What is candy corn?
Candy corn is a confection in the United States and Canada, popular primarily around Halloween. Candy corn was created in the 1880s by George Renninger. The three colors of the candy – a broad yellow end, a tapered orange center, and a pointed white tip – mimic the appearance of kernels of corn. They are made primarily from sugar, corn syrup, wax, artificial coloring and binders.
Some people think that normal candy corn tastes like over the top vanilla and can become quite sickly, however these are a different type of candy corn…
Starburst has mimic the same colouring with theirs except each section has its own juicy flavour that bursts in the mouth when you take a bite. Each candy corn piece is differently layered with each flavour to create different flavour combinations whilst chewing. The have the same texture and waxy feel as normal candy corn, but the flavours beats over the top vanilla hands down. The flavours are strong and each can be identified from one another. Each balance one another out beautifully when combined together. Lemon creates a long zingy after taste, but is pleasant and not sickly at all. These will easily get eaten during a party. Easily munchable.
