The Five Worst Halloween Candies

Trick-or-treating as a kid was one of the most wildly exciting times of the year. Forget Christmas -- that was all about getting pajamas from Grandma underneath the Christmas tree. Forget St. Patrick's Day, because beer was for grownups. 


You could even forget about Easter, because being dragged to Sunday Mass at 5 a.m. was the worst kind of hell. It was all about Halloween.
