Once upon a time, candy tasted like nice things. Even wild flavors weren't unbearable. Sour apple? Sure. Spicy red hot? Bring it on. These days, candy flavors have entered new, gag-worthy territory. These are the most disgusting jelly bean flavors ever.Would you try these?


Black pepper

Part of Jelly Belly's Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans line, this flavor is probably the least gross of the horrifying jelly bean flavors out there. (Jelly Belly, $2)



When chowing down on Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, you do not want to bite into this salty surprise.



Most of us have eaten a little dirt between falling down and being a kid, but that doesn't mean we hope to try this Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans flavor.



Nothing about candy that tastes like gooey earthworms is OK. Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans strike again.



You'll never look at your Q-tips the same way again if you end up munching on an earwax-flavored Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean.


Rotten egg

Remember the rotten egg scene in Charlotte's Web? You'll get to experience it for yourself — right in your mouth — if you land on this bad egg in a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans.



When enjoyed appropriately, sausage is a wonderful flavor. When condensed into a tiny jelly bean in a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, it is not OK.



If you made it through your entire childhood without having your mouth washed out with soap, don't ruin the trend with a soap-flavored Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean.



The less said about this Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean, the better. Try taking deep breaths through your nose to ward off the urge to gag.Would you try these?


Stinky socks

Jelly Belly's BeanBoozled beans trick hapless jelly bean fans into eating beans that look like normal, tasty flavors but that actually taste like disgusting things like stinky socks. Unless you're a golden retriever, stay away from this flavor. (Jelly Belly, $2)


Lawn clippings

This BeanBoozled grass flavor isn't quite as terrible as some of the others. But fresh grass is more of a pleasant scent than a yummy flavor.



Mint isn't a bad flavor, but this BeanBoozled toothpaste flavor has all the chalky, medicinal grossness you'd expect from an accidental swallow of toothpaste.



Different name, same horrible jelly bean flavor. Perhaps the most terrifying BeanBoozled flavor, barf-flavored beans looks like harmless peach-flavored beans.


Canned dog food

If you really want to know what Fido's dinner tastes like, devour a handful of canned dog food BeanBoozled jelly beans. But don't say we didn't warn you.


Moldy cheese

Blue cheese is technically moldy cheese, but it doesn't belong in a jelly bean. Hold your nose for this BeanBoozled flavor.


Baby wipes

While baby wipes have a decidedly floral scent, they're still not something you want to suck on, despite what BeanBoozled thinks.


Skunk spray

No amount of tomato juice will make the horror of skunk spray leave your mouth after you've tried this BeanBoozled flavor.



We're sneaking this supposedly good flavor onto the list because it's so divisive among Jelly Belly fans. What's the verdict? Are popcorn-flavored jelly beans delicious or disgusting?
