The city of High Point, North Carolina are in the news this week for banning a candy. They issued a harmless statement this week poking fun at the old school taffies, and how they’re now banned in the city.


They took their Facebook and said “Alright everybody, we’re giving you a one-week notice as you prepare for trick-or-treaters to remind y’all that by order of the City of High Point Emperor of Acceptable Candy (it’s a real thing), these are banned. No one likes them, don’t give them out.”

I couldn’t agree more! Well done to everyone in High Point, for going along with it as well. Those were the worst candies to get when Trick or Treating!  I’m a Reeces and Almond Joy guy myself, so if you’re thinking about putting these taffies out again this year …. I hope you think twice!
