Fall marks the beginning of the candy holiday season. I know it is upon us when the bags of candy corn appear in stores.
There are several varieties, my favorite being the three-color ones. Brach’s makes a decent version. According to the folks at Wikipedia, 20 million pounds of kernels are consumed each year. As with most candies, people either like this stuff, or hate it. Honestly, I can only eat a few since it is so sweet.
This also makes for great craft and decorating projects. You can even make a wreath out of the stuff.
Traditionally, candy corn was made for Halloween and Thanksgiving. There are now versions for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter. I am a traditionalist and only eat it in season, so now’s the prime time.
