I have to admit that I did not realize that candy had intentions. I was obviously wrong as there is a report about the most dangerous Halloween candy you can possibly get in Missouri and it just might be trying to take your life.

Call me a fuddy duddy, but I don't celebrate Halloween. I did enough research into the evil origins of the 'holiday' that I'll take a hard pass. I will admit that I am the exception to the rule though.

I had someone send me a link to a rundown of the most dangerous Halloween candy and I found it interesting that one is more lethal than all the rest. Wanna hazard a guess as to which sweet tooth violator is the culprit?

What is the most dangerous Halloween candy in Missouri?

Shiny Smile Veneers says it's the menacing Jawbreaker. Shudder as you watch this plotting killer. I do see the choking hazard possibilities though.

What other candies could be out to get you?

The ranking also says Jolly Ranchers, Bit-O-Honey, Starburst and Tootsie Rolls are dangerous. Please say it ain't so. I'll add my personal note. If you get injured by a Starburst, you probably had it coming. That's just me talking.

One other candy mentioned as dangerous that should rank higher in my opinion is the Atomic Fireball. Swallow one of those things before you get it broken down and you're in for a world of hurting...if you live.
