Candy Corn Love or Hate it.

Candy Corn, Love it or Hate it.

Candy-Corn love hate

Have you ever been at a party and asked about Candy Corn? Yes, the tricolored triangle shaped candy. Some people quickly turn up their nose and explain their hate for the artificial color and flavor. While others grab it by the handful and gleefully explain their love for the stuff. A major news outlet polled their Facebook viewers and got some amazing responses. Some said: “Tastes like wax.”, “My husband can eat them until he pukes.” The responses were evenly divided between haters and lovers. There must be a strong love because the National Candy Association says Americans will buy 15 million pounds of Candy Corn during the Halloween season. That is a lot of sugary wax.

Whatever your feelings of hate or love for Candy Corn, the sugary treat has been around since the 1880s and this Friday is National Candy Corn Day. (Who comes up with “National” days?) Since it is a “National” holiday, I am giving myself permission to indulge in the sugary treat. With only 7 calories per piece and no fat what could go wrong? To begin with, I purchased a bag yesterday and quickly opened it the parking lot. Oh, the shame. I blame it on the late morning drag and no kids around. The truth is the candy comes around once a year and I embrace the sugary rush. There is no fear of melting or going rancid. The only challenge is keeping it hidden from the kids because Bryan and I both indulge this time of year.

Have you tried to buy a bag this year? The traditional small bag is crowded by different varieties. So far, I have found: Pumpkin Spice Flavored Candy Corn, Candy Corn M&Ms, Chocolate Candy Corn, Candy Corn Oreos, Indian Candy Corn and Carmel Apple Candy Corn. I am sure there are others that I missed. The golden discovery this year was an artificial dye-free bag. This means Wild Regan can FINALLY taste my sugary indulgence without the dreaded side effects. Woo hoo.

Do you like candy corn? If so, do you eat it whole or it in pieces?

Sharon, The Mayor

  1. Can’t stand the stuff. Probably ate it as a child. My downfall is the Reese’s Peanut Butter seasonal candies. If I bring more than one into the house, I can’t stand it until all are gone.

  2. I love it! I think if candy corn were available every day, I wouldn’t like it as much, but it’s definitely a once-a-year treat for me! I eat it both ways; whole and biting off the different colors. 😉

      Did you hear they now have candy corn for Christmas? It is red and green and called Reindeer Candy. Oh, the horrors.

What do you think? Tell me......
