    Do you love candy corn, or hate it?

    Last Halloween, I threw a big party and purchased 3 bags of candy corn. No one ate it. What gives?

    I gotta say I don't enjoy candy corn, the taste anyways.  I think the candy itself is very festive and I like to buy it for my house around Halloween.

    I like them, but only to an extent. After a few the sugar content gets to me. I usually only eat them around this time of the year...

    I personally don't care for candy corn although it does look pretty in a dish. I have several friends and family members, however, who are excited for fall to come so they can get some candy corn.

    It's a love/hate relationship. I think I love it, and enjoy it for a little, but then don't quit eating it, and therefore feel sick afterwards.

    I always love the first one or two pieces, but I think its just because it's the season for it.  After those first pieces, even days later, it just tastes like cornstarch and sugar to me.

    Same goes for Mellocreme Pumpkins...

    I like it to an extent.  I do eat a few pieces but not much.  It is not my favorite by far but a couple pieces are good for Halloween.

    Love it!!  Then when I have had too much of it I turn it into the Mock Pay Day Candy!  So it is still a wonderful thing!!

    I love it!  But it does seem to be a very polarizing candy.  Much the same as Swedish Fish (which I hate) and Good and Plenty's (which I love).  At any rate, I would easily be able to handle 3 extra bags of candy carn... smile

    Like others here, I like it but can only take it in small doses. I don't think I have ever bought this candy myself but do eat some when I see it out at other places.

    I love candy corn! but not the candy pumpkins.
    I think candy corn has a limit, so it's not like MnM's where you can eat them by the handfuls. Maybe people picked at them, but didn't take full handfuls smile

    I love it, not the taste, but the memories it brings back. Mom loved it, and it reminds me of her.

    I love the way they look because of its association with Halloween, but hate the way they taste. Gag! I have purchased some before purely for decorative reasons.

    I absolutely adore candy corn!  But I only allow myself to purchase it in the fall, else I would have no teeth in my mouth! I really don't know why I love it so much--I guess I'll call it a weakness...and candy pumpkins, too!!
