There are a lot of gross candies in this world. A lot. I didn’t realize the level of grossness that candy has sunk to. We at Candy Addict decided to compile a list of the Top 10 grossest candy we could find. We searched high and low for gross candy and came up with a long list. We then each ranked the grossness of each and compiled our results to bring you the Top 10.
These aren’t gross flavors of candy (like black licorice or peach), but gross in their appearance or what they are trying to represent/simulate. Gummi worms and snakes may have frightened the kids of yesteryear, but today’s kids get some serious grossness from things like candy poop, vomit, snot, bugs, and ear wax.
There is no doubt that your Top 10 list of gross candy would be different than ours. You may think bugs are grosser than snot or ear wax. We may not. It was interesting just to see the differences in how the three of us at Candy Addict ranked the candy. For reference, we’ll provide a links page at the end so you can buy any of the items we mention – just in case you really want to.
So, enough with the introduction, let’s get to the Top 10 Grossest Candies.
Grossest Candy #10 – White Chocolate Maggots
Why are these so gross? I think it’s because they are white and therefore actually look like maggots – and maggots are gross. Really gross. I get the willies just thinking about maggots and the rotting flesh/garbage/food they go along with. Plus, these are made of white chocolate, which is gross too.
Grossest Candy #9 – Hose Nose
This is a candy dispenser that looks like a nose that you strap to your face. It oozes candy slime and they encourage you to stick out your tongue and catch the drips from the nose. Some of the slogans: “It’snot what you think”, “candy slime filled”, “drippy”, and “catch it on your tongue”. Yes, snot is gross and this candy encourages you to eat candy snot.
Grossest Candy #8 – Sour Flush Candy
The candy in this is nothing special – it’s powdered candy (like Pixy Stix) and a lollipop. It’s all about the presentation though. The powdered candy comes in a realistic plastic toilet and the lollipop is flat on the end so it looks like a toilet plunger. Lick the plunger then dip it into the toilet to get some candy on it. Yum!
