It's an odd thing. People often like to put down the candy corn.
Is it a silly name? Yes. Is it an odd shape? Yup. Is it a weird color choice? Of course.
But does it taste bad? No. It's fine. I wouldn't want to sit and eat a bag of it. It isn't that good. Besides, that's a bag of sugar.
But the attitude towards it is odd.
As a counterpoint, remember this from your Halloweens nights?
A popcorn ball. If you've never seen it before passed to you as you Trick or Treated about, it is a thing you could get.
Why? I can't fathom. They are dreadful. It's like seeing a rice cake as a treat.
Sure, you can add flavor. But still...
So I hope no kids will be getting that Halloween night.
On the plus side I actually have seen a new treat that, to me, is kind of cool.
Caramel Apple. And it works. Surprised me, but it actually has a nice taste to it.
Something good came from this Halloween season.
