Grossest Candy
(logo by HelloMyLogo)

Since our gross candy category is such a hit, we decided to compile a list of the grossest candy we could find and present it to you in Top 10 format (counting down from 10 to 1). So, here it is, the Top 10 Grossest Candies. It was fun to compile and write the list – we hope you have fun reading it.

    I frequent a joke shop in Boston where they sell fake poops, but not edible poops. Poop candy — a new low.

    I was getting a CPU cap warning all morning from your host when I visited your site. I had the same thing happen to me (but without being boing-boinged or anything). My host tried to get me to switch over to dedicated servers … as if I had the traffic or income to warrant that!

    Suffice to say I switched hosts after that.

    RESPONSE: Yep. I figured out why I was getting a CPU cap and I put a fix in place. I’ll be blogging about that on my personal blog tonight. And I actually already bought hosting elsewhere, just have to move. :)

    Hey there! Candy shop employee from Houston, TX here, and I love your blog! I was pointed here by boingboing, and now it is on my daily feed reader.

    Thanks for such a neat blog!

    RESPONSE: Awesome! Glad to have you as a reader! Tell all your candy-addicted friends! :)

    I couldn’t enjoy the article because of the banners underneath each title. Ridiculas! It would also be nice to have pics of the candy.

    Try Durian candy, from Thailand. They love it, but to Western tastes, it is about the most horrible candy around. No gimmicks like you list here, just plain horrible if you didn’t grow up in the culture.

    Look up Durian fruit and you will find alternating opinions…one says “sewer”, while the other says “addictive”. Let’s just say that I found the candy to be just about the worst thing I ever tasted.

    RESPONSE: This was a list of the grossest PRESENTATION of candy, not grossest tasting. Grossest tasting will be another time :) Funny – I just happen to stumble on Durian a few weeks ago while browsing Wikipedia. Sounds awfuland candy made from it? YUCK!

    How about CRICKET LICKETS or CHOCOLATE COVER ANTS eeuuww thats gross

    RESPONSE: Covered in the list at #2 :) (I acually have some to review – look for the review soon)

    John M. Burt says:

    We have a few of these ourselves. The plastic nose full of candy S.N.O.T. (Super-Nauseating Obnoxious Treat) is our “favorite”.

    I’m a little disappointed that your list only included candies that were intended to be gross / disgusting / offensive. I remember being grossed out by a plastic tooth full of bubble gum, with its seeming implication, “Keep on chewing gum, and you’ll be looking at your OWN molars outside your mouth, kid!”

    Jasper Brown says:

    In regards to “flesh-colored” in #3 (Ear Wax Candy): What color is that? Your flesh color or mine?

    One of the crayons in the Crayola box used to be “flesh” — fortunately, they did away with it, since there isn’t just one flesh color. (Actually, I don’t know if _anyone_ has a flesh color that matches that crayon, anyway.)

    RESPONSE: Any flesh color would do. Pink just doesn’t do it for me :)

    CB says:

    Ok…I’m throwing this out because I am in disgust over these jelly beans. I love jelly beans (Jelly Belly), but come on vomit…booger??? If you are inventing these things how do they know what they taste like to make them????? If you eat other jelly beans they are pretty true to taste, let’s hope these aren’t, either way I’m not trying them.

    RESPONSE: You probably aren’t their target market. :) And yes, they taste like what they say they do. They’re actually quite fun to try.

    Hey Brian! I logged on to AOL this morning and followed a link on their main pages to the Slashfood article about your top 10 here. Congrats on being noticed by everyone and their dog! Did you ever think your humble (awesome!) candy blog would get so much attention? Good work here.

    RESPONSE: SWEET! I saw more traffic but couldn’t figure out why it was coming
    from that oldish article from slashfood! THANKS!!!!

    Those Cockroach Clusters are nasty tasting too (should Monty Python sue them for stealing the name??). The Fear Factor Gummy Pizzas are fairly gross tasting too.

    Bug_Eater says:

    Yeah, um…Candy with Real bugs isn’t all that bad. It is actually good. :) I have had tons of real bugs. Here’s a list!
    Lolli Pops- Crickets, Grasshoppers, and a Catterpiller
    Chocolate Covered- Ants(harmless and dead)
    Live- Once when I was like 2 I ate a worm. XD

    My mom said that when she was in around 4th grade her teacher had them make worm cookies. To cleanse the worms they had them eat cotton so it would clean the dirt out of their insides.XD

    That would be it…if you want to get together and eat bugs sometime I’ll give the police your name and you’ll go to jail for being an online predator. XD XD XD

    Have a nice day. :)

    shawn says:

    how about ballsack blood? i think thats the worse candy. it looks like a males testicles so the outside nutsack is like a chewy gummy stuff and when you bite the ballsack like koolaid comes out and the best part is you get two rubber bouncy balls–the kind you used to buy in the quarter machines at safeway that are trapped in the ball sack that are greyish in color.i think i seen em for 3.99 and you get it in a box and it wrapped in what looks like barbie doll ken boxers. i have only seen them in the stores during halloween.

    I believe the makers of these candy types are completly revoulting and teaching children wrong habits. This is teaching them unhealthy habits in the form of sweet treats. This is true scam

    *Julia* says:

    I definatly agree that the vomit berniebots should be first. I got a box for my birthday one year, and i popped one in my mouth, and got blueberry! yum! I figured the rest would be good also, so i popped another one in my mouth without looking at the key to figure out which one it was. VOMIT. YUCK! I actually vommited after i ate it. i chewed it up, swallowed, then threw up. I’m sure no bug candy or scab bandaid could do that to me, so if you ever chance your list, the bernie bots DEFINETLY has to be #1!

    dennis says:

    Actually, I think scorpions are part of the Arachnid family (spider family), so I think they really are bugs.

    Not like anyone cares or anything, but I’m just lettin’ you know.

    heather says:

    i had a cricket lollipop once. my dad used to make them for a bug place….its actually only the shells most of the time…and i could never licklollys long enough to get down to it…so it was actually difficult to notice that it was there. because both were crunchy. but a worms just going to far i sappose…they dont have shells.

    Emma says:

    well, about the Fear Factor candy…
    when I was at Universal Studios, I noticed these candies. I know these wouldn’t make the list because it’s not candy, but they have flavored grasshoppers. Real /dead/ grasshoppers flavored like potato chips. I actually bought a package of Sour cream and Onion ones.

    Lee says:

    I just read the gross candy list and some of those candies are very gross. For the Bertie Bott’s Every Flavored Beans, Horse Radish should definitly be added, I don’t know if you’ve ever tried it but it’s the only bean to actually make me throw up. What’s worse is that if the jelly beans get kinda melted horse radish flavor looks like the multicolored tuti fruti so I occasionally bite down hoping for a good flavor when…ehhwwgg just gross thinking about. Ginseng candies are really awful to me as well even though they look and smell good, my friend loves them…

    Cockroach Cluster is a reference to the Monty Python “Crunchy Frog” sketch, featuring the Wizzo Quality Assortment of chocolates. Flavors include:
    Crunchy Frog
    Ram’s Bladder Cup
    Anthrax Ripple
    Cockroach Cluster
    Spring Surprise
    and Cherry Fondue (this is extremely nasty, but they can’t be prosecuted for that)

    I have tried many of these candies and they are rather good, i tried the candied cricket at a museum and found it to be quite nice. kind of like a candied sunflower seed. and the jelly beans are good sans the vomit, egg and ear wax flavour which taste horrible.

    Still, pretty amazing list, though. I had never heard of many of these candies before; on my next visit to the US I’ll have to stock up..:)

    Oh and thanx for your review on the nasty Jelly Bean-flavours; I definitely will NOT be eaten the ones laying in my cupboard now!

    Ravenclaw's most loyal pupel says:

    i think that the band-aid candy is the most clever candy invention i’ve seen in my life. i would do almost anything to have some, but the problem is that i don’t know to get it since it isn’t at Wal-Mart or Kroger’s.

  104. 104
    Ravenclaw's most loyal pupel says:

    my TOP favorite GROSSEST candy is the BERTIE BOTT’S EVERY FLAVORED BEANS. i have try them before and they are the absolute nastyest “so called” candy ever i gave some VOMIT flavored ones to 7 of my best friends (not knowing how gross they were of course) and they got mad at me and haven’t talked to me ever since. it wasn’t funny at the time, but when you look back at it, it’s hilarious!

  105. 105
    Ravenclaw's most loyal pupel says:

    oh yeah a reminder about the Bertie bott’s every flavor beans, the wood shaving ones are the best in the box. they not very good but they are better than the other ones.
