Grossest Halloween candies of all time

Bon Appetit

Overindulging in Halloween candy is bound to make anyone nauseous. Why not skip the teeth-rotting middleman and turn your stomach before you eat a thing? These ten repugnant candies should do the trick-or-treat.

1. Dracula Drool

This vile vial gets bonus gross-out points for its graphic name. It's not just blood, it's hemoglobin-stained saliva that dripped off the Count's slobbering fangs.

2. Vampire Hair

Candy hair would have made this list on its own; so would candy vampires. The combination in a flossy candy that explodes on your tongue puts it at No. 2. Also noteworthy is the revelation that Marge Simpson is indeed a vampire.

3. Forkz Candy Eyeballs

Who needs candy corn when you can get candy corneas? As if they're hors d'oeuvres at a monster mash party, these eyeballs have forks sticking out to really make them pop.

4. Pick 'n Lick

A giant sugar cotton swab gathers up globs of ear wax-colored powder. This is the eeriest candy here.

5. Toxic Waste

There's a classic trope of hazardous waste turning people into heinous mutants. This version turns kids into people who enjoy sucking on unpleasant, intensely sour candy. According to the barrel's chart, keeping one of these in your mouth for a minute makes you a full toxie head. If you last only 45 seconds you're just a toxie wannabe.

6. Slithering Snake Suckers

The disturbing part of this candy is not that its similarity in size, shape, and color to a real snake would elicit a double take from any unsuspecting passerby, but the fact that it "lasts all day." According to the box's printed gauge, if you start sucking at dawn, you'll only be halfway finished by noon. Sounds noxious.

7. French-Fried Gummy Candy Fingers with Liquid Candy Blood

Chicken fingers and french fries are kid-menu staples. This candy capitalizes on what children already desire, but with a revolting twist: They're human-shaped fingers stuffed in a french-fry box with a packet of blood as a condiment. That points it in the top-10 digits.

8. Blood Energy Potion

This sugary maroon liquid claims to have "similar nutritional content to natural blood." A serving does provide 55% of recommended daily iron value and 880mg of amino acids. It even tastes like blood, but only Franken Berry's blood. An impressive Web tie-in poses it as a synthetic blood substitute for vampires, an alternative to feasting on humans. With its microwave instructions to heat to 98.6°F and transfusion bag packaging, we give this an A(Rh)+ for commitment.

9. Body Parts Sushi

There's something about eyeballs, fingers, and ears topping seaweed-wrapped rice that gives us an extra kick of queasiness. Associating hacked body parts with customary fare legitimizes cannibalism in a way that puts us ill at ease. Also, the list of ingredients includes the word "pork." Wretch. Comes with chopsticks.

10. Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Beans

The Harry Potter series has ended, and so must this list. (Un)fortunately, the franchise leaves us with the grossest candy ever marketed: jelly beans made to taste like "dirt," "rotten eggs," and "vomit." You don't need to have consumed an earthworm to know that the Jelly Belly chefs nailed the flavor. It's obvious in its repulsiveness.

    • Scientists have solved the 100-year-old mystery of Antarctica's Blood Falls

      It's been 106 years since Australian geologist Griffith Taylor discovered the vivid red falls flowing from the glacier named after him, onto the icy Lake Bonney. It was originally thought to be caused by red algae, but it wasn't until 2003 that it was decided the red color came from oxidized iron and water most likely draining from a 5 million-year-old saltwater lake. Now a study from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado College confirms the glacier has not only a lake underneath it but also a water system that has been flowing for a million years. The uniqueness of Blood Falls as a time capsule for ancient microbial systems fascinates scientists and gives them a way to study the possibility of life on other planets without the need to drill into ice caps.

    • 'Fixer Upper's' Chip Gaines sued by former business partners for fraud

      "Fixer Upper" star Chip Gaines is being sued by two former business partners in a million-dollar fraud lawsuit. According to court documents obtained by KWTX, John L. Lewis and Richard L. Clark, former co-owners of Magnolia Realty, claim Gaines bought them out of the company two days before HGTV picked up "Fixer Upper" which "prominently featured the 'Magnolia' brand name." Lewis and Clark filed their 24-page lawsuit Wednesday in state district court in Waco, Texas, and are seeking more than $1 million in damages and non-monetary relief, KWTX reports. The scorned business partners say Gaines bought their shares of Magnolia Realty for $2,500 each while working with HGTV on the future hit show.

    • The Mitch Trubisky deal: Are the Bears rebuilding or hallucinating?

      Let me get this straight: The Bears traded four draft picks that their weakness-riddled roster couldn’t afford for a quarterback who started only one year and won’t play next season because they’re paying $18.5 million to a quarterback who couldn’t get nearly that much from any self-respecting team. Do I have that right? All along, it looked the Bears were rebuilding. Turns out, it looks like they’re hallucinating. In order to move up one spot in the first round Thursday, Bears GM Ryan Pace dealt the third overall pick, the 67th pick and the 111th pick in this year’s draft, along with next year’s third-rounder for the right to take a strong-armed quarterback coming off a bad bowl game. Couldn’t

    • U.S. says 'major conflict' with North Korea possible, China warns of escalation

      By Steve Holland and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, while China said the situation on the Korean peninsula could escalate or slip out of control. Trump, speaking to Reuters on Thursday, said he wanted to resolve the crisis peacefully, possibly through the use of new economic sanctions, although a military option was not off the table. "There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea," Trump said in an interview at the Oval Office.
