Revisiting candy corn

I posted this a couple years ago and the comments were so fun that I think it deserves a rerun.  You can check out the comments here.

Okay, it’s time to talk candy corn. I know there are a lot of you who don’t like it. I love it! Funny thing is that a lot of people associate candy corn with me. Sad and funny at the same time, don’t you think?

Anyway, as a candy corn connoisseur, there are certain rules about candy corn.  The first is freshness.  Stale candy corn is terrible.  This is why I only eat candy corn in the fall when most is consumed and what you get is fresh.  Don’t be buying any convenience store snack bag of candy corn in July and expect it to be good.  

The other is brand. I am very particular about the brands of candy corn I like.  You can’t just go and buy any old candy corn.  Best brand?  Zachary’s.


It has the best flavor in my opinion.


The other thing about candy corn?  You cannot mimic the flavor in other things.  It’s like fresh strawberries. Any kind of strawberry candy or muffin or whatever just doesn’t taste like strawberries.  So just say no to this:ccoreoMost definitely say no to this:


It’s just white chocolate colored like candy corn. Imposter!!!

The other thing is to stay away from candy corn that has been adulterated.   This means none of this:



No, no, no.  JUST STOP IT!!


Candy corn is a simple candy. Not sure why I like it so much, but I do!  We should take a poll and see how many candy corn lovers also love eggnog (I do!), which is another polarizing holiday treat.

    What about the stupid little ‘harvest colors’ variety that are brown where they should be yellow? As you can tell, I am not a fan.
