Halloween will be here before you know it, and every shop and storefront is ready for the holiday. Spiders, ghosts, and pumpkins adorn virtually every package, and seasonal specialties have hit shelves and online stores. Candy corn is a seasonal staple, but it seems as though everyone either loves it or despises it. What’s so polarizing about this holiday candy? How do you feel about it? As you enjoy the autumn weather, grab some holiday candy from Wockenfuss and learn about candy corn, a controversial confection.

What is Candy Corn, Anyway?

Like most other confections, Candy corn derives its name from its shape and design rather than its ingredients. Candy corn is made of sugar, corn syrup, and a collection of colors and flavors to give it its signature taste and appearance. Variations have become popular in recent years, and confectioners experiment with seasonal shapes, flavors, and colors. Still, many candy corn lovers stick to the classics. Classic candy corn features melt-in-your-mouth candy with yellow, orange, and white stripes, all in a corn kernel-shaped bite.

People Have Strong Opinions on This Holiday Candy

It may seem like a strange and spooky hill to die on, but some people have incredibly strong feelings about this holiday candy. Candy corn champions contend that the taste and texture are emblematic of fall, insisting that this confection has a place in every trick-or-treater’s bag. Opponents argue — often in strong terms — that candy corn just isn’t for them. The battle over candy corn rears its head every year around this time, but one thing is certain: this Halloween treat is a fan favorite for many, and it will surely be a seasonal staple for many years to come.
