomach pump.
