      Really fun and tasty ideas here. Never thought about a candy corn costume. Creative look for Halloween, for sure. I'm going to try the candy corn trail mix. Yummy combination of sweet and salty. Thanks!

      Just a note - we did some taste testing on different candy corn brands this year, and discovered that we all like Brach's candy corn the best. Have you ever tried tasting different kinds to see which one you like the most? SquidAngel blessed!

      We've already been through our first bag of candy corn - and it's not even the middle of September! Have to say I prefer the Indian corn type however (I've done extensive research on this!)

      I've honestly never liked candy corn. Just too sweet for me, I guess. But those candy corn crackers on the other hand, those I'd pig out on at a party.
