Halloween is here and that means scary ghosts, goblins, witches, and superheroes.  Of course, costumes aren't the only big deal about October 31st, for many kids (big and small) it's all about the candy.

Growing up, when it came to Halloween my friends and I would map out the areas that we would go Trick-Or-Treating to maximize our chances of filling up our bags with the best sugary treats possible. There were certain houses that you had to stop by because you knew you were going to hit the motherload with full-size candy bars, or some sort of candy combo package.

We would then spend the next several days going through our stash which usually resulted in not only a sugar high but a gut-ache.

Of course, we all have our favorites. Things like Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Nerds, and Kit Kat were always popular in my house, and then there was the candy that nobody wanted and was left untouched for months.

For me, it was those taffy-like things that came in the black or orange wrappers.

I figured I couldn't be the only one who despised those nasty little bits of whatever they were, so I decided to ask local Montanans what their least favorite Halloween Candy was, we had a clear-cut winner and we'll get to those in a minute, but before we do, let's take a look at some candy that's still around that many of us have forgotten about.

6 Candy Bars Nobody Thinks About Anymore, But Still Exist

Dots, M&Ms, Snickers...the candy aisle is jam-packed with options! But despite the fancy new flavors, these oldies are goodies - if you can find them and confuse the kids on Halloween.

For more than a few Montanans the idea of coconut in their candy isn't appealing, so Almond Joy and Mounds made the list as well as those fruity little nub things called Dots, and some Montanans simply have no time for the classic Tootsie Roll.

However, the most disliked candy by a mile is Candy Corn.

For whatever reason many Montanans aren't fans of the surgery little corn kernel-shaped treat. In fact, some of the responses included "gross", "eww", and "yuck". Granted, it's not my first, second, or third choice, but I wouldn't say they're the worst of all of the Halloween Candy.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
