It’s Candy-Corn Season!Friday, September 16th, 2011 by Jessica Prokop
It’s amazing that, at the same time, we’re enjoying the final luscious corn cobs of summer and gearing up for Halloween. We know — you don’t want to talk about the end of summer. But Halloween is a guilty pleasure of a holiday that marks the kickoff of celebration season. And to better prepare you for stocking up on the “fruitcake of Halloween,” we offer our guide to classic and contemporary candy corns.
Brach’s is the only classic candy-corn flavor that’s true to tradition. This is the kind of corn you remember from your childhood (you know, when you liked to break apart the flavors)! It’s the most popular candy corn in the world.
Make a subtle twist with classic candy-corn that has a chocolaty burst at the end. Brach’s Indian Corn is a simple way to add some color and flavor (or even flair) to your Halloween treats. Use the leftovers to round out your festive Thanksgiving decor.
This tasty twist on candy corn is best eaten in one bite. Its popcorn flavor is shockingly close to the real thing! These Milk Maid Caramel candy corns are a great way to please adults and less-conventional candy eaters this Halloween.
Even chocoholics can enjoy candy corn this Halloween! This chocolate-and-caramel corn will add color and excitement to your treats. And with just 140 calories and zero fat per 19-piece serving, they provide guilt-free chocolaty goodness!
A pretty exciting addition to the candy-corn universe, Brach’s Caramel Apple Candy Corn has a satisfyingly tart apple flavor (reminiscent of Caramel Apple Cow Tales) combined with a caramel-corn base. Eat the whole piece for a bursting blend of flavors, or separate the top and bottom to savor each of them separately.
Don’t let the name fool you — these soft candy corns won’t stick to your teeth. This twist on candy corn packs robust classic flavor into a melt-in-your-mouth gummy candy! They taste just like the real thing, but they’re more fun to eat. Make your Halloween and Thanksgiving treats more exciting and little-kid friendly with gummy kernels of candy corn.
So stock up on the basics. Buy in bulk. Don’t miss out on the million things you can do with candy corn, whether you eat it or not. Personally, I’m working on a candy-corn mural. If you do something interesting with yours, let us know. We might just feature you on our site.
