Halloween will see approximately 20 million pounds of candy corn sold in the US and Canada. Interestingly, candy corn was created a decade before the Ouija board. The sweet treat was originally called chicken feed – sounds so appetising, doesn’t it?
Candy corn is not only shaped like a corn kernel, but it is made from corn syrup which will see children and adults alike bouncing off the wall before their inevitable sugar crash.
Over the years, new flavours and colour combinations of candy corn have been introduced. During Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and the Fourth of July you can find differently coloured candy corn to suit the celebration. And, in more recent years, new flavour variants such as caramel apple, carrot cake, pumpkin spice and s’mores were made available.
Which is your favourite flavour of candy corn?
While October 31st is Halloween, don’t forget that October 30 has been designated as National Candy Corn Day. Find some fun candy corn facts here.
Much like candy corn, you could artificially colour your skin with a tattoo, but not just any tattoo, a candy corn tattoo. Here’s some inspiration in the form of some cute and some creepy candy corn.
