Candy Corn

I wanted to put a cool giveaway up today, but I am too swamped to get to it. Guess it'll wait, though it drives me crazy when I can't get to something. ;)

I did have a cool thought just now though...


It's Fall, and that means the stores are going to have candy corn.  Mm hmm mm. Doing a pit stop on the way home.  People seem to love it or hate it, I l.o.v.e. - love it. You?

I hate them after I've eaten too many. LOL!

Janine Huldie said...

I love candy corn and seriously one of my favorites things about this time for sure :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

We love it! Plus the Autumn mix and pumpkins as well.

Sandee said...

I love it too. I've not had it in years though. It goes right to my hips if you know what I mean.

Have some for me. Okay, have a lot for me.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Manzanita said...

Go Corn.
And you can have my share too. I used to L.O.V.E. it when I was a kid. Much tooooo sweet now.

Elephant's Child said...

I don't think we get it. Which is fine. There are way tooooo many sweet treats in my consciousness already.

Chatty Crone said...

I hate to even admit this - but I LOVE it too. I am so bad.

Masshole Mommy said...

La-la-LOVE it. It is weird, though, people feel very strongly about it, there is no middle of the road with candy corn!

alissa apel said...

I love it!

Brian Miller said...

i had some candy corn last night....
it is that time of year...
empty calories...ack...ha

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I can take it or leave it

Pat Hatt said...

I'm with the hate, even though I've never eaten it lol

Binky said...

Never had candy corn, but wine gums, that's the ticket!

Ai Sakura said...

Never had it before!! What does it taste like? Corn??

Theresa Mahoney said...

Hate. Though I do buy several bags a year for photo props lol. Life of a blogger.... :)

Carla said...

I don't really care one or the other. My husband and son are both really missing it this year, though, since we no longer consume any artificial dye.

mail4rosey said...

It just mimics the look of corn kernels, doesn't taste a bit like them. It's made from sugar and corn syrup, so totally not good for you. And it's only easy to find this time of year. :)

mail4rosey said...

I'm w/your husband and son, and totally missing it too. The little (only) store in our town had three varieties of it, but not the regular one. -_- I'll have to wait until we make it over to the city.

mail4rosey said...

I know this sentiment! ;)

mail4rosey said...

Woot! Three cheers for the candy corn lovers, lol

mail4rosey said...

I like the mixes too.

mail4rosey said...

Silly store didn't have plain. I have to wait. ;) I'll be sure to have some for you though (happly, ha!). :)

mail4rosey said...

So many things were much more delicious when we were kids. ;)

mail4rosey said...

It's not good for you. At all. ;)

mail4rosey said...

but it's so good! :)

mail4rosey said...

That's true. It's odd, lol

mail4rosey said...

High five. :)

mail4rosey said...

Lucky! My store hasn't got plain. They've got some weird varieties, but no mix or no plain. Guess I'll wait (enter pouting here). :)

mail4rosey said...

Hey, that defies the love it or hate it theory I had!! :)

mail4rosey said...

This time of year there must be candy corn (at least a handful of it too, the best way to eat it). ;)

mail4rosey said...

Never had wine gums, but I'd try 'em ;)

mail4rosey said...

It's cheap enough to buy and not eat. ;)

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

I've never tried it but I did see it in a US Candy store that just opened here.

mail4rosey said...

How fun, I'd like to visit that store just to see what was selected. :)

~ Noelle said...

I have to be in the mood.... then i LOVE It... other times I am NOT a fan... weird.. right? but you know what I hate? always???? peeps... and Broxton LOVES them.

Franc said...

It looks like real corn though. I'm sure kids would like this one.

Colette S said...

I keep hearing how good these are.
Maybe one day I'll try them.


I hate when I can't get things up either. Oy

Ann Jones said...

I don't have a preference either way :) Too much sugar gives me a headache, so I only eat a small amount of Halloween candy in general. Don't feel bad about not getting the giveaway up, I am so behind on blog posts that it isn't even funny...

Cindy Gordon said...

used to love it! But now I have to be careful as most brands are processed in a plant with peanuts/treenuts and my kids are allergic :(

Theresa Mahoney said...

So true! And CVS usually has extra bucks around this time to get a bag or 2 for free!

Liz Mays said...

I'm not a fan. I can eat one or two pieces if I have to, but they're just not my thing. The boyfriend can eat a bag!

Catherine Sargent said...

I love candy corn and the candy pumpkins. We pick up a bag of each every week it seems like.

Terri | Sugar Free Glow said...

Not a fan! Too sweet for my taste!

Heather @ The Beating Hearth said...

Eww, hate over here, but the husband and girls love it. What about the yucky pumpkins that are made out of candy corn? shudder. I'm a black jelly bean kind of girl.

Erica Brooks said...

I love candy corn. I only get to eat it in the Fall around Halloween.

Sweepster said...

My wife is addicted to candy corn! I like it in small quantities as well.

Tamika Mapp said...

I used to eat these all the time and couldn't wait for Halloween; when I was small. As an adult, I don't like them as much as I love Reese peanut butter pumpkin's.

Laura MyNewestAddiction said...

I want some candy in my life right about now. Just started nutrisystem!

Rochkirstin Santos said...

Does it really taste like corn? One time I was in Singapore and tasted a candy that's really corn flavor. I loved it!

MaryJane Tauyan said...

i haven't tried this since maybe we dont have fall in asia hehe but maybe i can be lucky and find one of these in the stores too

Rebecca Swenor said...

I happen to agree about candy corn. It used to be my favorite candy when I was a kid and now it is one of my favorite. There is always a purpose for when we do things so don't stress about the giveaway. Thanks for sharing now I have to go buy so candy corn. lol

Monica said...

Loved it as a kiddo - I'd rather have chocolate now. But I agree - candy corn has a cult following!

Paulina @ Color Me Brave said...

Ah I love candy corn. It was my favorite growing up.

Krystal Butherus said...

I just bought a bag! I don't eat them, I decorate with them!

Felice said...

oo man candy corn is my weakness. i already stocked up on so many bags! I have to admit I finish eating them all so fast lol!!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I never liked candy corn. Now, I can't eat it anyway. Lucky for me I don't miss it since it is everywhere this time of year.

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Never had one but it looks yummy!

EmmaT said...

We don't have candy corn in the UK, I have no idea what it really is.

Julie Tucker said...

I love candy corn, but I really love the Autumn mix candy corn. Yum!

Fokeet said...

I haven't had candy corn since I was a kid and I didn't care for it much then. On the upside I think it makes for nice halloween crafting material.

Kath Rivera said...

I think candy corn is not available here in our country. I hope to see them here so that we can taste it too.

Terra Heck said...

I could take 'em or leave 'em. I'll eat a handful or two but that's about it.

Rose-Marie said...

I love candy corn and all different colors. I seem really only feel compelled when it is the holiday season, if I see them, I must stop and have some!!!
