We’ve done a top 10 candy post before, but we’ve never broken it down to this level, and it needs to be done.
No longer can we simply present the name of a candy and say it is our favorite, unless we are going to clarify which flavor we are talking about.
For example, it doesn’t make sense for us to say we love Runts, when what we actually love are the purple and pink pieces (while hating the bananas, oranges and limes).
Why am I writing as if there is more than one of me at the keyboard?
Anywhoo…on to the top ten candy flavors of all time (in no particular order):
1) Big League Chew GRAPE
2) Sour Skittles CHERRY
3) Sour Skittles GRAPE
4) Sour Patch Kids RED (what is that, strawberry or cherry?)
5) Laffy Taffy STRAWBERRY
6) Laffy Taffy GRAPE
7) Now N Laters GRAPE
8) Now N Laters CHERRY
9) Swedish Fish GRAPE (no longer in production – trust me, I contacted the company)
10) Nerds STRAWBERRY
Now for a brief list of candy flavors so disgusting most other countries use them as fertilizer, or sift from their tastier counterparts before putting them in septic tanks:
– Black Licorice (including those pink and white pill-shaped things that hide black licorice inside)
– Banana Runts (like eating a curved Calormene scimitar)
– Lemon Sour Patch Kids (redundant?)
– Banana Laffy Taffy (just plain gross)
I expect today’s comments section to be filled with complete agreement, as this is the best candy list every compiled.
