If You Don't Like Candy Corn You're A Dumb Idiot

Happy frickin’ National Candy Corn Day.


Some of this nonsense has even been perpetrated by this very Web site: here, here, and here. People call it "waxy" and "garish." They say it's "not real food." The former complaints are more simply matters of (bad, wrong) taste; the latter is nonsensical snobbery. It is real food.

Many candies are just a single color, or a variety of separate colors placed together in one bag. How many challenge themselves to present a range of colors within a single piece?
