Fall Harvest

It's fall. It's lovely. The leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp but the sun is warm on your face. Pumpkins and apples are being harvested and it's candy corn season! I LOVE Candy Corn!

As we all know, every year retail stores seem to display seasonal candy and merchandise way earlier than we want. Back to school items are showing up in July, Halloween and Thanksgiving items in August, and Christmas items before Halloween! Well, every year, i see my first bag of candy corn and resist purchasing it because I know it's "early." I did the same thing this season until my co-worker broke down and bough a bag. We polished it off in a day, so I had to replace his crop. I bought the big bag and I think we polished that bag off in two days. After that, my addiction calmed down, or my body was so overloaded with sugar, the craving for candy corn ceased.

While strolling the aisles of the grocery store, I noticed what I like to call "special edition" candy corn flavors. I was amazed and in awe. I had to have them ALL! There were three different flavors, and they came in these cute square plastic tubs. I bought one of each and the taste test began at work.

The three flavors are made by Brach's, which is the candy corn I prefer to eat. I will eat any other brand, but I feel that Brach's is by far the best. They are: Caramel Apple, Caramel and Chocolate Caramel. The chocolate caramel is by far the best, not only because of its flavor, but because of its softness and texture. I'd pick the caramel apple next because it does taste like a caramel apple and finally, the caramel. But in the end, I prefer the classic orange, yellow and white candy corn.
