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.

    • Russia creates 'unstoppable' hypersonic Zircon missile with Navy destroying 4,600mph speed

      Russia claims to have created a devastating hypersonic missile that travels five times faster than the speed of sound and could rip through navy warship defences because it's too fast to stop. The Kremlin's Zircon missile has been called "unstoppable", "unbeatable" and "undefendable" with a 4,600mph speed that only one defence system in the world can destroy – that system is owned by Russia. The missile employs revolutionary scramjet technology to reach its hypersonic speeds whereby propulsion is created by forcing air from the atmosphere into its combustor where it mixes with on-board fuel – rather than carry both fuel and oxidizer like traditional rockets.

      How do you get within kissing distance of 300 mph? You can strap into a Top Fuel dragster, or any of a number of midsize aircraft. Or you can send this twin-turbo Ford GT down a mile-long stretch of pavement. From a halt, it'll get to nearly 300 by the end of that mile. NCS Designs just uploaded this video of M2K Motorsports' heavily-modified Ford GT obliterating the standing-mile world record at the Texas Mile on March 26th. The Ford, running a fire-breathing 5.4-liter V8 but appearing nearly stock from the outside, hit the end of the mile doing an astounding 293.6 mph.

Diez was filming Palacios with his drone last Wednesday when the close encounter occurred off West Palm Beach, as reported by UPI and the Mirror: Diez wrote on Instagram that “a shark came close to tasting her.” In a few scary seconds, the shark quickly darted into and out of the picture, appearing to come up for a sniff and retreating when it didn’t like what it smelled. “What I think happened was that the shark confused her fins for a fish, but then as soon as it realized it was a human

By studying his remains and piecing together his facial features and biological history, archeologists said they hope to understand the lives of anonymous poor people in the 13th century. "Most historical records are about well-off people and especially their financial and legal transactions," study lead researcher John Robb, a professor of archaeology at the University of Cambridge, said in a statement.

    • A teen died in a car crash — then the state of Tennessee billed her for the broken guardrail

      Steve Eimers knew something was wrong before he opened the envelope with his daughter’s name on it. It was from the Tennessee Department of Transportation, and it was about Hannah Eimers’s crash a few months earlier. Because she was at fault in the November crash in her father’s Volvo, the letter said, the state wanted her to pay up: $2,600 to install a new guardrail end terminal and $231 to get the highway safety device inspected — nearly $3,000 in total. The invoice shocked Steve so much that he dropped a page of the letter onto the floor, he told The Washington Post. Hannah had been dead nearly four months. “It’s obscene,” he told The Post. “They will kill you and then they will bill you.
