  1. There is something about it that makes you like it. Once you chew on the first one and get the taste you start to enjoy it more and more.

    Come to think of it candy corn may be one of the best candies you can get. It doesn’t melt and it doesn’t leave your fingers sticky- now if only they could find some way of adding chocolate to it we would have the big three all in one!

    …and I’m not talking about chocolate flavored candy corn either, I mean chocolate on the inside.

  2. People hate candy corn? I thought it was circus peanuts that people loved/hated with such intensity. And marzipan, but that’s a different holiday…

  3. I like it in very small doses. And when I say ‘small’, I mean 6 pieces max. Otherwise I start to feel sick. They don’t taste bad to me, though.

  4. All the candy corn in the world came into being in Topeka, Kansas in 1932. I mean all of it ever to exist in our world for all time. It is otherworldly hell-candy that should have never been.

    True story.

  5. I’m one of those people who love candy corn.

    Except it HAS to be Bracht’s. The generic brands can be waxy and gross- totally not the same.

  6. I love me some candy corn, but I can only eat one, maybe two handfuls at a time before I have to force myself to stop or I’ll eat the whole bag in one sitting.

  7. I’ve never had candy corn. Never even seen it sold anywahere. I’m guessing it must be one of those things that never got out of America. Shame, I kind of want to see what all the fuss is about.

  8. Val is correct. Candy corn is the Facebook of the confectionery world 😉

    There are lots of other flavors of candy corn now, too. Where I live they have caramel flavor, as well as others (I think grape is one).

  9. To quote Lewis Black:
    “The worst thing about Halloween is, of course, candy corn. Candy corn is the only candy in the history of America that’s never been advertised. And there’s a reason — all of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911.”
    You see, nobody ever eats it. They just recycle it to the next year.

  10. I think the reason people buy it is because they’re giving it to other people’s screaming brats, so they don’t care if it’s liked or not. It’s cheap, you get a ton of it in a bag, and thereby you can make it through all of Halloween without breaking the bank from buying the good stuff.
