If you subscribe to the infinite universes theory, there's at least one universe where candy corn isn't horrible.

That's why the infinite universes theory is dumb.

I misread the headline as 'Full Candy' and thought this was an expose on a curvy porn star.

Came looking for circus peanuts, left disappointed.

Still like candy corn anyway.

I gave my four year old candy corn for the first time and he loved it.  I was so proud.

"That it's not actually meant to be edible" wouldn't surprise me in the least.

3) Generation X Loves Candy Corn the Most

As a Gen X-er, I am happy that I go against this trend.

While I don't love candy corn, I never understood the revulsion for it.
 
2022-10-03 1:14:56 PM  
Every so often, once in a great while, I get a craving for candy corn.
I eat up a package of it and I'm good for a year or more.
Maybe it's related to childhood.
Since I'm old, I got to actually go out trick and treating on my own.
Would get a huge bag of candy, lots of candy corn.

If you don't love candy corn, something inside of you is broken.
I can't imagine going through life a desiccated soulless husk.

"Candy corn gets all this slander every year. Meanwhile, trash ass circus peanuts go by every year with no smoke."

Unacceptable. Circus peanuts are the farking worst, followed closely by candy corn. I would respectfully decline accepting both as halloween candy if I were still of trick or treating age.

The taste can only be described as sugar with a waxy texture. I get that in a world without other candy options that might sound appealing, but we don't live in that world.

I bought candy corn on Saturday when I went grocery shopping. I enjoy the stuff every now and then.

The problem is, none of you have actually been exposed to candy corn the proper way. Yeah, if you eat it right out of the bag, it's nasty, but that's not what it's for. It's like if your parents don't know how to cook vegetables, you grow up thinking they all taste terrible, when that's not the case.

Open a bag of candy corn, and place it on a shelf in a closet or some rarely used place. Once a year, come back to it to check to make sure it hasn't attracted vermin--that's probably not going to happen, considering it's candy corn, but you don't want to take risks. Anyway, after five or six years it should have properly aged and dried and can now be given out to children at Halloween.

The most delicious thing in the world is the sound of crying neighborhood children trying to eat them.

When I was a kid in the 70s candy corn was ... OK.

It was creamier and had a vanilla flavor. It was a nice change from regular candy.

But over the years it got waxier and flavorless, until you get to the waxy sugar candy that Farkers love to hate today.

Candy corn mixed with dry roasted salted peanuts is a pretty decent snack, even if it does result in immediate tooth decay and high blood pressure.

The mixture tastes like Pearson's nut rolls.

I like it OK, but it's far from the best candy. Best "fall" candy? I mean, I guess, if by "fall," they mean "seasonal" and unlikely to sell well at other times of the year, mostly because of the competition from all the better candy (i.e., chocolate) which dominates pretty much every holiday. Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter.

They're still trying to come up with an excuse to make chocolate a must-buy in summer. I think "s'mores" for cookouts is the closest they've gotten.

Candy Corn is the larval form of a traffic cone.

As they get older the (the cones) will deposit their seeds. Just lift one up in the fall...they're seeding now.
Which get discarded by the road side to grow other traffic cones.

"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 *****!!"

Yeah, but the black licorice is the biggest and longest of them.

If you get some cuban pulled pork, some spicy red sauce, chunked pineapple, caramelized onions, jalapeno, and some feta, you've got yourself a farking amazing pizza. Spicy, sweet, savory, tangy, it's got all you could want.

Whoever just rotely says pineapple doesn't belong on pizza frankly deserves to be triggered.

I don't know for sure, but something about black licorice makes me think that if you eat enough of it, you just might.

I guess this is meant for the same people who buy turkey soda or whatever. It features hot dog and hamburger flavors. They sell it exclusively at Walgreens. Doesn't require a prescription, but probably should. ☠

How it's oddly addictive.  I don't like it, but every year I try it again, just to say "that was not good".
 
2022-10-03 1:37:24 PM  
I guess I'm one of the few that likes candy corn. But it has to be good candy corn.  Made with real honey, and not just HFCS. That dollar store candy corn it utter ass.

Though I just hit upon a thought...let's do a survey. Who here likes candy corn but also hates cilantro?

Hm. Maybe it's one of those things where one person went off on it, and millions suddenly decided "I, too, have always loathed this." Like the word "moist."

While I don't seek out candy corn, if there is some around and it's fresh I enjoy it.
