Everyone has their candy preferences, and these five candies are still very controversial to many on whether they belong on this list or not. Brace yourself for a daring exploration of the grossest candies that have sparked lively debates among candy enthusiasts.

  1. Almond Joy:

Almond Joy bars are a combination of coconut, almonds, and milk chocolate. The texture of these are very off-putting mixed with the coconut. Almond Joy’s polarizing nature places it on the top of the list as the grossest candy.

  1. Licorice:

Licorice is a classic candy that has a very strong smell. Whether it’s the traditional black licorice or the red licorice, these seem to be an acquired taste. The smell makes it one of the grossest candies for those of us that don’t have that type of acquired taste. 

  1. Tootsie Rolls:

Tootsie Rolls have been around forever, but they also have their fair share of dislikes. The chewy texture and cocoa-infused flavor can be deceiving. It has an artificial taste and will get stuck in your teeth. This can make Tootsie Rolls one of the grossest candies for those of us trying to keep ourselves from losing a tooth trying to take it out from between our teeth.

  1. Good & Plenty:

The licorice-flavored shell makes these candies super strange tasting. For licorice lovers, this one is right up your alley. Since this candy includes licorice, it will be staying in the grossest candy list.

  1. Peeps:

Peeps include marshmallows mixed with some type of artificial taste. The texture is strange and these just honestly do not taste good. The mix of sugar with marshmallow is a strange concoction for sure, but nevertheless is on the list for being one of the grossest candies. 


While some may disagree, others agree for these to be among the grossest candies in existence. Ultimately, it’s either you love them or you don’t.
