National Candy Corn Day - October 30th

Today is National Candy Corn Day. Do you like candy corn or hate it?
Theresa is in the "like" category. And to celebrate candy corn, their shirts matched the colors of the candy. White, orange, and yellow.

According to Theresa the only good candy corn is from Brach's. When I went looking at Target, the only one I could find were these. Instead of being super saturated fake colors, these are derived from natural sources.

Time for the tasting. What's the verdict?
She doesn't like them. Not sure why, but it's not what she's used to.
The kids thought they were just fine. Waxy and sugary.

I grabbed a picture in an orange shirt with the kids too. But I'm pretty set with my opinion of candy corn.

I saw this recently. I think it perfectly applies. Both are terrible.

So love it or hate it, today candy corn is celebrated.


  1. (lol)...Don't forget black licorice exists!!! Unless the candy corn recipe changed from many moons ago, then I'm in the "like" category (but not as much as "liking" chocolate!) But I'll definitely second the vote that black licorice is at the bottom of my candy list :-) EOM

    1. It just tastes waxy to me, and I'm not a big fan of that texture for my candy.
