When youre buying treats to pass out on Halloween, you may want to skip over the candy corn. While the iconic tri-colored morsels have become a symbol of the spooky October holiday, it turns out that its pretty polarizing, and has a lot of haters. CandyStore.com surveyed 40,000 of their own customers while also factoring in data from numerous lists from websites like BuzzFeed, Business Insider, the Huffington Post and Bon Appétit.
Candy from those lists that got named as the absolute best or worst would receive 10 points, while those that were only the 10th best or worst would get 1 point.
While there were plenty of contenders for peoples least favorite Halloween treat, candy corn beat them all out including last years winner Circus Peanuts, which slipped to the no. 2 spot.
Although a lot of people might not be into it, the sweet is still a favorite in a handful of states. Rounding out the list of least favorites were Bit-O-Honey, Good & Plenty, licorice, Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, Necco Wafers, wax Coke bottles, Peanut Butter Kisses and Circus Peanuts.
