Trick-or-treaters all know that good candy is vital to a successful Halloween. 'Sweets, sweets, and more sweets' is their motto. Sometimes, their neighbors disagree.

The three “G’s” of Halloween: Ghouls, ghosts, and of course, gummies.

Let’s face it, even better than dressing up as our alter egos, the best part about Halloween is the goodies that await you in your trick-or-treat pails, bags, pouches, or pockets.

The moment we all wait for is when we finally come home, our legs tired, our costumes itchy, and we get to review and critique all the candy we’ve accumulated.

But, we’ve all been there. There are always those sore thumbs that stick out of your bounty of sweets that make you want to tell your neighbors, “Smell my feet!”

Listed below are the seven worst “treats” you seem to get every Halloween:

1. Raisins

Raisins are not and never will amount to anything close to candy so stop giving them out at Halloween! Raisinets maybe, raisins never!

2. Oatmeal

This is not breakfast time, kids want chocolate for the morning after Halloween, not oatmeal, even if it is pumpkin spice flavored!

3. Toothpaste and Toothbrushes

The last thing any trick-or-treater thinks about during Halloween is brushing their teeth. While the attempts at good hygiene are admirable, the hygiene products...are not.

4. Floss

...must come to a stop! Floss is just a substitute for string. Candy-floss-bracelets anyone?

While we’re in the dental hygiene department, giving little containers of floss must come to a stop! Floss is just string. Why not candy-floss-bracelets instead?

5. Apples

Ever wonder why bobbing for apples is a thing? It's where all the trick-or-treaters throw the useless apples they get on Halloween night. No thanks!

6. Bouncy balls

Though these colorful round balls resemble jawbreakers, they are not even close! Where's the spirit?

7. Coins

 Lastly we have the cop-out of a treat that the neighbors who couldn't make it to the store to buy candy hand out. Coins can't substitute sweets unless they're the chocolate ones.
