For the 21st day of Inktober, I have a special treat: A guide on how to eat candy corn, and a reminder of the book giveaway that runs October 21-23!
Halloween is in the air. For me, that means an annual candy corn craving. Most people in the US are probably familiar with these fun little tri colored treats. Did you know there’s more than one way to eat them?
You can eat them by the bunch – good if you’re really hungry.
You can eat them by the piece – good if you want to make them last.
You can let them dissolve – good for long term flavor.
You can nibble them by the color – see if you can taste a difference.
You can break them into pieces and eat them in little heaps of each color – good for the obsessive people among us, like me.
You can let it dry out so it’s crunchy.
You can try different flavors too. I like Brach’s candy corn, because they use honey and I think that makes the flavor richer and more mellow.
Protip: Dollar store candy corn doesn’t taste as good – the flavor is weaker and it leaves an aftertaste. FIfty cents more gets you the good stuff.
Candy corn also comes in cappuchino, peanut butter, chocolate, caramel, and my favorite, pumpkin spice. In my opinion, pumpkin spice and candy corn flavor is a match made in heaven.
What’s your favorite way to eat candy corn? Any odd flavors I’ve missed?
