Just wanted to share my happiness with you all!

After discovering candy corn 2 years ago when a very kind American cousin of a work colleague sent me some to try...and then being over there this time last year and buying some for myself...I had realised that Halloween just would not be Halloween again if I didn't have Candy Corn....but this year I didn't think I would be able to get hold of any. I had looked on load of UK websites but they all said "Out of Stock":(

Well I have just found some "YIPEE"!!!!!!:D:D:D:D and it should be with me in 3 days!

I am soooooo Happy.

Just wanted to share my joy!

Thank you!

Even though it's not my top favorite candy, I have to buy some every year... it is the candy that most says "Halloween" to me. :)

SO glad you've found a connection in your area to get some! :D

It has now become a tradition that I always do a "Guess how many in the Jar" and I was getting desperate. My big Brother has been a very close second in this little quiz two years running and he is determined to be the winner this year. So if I hadn't managed to find any he would have been gutted!

Your so right...it is the little things that become the traditions over the years. Now I have found a supplier in the UK I am a happy bunny! :D

Awwww.....It really is the little things that make Halloween so special isnt it!?! I just picked up some "candy apple" flavored candy corn *DELISH*! Glad you were able to get you some!
Wow where did you find "candy apple" flavor candy corn.

I'll be honest I don't like the regular candy corn. So while in Walmart I saw that they had some "gourmet" candy corn in the flavors of : Black berry cobbler, Creme Brulee', Pumpkin Spice, and Apple Cider.

I like the Pumpkin Spice in small doses. The other flavor I bought Creme' Brulee" is SUPER SWEET! lol The sweetest tasting candy that I have ever had I believe lol

So glad you were able to find a candy corn "connection!" Someone posted above about taking things for granted. That is exactly what I was thinking. Candy corn is everywhere here and in all different colors and flavors now. Though its not my favorite candy (because its not chocolate) I still like to get some of the original flavor candy corn. Its also great with popcorn. Now I think there is a recipe where you mix the candy corn and popcorn and maybe something else, but here's how I do it: Take a handful of candycorn and put it in your mouth with a handful of popcorn (I have a big mouth!). Yummy!

I'm curious is there a particular candy item that is big in the UK for halloween that isn't readily available here in the States?
Sadly not, its more the "party size chocolate" just smaller versions of bigger chocolate bars....
Or its the jelly/gummysweets from the pound store...




Britishwitch> where did you get it from? i am trying to get some....!:D

Ahhh man... although it's not my favorite candy, candy corn is sooo amazing... but, what really gets me is the candied/caramel apples and I know it's not halloween specific, but getting some cotton candy this time of year... ohh just thinking about that makes me feel like I need to hit the gym every day this week. haha

You may want to check out Target then, if you can. They have chocolate-covered candy corn in various flavors, and they are darn good. There may even be some chocolate-flavor variant in there somewhere (though I realize imitation chocolate is sort of an insult to the proper stuff;)).

Britishwitch and Ruggerz: I wonder if there is any sort of customs rigmarole that one would have to go through in order to send something like candy corn to you from the states:confused:. If not, maybe someone can hook you up with a supply if you need such?
