“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, do not give them out, “a High Point rep wrote on Facebook, sharing an image of the candy in a post that has since been liked over 1,000 and times and sparked more than 300 comments.

Notably, Peanut Butter Kisses were named the fifth worst candy of 2018 as per CandyStore.com’s rankings list, which is produced using data from over 40,000 customers Surveys. For context, the controversial treat made the list alongside classic candies such as Circus Peanuts, Wax Cola Bottles, Necco Wafers and Tootsie Rolls.

Meanwhile, Facebook users quickly erupted into debate regarding High Point’s Halloween ban of the confection.

“Please not sure what this candy tries to be. Is it taffy? Is it caramel? Is it peanut butter mixed with cement? No matter what it is, it’s awful, “one critic of the candy said.

” I remember getting those as a kid. YUK, “one user recalled.”

“No, I disagree. De er perfekte for de voksne Jeg får det at de sier at deres barn er i bilen for trøtt til å komme til døra. Or the teenagers way too old and no costume. Therefore, you have different bowls of candy! “A supporter argued.

Continued criticism of the Peanut Butter Kisses ban was apparently so harsh, that administrators for the High Point Facebook page issued another message on the holiday hoax.

” There seems to be a little confusion from some of our out of town friends: this.is.clearly.a.joke. We’re just saying maybe you will not be the most popular house on the street if you hand these out, “they wrote on Oct. 30.
