So it”s been a few days since the big event. You”re dreading your next trip to the dentist and that big ol” bowl of sugary treats is starting to get a little low. It”s at the point where you”re sifting through all the crappy candy to get to the good stuff — Kit Kats, Reeses, Snickers, M&Ms, Twix .. the list goes on and on. But what are these unloved sweets that always seem to end up in our trick-or-treat scavenges each year? Here are a few offenders:
INDIVIDUALLY-WRAPPED BUBBLE GUM
Seriously. I enjoy the idea of these individually wrapped pieces of gum, but my teeth seem to think otherwise. And if you can actually get a bite into them, they stick to your molars and practically perform an extraction when you attempt to chew it. Who needs a dentist? Just pick yourself up a tub of these bad boys next time you need to pull a tooth.
Why? These just weird me out. Maybe it would be a different thing if they were Jelly Belly brand (because those are DELICIOUS) but these generic jellybeans just don”t fit the bill for me. Not to mention — why aren”t they in little baggies? Loose jellybeans are GROSS. Please do yourself a favor and don”t even try. I did once, and I regret to inform you that it was the stalest piece of candy I have ever encountered. Never again!
Okay, honestly. There are so many types of M&M knockoffs, but I just don”t understand these Sixlets candies. And they don”t taste anything like real chocolate. I try being optimistic, but every year I am let down. I think even a color change would help this poor candy out! They”re one of those chocolates that seem to linger around until next July ..
The idea of these are GREAT. But the reality? Ehhh .. not so much. If you”re into getting wax all up in your teeth, be my guest — but I had enough of the wax:teeth ratio when I had braces back in middle school. Not to mention, the liquid is so .. odd. It”s almost like water but a little thicker, and just loaded with sugar and strange flavoring. Not my cup of tea.
What other trick-or-treat candies never seem to get eaten at your house?
