Candy corn. About twenty million pieces of this stuff are sold annually.
It was first marketed as a year-round candy except the ads started running in newspapers the first week of October, so people began to equate candy corn with Halloween. Even though there has been a push to develop Christmas and Valentine’s Day candy corn, nothing sells like the original “Halloween edition.”
I had a different image picked out for today’s blog post, but figured since today was Halloween, why not go with something fun? In Chicago rain is forecast all day and night, which will put a damper of festivities, but hopefully the kids will be out in full force.
If not, I’ll need some helping eating all of this candy.
