Yum!

Candy Corn I know most of you are saying yuck, it's pure sugar, gross all the corn syrup etc..But all I'm thinking is more for me. This has to be my all time favorite candy but only during the Autumn season. I pretty much have a favorite candy for each holiday or season, I know it's a problem. I can almost hear my Mom, Sister and possibly my Hubby saying how are you going to loose weight with eating candy! Well first of all Candy Corn is fat free....HELLO and could technically count as a serving of vegetables! Corn HELLO again!

It's really not my fault I love Candy Corn. My birthday is October 30th which ironically happens to be National Candy Corn Day, so I was born to love Candy Corn.

So basically it's my Mom's fault!

I love the colors and all that candy corn represents. And now that I know it also represents your birthday, I appreciate candy corn that much more!

Are you a purest and eat only the yellow/orange combo or do you venture into the pinks and blues? ;)

Was this a gift from the States? I'm guessing its not available where you live! I'm not a big fan myself - but I don't mind the Indian corn version with the (fake) chocolate bit.

Well we need your address to send some good American Candy Corn to Germany and some fun treats.
My Brother shares the same day and it always is fun to "spook" him out!

They may as well just change the name to candy crack for me. I cannot stop eating it once I start. I have been known to down a bag at a time...and yes, I do regret it right after.

Oh, and if it is the kind that has the "chocolate" end...forget it, I may as well just dump it all into a bowl and go sit in a corner.

This is hilarious! Love the way you make the extra serving of veggies happen....
I feel about that with chocolate.
Nice to see your German expirience through your American eyes.
have a great time and enjoy your stay.
I believe halloween is getting more attention in germany now, maybe candy corn is coming???

Liebe Gruesse!

I love candy corn too!

If your family gives you any more crap about not losing any weight eating candy corn quote this line from the movie Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion.
"I've been trying this new fat free diet I invented. All I've had to eat the past 6 days is gummy bears, jelly beans and candy corns."

Voice of reason here....
Fat free, but VERY calorie high. I love candy corn too, but agree it is like crack. Careful now.

I am such a sugar addict and candy corn is one of my favorites! I could eat it by the bag. Maybe some day I'll come to Germany and we can chow down together!
