I am going to admit up front that I've never been a huge fan of candy corn. But it's always there.
Each time autumn arrives, candy corn is sure to follow.
My own opinion of candy corn was most likely formed as a child. When Halloween and Trick or Treat came around, most friends had their favorites that they hoped to get on Trick or Treat night. Reese's, Snickers...my personal favorite were those B-B-Bats of taffy that came in chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter and my favorite: banana (remember these?)
In any case, I don't think I ever heard any of my friends or classmates exclaim, "I hope I get candy corn!" It just never happened.
But candy corn is traditional. It has become part of our culture and it is expected. And it doesn't taste bad!
Did you know that October 30th is National Candy Corn Day? Now you do.
So what exactly is candy corn?
"Candy corn is a sweet replicate of dried corn kernels. It's considered "mellow cream,"a name for a type of candy made from corn syrup and sugar that has a marshmallow-likeflavor. although candy corn tastes rich, it's actually fat-free."
