The Father of Lies (of Candy)!
Every year I think, “Why not give candy corn another chance?” And every year, my tongue ends up cursing my naivete.
(I’ve made my views on candy corn known before. And I’ll do so again, and again, and again.)
Very cute comic. I felt the same way for years, but have learned that very certain recipes of homemade candy corn is an exception.
My tongue is skeptical, yet intrigued.
I generally hate candy corn with a passion, but one year my parents were gifted these Halloween candle holders that were inexplicably packed with candy corn that were green where they should have been orange. They were green apple flavored, and I loved them but I’ve never seen them since!
Hmm… mysteriously delicious candy corn. Sounds like some sort of enchanted fairy trap. XD
I know that Wegmans bulk section has just apple flavored Candy corn last I looked, but I thought it tasted like unhappy.
I’ll never forget the first time my mother gave me candy corn. She said,
“Here – Lewis, this is candy corn. It’s corn that tastes like candy”.
[high pitched sound] This tastes like crap! And every year since then,
Halloween has returned and I, like an Alzhiemer’s patient, find myself
in the room, and the room has a big table in it, and on the table is a
bowl of candy corn. And I look at it as if I’ve never seen it before.
“Candy corn”, I think. “Corn that tastes like candy. I can’t wait”. Son
of a bitch!!
— comedian Lewis Black, from The Daily Show
I get that too. Mostly I after such an incident I would say “NO WONDER I FORGOT!”
So it’s not just me, then. Every few years, for some unknown reason, I forget how deeply nasty candy corn is, and try to eat some. The first piece immediately puts me off it for a few more years.
I’m guessing because it looks like a corn kernel?
I don’t hate them, but I can never eat too many at once. Caramel Candy corn is slightly better than the regular one, I think.
How does it taste? I’ve never got the chance to eat one, but I’m n love with the way they look ♥
Sprinkle a little sugar on a candle, and then eat it. The experience should be similar.
if you taste of lies.. lies never tasted so goo!!! x3 *drool*
I LOVE CANDY CORNS!!
I am dead serious. I only got them a couple of times when I was a kid and I loved them. I can’t say what it is about them exactly, but I love me the candy corns. Last year sometime I was in the Olde Candy Shop where they had all these fantastic imported sodas and candies and things that are just plain bizarre. Amid my friends getting some fancy british pops, I’m asking for…. 100g of candy corns, please. The girl gave me twice as much for the same price because NO ONE EVER BUYS THEM. I felt speshul.
*shudders* Why must you torture me with your disgustingnes candy corn!?!? WHY!!!!!
I sometimes wonder when people say they hate candy corn if they always get stale candy corn or something. It’s pretty tasty when fresh, and some brands taste better than others. (shrug) it’s kinda a mushy sugar/wax /honey taste.. I like the pumpkins made of the same stuff better though, less wax more mushy sugar/honey candy stuff..
