A Taste for Corn

Summer might be corn season, but the fall is the time for candy corn, the real stuff, preferably Brach's. It calls my name. I do like corn--popcorn, corn on the cob, frozen corn, creamed corn, corndogs, cornbread, corn pone, corn tortillas, corn chips, KORN radio station, rows of corn, corn shucks, corn shuck dolls, roasted corn, corn nuts, and corn-fed cattle. Even corny jokes are okay.
But candy corn stands apart, an addictive honey-sweetened handful of yellow, orange, and white corn-shaped treats. I do enjoy them.

Yes! I just today, for the first time this season, had me a handful of candy corns (I like to pluralize the term--it just seems fitting) finished off with a mellowcreme pumpkin.

Bring on Fall!

Candy corn with salted peanuts...a fantastic combination. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

It's hard to go wrong with candy corn, isn't it! I agree. The mellowcremes are good, and the peanuts add that salty counterpart. Yum!
