It's Candy Corn Time!

Don't you just LOVE it when the Candy Corn finally gets ripe and can be found in the stores? I do! Those yummy, delectables can now be found in so many different shades of brown, orange, red, or even blue! (They must be hybrids!)
Here's some trivia for you:
1. Halloween accounts for 75% of the Candy Corn production.
2. October 30th is National Candy Corn Day.
3. Each year Americans eat enough Candy Corn that if the kernels were laid end to end, they would circle the Earth 4.5 times!
Let's celebrate by munching on a handful of CANDY CORN!

i love candy corn, but sadly, the English population does not feel the same!

Oh you poor thing, Pixie! Not to have CANDY CORN around this time of year is an outrage! :0(

Your giveaway is up today! Sorry for the delay in letting you know when it would be featured. This month totally got away from me!

Oh, and just a little preview, I have a book going up sometime this month, that has the recipe for making candy corn! I'm going to try to make some this weekend!

My daughter loves candy corn...but none of that hybrid stuff, she only likes the original...

Thanks for sharing the candy corn facts!

Happy Munching!☺

Just between me and my could probably add a good 100 miles worth of candy corn. :D

LOVE the stuff.
