Candy corn is evil and vile.. but I have a bag of it, along with those little pumpkins, on my desk at home even now. I know after I eat a few I'll be reminded of exactly why I don't like the way they taste.. but, it's very easy to forget after you stop eating them for a few minutes and think to yourself "Hmm.. I could just snag a couple pieces of candy corn.."
Ugh. I hate candy corn. To the point, actually, where I won't even eat it. I guess I should consider myself lucky. :)

For you candy corn is how I feel about Peeps. I can't imagine how people even put them in their mouths.
But its not over at Halloween, you know.
Cause then you have the Halloween leftovers. And if you have kids like I do, that can last for weeks.
Then there's the ramp-up for Christmas.
And then the holidays in general.
And after Christmas.
We lose more healthy lifestyles this way.
Most of the rest of it, I can resist quite well. I don't know what it is with candy corn.
The little candy pumpkins are one of my primary sources of Halloween joy, so I foresee late-onset SAD should I ever get diabetes. :P
OMG me too!!! I love it. Pumpkins, not corn. :P And nip off the green stems first. :)
As someone who just ate mass amounts of candy corn and now feels very, very ill... I know what you mean. :P
Candy corn - I don't know why everyone thinks they're so bad. I love them! Massive sugar overload in tiny pellet form.
The entire batch of Candy Corn was created in 1935, and every year Brachs sends out employees to dig it out of the dumpster and re-package it to sell it again..
/ no apologies to Lewis Black
Do they dig up all the fruitcake at the same time?
I simply MUST find Candy Corn
I only like candy corn for one thing... plunging my canines into them and pretending I'm a vampire with horrific tooth care!
I absolutely LOVE candy corn... it is one of my favourite candies, and I rejoice every time halloween comes around. I love the mellow sweetness as they fall apart in my mouth, creating mild-flavoured sweet paste of WONDERFULNESS.
But then, I have odd tastes. Good luck in your mission to avoid the halloween candy, milady. I admire your self-restraint. :-)
Stop! You're killing me!!!

Candy corn is your weakness, too!?!??!?!
My method of candy corn procurement.
Find a pack of active children, preferably those who belong to overworked parents. Escort children around while trick-or-treating, usually until it feels like your legs are going to fall off and the children have slight dents in their energy level.
Go home and trade the kids chocolate for their candy corn. Eat only what you can trade for. :)
Not a bad plan. But I don't have any trick-or-treat aged little buddies but one, and she's too little for a successful haul.
See, I can pass up candy corn, though I'm fond of it. The hardest part for me is Easter, with the Cadbury caramel eggs. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Yes! The Cadbury eggs are so tempting...and it seems that every store has a display right up front...and they start putting them out so early now!!!
They are one of my major weaknesses too!
Yikes, they have exactly the same effect on me. I wish I knew why! *sigh*
I think it's a secret ingredient. Maybe Soylent Green.
