Nothing says Halloween like Candy Corn! But do you know the reason it is called Candy Corn? – Hint: It’s not because of the corn syrup…..
It’s because if you stack it like THIS it looks like an ear of corn!
*GASP* Mind. Blown. Right?!
But back to the sweet stuff–I love collecting Candy Corn! I have them made out of wood, wax, styrofoam, fabric, and of course……sugar!
I actually ordered 30 LBS this year to fill my jars (and refill as I eat)… Giggle : )
In my kitchen, I have an entire section my family likes to call the “Ode to Candy Corn”. It’s pretty difficult to walk by and resist grabbing a few pieces! Let’s just say…I usually put on a few pounds even before I sneak into my kids Trick-or-Treat bags!
I also love popping candy corn in on tablescapes, my Halloween tree, and of course my daughter’s clothing!
I’m on the hunt for the perfect Candy Corn dessert! Does anyone have one?
