The British chef, 49, admitted to Kimmel, 48, that while the holiday isn’t a “big thing” in the UK, he does have very strong opinions about the candies and sweets that are doled out to trick-or-treaters on October 31.
“Hello, this is Gordon Ramsay,” he began the pretaped clip. “This Halloween, excited young children will come to your door with bags open. Now, you have a choice. You can give them something good to eat, or you can give them Smarties.”
At this, the Kitchen Nightmares host stuffs an entire handful of Smarties in his mouth and quickly spits them back out. “Seriously. The perfect combination of aspirin and Tums. Smarties are for f–king dummies.”
Other items that made the cut include circus peanuts (“How f–king sad are they? Do you know what circus peanuts are? Clown s–t!”) and candy corn (“It’s not candy and it’s not corn. It’s earwax formed in the shape of a rotten tooth.”)
By the end of the segment, the notoriously hot-tempered chef had flung all the items on the floor in a fit of frustration and stomped off set.

Ramsay’s cooking competition show, Hell’s Kitchen, returns Friday, November 4, to Fox.
