Good Reads: Candy Corn – Yea or Nay?

by Nicki on October 30, 2009

When Autumn arrives I am certain of two things:

1. I will be purchasing candy corn and eating it.

2. I will be eating it alone while my husband holds back involuntary gags. It is a season-long controversy in our home.

So, what’s your take? When you see those yummy candies appear on the shelves for 99 cents do you scoop them up and tear them open in the car or do you equate eating candy corn with eating a candle?

While you ponder my deeply urgent question, be sure to check out some of these links. Happy weekend everyone!

Why I do what I do ~ Chloe just woke up from her nap, walked up to me and said, “Mama I just woke up last year.” I smiled.

LOVE IT! I get it every fall.

That’s one vote for me!

Ummmm…can I be in the middle? I like it, but I can take it or leave it. My husband LOVES it, although I’ve discovered not to buy the ones with the chocolate ends, because I found a massive ziploc bag full of JUST the chocolate ends on his desk.

P.S. Your “Surprising Uses for Your Dishwasher” link takes you to someone’s flickr page. MAN for a second I thought I’d been Rickrolled there!

Kelli M- Thanks for the heads up on the bad link. It’s all fixed now :)

Seeing how you’re indifferent to the candy corn I’ll count your husband as another vote for me. Two votes for me, none for hubby!

For anyone that’s wondering – this is my husband. And no honey, that will only count as one vote. :)

Love the stuff! Those pumpkins that are similar too. My hubby is the one who gags at it too

Yes to the candy corn. Pump it up by mixing with nuts. Mom always made “Duke’s Mix” of candy corn & Spanish peanuts. A few years ago we discovered the killer…candy corn & cashews. TO DIE FOR!!!

I love it! But I can’t have too much or it makes me sick. The pumpkins are actually my favorite.

I’m a fan of the candy corn and peanut mix. It tastes like a Payday candy bar! Thanks so much for the link! I hope your readers like my ideas for improving marriage.
