Candy Crack Corn

I love this time of year. The air is crisp, leaves start changing color, you can wear cute jackets, and I can TOTALLY rationalize eating tons of CANDY CORN. I love it. I know only a few who can join me in my obsession (Mary!). What is it about those little nubs that are so scrumptious to me and leave me longing for more? That's right. All that SUGAR and COLOR.

How to eat a candy corn:

1. Buy only Brach's. Those other might LOOK fine, but nasty.
2. Don't go for those pumpkins or even the "chocolate" candy corn (and don't even get me started on the "Christmas" candy corn).
3. The three flavors DO have different tastes.
4. Never eat them in one bite (unless they are on a cupcake or a cookie).
5. You must hold one in your hand, and take small bites starting from the white part, up.
6. Don't think that Jones Candy Corn soda will actually taste like the real thing--it doesn't.
7. For best results, eat only in the fall.

We have a decoration with candy corn in it on our front table in the foyer. The kids always ask for them when we are getting ready. I give in a lot, but they sure are fast at getting those shoes on!

Yay! I completely agree! Candy corn is one of the things that I look forward to at this time of year. I have eaten it your specified way as well. It makes more time to appreciate all that corn syrup you're nibbling on. Oh so tasty!!

Sorry, Jules. I can't join you in the love of candy corn. Alternating mini PB cups and Starburst? That's a snack I can get behind.

I'm with you Julie! I love candy corn. Have you tried candy corn hershey kisses? I think they only sell it at Target but can't compare to the real thing.

OK...they're good if you eat five at the most...go more than that, and it's toxic CANDY CORN CLAUSTROPHOBIA!

Here here to FALL! Isn't it wonderful? Happiness all around. I've always been somewhat embarrased or ashamed to admit I enjoy candy many people think its so gross! However, I don't think I'm an aficianado as yourself:)

Two words to describe candy corns: Nas-ty.
