Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
THANKSGIVING CANDY CORN
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to look at a candy that celebrates this time of year. This year the company Brach’s decided to release a brand new product called Turkey Dinner Candy Corn.
Why eat a whole meal when you can eat a candy that tastes of the same thing? That is basically the concept behind the sweet, apparently this particular Candy Corn creates ‘a full course meal in a unique mix of candy corn flavours.’ The flavours included in the pack are roast turkey, green beans, ginger glazed carrots, stuffing, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie. The product can be bought in a 12oz bag in local Walgreens.
According to one reviewer they apparently taste really bad. The only one that tastes good is the cranberry one.
