{Candy Corn}

There’s no other Halloween candy I despise more than candy corn. You might as well be eating orange painted pebbles. To quote Lewis Black, “All the candy corn that was ever made, was made in 1914. They never had to make it again; we never eat enough of it. Literally, after Halloween the candy corn company send out their minions and they go from garbage can to garbage can and collect the corn and throw it back in the bag…and it appears next year.”

The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away. If you love them, fine. But don't subject the rest of us haters to the sickeningly sweet triangle that tastes like neither candy nor corn...but they do look great in my poison marked jar next to my Halloween Pixie!

I guess it explains why when you buy a 1# bag of Candy corn the price is $1.00 but when you look right next to it on the shelf for a bag of M&M's they are selling for $4.00. Maybe from here on out it on the bags of Candy Corn it should say...
