Do you like candy corn?

Make sure you go back to today’s newsletter to read some fascinating trivia about candy corn. It’s one of those things that you either love or hate… Which side are you on?

Every year, 35 million pounds of candy corn are made—that’s almost 9 billion pieces of the corn-shaped candy. Of course, the majority of that candy corn is eaten now, during the Halloween season, but it can still be found in stores year-round.

So tell us: Do you like candy corn? If not, leave a comment explaining why. We dare you to try a piece… you just might like it after all!

And guess what? I’m eating candy corn as I type this right now! Mmmmm! I’m on the “I love it!” team. Who’s with me?

See! Holding a handful of the good stuff as I write this!

Call me old fashion but I always have liked candy corn. Just something about it the same way as ribbon candy. Necco wafers the same. Something I grew up with. it’s like fruit cake I have found a couple that I enjoy and have to mail order.

The only bad thing about it is that I usually eat the whole bag at once. 😉

Plastic wax disguising itself as candy.

I liked candy corn, but as a diebetic I can no longer eat it.

I like the Harvest Corn best, it has chocolate on the larger end. Not a fan of original Candy Corn.

It’s okay but I prefer chocolate….

Candy corn? I’d rather eat chalk.

It was my favorite candy as a young child. I had a certain way I ate it, first I bit off the white tip, then the yellow top and finally the orange center.

Isn’t that how we ALL ate it? I haven’t had candy corn in years, but if I run across some, I’ll eat it the “old fashioned way”.

As a child? I still eat it that way at age 66 years. 😉

I think it’s a different concoction than fifty years ago. Taste very waxy today versus a buttery flavor of years ago. With so many sweetness out there, no telling what it is and what it’s doing to the flavor and texture.

Yes! and the pumpkins, too!

If it’s not chocolate candy, I don’t eat it!

Post WWII the candy corn companies “capitalized” on the ritual of handing out candy for Halloween. Yes, let’s support our local dentists to fix rotting teeth and doctors to cure diabetes. I found my first toothache and had my first visit to “the drill” when a candy corn got stuck in a back molar. In the 1600’s England, children were handed a penny for Trick or Treat. That’s the equivalent of a 2 dollar bill in today’s currency.
