It’s National Candy Corn Day!

Bulk Candy Corn for National Candy Corn Day | BlairCandy.com

Candy corn…you either love it or you hate it! Regardless of how you feel about it, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day! Grab a handful of this classic fall candy and check out some facts about it that you may not have known about:

Candy Corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger and the Wunderle Candy Company, but later mass produced by Goelitz Candy Company, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. Originally, candy corn had to be made by hand, each color being added on separately and molded into shape. Because of how time consuming this was, they decided to make this a seasonal candy, like how crops were harvested seasonally. With this and the shape, Candy Corn came to be.

Since then, Candy Corn has been made into different variations. Kernels with brown tops, called Indian Corn for Thanksgiving, and even red and green “corn” for Christmas. This “mellocreme” candy has also been made into pumpkins. Regardless of what it’s been made into, over 35 million pounds will be made this fall. That’s roughly 9 billion kernels will go into candy dishes and treat bags. You’ll even find candy corn flavored products, from cookies, drinks, even bagels!
