TWISTED TREATS / ROTTEN SWEETS

CANDY CORN

1898:Candy Corn is produced by the Herman Goelitz Confectionery Company of Fairfield, California, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. (from women’s day magazine 2011) October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds-that’s 9 billion pieces-are made each year. Like politics, the tricolor treat has American’s sharply divided, love’em or hate’em? I know that I can always eat a handful or two in October.One kernel has a mere 3.57 calories. Candy Corn is fat-free. A cup of candy corn has about as many calories as a cup of raisins. ( from family circle magazine 2011.)

Some thing else for your candy dish this October, the Hershey Kisses Pumpkin Spice are wonderful. And wrapped very festive. Enjoy!

Halloween Humor

“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on people’s doors and go, Trick or Treat, No thank you.”

—Rita Rudner
