It’s the holiday season, and that means presents and candy galore. But there some Christmas candy can leave you feeling like Grinch as well. Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
There could be over $2 Billion in Christmas candy sales this year*. Christmas candy is more popular than ever. Just because it’s popular, doesn’t mean it’s all good. In fact, some of it is downright foul. We surveyed over 13,000 customers who were all too happy to rank the worst Christmas candies ever. Their comments and rankings are below.
Be careful when you ask someone what the worst Christmas candy is. Strong opinions flow easily. Asking people what their favorite [whatever] does not elicit nearly the amount of passion as asking someone what the worst is. True fact.
When we asked our customers to give a couple optional words to explain their choice for the worst… Whoa, did the floodgates open. It’s like they have been waiting for an outlet for their bad candy juju to flow. Letting them get it out actually felt like a positive exercise (exorcise?). If you guys are reading this, I hope you felt a great weight lifted. And thank you for your replies.
And that is how we came to rank the worst Christmas candy. While doing a larger survey, we tacked this on as a final – again, optional – question, hoping to get something out of it. Over 13,000 customers responded.
There were a range of different candies mentioned. Since we had enough data, we narrowed it down into the top ten WORST Christmas candies.
