It won't be long, and thousands of Mainer's, who live in the County, will head out to their favorite store and buy bags of candy as they prepare for Halloween.

According to Dr. Gabriel Mannarino, a dentist, and Dr. Holly Halliday, a periodontist, some of the worst candies that kids can eat are the ones who are really sticky.

If you care about the kids in your neighborhood, then stay away from these 5 types of candies. According to, these are the worst.

  1. Laffy Taffy - When it comes to your kids' teeth, there is nothing funny about this stuff.
  2. Starburst - If you get one of these lodged in a tooth, it could burst one of those fillings out.
  3. Dots - Why would anyone eat those anyway?
  4. Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms
  5. Skittles 

Some have shared that some of the good candies to give away if there really is such a thing, are M&M's, Nestle's Crunch, Peanut Butter Cups, and Kit Kat's.
