I just started pretending to enjoy candy corn a few years ago. The husband likes to dabble in a bowl of seasonal waxy goodness, and I have issues with not partaking in candy bowl treats. As a kid, I wanted to want to eat those fun pumpkin shapes, but just could not commit to that big of a mouthful of yuck. I respect candy corn and its harvest mix friend's place in seasonal confectionery offerings, because the colors and shapes are second to none. However, I refuse to see any purpose in the Easter candy corn. Now I see that the corn has become just another food item facing an identity crisis. Perhaps this is just a way for people to admit that candy corn flavored candy corn is kind of gross, so let's make new flavors. Does anyone really need permission to eat candy for breakfast?
Oh, sorry, I guess candy for brunch is far more acceptable. Now we can all be like Violet Beauregarde and have our meal in a Wonka-like piece of candy! (I hope nobody turns pink from the waffles and strawberry.) I am not buying it...literally, not buying it. (You can probably guess my thoughts on the new candy corn Oreos I saw. Just stop.)
