Candy Corn

Happy National Candy Corn Day!! 

Did you know that candy corn has been around for more than 100 years? George Renninger, an employee of the Wunderlee Candy Company, invented the popular confection in the 1880s and Wunderlee became the first to produce the candy. The Goelitz Candy Company (now Jelly Belly Candy Company) started producing the confection in 1900 and still produces candy corn today. When candy corn first appeared, it was popular among farmers because of its agrarian look. The tri-color design was considered revolutionary and the public went crazy for it. Lack of machinery meant that candy corn was only made seasonally from March to November. Candy corn has remained unchanged for more than 100 years and is a favorite at Halloween. Read more here...

So, in the spirit of the Halloween Season {and one of my favorite candies}, I decided to celebrate with a few ideas on how to use candy corn in fun ways!

A baby candy corn costume! {This is totally going to be my child's costume}

...and last but not least, Candy Corn Oreos!  

So, for today - grab a bag of Candy Corn {or Oreos} on your way home and help us celebrate!!
