Candy Corn is evil. There, I said it. I won’t back down. Now, before you come at me, let me explain – I get that there are some people that think candy corn is the best part of Halloween. Freaks that you are. Then there are those of us…who just think it’s gross. I don’t even like when they throw it into trail mix. Why ruin a perfectly good trail mix?!
If you asking how I KNOW candy corn is evil? It’s made of bugs! Seriously. According to an article in USA Today, “confectioners’ glaze” that coats the colorful treat contains “lac-resin” — a goo that a tropical critter called the lac bug secretes to protect itself. I don’t care if Halloween is supposed to be scary, I’m not eating bug-covered candy. Ever. For the record: before it was called Candy Corn, the original name was Chicken Feed. Now doesn’t that sound yummy?
