Halloween is right around the corner. And that means, it’s candy time! Candy bars can be a jolt of pure sugary, chocolatey joy to children and adults alike. They can stave off our hunger, temporarily make us forget our woes and make it an absolute joy to watch a good film (okay, just the first trailer) at your local movie theater. But what about candy bars that are made with crappy ingredients or are just cheap rip-offs of better ones?
These are the worst candy bars out there. Don’t buy them for yourself to snack on. Don’t give them to unsuspecting trick-or-treaters.
CaramelloI don’t know about you, but I don’t particularly enjoy a candy bar whose contents can be poured out. Liquid caramel is for ice cream sundaes, period.
Mr. GoodbarI’m not really sure why they allow the peanuts to become stale before adding them into perfectly good milk chocolate, but they do. If you prefer the taste of packing peanuts over real ones, this is your jam.
Milky WayThere’s nothing inherently wrong with caramel and nougat enrobed in milk chocolate, but all I can think of is that it’s really just a Snickers bar without balls. Or in this case, nuts.
Hershey’s Cookies & CreamIf you like this then your brain has simply been tricked by how insanely sweet it is. This wax-textured candy tastes like chemicals that have been mixed with chocolate rust.
PaydayWho in their right mind would opt for a candy bar that is bereft of its very lifeblood - chocolate? Paydays are the disappointing son of the candy bar world.
Oh Henry!Chocolate, peanuts and caramel? That sounds familiar. Oh right, it’s a Snickers. Except Snickers does what the idiotically titled Oh Henry! does a thousand times better. If there were a blind taste test between the two, someone would get slapped.

Heath BarIf you like the taste of shrapnel disguised as diabetes, this is your favorite candy bar.
Sour SkittlesI know, I know; it’s candy, not a candy bar. But this needs to be said for safety reasons: Sour Skittles might taste okay at first, but if you eat too many you run the risk of going into 4th degree burn territory. Stay safe.
5th AvenueThis candy bar was created in 1936. It also happens to taste as stale as if every one sold since then has been from the same 80-year-old batch. Just get a Butterfinger.
