Yummy Candy Corn
According to the TLC website here is the candy corn story......

Every Halloween, bags of triangle-shaped, yellow, orange and white candies fill trick-or-treat bags all over the country. And there are many bags to fill: According to the National Confectioners Association, candy companies will produce nearly 35 million pounds of the corny candy this year. That's about 9 billion individual kernels of corn.
Candy corn is a sweet replicate of dried corn kernels. It's considered a "mellow cream," a name for a type of candy made from corn syrup and sugar that has a marshmallow-like flavor. Although candy corn tastes rich, it's actually fat-free.

There is even a National Candy Corn and of course it is the day before Halloween or October 30th each year. Candy corn celebrates it's 132nd birthday this year so it is pretty old.

Other candy corn items are: soda, cookies, mixed candy and more......

Candy Corn Funny Poem

In 1880 Something Was Born
It was a yummy treat called Candy Corn

Pretty in color and tasty too
Candy Corn is best on holidays with BOO!

But you can eat it anytime
When you are hungry for something other than slime

Candy corn soda and now Oreo Cookies
Take Mom to the store and a take a lookie

Buy a big bag and snack on it now
It is low in calories so you don't look like a cow

You can even dress up to look like one too
Although be careful someone might eat you

Candy corn is fun and part of the scene
Taste some more now and see what I mean
