Sure, sometimes as kids we got baked cookies, candied apples, or other homemade yummy treats, but upon occasion homeowners doled out some supposed treats that ended up in the trash or traded away for something tasty.
Let's take a fun trek down memory lane at some of the worst treats ever -
The snack that says, "I could become something good, I'm just in my raw form now." Perhaps one of the most dreaded but well-intentioned treats. I remember giving those over to my mom to compete her oatmeal cookies.
Licorice, peanut butter, and cinnamon, if I recall. These anonymous candies made kids of the 70s who grew up in the paranoia-about-tampered-candy set them aside. There was no label, no one to contact should these be toxic or having a nail hidden inside....
You knew it was a lame-o candy when your parents asked to have some. Licorice, being an acquired and mature taste, was just not one the kiddies looked forward to downing.
