Candy corn doesn't taste like anything of this world. Even vile candy like Starburst and Skittles — things loaded with strange synthetic flavors and food-dye that's banned overseas — those at least pretend to be modeled after natural flavors. But candy corn is not 'candy corn.' It is tri-color candy compressed into a madman's idea of what corn looks like. It is corn-chip Fun Dip, and a bottle of high fructose corn syrup spilled in the pantry. The only candy worse, and I'm guessing worse for you, is the circus peanut. But at least we're done with candy corn for the rest of 2013.
