... well will be passing some out at work and my daughter will be dressed as a candy corn at work. lol

The other question.. do you like it? Did you realize there is so0ooo many flavors now?

I like them... if they are there.. I'll eat them.

Looked this up on Wiki:
Candy corn is a confection popular in the United States & Canada,
particularly around Halloween
Created in the 1880s by George Renninger of
the Wunderle Candy Company the three colors of the candy
are meant to mimic corn. Candy corn is made primarily from sugar corn syrup and honey.

The National Confectioners Association estimate 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold each year. October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. Although regular candy corn is most popular at Halloween, it is available year-round.

Comedian Lewis Black does a really funny bit on how all the candy corn ever made was made in 1911 and is recycled every year. Check out You Tube I'm sure it's on there. (foul language alert for the sensitive!!)
As for me??? I can take it or leave it.

I don't eat candy any more, but I remember my grandfather always had candy corn available for the kids whenever we visited.

I didn't know it had a special day.

Now was this her idea?

Or her mom's idea for her to dress up as candy?

Default Candy Corn in space

Thought this would be appropriate in honor of National Candy Corn Day.

I like lots of other things, but I don't like candy corn.
Give it to my brother. Give it to my sister.
I hope I get something else to eat, when I dress up to trick or treat.
I would even eat my own feet. I bet they taste much better.
I don't like candy corn. No, I don't like candy corn.
I really love Halloween, but I don't like candy corn"
