The Five Halloween Candies You Need To Stop Complaining About
|Flickr user jelene|
Those candies that are located on the bottom shelf gathering dust at the Circle K, though, are sometimes pretty good. Here are five of the ones that deserve a place in your neighbors' kids pumpkins and pillowcases. (You're not really giving out raisins and nickels and those random strawberry-flavored hard candies--or, worse yet, candy corn--are you?)
5. Now and Laters
You ever notice that you get that acid aftertaste after you eat a pack of Starburst? Well, Now and Laters, for all that they're the candy of choice for cheap bastards who give you exactly one of them, are just like Starburst, except without that cotton mouth that follows.
So many of the old-fashioned candy bars are being swept out by newer candy bars that are pretty much the same thing. A Heath bar, for example, is just a Skor bar without that Scandinavian name. ("And then Skor swung his mighty crispy toffee, center, Buttarr...") Well, Butterfinger isn't like any of them, and it's a crunchy butter-flavored bar that doesn't break your teeth. Well done!
