Top 9 Halloween Candies That Your Dentist Hates

As Halloween rolls around once again, so does the endless supply of candy on store shelves to hand out to trick-or-treaters (or just eat in one sitting.)

Basically the stickier the candy, the longer you’d need to brush and moderation is key.  In an interview with AOL Life,  Dr. Ramin Tabib gave a list of the worst candies for your chompers.  FYI: The worst candies are the ones that get stuck in your teeth.   


1. Butterfinger

Dr. Ramin has three words to describe the candy: “Sticky. Sugary. Gooey.”

2. Swedish Fish

Because of the stickiness of Swedish Fish, the candy “lingers” around in the crevices of your teeth.

3. Lollipops

Dr. Tabib says the candy “bathes your teeth for a long time with sugar.”

4. Tootsie Rolls

Another popular go-to, Tootsie Rolls are a cavity haven because they “stick around.”

5. Sour Patch Kids

Kids should also avoid the candy because they are “acidic and bathe mouth in sugar.”

6. Laffy Taffy

“Too sticky!” says the dentist of the candy.

7. Jolly Ranchers

Jolly Ranchers can literally “break teeth.”

8. Caramel Chews

Like the other candies, the sugar-filled caramel chews are “too sticky!” and can wreak havoc on your chompers.

9. Gummy Worms

Sour or not sour, gummy worms are very “very acidic!”.
