Tis that time of year when thousands of people across Cheyenne will head out to their favorite store to buy Halloween candy. But these are the worst.

According to Dr. Holly Halliday, a periodontist, and Dr. Gabriel Mannarino, a dentist, the worst candies to cause cavities are the 'sticky ones.'

Here are some of the worst candies that you can put in the kiddies bags on Oct. 31 in Cheyenne.

  1. Laffy Taffy
  2. Starburst
  3. Dots
  4. Gummy Worms/ Bears
  5. Skittles

According to some, the best candies to give kids are the following: Kit Kats, Nestles' Crunch, M&M's, Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey's Chocolate.

A note to parents from the doctors. Rinse your mouth out with water to dilute the sugar and wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your teeth.
