Disappointing Candy? It sounds like an Oxymoron!
I was reading an article online called "The 10 Most Disappointing Treats for Trick-or-Treaters".
This is what they put as the top ten and I completely agree!
3. Candy Corn
4. Smarties and Necco Wafers
5. Dum Dum Lollipops
7. Tootsie Rolls
8. Miscellaneous, Wrapped Hard Candies
9. Laffy Taffy
10. Anything Fun-Sized
So as I was going down the list, I kept saying YES YES YES! This is so true, but the sad thing, that is what most people receive in the Trick or Treating bags. Who wants a toothbrush on Halloween? I don't even like getting one from my dentist on the my check-ups. Raisins are disgusting to begin with. I have never heard of them being a delicacy and can't even imagine anyone having a craving for them. Grapes should be left alone and not messed with. Candy Corn, need I say more. In the article he states, "The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away." This statement is so true. I think they should have added Whoppers to this list, I am not a fan of a fake chalky milkshake flavored ball. I don't think anyone should be. Ice Cream needs to be in its full form, cold and all. I guess I shouldn't bother because my trick r' treating days are over. But I am speaking up for the sake of kids who have cavities not because of this nonsense candy but because of the good kind like a King Size Snickers or Twizzlers. So I have come to the conclusion that candy is disappointing, as sad as that sounds, but life does go on.
