Spring Crop

I have unconditional love for Candy Corn. Some of you may recall my entry about the "New Crop" last fall. If not, you can read it here. The other day while shopping for groceries, I rounded the aisle and was bombarded with all sorts of Easter candy. As I began to stroll by, refusing to pay for overpriced specially colored M&Ms, holiday wrapped Reece's Peanut Butter Cups and Robin Eggs, I spotted a bag of pastel candy corn. At first I noticed the name, then the candy and the last and best thing, the brand - Brach's! Brach's candy corn is my favorite! 

I was skeptical of this candy corn, the size and shape was exactly the same, but somehow the flavor had to be altered due to the candy's lack of the tri-color look. It wasn't the standard yellow and orange with the white tip, but instead had a pastel bottom and white body and tip! I grabbed the bag and then put it back on the shelf. I grabbed the bag again and tossed it into my cart.

I took the bag of candy corn to work with me on Monday. (It sat unopened for an entire day in my kitchen, serious will power on my end!) A coworker and I share the love of this halloween treat. He was also skeptical of the flavor due to the change in color. I boke open the bag and we began our critical discussion about the flavor. I thought the corn tasted the same and was delicious. My coworker insisted it tasted different. I told him it was all in his head. He later agreed with me. it probably was all in his head. He didn't think it could taste the same if it didn't look the same!

So here I am, three days into the new Spring Crop and I'm ready to replenish our stock for next week!
