For the 31 days of October challenge – Day 30 – today is national Candy Corn day in the US so in honor of my favorite fall confection:
Candy corn has been around since the 1800’s, so apparently I’m not the only person who loves it. As of 2016, annual production in the United States was 35 million pounds, or almost 9 billion pieces of candy. It is rather polarizing taste wise, people either love it or hate it. I’ve never known anyone who simply had no opinion on candy corn. For me it just wouldn’t be Fall without candy corn but it’s strictly a Fall thing. I don’t like Easter corn, Reindeer corn, or Cupid corn. I’m not one for those other shapes in “Autumn mix” there’s just something about the shape that goes with Fall.
Unfortunately with an ingredient list that lists such delectables as “sugar, corn syrup, and carnuba wax” at my age not a lot of the treat fits into my dietary regimen. But where there’s a will there’s a way and the internet.
My new favorite way to enjoy Candy Corn
