Candy Corn Is Terrible

Candy Corn

Candy corn. What is that name? Whose idea was this, to pair a vegetable with the sugary treat for schoolchildren? It’s neither beast nor fowl, neither corn nor candy. It is a strange breed, maybe even a fraud. Yet despite all of this, candy corn continues to exist. Candy corn is yucky. It is waxy, brittle, and hard—yet strangely chalky, with a wiggly kind of flexibility to the mouthfeel, all at the same time. Does anyone actually like the stuff. I think they just like the colour combination.
