I Don't Like Candy Corn...

I was watching TV this morning with my four year old and I look up to see a Moose in a Mummy costume singing a Halloween kids Song "I don't like candy corn, no I don't like candy corn" . Let me tell Mr. Moose A. Moose I agree with you a 110% Yuck! candy corn looks cool, and it's great to decorate with but that's about it in my book. The only exception and the only way I can stomach these things is mixed in a bowl with dry roasted salted peanuts 80% peanuts 20% corn then you kind of have that nut roll flavor. A friend came over one day and I had been cooking and he noticed my dog under the kitchen table licking himself and he kinda laughed, I told him to ignore the dog I was decorating a Halloween cake with some candy corn and some fell on the floor and the dog ate them... he's trying to get the taste out of his mouth!

  I don't just pick on candy corn as a holiday item I don't like. I don't like Chestnuts roasted over an open fire, great song but taste gross. Apple Salad - Ok I love apples, I love nuts. but when Gramma mixes mayonnaise, nuts, apples, cool whip and mini marshmallows together and calls it yummy.. uh uh... No way!
Other than that the sky's the limit as to what I will eat or cook during the holly dazed season. Ok there is my wife's families traditional spiced Christmas cookie recipe they make every year... EVERY year... I asked them if they would mind if I tried revamping (make edible) the recipe so that non blood relatives might be able to eat them without gagging... well, I guess the recipe will stay the same because I never ever want to see or hear the sight and sound of an old lady hyperventilating and clutching her chest while calling me the spawn of Satan while trying to boot me out of my own kitchen again. Some people just hate change...

"No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers."

Happy Cooking,

My boys watch Moose A. Moose, I think is on Noggin channel. Both of my kids do not eat any candy, not even chocolate. I always hear other mothers complaining about their kids eating too much candy during the halloween, I'm glad I don't have to worry about this.

I hate candy corn too. It is an invention of the devil. Or at least the French.

I agree, candy corn is yukky! However, I did enjoy the quote regarding cooking. I'll have to make a note of that one.
 
Oct. 25, 2009 1:51 pm
I've seen Moose A. Moose singing this one as well. Got a big kick out of it. I must concur with Moose on this one too! Not a candy corn fan.

Although, I have to say that I kind of like the song, I absolutely do NOT like candy corn. I just saw some in the store and wondered why they still make it. Go Moose A. Moose!

I'm with you on all counts. Just the thought of Apple Salad makes my mouth water- and not in a good way. I'll have to trust you on the spiced Christmas cookies...

Chocolate covered candy corn is wonderful!!
 
Oct. 26, 2009 8:48 am
Another reason not to watch Noggin, LOL! My daughter tends to take her cues from her TV friends, and if they say they dont like something, she wont eat anything for a week! And besides, I actually don't mind candy corn, call me a rebel.
 
Oct. 26, 2009 9:17 am
Too funny, thanks for the laugh! Candy corn is for decoration or throwing, what a waste of calories. I love your photo's and the sourdough bread is perfect. I stopped making it after hubby went gluten free, I miss it when I make sandwiches. Thanks for the nice blog!
 
Oct. 26, 2009 7:42 pm
HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE CANDY CORN! granted, its pure sugar and all the stuff you should never ever eat, but its SOO YUMMY! good thing i only eat it at halloween sometimes... btw, comedian Lewis Black has a bit on candy corn you may like.
 
Oct. 26, 2009 7:49 pm
I didn't think I liked candy corn . . .until I tried caramel candy corn. My horse loves them, too. He'll beg and plead until I offer-up a handful. And he'll start asking for more before he even swallows his first allotment.
 
Oct. 26, 2009 7:54 pm
ok I know nothing about this show but one thing I do know is I have always enjoyed candy corn. PEEPS on the other hand. Throw that recipe out!!!
 
Oct. 26, 2009 8:39 pm
Sorry I just had to send a little comment. My kids too watch noggin. I don't know which is worse the darn candy corn or that song. It has been stuck in my head for 3 days now. hehehehe
 
Oct. 26, 2009 9:51 pm
Gotta love moose a moose, other than the simple fact they have been showing that same dang song for 3 years or better. All I have to say is, Moose give it a break we know you don't like candy corn go tell it to someone else!!!
 
Oct. 26, 2009 11:15 pm
I don't think that anyone actually likes candy corn, lol! As the great angry comedian Lewis Black stated, "They haven't made candy corn since 1911. After every Halloween the candy companies dig through the dumpsters, find the uneaten candy corn, wash it and then repackage it."

I like candy corn. But the blog title made me giggle and start singing the song in my head.

Candy Corn is the best!! When my childern were little, I would check their trick or treat bags and sneak out the candy corn. They never knew.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 3:08 am
Very funny blog! And so true as somes things never change... like my mother trying new recipe each time we come... Mum!!! We're not guinea-pig!!! lol @Marty We don't even have candy corn, sirup corn or other corn stuff in France!!!! lol We're not really fan of corn in France... we always call it "chicken's food"... maybe we should try to feed them with candy corn ;-)

My kids love that song! :) My 6 year old loves candy corn - as do I - but the 5 year old prefers chocolate. My grandma loves it, so it also brings back great memories!

Oct. 27, 2009 6:07 am
I concur as well - Candy Corn is evil and I don't understand why ppl salivate over it. One is enough to celebrate the season and if I don't see it again for a year - well then it's too soon. I wonder - do you have the same relationship with peeps???? Because I do.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 6:12 am
Voice of dissent! CANDY CORN IS AWESOME! I love it. I love the way it makes my teeth ache! I guess I'm just a kid at heart. However, the "Candy Corn Soda" from Jones Soda Co. is NASTY. Even my 5 year old (who also loves 'da corn) wouldn't drink it.

I purchase candy corn every year when it comes out in stores. We eat a few pieces, and I usually throw the rest away. It's too sweet and hurts my teeth! I still can't figure out why I keep buying it...it must be for looks! In fact, I have a bag right here that will be trashed very soon!
 
Oct. 27, 2009 6:28 am
Ladybugg, I know, every year I wonder if they'll have a new Halloween song, but nope! But honestly I love the song, always gets me in a Halloween mood. BUT...I don't like candy corn. :)
 
Oct. 27, 2009 7:28 am
Just sitting here eating some candy corn. Love that pure unadulterated sugar. One of the few people that love it. Hearing lots of people hating on it this year. That's ok. More for me! Circus peanuts, on the other hand are NASTY.

I have to agree that candy corn is probably the worst candy invented - by my highest vote for horrible candy are the marshmallow peeps which they now try to disguise for every holiday - YECK!

Funny! Candy corn I can live without but apple salad...never! I could eat it three meals a day!

Funny story..I guess I can eat candy corn, although I will not buy it. I usually end up throwing it out because it doesnt get eaten.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 10:20 am
PEEPS! I forgot about peeps! Oh I hate thos lil pink and yellow things. Peeps should be given out at Halloween because they are the Devil!
 
Oct. 27, 2009 10:41 am
I will agree on the candy corn, peeps, and apple salad and raise you circus peanuts and spiced orange slices. GROSS!!!

Candy corn, the only way is in a mix with peanuts, M & M's and Bugles chips. That cuts the sweet. My Mother one year tried roasting chestnuts over the fire cause she liked the song and thought it would be a neat thing to do. She had a wire basket with a lid and a long handle. She put the chestnuts in the basket, closed the lid but did not do one important step. She did not put an x or criss cross marks on the bottom of the chestnuts to allow the steam to escape. Needless to say that was the last time for roasting chestnuts, they exploded in the basket. We thought it was neat and exciting. Apple salad (Waldorf Salad) with raisins and nuts and mayo, no marshmellow pleaseeeeeeeee is great!
 
Oct. 27, 2009 12:23 pm
Wow, you people are awfully hostile about your disdain for candy corn! I know it is a matter of opinion as to whether or not you like something, but I really feel like you're missing out! Especically now that they've got all kinds of neat-o candy corn flavors like caramel apple, berry, chocolate, etc. I'm guessing that those of you who do nto like candy corn are the same people that make desserts from this website and then complain that dessert is too sweet. Lighten up. Eat some candy corn and work off your sugar high in a mildly debaucherous activity.

I've never been a fan of candy corn either, even as a kid. The only reason I ever ate them was because I liked trying to bite them exactly where the colors separated. As for Peeps, I love them when they're slightly stale. :) I don't like them when they're fresh and mushy.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 12:47 pm
I remember trying candy corn for the first time as a kid & thinking they were someone's idea of a cruel, pointless prank on gluttonous children. However, I wouldn't hold anything against those who do or do not enjoy it themselves...talk about pointless. That song always makes me smile though, along with "Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer" :o)
 
Oct. 27, 2009 12:52 pm
I LOVE candy corn!!! This time of year makes me happy because of the beautiful weather and the candy corn. 'Used to work on Guam and we had a hard time finding the good kind (Brach's). 'Had people ship it in sometimes. YUMMY! 'Even found a recipe for it. I agree Michelle...silly blog but oh so much fun. Peeps?? YUCK!
 
Oct. 27, 2009 2:16 pm
I totally agree, candy corn is yuck..it reminds me of like rotten teeth or something so nasty!
 
Oct. 27, 2009 3:11 pm
amen i hate candy corn. and i would have loved to see the look on that lady's face when u told her that. i too have some pretty stubborn in laws and as far as the kitchen goes i own it. if they wanna tell me how to cook they can get out of it and use their own. :-D my husband agrees 100 percent. if its not good i don't cook it.

Oct. 27, 2009 3:28 pm
I love everything there is to eat, and totally so, however, I have never acquired a taste for candy corn. It is the most awful concoction I have ever tried. Can't believe there is so much of it made. There was a program about it on t.v. last week telling how it is made and how popular it is. Just one piece makes me grimace.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 3:32 pm
I confess I LOVE candy corn (and circus peanuts!)
 
Oct. 27, 2009 3:41 pm
Candy Corn is delicious!. Put it a closed paper bag with spiced wafers in the orange box, apples and oranges over night and the wafers get soft and wonderful.
 
Oct. 27, 2009 4:30 pm
ummm...okay, I LOVE candy corn!! I know, I am so ashamed to admit it!!!! LOL..
 
Oct. 27, 2009 4:36 pm
i dont like candy corn or those cicus peanut things they are really orange and downright nasty

*laughing* My boyfriend's a huge candy corn fan; his favorite kind is the pumpkins, but he can only find them this year in the assortment that comes with regular corn and chocolate corn. Since he doesn't eat chocolate, he's saving them for me... I get the feeling I'll still be staring at the tub in horror next October.

Candy corn IS rather gross. So are those peanut candy, too sweet, airy, orange things. My mother loved both. Give me the mini chocolate variety pack!
 
Oct. 28, 2009 3:55 am
Candy corn, Peeps and Circus Peanuts (not the real peanuts, the large, gross candy ones) are evil. 'Nuff said...

Candy corn is gross....unless you actually like chopping on granulated sugar!!! Keep it - and give me a "kiss"!!

There are foods that I don't like, but candy corn is not one of them! I don't enjoy eggplant! Grits are still hard to me to choke down, too. But, there are lots of foods that I do like! Like candy corn!
 
Oct. 28, 2009 7:34 am
I hate candy corn, and those darned pumpkins that are just like 'em! My in laws ALL love candy corn and think I'm the wierd one. =) I can hear my husband rustling in the cabinet for them, like a squirrel, since I must hide it from him.

In MO we don't put mayo with our fruit! yuck. Apple Salad is made with apples, grapes, nuts and real whipped cream that you have to make yourself, not the kind in a tub. Now that's yummy. And candy corn - I can take it or leave it, but most of the time I leave it.
 
Oct. 28, 2009 12:49 pm
So, candy corn, peeps, circus peanuts, I can take 'em or leave 'em, but no one has mentioned how disgusting nerds are. Maybe because they don't belong to a holiday? But neither do circus peanuts. Try cream cheese instead of mayo in your waldorf salad and add some crushed pinapple, crasins and pecans.

I love candy corn. I buy them all year long. Halloween time rocks because they come in bigger bags. Candy corn is better than most candies because it's made with honey and has no fat in it. Delish! Oh and the candy corn pumpkins and Autumn corn....NOT THE SAME! They taste totally different. As for Peeps....Irishblue 82 I agree! That is one treat I will never understand.
 
Oct. 28, 2009 1:51 pm
Right, CaliMom - no Peeps for me (Sorry Deb) Candy corn: I can take it or leave it but I never buy it. Love the cooking quote! Someone should have put that on the quilt!

Moose A. Moose for president! I laughed until I cried when I heard his candy corn song--at least he shares....When I was in sixth grade, I was eating a piece of candy corn when the pointed end when straight into a cavity that I didn't know that I had. OUCH!! That resulted in a root canal.....nuf' said. Love stale Peeps ! Can't stand the french bean mushroom soup casserole that EVERYBODY makes at Thanksgiving....Other than that I'm open for most anything :)
 
Oct. 28, 2009 2:42 pm
Kay C and BOBBIEFRED I like your Apple Salad Ideas... I would eat those! And anniecotton thx for the *gag* reminder of french bean mushroom soup casserole... I have friggen goose bumps and shivers down my spine remembering that concoction!

We love the candy corn song, and my kids look forward to it every year now. However, we all LOVE candy corn! I've been devouring a bag of it as we speak. I had to pull enough out to decorate with or they'd all be gone. lol I love the lil candy pumpkins too.

Candy Corn is a much maligned holiday treat, but I think its delicious. It sure beats the pants off Peeps!
 
Oct. 28, 2009 2:56 pm
Indian corn tastes a little better than candy corn. I sometimes may buy a bag of Indian corn for the season, but never candy corn. I will eat candy corn if there is some of it around, it is okay. I will eat pretty much anything that is sweet. ;)

My Mom likes Boston Baked Beans and Brach's Maple Nut Goodies......I can't stomach those two things.

Ok I DO like candy corn (in small amounts). But I like fruitcake too! And let's not forget Zee likes c.c. too. My 3 y.o. likes c.c. but not many other dessert-ey things (which is just fine). I've noticed not all candy corn is created equal. Brachs is the kind I usually find but it doesn't taste as good as some others I sample that usually seem to be given out in bulk (maybe they tasted better 'cuz they were free!).

Candy corn is the worst candy of Halloween. Just like fruit cake is to Christmas. Don't forget the chewy candy in the black and orange wax paper. As a kid I threw them out first. Yuck!!!
 
Oct. 28, 2009 6:56 pm
I NEVER liked candy corn -- even as a kid! The only use for them were to try to make tri-colored vampire teeth by shoving them on on my canines! (it usually took several tries to get 2 without breaking them)

Oct. 28, 2009 7:26 pm
I use the candy corn as a nose or beak for my fall OWL cookies (made with peanut butter dough, shaped like a great horned and candy corn beaks with m&m brown eyes) Kids love these. I also like to eat just the white tips of the candy corn. It is almost pure sugar! (no gross yellow or orange flavor) And those peanut butter candies in black and orange wax papers were my second favorite after bulls eyes (caramel with white centers)...
 
Kim 
Oct. 28, 2009 11:50 pm
I too always liked to stick 'em on my teeth as a kid at Halloween. Never liked the taste..or the texture. I have never been big on candy, period, however, so I'd be willing to say that might be my problem. ;) P.S. Peeps are gross, too.
 
Kim 
Oct. 28, 2009 11:51 pm
Yes, those giant orange peanuts are the work of the devil, too.
 
Oct. 29, 2009 4:17 am
I hope this is to the person who hates candy corn. I used to love candy corn. Its made with honey and tasted buttery to me (yes, I'm another butter nut)This year, however, I noticed Brach's messed with the candy corn. It's just sugary. The buttery taste is gone. They've lost me as a customer. I've never found a candy corn to compare to Brach's, so, no more candy corn for me. (Didn't need it anyway)

In addition to candy corn, I also despise marshmallow peeps and those peach colored things that are supposed to look like a big peanut in the shell - maybe they were only around when I was a kid and they don't make them any more, so be glad you missed them. Our local Greek restaurant hands out little hard candies that taste like liquorice. My husband tries to pawn them off as "treats" on the grandkids, who make a terrible face and spit them into his hand. HaHaHa.

Candy corn is foul and disgusting, gritty waxy hard and crunch yet soft and chewy yed sugar. Blechhhhhh.

this is for marty the martian..... it was in fact a german candy company in cincinnati that invented the gross little confections. i'll kindly as you to leave us frenchmen alone!!!

That song is in my head all day long. I hear it once and there it is all day. Love it. I hate candy corn too. My 4 yr old daughter is convinced she does too even though she has never tried it. I am going to try to persuade her to give it a try this year. I hope I don't ruin candy for her since I try to be a good mommy and make candy just a special treat (a little hard around this time of year with a 13 yr old who loves the stuff--I am a chocoholic myself). She has a texture issue so the graininess may be a problem. It feels like it was some sort of botched recipe and ended up all grainy. I don't like those circus peanuts either. Yuck.
 
Oct. 29, 2009 9:49 am
Candycorn,I can take it or leave it but for some reason it always finds its way to our candy dish around Halloween; the kids enjoy it and so does the hubster... I prefer the candy pumpkins that sometimes come in the mix; last Halloween my dh showed me the trick of mixing the candy corn and peanuts... Wahlah! A Payday candy bar in your mouth. I bought a bag of the Carmel Apple candy corn the other day and could only eat one!.. Yuck, now those were disgusting!..
 
Oct. 29, 2009 9:50 am
Ohhhh almost the most important thing about candy corn... Placing them under your top lips; one on each side and you are now a vampire!.. :)

Oct. 29, 2009 11:37 am
Even as a kid, I could only enjoy two, maybe three tops and then it was sugar over-load. I consider them a non-edible decoration. Very pretty sitting in a glass candy dish in the fall. I always thought the circus peanuts were foul- in total agreement there, and Peeps! Hehe... . My dad is a huge fan, so my sister, brother and I got a TON of them every Easter. None of us really liked them. I hate marshmallow unless it's toasted on a s'more and I thought they were way too cute to bite the head off of ( I became a vegetarian @ 14, lol) , so of course, we'd give them to my dad. When my sister and I were teenagers, we discovered it was hilarious to put the peeps in the microwave. They get HUGE :D Give me chocolate over shaped sugar any day!
 
Oct. 29, 2009 12:23 pm
candycorn i can take or leave. those candy pumpkins however are my own personal brand of crack.....
 
Oct. 29, 2009 12:53 pm
Oh my goodness, I had that song stuck in my head for the last few days....my 4 yr old works the laptop on the kitchen island and I've been hearing that song for days as I'm cooking. It's as catchy and annoying as .."it's a small world after all..."

"I would even eat my own feet. I bet they'd taste much better." Go Moose!
 
Oct. 29, 2009 2:05 pm
I know that song.. I was singing it in my head when I was going candy shopping.. However I can only eat a little bit of candy corn at a time. And those pumpkins, i don't know what it is about them but I can't put them down! I know they are basically the same thing as candy corn but the taste different because they are pumpkins!
 
Oct. 29, 2009 2:34 pm
candy corn is so gross, but hershey's candy corn kisses are really good!!

Oct. 29, 2009 2:55 pm
I completely agree! Candy Corn should be called Nasty Corn and the Apple Salad is pretty yucky aswell. I thought I was the only one that felt this way. I also never want to hear that song about Candy Corn either. Thats a brain worm that I dont need stuck in my head for a life time. Atleast not this one anyway. I have also encountered thee In-Law gross food problem. Apparently I cant do anything about it. Just grin and bare it. Yeah its Christmas soon where I get to eat bland and tasteless food from the In-Laws home. YEY ME!

Is apple salad at all like Ambrosia? I like marshmallows allright, like in my lucky charms or S'more's goldfish (super yum) but Its totally disgusting to mix marshmallows with mayonaise or mirale whip. GroSS!!! BTW...LOVE CANDY CORN!!!

Wax "corn" with refined white sugar and yellow lake #2 and red lake #1 or whatever is only useful for hastening the arrival of cancer and rotting teeth out. Maybe you could use them for crayons though if you can find someone with a small enough hand. And yes, I concur that the circus peanuts and peeps are skank. You might as well just grab a bag of sugar and add some chemicals to it and then start spooning it into your facehole without regard for taste/texture.

About Me
I grew up in California. I attended Culinary school and have always enjoyed cooking.My wife and I love hosting family get togethers and we always try different foods and themes. Good food, good friends and good Wine... what more could one ask for!
My favorite things to cook
Steak De Burgo is my wifes favorite dish that I make.I probably enjoy baking breads more than anything
My favorite family cooking traditions
CHRISTMAS! Thats what cooking is all about. We pull out all the stops. We Usually host a Christmas Eve gathering and on Christmas Day we have a wonderful breakfast with pastries, breads, cookies, assorted meats and sweets.
My cooking triumphs
My first family gathering that I hosted... Everyone raved about the cornish game hens I cooked followed by a huge English Sherry Trifle... good time.
My cooking tragedies
I made a big Italian dinner but got a late start on my Tiramisu dessert... it didn't have enough time to set up. We had played up how good this dessert was going to be and it was almost runny... depressing!
