A city in North Carolina took it upon themselves to unofficially ban what they say is the worst candy ever: those chewy peanut butter kisses that are wrapped in black and orange paper.

"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," The city said on Facebook. "No one likes them, don't give them out."

I don't know how one becomes the "Emperor of Acceptable Candy," but I wouldn't mind having that title.

"It's not so much peanut butter hate as it is hate against a really all-around terrible candy," a city spokesperson told Munchies. "I mean, I understand people have strong feelings against candy corn, but does candy corn break your teeth? No."

"Does candy corn come in a wrapper that's impossible to fully remove, causing you to enjoy your candy with a side of wax paper while you attempt to chew it? No. These peanut butter abominations are really unfortunate, and in order to help create the most enjoyable Halloween experience for the youth of High Point, we preemptively 'banned' them."
