The whole idea of eating candy is that it is supposed to taste good. It certainly provides no nutritional value.
But some manufacturers decide to make candy that tastes icky.
These are their stories.

Thrills. Might be just Canadians who will know these, at least the new marketing campaign is truthful.

The second thing I thought of.



My sister's friend went to Australia once and brought these back. Apparently musk is a flavour down there. I don't understand why anyone thought that was a good idea.

FYI, if someone says, "Anyone want a life saver? They're from Australia.", you should find out what flavour they are, instead of assuming it's bubble gum or something.

White Chocolate

WTF? It's chocolate, with the chocolate removed! Why don't you just stir a few tablespoons of sugar into a glass of milk instead?

Salmiakki Candy.

My contribution to this list.

I have tried this candy ONCE. it is a salty version of black licorice. I have never tasted anything nastier in the candy world.

One of my friends told me it tasted like.....well, something masculine. And salty. I took her word for it.

Any and all chocolate that is so cheaply made that you can feel the grit of sugar between your teeth while eating it. Sends a shiver down my spine!!!!

Mostly a memory of the cheap Easter bunnies we used to get. Eeck!

Christmas Ribbon Candy - Beautiful to marvel at but the melange of conflicting flavors was annoying to taste. Even worse was the fact the pieces of ribbon candy would bond to each other. This had the effect that when you tried to take single piece you lifted the entire lot of candy ribbon from the bowl.

Thank god it was seasonal, although my aunt still had residual inventory during Easter visits.

One day, while driving my son home from school, we passed by a new market-type store with a sign that said "Fine European Food." I used to live in Boston and would frequently drop in a place in Harvard Square that was an absolute AMUSEMENT PARK of European food wonders. Did all my Christmas shopping there. Anyway, I thought this might be a similar place so I just had to stop and introduce my son's taste buds to some of the wonders of the Old World, because in rural Maine, there just ain't much that you'd call, say, "Continental".

So we go in. There's not much of a selection and it seems that everything is from one or another of the Eastern European nations. Not much that's really exciting me, but on one wall there's a bunch of "bulk" containers of candy that you can fill a bag with. They all are wrapped in brightly colored foil and seem to be a sort of filled chocolates. I explain to my son how much he's going to enjoy the exquisite, sublime taste of REAL European chocolate, compared to the "3 Musketeers" blandness he's been suffering through. Though I can't read any labels and the clerk speaks no English, I figure, "All the flavors must be good. How can you screw up chocolates?" and I fill a bag up with a variety of choices.

On the way home, we decide to open them up and indulge. I open up a beautiful golden yellow wrapper and my son unwraps a nice blue one. The chocolate is dark and rich looking and I eagerly take my first bite . . . and immediately gag.

"Dad! This candy tastes like MOTOR OIL!" my son yelps from the back seat, while spitting a half-chewed glob out his window so it smears brown and white ooze across my side panel.

Later, at home, we tentatively tried small bites of a few other flavors, but they were all the same. Putrid. By design.

I still don't know what these were and I pity those who grew up in Eastern Europe and probably never got a nice Kit Kat bar now and again. But now, every day we drive home from school and pass the store and I tease my son by saying "Time for some candy! Let's pull over!"

To which he still replies, "Nooooooooooooooooo!"

I guess we really do belong in rural Maine!

Root Beer Barrels are hard, root beer flavored candies in the shape of a barrel.

Except they don't taste like root beer and have no fizz.

Hated getting these for Halloween.gulp

Many of those old gum brands that you used to see a lot at Halloween. Not the regular stick gum, nor the candy-coated gumballs or Chicklets, nor even the ones that come as "cubes" in a package. I mean the ones that came as an approximately 3/4" cylinder of gum, individually wrapped in wax paper, pink, lightly dusted with sugar, having such brand names as "Pal", "Swell", and "Double Bubble".

Some of them ("Swell" in particular, IIRC), would liquefy if you chewed them long enough - turning into a truly disgusting substance - no longer chewy like gum, but more like Elmer's Glue in both texture and flavor. Suddenly, and without warning, you'd have this paste-like glop in your mouth that couldn't simply be spit out - you had to rinse it out of your mouth to get rid of it.

This Danish (although I 1st had it in Montreal and then Iceland) liquorice hard candy is covered with a incredibly potent salt/pepper powder that'll make you wince in pain! The hard core isn't worth the "bite" either...

These European Nordic types sure do like pain.

I have no idea how these taste, and I have absolutely no interest in finding out.

Not that these candies are unnecessarily bad themselves or more harmful than other candies but candy cigarettes and bubblegum cigars don't really establish the right model for adult behavior.

I actually liked the taste of both the candies and gums.
