Add salted peanuts to the candy corn stat, you will thank me later. Salty, sugary goodness will ensue, just saying.

My Love is..... said...

YUM!!

lauren ♥ said...

i wish. if only it were vegan. sigh.

Hannah said...

Candy corn + salted peanuts + reese's pieces = perfect fall snack. It usually turns into more of a meal for me. Haha

juliemaree said...

Not me. We can't even get candy corn in New Zealand :-( I always wondered what it tasted like though.

Neva said...

I used to hate candy corn...then I got married so we had it around for him...then I got pregnant, and I um, I snuck a bite, then one more, then the whole bowl was gone...so now we have it around for all.

Hiedi said...

I can't keep candy corn at my house. I begin eating it in the store and by time I get home it is gone.

I have a serious love for them!

Amy said...

have you tried the caramel flavored candy corn??? DANGEROUS!

heyjenrenee said...

dude, yes. we stockpile the candy corn + peanuts (or october crack, as i call it.)

Kristi said...

they don't sell it in australia. gasp...i know.

Leigh said...

I would like to, but I'm terribly addicted! Literally I will not stop eating it until I'm sick.

The Daily Fashionista said...

Yuck!!! Candy Corn belongs on the shelves at the grocery store...in my opinion. I can't explain why, but even as a child I couldn't stomach them. Its quite sad, since they are pretty little candies.

Libby said...

no candy corn here. They make me gag (I read your blog often, but haven't ever commented. Time to stop creeping!)

Elle said...

I'm not a fan of them and so we never have any at our house:)

Sara said...

I can't keep candy corn at our house...too dangerous! ;)

tammy said...

I have bought candy corn twice already to put in a pretty little bowl and stare at....and twice my family has emptied the bowl in less then an hour. It's kinda cute how they all sneak around grabbing a handful when I'm not looking ;) so I may have to buy a 3rd bag.

elise said...

ick- try as i might, i just can't do candy corn!

Kathleen said...

My husband LOVES candy corn but I only have it in the house around Halloween. This year I filled a huge hurricane glass with candy corn around a candle for a fall decoration and found out my daughter was eating them out of that!

Jingle said...

Well, how do you define "keep" exactly? LOL! I buy it and I love it...so it doesn't always last very long! LOL! I have a bag in my studio right now! I stole some to take to work with me today in an adorable little pumpkin container!

margot said...

i keep it at my desk. i spend more time at my desk than my house, so i think that counts!!

koralee said...

No candy corn but lots of other candy....I was just looking at some yesterday in the store and almost picked it up...yummmmm. Love your image. xoxo

Laura said...

We do! I keep it in a little pumpkin dish next to the couch for evening snacking :)

Katie said...

me! I love it mixed with roasted peanuts. it is dangerously addicting. very sweet pitcure :)

jaderox213 said...

i do! i only like to eat it in october though (probably b/c i overload on it and am sick of it by the time halloween rolls around), so any leftover bag of candy corn after oct. 31 are strictly for my boo. he didn't even used to really eat candy corn until i moved in, but he loves it now!! :-)

Ruthie said...

I love mixing it with roasted peanuts. It's the perfect mix of salty and sweet! :)

ReFabulous said...

Oh, yes. Candy corn is an autumn staple around here. And no fear of me gobbling it all down, with all the littles that love it, too.

Amanda said...

I keep candy corn at my house--my latest post proves that!

Sarah Kinsey said...

ah i haven't had candy corn in yyeeaarrss.

Carrie Rosalind said...

Yum! I love candy corn!!! :)

Tracie said...

I just told me kids that we need to go buy some. I love how pretty it looks. Have you seen the cover of Woman's Day (I think it's that magazine)? It is filled with great candy corn crafts.

Amy said...

I Do! Plus I'm about to have a "candy corn forest" in my front yard - 14 little wooden candy corns! Just waiting for the last coats of paint to dry! I will try and send you a pciture once they are in place.

julesandthemonty said...

I would love to have me some candy corn in the house, but...it makes my kids NUTS!

Cherri @ SmartyPantalons said...

I won't buy a bag--for just three of us a big bag is a lot of sugar. But, one of the secretaries at the campus I teach at has some, so I swing my a couple times a week in October and spoon some out. She decorates, both the walls and the tummy, for every holiday, so I can get my fix of almost any seasonal treat without having to actually bring it home from her. It's a nice system.

ricebabies said...

I don't eat them, but I do buy some, it's totally nostalgic. My son will eat them, but I mostly think of my mom because she loves them. They alo look really great in photos.

Toni Brockliss said...

I have no idea what candy corn is.
Is it corn with honey on? Or popcorn?
I will google it.
It looks good though.
xx

Toni Brockliss said...

Ok. Now I get it.
Do you know if you eat 22 pieces it equals 140 calories......

It's ok though because if you drink it with a diet drink it cancels them out. :)

Hey! I gave you a little award over at my blog! :)

Becky Farley said...

not me - they'd be gone like that *snap*
I bought a bag of Halloween candy to work this week and it's gone :)

MafiosaGrrl said...

I get a craving for them every couple of years. I found myself in line at the drugstore the other day with candy corn and toothpaste (what I actually went in for.) Ironic.

TYRaines said...

We like candy corn over here, but we really love the candy pumpkins better!

Amanda said...

Ha Ha! I posted about the same thing today only mine is candy pumpkins!

Anne said...

Can't keep it in the house. I'd eat the whole bag in an afternoon or two! YUM!

Lindsay Jewell said...

Hah. I had a bad encounter with candy corn when I was young. Haven't touched them since.

But they look cute in your photo! :)

Anna said...

We have a glass jar full of candy corn in our Halloween display. It started with a 2 pound bag and now the container is half empty...ugh, that means one whole pound of candy corn has been put into my body.
And yes, salted peanuts mixed with candy corn is the BEST!

Desiree Fawn said...

Fun fact: I've never eaten candy corn.

pinksuedeshoe said...

Candycorn = nectar of the gods. If nectar came in striped triangle bites of deliciousness.

kate said...

If by "keep in the house" you mean purchase, inhale, repeat - then yes. Definitely.

Nish said...

I fell in love with Candy Corn on a trip to the states around 7 years ago...you can't buy it in shops in England but I have found a stockist online...
Can any of you across the pond tell me, which is the best brand to buy?
My memory totally fails me most days :/

bearded girl said...

i keep candy pumpkins around the house. It's like 6 candy corn stuffed together = a beautiful thing :)

Kate said...

me! me! actually candy pumpkins but i think i like corn better. i love the mixture with peanuts or pretzels too.

Anna said...

I die for the marshmallow creme pumpkins. but I love candy corn too!
