Candy Corn Tops List Of Most Popular Halloween Candy
Today, October 30th, is National Candy Corn Day and it just happens to top the list of the most popular candy for Halloween. This little brightly colored candy was created in the 1880′s by the Wunderlee Candy Company and each piece is approximately three times larger than an actual kernel of corn. It also happens to be one of my favorite Halloween candies, however, my wife found a variation of this popular candy in the store the other day that’s become one of my faves, taffy candy corn.
Now, with Halloween arriving tomorrow, trick or treating is on the minds of a lot of kids and getting the most candy that they can in one night. The National Confectioners Association estimates that we’ll spend $2.4 billion collectively on candy for Halloween tomorrow night. Besides candy corn, other candies that are among the most popular this year are Snickers, Kit Kat bars, Sour Patch Kids and M&M’s.
