Causing Controversy with the US Halloween Candy Tier List

Oh yeah, I’m going to break some relationships up and make a tier list. A Halloween candy tier list.

For this we aren’t making caramel from scratch because you should be well-versed in how I cannot be bothered in doing anything (or to put this in a positive, cool way ‘maximum effect with minimal effort’, so we’re using delicious Werther’s Chewy Toffee caramels.
