'Tis the Season: Candy Corn

'Tis the season for candy corn. This week I will be posting candy corn-esque things. (If you post anything candy corn-esque this week, leave a link in the comments.)

Don't you just love the abnormal candy corns? Right before I spotted this pair, I gave an all-yellow piece to Sawyer to eat. Honestly, when I'm shoving them into my mouth by the handfuls, I'm not always paying attention to the individual traits of each piece. So it's kind of rare for me to even notice them.

An all-time family fave is candy corn + salted peanuts. Look out! This is dangerous. It takes like a PayDay bar, but better. Especially if the candy corn is fresh and soft. I ate a few handfuls as a pre-run snack on Saturday. It probably wasn't the best fuel, but it sure was tasty.

Lera, I found a new treat at Target yesterday that you might enjoy. It is yogurt covered pretzel balls, m&ms, candy corn and peanuts. It is in the halloween candy aisle.

You know I can't see candy corn without thinking of you!

My friend's daughter is going as a candy corn for Halloween this year and I immediately wondered if she'd have a hat like that.

Too funny.
