The website has released its annual list of the worst Halloween candies, which is voted on by more than 15,000 of its customers.

The Worst Halloween Candy For 2022: 

1. Circus Peanuts:  They've overtaken Candy Corn as the #1 worst this year, even though it's hard to imagine anyone actually handing out Circus Peanuts.

2. Candy Corn: Last year's #1.

3. Peanut Butter Kisses: Also #3 last year. Despite the name, they're not Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but the generic version.

4. Necco Wafers: Up one spot from #5 last year.

5. Wax Coke Bottles: Up one spot from #6 last year. Yes, they still exist.

6. Smarties: Down two spots from #4 last year.

7. Mary Janes: Also #7 last year. They're a chewy peanut butter and molasses taffy-type candy.

8. Tootsie Rolls: Also #8 last year. This is for both regular Tootsie Rolls, and those flavored ones, which may be more or less appealing.

9. Black Licorice: Up one spot from #10 last year.

10. Good & Plenty: Down one spot from #9 last year. They're pretty much licorice, so it makes sense that they're back-to-back.
