A Quick Tip by Kort_Kramer

Many people do not realize that candy corn is at it's peak flavor potential when it is at its freshest. I think one reason it is disliked by so many is that they end up eating stale candy corn. If you are fortunate enough to get some that is made by a sweets specialty shop, then you are in for a treat!

Cany Corn RULES!
It seems that every holiday has a particular food item that no one wants to touch.  Christmas has the fruitcake.  Thanksgiving has cranberry sauce.  New Year's has cabbage.  Despite this fact, these items always manage to make their way into the house for the holidays.       Why?  A brave few people actually try these bizarre foods sitting all alone in the reject pile on the table and actually enjoy them?      So what food …

Candy corn is a confection in the United States and Canada, popular primarily in autumn around Halloween. Candy corn was created in the 1880s by George Renninger of the Wunderlee Candy Company; the three colors of the candy mimic the appearance of kernels of corn.

A serving size of 22 pieces contains 140 calories and no fat. Candy corn pieces are traditionally cast in three colors: a broad yellow end, a tapered orange center, and a pointed white tip. A popular variation called "Indian corn" features a chocolate brown wide end, orange center and pointed white tip. In recent years confectioners have introduced additional color variations suited to other holidays, including Christmas and Easter

History
Candy corn has a legacy that goes back over a hundred years. The Philadelphia-based Wunderlee Candy Company's George Renninger, invented this popular candy back in the 1880's. Wunderlee Candy Company was the first to manufacture candy corn as a result.
