The 15 Craziest Candies Ever

By Olivia Putnal

Halloween is right around the corner, which means one thing: candy! Besides the standard sugary fare (think candy corn and bite-size bars), over the years there has been an onslaught of gross-out candy concepts created for this spooky holiday. WD set out to find the most disturbing of the bunch, from past and present, and discovered the 15 out-of-the-ordinary treats (if we can even call them treats) below. See the grossest of the gross, but beware-they may make you lose your appetite.

Box of Boogers

You can tell by the name that this box of candy is going to be pretty disturbing. With three flavors (Snottermelon, Sour Green Boogy and Lemon Loogy), the gummy snacks boast a consistency similar to snot and have a sweet-and-salty flavor. Photo courtesy of BaronBob.com.


Bacon Beans

We like bacon with our pancakes, but aren't so sure we would enjoy the cured pork flavor in jelly bean form. Claiming to be "better for your arteries," these bite-size candies come in bacon strip-shaped tins and taste just like the popular breakfast meat-only with less grease and more sugar.

Porky Pooper!

OK, this is by far one of the grossest concepts out there, because, really, eating brown candy out of a pig's bottom isn't our idea of a sweet treat. The four-inch plastic pig dumps out brown jelly beans after you swing his head to the side and fill his tummy with the candies. Photo courtesy of CandyWarehouse.com.


Sour Flush Candy

Although we love that this confection combines Fun Dip-esque powdered candy with a lollipop, the fact that the lollipop is an "edible plunger" and the sugary powder is supposed to be toilet water definitely kills the appeal. If you can stomach it, take a dip into the green apple, raspberry or watermelon flavors, but don't forget to put the toilet seat down after you're finished. Photo courtesy of Stupid.com.


Hose Nose

Another candy inspired by the nasal area, Hose Nose is giant plastic nose that you strap onto your face so that the liquid candy can ooze out onto your tongue. Um, gross. Though Kandy Kastle, the makers behind this snot-inspired sweet, specializes in "fun loving, interactive candy products," the Hose Nose evidently didn't make the cut because it was discontinued about two years ago-no surprise there!

White Chocolate Maggots

Unfortunately, our favorite form of chocolate has been ruined with the creation of this candy. While they aren't actual maggots (obviously), the mere fact that they look and feel like them completely ruins the otherwise delicious white chocolate flavor. The candies come in a tin similar to a fisherman's worm container-maintaining the grossness factor even in the packaging. Photo courtesy of BigFatBalloons.co.uk.


Kandy Teef

Despite the funny name, this is another exceptionally unpleasant idea for a sweet treat. Insert these fake teeth into your mouth (much like you would dentures) and you are able to eat both the rotting teeth and the unhealthy gums; the entire product is edible and dissolves into sweet candy as you chomp down.

Zit Poppers

We really can't believe there is such a thing as candy that looks like a pimple, but here it is! Zit Poppers are soft and gummy, and when squeezed, a gooey red substance oozes out, much like when you pop a zit. Advertised as "plump and ripe," they come in strawberry and watermelon flavors-just right for the popping! Photo courtesy of CandyWarehouse.com.


Harry Potter Cockroach Clusters

We pretty much love everything Harry Potter, but these cockroaches push the limit (no wonder they've been "discontinued by the manufacturer"). With a gummy belly and a hard crunchy shell, these candy creatures are just too eerily similar to real insects for us. Photo courtesy of CandyWarehouse.com.


Ear Wax Candy

With a plastic container shaped like a human ear, Ear Wax Candy is supposed to look like earwax, but is actually a fruit-flavored gel. In addition to this unusual holder, you also get a cotton swab-inspired device for gathering and eating the candy earwax. Now that is truly disgusting! Photo courtesy of BookofJoe.com.


Gummy Boo Boos

Remember when you were a kid and a bandage made everything better when you fell and scraped your knee? Well, now those handy first-aid helpers come in candy form. Open up a package of Gummy Boos Boos and you will find an edible bandage complete with a bloody-looking scab. Ew. Photo courtesy of CandyWarehouse.com.


Lolli-Pop-Eyes

We don't think that when bubblegum was first invented anyone ever imagined how many shapes, sizes and flavors this popular candy would eventually come in. And we are pretty surprised by this particular gumball. Lolli-Pop-Eyes are exactly what they sound like-lollipops that look like eyeballs and use bubblegum for the pupils.

Pork Chocs

Pork rinds (deep-fried pig skin) are already an interesting culinary concept, but add some chocolate glaze to them and you have a concoction that both intrigued and frightened us. Available in milk, dark or white chocolate varieties, not only is this snack a heart attack waiting to happen, but covering pork in chocolate seems just plain wrong.

Bag O' Blood

Giving blood is no walk in the park, so we aren't certain why anyone would want to be reminded of that experience while also satisfying a sweet tooth. The liquidized candy is sour watermelon flavor and pours out like, well, blood-making this an appropriate treat for a Halloween party only. Photo courtesy of OrientalTrading.com.


Barf Bags

All right, if there is a line between appropriate and inappropriate candy, these vomit-themed treats have definitely crossed it. Each package of Barf Bags is filled with a mix of gummy and liquid candy in orange flavor that is made to look like somebody lost his lunch. We just can't understand why this would be the least bit appealing. Photo courtesy of OrientalTrading.com.
