A Nostalgic Halloween Treat



For as long as I can remember, I have always associated this particular candy with Halloween. Quite a bit of it would end up in our trick-or-treat bags. It seems the candy dispensers (adults) liked to buy this candy to hand out to the candy takers (costumed kiddies). Maybe it’s because it’s a bit nostalgic. After all, it’s been around since the 1880’s.



If you try to find it at other times of the year, you might not be too successful, but at Halloween it’s pretty common. Here’s my stash for the holiday (thanks Dad!) – a piece or two will do - until you get to the Indian corn and then you have the mellowcreme pumpkins. It must be that time of year.

  1. I have to say though, I saw "gourmet candycorn" at target, and was a little horrified.

    I've got to go get some of the classic stuff!
