“Turkey Dinner” Candy Corn! Is It Real? I’ve Got The Truth About Candy Corn! “What The Friday?!?!” How To Disguise It Too!

One Of The Most Controversial Sweets In History!

It’s true. Look it up.

You either love them or hate them:

CANDY CORN.

First of all, what exactly are they? Easy. They are candy bites shaped to look like a kernel of corn. So why are they so beloved and hated?

I’ll get into that, but first, I have to share something that is real, and isn’t going to make the candy corn controversy any easier:

“Turkey Dinner Candy Corn!”

Yes, it is real. Let me repeat:

IT IS REAL.

How could that be? How could so much be stuffed into one tiny, candy kernel?

Turkey Dinner Candy Corn Is Here!

It’s not a joke: instead, it’s destined to be the most debated item on your Thanksgiving table!

In an announcement that is already lighting up social media, Brach’s has announced a new flavor of Candy Corn, designed to taste like a complete Turkey dinner!

The candy corn is flavored to taste like every part of a turkey dinner, including green beans, roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, ginger-glazed carrots, sweet potato pie, and stuffing!

Dig In!

Now, is it possible for all of those flavors to be tasted in a single candy corn? Well, I bet people are going to buy them to find out! They also may be one of those “food gags” that sweeps the nation…but what exactly is a candy corn anyway?

Candy Corn Broken Down!

I had to find out exactly what was in a candy corn kernel.

It’s traditionally made with honey and corn syrup and contains roughly 28 grams of sugar per serving, it’s fat free and only 140 calories per handful.

OK, that doesn’t sound so bad. However, another website got deeper into the weeds with this:

Candy corn isn’t just sugar. It’s actually made up of several ingredients, including sugar, corn syrup, confectioner’s glaze, salt, dextrose, gelatin, sesame oil, artificial flavor, honey, yellow 6, yellow 5, and red 3. It also contains gelatin, a protein made from animal parts like hides and bones.

Um……..

OK, now that I’ve digested that, how do you eat these strangely shaped candies anyway? Well, this chart can help!

OK, that’s helpful…but what if you have someone in your family who just won’t jump on the “Candy Corn Bandwagon?”

Easy – disguise it!

“Corn On The Cob Candy Corn!”

See what they did? They tried to return it to its origin by making a “candy corn corn on the cob!”

Or how about this:

“Candy Corn Fondue!”

Well, I think this is misguided for every reason that immediately came to mind – so you see, the controversy over candy corn won’t subside anytime soon, and get ready to see this everywhere this fall:

Of course, we have a rich history of twisting natural foods into all sorts of perverted shapes and sizes, and the “Turkey Dinner Candy Corn” reminds me of THIS holiday meal:

Christmas “Tinner” In A Can!

I shared this last year, and I want to know what you think: is this entire Christmas dinner in a can real or not?

We have always enjoyed canned food: everything from soups to vegetables and more….but, what about this: remember that I ate a “Cheeseburger In A can?”

Yes, I did, and I shared the entire process with you, so if you want to know what it is, and more importantly, HOW IT TASTES, just click on my review here:

  4. Now, this is What the Friday, right? Either that, or Willy Wonka’s got some strong competition. Have a great weekend, John.

  6. I live this post, and I’m up for a taste! I’m always kind of intrigued by these bizarre interpretations of common foods. (Except for weird bug it near products))). I am a candy corn lover, I don’t really seek it out at other times of year, but once I start tasting it around Halloween….
