I had no idea that there was a National Candy Corn Day until BigSis sent me a link about another candy corn inspired idea. Who knew?
I never eat sweets and I really don’t eat any sugar. I don’t crave anything sweet at all. BUT, I LOVE CANDY CORN. Nothing but sugar, honey, and corn syrup! It must be something from my childhood.
Tomorrow is Halloween and I haven’t even bought my first bag of candy corn yet. I resisted when at the store last week. I knew if I bought it too early, there wouldn’t be any left for Halloween. Today, I’m heading out to buy a few bags; one to eat and one to make this candle display I talked about earlier this week.
My very favorite type of candy corn is the Brachs Autumn Mix that has the regular candy corn, Indian corn (with the chocolate bottom), and the little pumpkins all mixed together in one bag. I love the post on Candy Blog about this yummy candy! Apparently, this is hard to find this year. I’m on a mission to find me a bag!
Candy Corn and Oreos! I’ll be binging off the walls if I eat it, but it just might be worth it! Thanks to Baking Bites for sharing the link to this recipe.
