Who loves Candy Corn?

With Halloween upon us, today is a great day to celebrate National Candy Corn Day!

Did you know that this candy was created by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in the late 1800′s? He created this sweet candy to represent the colors of corn kernels.

Originally,the candy was made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves of a palm tree). Today, it’s produced using machines, although the original ingredients are still used in the recipe.

Grab a bag and enjoy!

    I LOVE candy corn, Butterfingers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and and the impossible to find in the US REAL Cadbury chocolate (the kind with the tofffee pieces.)

    My daughter went as candy corn one year. It was so funny because kids in her class had no idea what she was but when she went out trick or treating, all the adults knew. My all time favorite is snickers.
