Candystore.com created its rankings based on a survey of more than 30,000 customers of the bulk candy seller ― as well 12 lists of best and worst candies from publications like Business Insider, Bon Appétit and even HuffPost.

“[W]e put the best and worst candies into a spreadsheet,” the report notes. “In Column A we had a number value. We weighted each list, so a candy that got listed as the worst gets 10 points, while one that ranks 10th worst gets one point ... We then tallied up the points and created our list.”
