Candy Corn

As you know Halloween is rapidly approaching. Or, did you miss the three day promotion back in July...right before the xmas decorations came out. But I digress.

Candy Corn, the treat that makes the corruption of my high holiday all worthwhile. Unfortunately, there is a mutation at work and I don't like it. Do you?

What's your favorite?

Yellow tipped.





OR



Brown tipped.




Or are you ambivalent?

Agree with Tude. I usually don't go for candy unless there is chocolate involved. There is something about candy corn that is inherently evil.

the evil element of the candy in and of itself should make it worthy then. I run hot and cold on this candy. I feel about candy corn the same way I feel about circus peanuts. Sometimes I could eat an entire 1 lb. bag, other times, I would rather eat skunk arse.

Now I like circus peanuts - that kind of bananananan-like overpowering smell, plus ... More bang for yer buck ... You can play with them. They're fun to squish! and to stretch!

yes, but with the candy corn, especially the tri or quad color varities, you can try to nibble just one layer of color at a time. precision eating as it were. you can find play value in most foods, if you look hard enough. there are three exceptions to this rule, but of course you already knew this.

Yeah. Stephen King could write a book about it.

Something like 'Children of the Candy Corn'

If you rub candy corn on your face, you get pimples and black heads. Yet another example of hard pore cornography.

Candy corn falls beneath the "blechhhh!" line. So do those circus peanuts - but still far less disgusting than those horrendous peeps abominations that crawl out of their mutant caves in disturbing numbers before Easter.

Halloween candy should be chocolates, or smarties, or sweet tarts.

TG - you know nothing of "older"
