It is remarkable to me that a food as milquetoast as candy corn is polarizing as the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Candy corn is garbage trash food! Candy corn is delicious and hating on candy corn is the new candy corn! Why is it that people hate candy corn? Let me explain!
No fewer than five different people asked me this week on my thoughts on candy corn, all with the same kind of “this is not really what this question is about” guise as when a Tinder date asks about the last book you read. My two thoughts:
- Candy corn is something that I will put into my mouth, chew and eat and that is as much as I really have to say about candy corn. [Ed. note: Though I will note that
Indian Native American Indigenouschocolate candy corn is worse and mellowcreme pumpkins are superior.]
- If not for candy corn, I would not know what an actual corn kernel looked like, so I will always be grateful for the lesson.
