as i continue to deride circus peanuts

My “hate” post this morning opened up a can of candy worms. I had no idea that circus peanuts were such a volatile subject.

For the record, we are talking about these circus peanuts:

Those orange, marshmallow type things that taste and feel like styrofoam soaked in Triaminic. I’m not saying there’s something wrong with you if you like them, I’m just saying, your taste buds are broken. Think of it as a handicap or disability. I bet you could get some kind of special license plate for that, too. “Oh, let him park close to the store….he likes circus peanuts.” The small font is for hushed tones. Because people always talked in hushed tones about someone else’s idiosyncrasies. Except me. I’m calling you out right here. Weirdo.

Anyhow, I thought this would be a good idea for a debate, as debates seem to be all the rage these days. And really, who wants to spend their time talking about Mr. Dow’s Wild Ride or the tanking of the economy or which candidate picks his nose and eats it. Let’s debate the important issues in life. Like, what is the worst candy out there?

Obviously, I am going with circus peanuts. But there are other perpetrators of bad taste on my list:
Mary Janes
Tootsie Rolls
Milk Duds
Necco Wafers
Candy corn
Black licorice
Cadbury Cream Eggs

So yea, I shot a few sacred cows there. But that’s what debating is all about. No wait, debating is about evading direct questions. This is about bad candy.

Your turn.
