Candies are sweet and are eaten either to improve one’s mood or one’s taste. However, these were manufactured with a different motive in mind. The list will end and you will not be able to figure out the main objective behind their existence.
1. Ear Wax Candy
While this candy may just taste okay, the experience is definitely ruined as it has to be scraped out of a plastic ear. The container consists of a swab as well- thank god. It makes one wonder if kids will start using the swab to eat their own ear wax once the ‘candy’ runs out.
2. Candy Scabs
Again, this candy may just taste okay but they look like real scabs and come along with plasters as well. How can kids enjoy consuming something that looks like it was once oozing blood?
3. Dubbel Zout
This candy is in the form of small balls and is licorice flavored. This may sound okay to you but wait for it- it is also drenched in salt. Dubbel Zout is candy which is salty. This is definitely among the most revolting candies ever and the fact that it looks like a pill does not make it any better.
4. Hotlix Candy
A Hotlix Candy is colorful and is definitely sweet but once the coating is licked off, you will find yourself face to face with a real scorpion. Kids will be expected to consume a scorpion’s guts after ingesting a large amount of sugar. It is difficult to figure out which part is worse.
5. Gorilla Boogers
Gorilla Boogers are black beans which have been dried and sweetened. This candy tastes like dirt which has been doused in sugar. Children should just go outside and sprinkle sugar on some mud and eat that. It will definitely taste better than Gorilla Boogers.
