Halloween is all about candy, right? Undoubtedly. I’m not super old or anything, but the fact of the matter is that, over the course of the last 5-7 years, the amounts of candy put out at Halloween time is just crazy, and the mad rush to get new candies out there, even crazier! Couple that with Wal-Mart and Target making their own candies, and you’ve got a real case of diabetes on your hands!
With that, we cannot review each candy separately—we would be here until Christmas, only to fall into another candy coma (it’s almost just as bad, you know Jesus and Christmas candy go hand-in-hand). So, we bring you…. CANDY CORN CORNICOPIA! Now, I didn’t eat a lot of candy corn growing up, so I hardly ever buy it now; however, I was scoping out candy for reviews in Walgreens and came across the new Starburst Candy Corn, and decided to grab a couple other flavors (rather than the original) and give it to you all at once—blow your mind. Thus, we also have S’mores and Pumpkin Spice from Brach’s. From a visual aspect, each has its own appeal, as the S’mores are made to mock S’mores colors, and so on. You know what I mean? Right.
In the end, it’s freakin’ candy corn. Each tasted okay, but the S’mores and Starburst Fruit Corn were most likely the best. The Pumpkin Spice tasted like every other pumpkin spice stuff out there (unless, you are referring to Jamba Juice’s Pumpkin Smash, which I highly endorse, because I could live off those).
These kinds of candies are clearly for individual enjoyment, as I don’t think it is wise (at least not anymore) to hand out unwrapped candy. Some jerk-off ruined that years ago. So, at only $0.99 a bag, you can totally afford to pick these up, and enjoy some, or not. Or throw them at people, or use them as teeth if yours fall out from candy consumption, or you know, whatever. I think, much like twinkles, these things may last forever!
