Poll: Do You Like Candy Corn?

Candy Corn: Love It or Hate It?

Even though it's not my favorite holiday, there are several reasons I look forward to Halloween, and one of them is candy corn. I can find only less-than-positive words to describe the waxy, cloyingly sweet, unnaturally butterscotch-y neon-covered morsels, yet once I get started, I can't stop eating them. How do you feel about the seasonal confection?

Ugh, candy corn and its cousin, the neon gummy pumpkins are among the most inedible candy known to mankind. I can't stand those things...they rank up there with those orange and black wrapped peanut butter kisses.

I hate it! My mom ate an entire bag when she was pregnant with me and got so sick. I think her aversion to it was passed on to me before I was even born!

They should slap a surgeon generals warning on it for their addiciveness. I'm not a big fan of candy corn, but once I start eating it I can't stop. My fiancee tho, loves it. I think he'd eat himself sick if he could. . . which he very well might do. lol.

Complete love, especially the autumn mix with various colors. I buy one bag a year, no harm done.

Loathe it! Candy Corn grosses me out completely.

Ew! I haven't touched the stuff since I was 10 or so. And I'm a sugar freak, so I figure they must be pretty bad. (I'm not even tempted to re-try it.)

Candy Corn is totally addictive and nothing good about it but can't stop eating it once I start. shellbelle, thanks, I think, for telling us about Caramel Apple Candy Corn, one more candy to fall for.

I'm not a massive fan of regular candy corn but I have to eat it near Halloween BUT Brach's now makes Caramel Apple Candy Corn and that stuff is truly addictive! I'm trying to forget that I have some in desk right now!

Love it! I like to stick them to my teeth so I have vampire fangs and then chase my kids around! I only eat it in October, and never eat so much to be sick, but Candy Corn rules!

I love it! They make a gourmet brand now. I agree, shoneyjoe, Lewis Black was hilarious when he did the candy corn bit! :-)

Addictive despite the fact that they really aren't the best tasting things.

OMG! I LOVE candy corn. It is honestly a legal form of drugs for me or something. I am addicted to it. I justify my overconsumption with the fact that it is mostly available during Halloween, and I don't really seek it out during the rest of the year.
