Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind, is back again as our host for the Truthful Tuesday prompt. In honor of Halloween month, Melanie wants to know…
How do you feel about candy corn. She says, “Hate it, love it, it’s one of those things seen around a specific time of year and everyone has an opinion one way or another it seems.”
I remember that when I was a kid I used to love candy corn and couldn’t wait until Halloween season when all of the stores had loads of candy corn on their shelves. I’m not sure when, exactly, I grew out of my craving for candy corn, but it’s been decades since I last had any.
Until last year, when my son bought a bunch of individually-sized bags of candy corn to hand out to trick-or-treaters. I was hit with a rush of nostalgia. I said to my son, “I used to love these when I was a kid,” and he tossed me a bag and encouraged me to open it and eat the candy corn.
I put two or three pieces in my mouth and thought, Eww, these are disgusting. So that is how I feel about candy corn now. I don’t love it. I don’t hate it. I just won’t eat it anymore.
Unless someone comes out with cannabis-infused candy corn. Then I might reconsider. In the meantime, I’ll stick with fun-sized Snickers to give to our trick-or-treaters.
