Heheh...

The worst thing about Halloween is, of course, candy corn. It's unbelievable to me. Candy corn is the only candy in the history of America that's never been advertised. And there's a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. And so, since nobody eats that stuff, every year there's a ton of it left over. And the candy corn company sends the guys to the villages and they collect out of the dumpsters all the candy corn we've thrown away. They wash it!! They wash it!

I'll never forget the first time my mother gave me candy corn. She said, "Here - Lewis, this is candy corn. It's corn that tastes like candy". [high pitched sound] This tastes like crap! And every year since then, Halloween has returned and I, like an Alzhiemer's patient, find myself in the room, and the room has a big table in it, and on the table is a bowl of candy corn. And I look at it as if I've never seen it before. "Candy corn", I think. "Corn that tastes like candy. I can't wait". Son of a *****!!

So is frightmaster and yet I am oh so LOVED. I love candy corn too. Maybe it feeds the evilness. I guess something has to fill the hole where my conscience used to be.

Personally, I rather enjoy Candy corn. Just not in extremly large quantities in one sitting. Acctually I'm like that with most candy... I need healthy food. But anyway, each person has his or her own opinion... more candy corn for me and frightmaster, i guess.

So which would you pick - a bowl full of fresh, wonderful candy corn or a king size Snickers?

Candy corn or snickers??????? Thats a tough call.
I personal like twix you cant beat a 2 for 1 with candy bars! I guess kit kats would work also but they arent as long or as thick as a regular candy bar but they are a 4 for 1 .
A side note mounds and almond joys don't count as a 2 for 1 because they are so small but oh so good.
Well NOW I gotta run to the store and grab some snickers,almond joys, kit kats, twix, and if they have it.....CANDY CORN!!!!!

Odd that this should come up. Just yesterday my daughter Valerie and I were at ACE to pick up some Fire Extinguishers for a job I'm just finishing. At the Check=out Counter (where else?) Valerie spied bags of Candy Corn. I said, "You sure Baby? It's ALL sugar." She's 6 years old. Needless to say, we got a bag. Half a mile away from ACE, she couldn't stand the sight of it anymore, we stopped and gave the rest to some kids going home from School.

Okay, I'm ready to dodge the stones that are likely to be thrown at my head but...

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE CANDY CORN!

In fact it is my number one favorite candy. There aren't many stores that sell Candy Corn after Halloween, except for Publix (a popular supermarket chain in Florida) and even they don't have it all the time. So I stock up on it during the Halloween season and especially on the after Halloween candy sales. The honey they use in making this colorful candy gives it such an unusual flavor I find it hard to understand why most of you dislike it so much. But as has been said before, that just means there's more for me!
