As everyone knows, there's a definite hierarchy of Halloween candy. At the very top are your Snickers, the varied variations of Reeses, M&Ms, etc. Middle of the road candies have names like Babe Ruth and Mounds or even Butterfingers. Then there's the very bottom tier, the candies that are used either as fillers or because they're traditional.
At this point, you're probably thinking candy corn (and you'd be right), but there's another, even more lower tier candy. Black licorice, the twirler-shaped instruments of gastronomical torture that only the few and the tastebud-challenged enjoy.
