    Well, it seems to be that time of year when orange candy boxes start appearing it stores.

    Along with that, piles and piles of candy corn. Cast your vote in the poll!

    Candy corn is great. However it is not a candy I can eat a bunch of. Don't forget about the candy pumpkins.

    My local grocery chain carries a generic candy corn year round, I buy a bag 2-3 times a year.

    #10 2 years ago

    I second the salted peanuts mix… tastes like a payday or salted nut roll.

    Whats the story about Circus Peanuts anyway? (in a Seinfeld voice)
    Why are they #1 in one poll, and #2 Behind Candy corn in another?

    Candy corn is probably one of the worst candies, ranking just above necco wafers.
    *prepares for the downvotes from candy corn fanatics*

    Candy corn is okay but Indian corn is the bees knees.

    The worst Halloween candy looks like a list of the best door stops.

    The tootsie rolls are alright as long as they are fresh and chewy.

    #18 2 years ago

    I hear there is a Candy Corn Museum somewhere.......
    probably next to the worlds largest Ball Of Twine.

    #22 2 years ago

    Had a Halloween party about ten years ago and left a bowl of candy corn on the table in the basement. Forgot about it, went out to the store the next day and the dog found it while she was home alone....came home to orange dog puke all over our basement carpet.

    I saw him live years ago and this was part of his act. Absolutely hilarious.

    #24 2 years ago

    I never knew you could eat this stuff, we always threw it at people's houses during mischief night.

    #25 2 years ago

    I will eat candy corn before eating the generic gum drops, or the random sucker with loop handle that has escaped its wrapper.

    #26 2 years ago

    It is the most disgusting waxy candy made . I bought 10 bags today on sale. For a friend of course

    #27 2 years ago

    Burn it and throw in some peeps and cotton candy while you're at it.

    #28 2 years ago

    Circus Peanuts are worse

    #29 2 years ago

    I enjoy wearing a couple like fangs, and nibbling the rest of the package one color at a time.
    I’m easily entertained.

    Candy Corn is awful, but Haribo sugar free Gummy Bears are the worst ... and not because of the tast.

    I think there is no expiration date on candy corn.

    #32 2 years ago

    Unless you get either the "Hot Tamales (Cinnamon)" or the Blue Raspberry ones. They're actually good.

    #33 2 years ago

    I like Candy Candy Corn, there, I've stated it. How ever have not bought any in many years.

    Neeco Wafers are great, now that they are back in production. The big question is what the hell is Circus Peanuts? (Googled it).

    Lastly, those Molasses Candies in the orange and black wrappers were suppose to be the worst.

    Candy corn isn't much of a thing on this side of the Atlantic, but I'll have a few bits if it's passed around and I'm bored enough

    My grandfather really liked them. He always had them around. I guess it was one of the few things from his childhood that was still available.

    I didn't care for them much, though.

    #37 2 years ago

    Don't eat them straight out of the package. You need to let them ripen for a day or two. They're much better that way.

    #38 2 years ago

    Last night I had someone’s home made ice cream: vanilla with candy corn added in! The cold made the candy corn crunchy. Yum.

    Whoa, that looks interesting. Do they taste more like nerds or more like candy corn? Or a blend of both?

    #45 2 years ago
    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    The texture is the candy corn, the flavor and sourness is nerds.
    I'd say a pleasant blend of both.
    Found them at my local pharmacy of all places.

    #46 2 years ago

    Tastes like poverty, but I love it. Brach’s Autumn mix is what I like best.

    "Texture of Candy Corn"? Hard Pass!

    [quoted image]

    I picked up a bag of the autumn mix a little while ago. I like the pumpkins and regular candy corn, but I'm not a big fan of the ones with chocolate mixed in.

    #49 2 years ago

    Can't eat them anymore due to health reasons, but I greatly imagine my opinion would differ from two ends of the spectrum before and after eating about 5 of them.

    Probably the quickest treat to go from tasty to disgusting after you've had a few. Just becomes too much. Until then though I remember them fondly. But not like a bag of potato chips where you gotta force yourself to put the bag away. After a few it's like "eeeeuuuuuuuggggggggh."

    #50 2 years ago

    I dig Candy Corn and I don’t care who knows it. Autumn Corn is even better. But a little goes a long way. You can go from “I love this time of year!” to “I hope I don’t shit my pants while I throw up this candy corn!” pretty quick.
