Candy Corn Makes For Yummy Halloween Treats

If you live in North America chances are you have heard of the delicious yummy candy treat Candy Corn. If you are unfamiliar with this autumn favorite you are in for a sweet surprise.

Candy Corn is a striped triangle shaped candy patterned on the colors seen in a single kernel of corn. Classically Candy Corn is white, orange and yellow. Candy Corn is predominately made of sugar and corn syrup. It is usually enjoyed around Halloween as the confection has become linked with the holiday.

Fans of Candy Corn owe a special thanks to George Renninger of the Wunderlee Candy Company who invented the treat in the 1880's.
