Something New

One of the best things about this time of year is Brach's candy corn. I like to eat them color by color. First, I bite off the yellow layer, then the orange, saving the white tips for last. The white tips are a bit too sweet for my taste.


Have you seen these? We were at Target yesterday, and I spotted this new candy corn. Caramel is one of my favorite flavors, so I had to try it. I like them. There's not much white tip to them, which suits me just fine.



I have a blogging buddy named Elizabeth who is gearing up for a big celebration. She will soon be marking her second year since she had a bone marrow transplant; she calls it her second birthday! She's planning on several giveaways. Check it out.

Don't miss the BOOK GIVEAWAY on my other blog Book Critiques.

I feel deprived now! I don't think I've EVER had that stuff, or even seen it in shops! I'm guessing candy corn is related to Halloween, right? If it is, that might explain it, since Halloween isn't really a very big deal in NZ.

The caramel one looks good though, what is the other flavour, orange/lemon or something?

Good Morning Sally
I love that candy corn too. hmmmm I pop that whole candy or 2 into my mouth and never realized there was a difference in the taste in the colour as you bit along it. See that goes to show we eat that darn candy differently. I'll have to pay attention to that.

We don't have that brand of candy and I haven't seen any that colour. It looks good too though.

Now you'll have me stopping to buy some. Yum!

Have a lovely day.

I'm afraid to get the new candy corn...I might eat the whole bag myself. LOL

Brown-Eyes said...

Morning Sally...well now, I guess one never gets too old to learn something...LOL I'm not a really big fan of the regular candy corn, perhaps because I didn't try to eat it in layers...I think I'd like that caramel variety though.

Joanna said...

We're starting to think alike. :) I just posted my Thursday blog... seems we picked the same title. How funny is that? My DH came home with a bag of candy corn. I love them. But it seems this year, they are so sweet. But I'm sure it's just me. xoxo, Joanna

Ok it looks delish but I never had it. Is it made from real corn, cuz the kernels look extra large!

ellen b. said...

I'm not a big fan of regular candy corn; but,ooh,that carmel stuff looks pretty good! Sally

Jeanne said...

Sally, I think I'll try your instructions on my dh. He just loves my instructions. NOT. Thanks for your humor and your visit, I needed a chuckle. I am in my bedroom supposed to be napping. I am enjoying sneaking some computer time. Smile.

Hugs...Jeanne

daisy said...

Oh, we are cut from the same cloth! At least as far as candy corn goes. I eat it the same way! That is so funny!

I love that you're watching DWTS too, cuz I learn something more every time you come visit and comment. It is my most favorite show. I just hope I don't dis someone who you like...maybe I shouldn't blog about it when I'm PMS-ing because then everyone just gets on my last nerve. Ha!

I love candy corn and look forward to this time of year all year long. I've already bought a bag, but I've been good and have not opened it yet. I am a bit of a purist when it comes to my candy corn, so I'm not sure I'd like the caramel ones. :(

Coloradolady said...

My daughter loves candy corn....myself not so much. In fact, not at all. But I think it looks very pretty in a glass candy jar this time of year. I have never tried the carmel ones, but with candy corn in the name, I'd probably pass.

Malphi said...

Sounds yummy!...shame we don't have it in the UK,

bj said...

I LOVE IT !! I have regular Candy Corn, Caramel Candy Corn and Chocolate Candy Corn out in little bowls all over the house! And, just as soon as we eat all of it...Dollar General is about one block from my house and they have TONS of CANDY CORN!!
love, bj

I will visit your friend Elizabeth.I have just passed my

Charli and me said...

Oh my gosh I love those things! I'm the only one in my family that does. I eat them just like you do but I eat the whole peice of candy. I use them for noses on my Halloween cupcakes.

imjacobsmom said...

Just what I need - another type of candy. I love the candy corn. Now there's caramel. Mmmm! ~ Robyn

John Mutford said...

I thought people who ate those were like Celine Dion fans. You know they're out there, you just never meet one.

ROXY said...

Yummy, who knew they made carmel candy corn?? Not me! I will have to go out and grab some for Honey. He loves candy corn and carmel!!

nikkicrumpet said...

hmmm I'm thinking I need me some of those carmel ones! Have a great "white tipless" day!

Melissa's Cozy Tea Time Readings said...

I love candy corn and I try and look for the candy corn scented candles at the craft stores too!

Bridget said...

How is the candy corn holding up? I need to get some to try that one color at a time technique!

Cathy said...

The new kind of candy does look good. I can't buy those bags of candy, because I have no willpower!

Killlashandra said...

The aisles of Wal-Mart are filled with candy. However, you're right candy corn is the best one to come out halloween. ;) You have to eat it bit by little bit. LOL

Erin said...

I love candy corn! I eat them from the white end down, though. Especially the chocolate ones...I really like the brown part. I'll have to look for the caramel ones!

barbarah said...

I hadn't seen those til today. I am not a candy corn fan, but if I were, I'd want to try the chocolate ones!

Patty said...

I lived on Brach's candy corn last October. And, I found that if I took enough insulin to cover a serving (11 candies, I believe), my blood sugar was fine. That caramel kind sounds really good!

Dawn said...

I don't like the taste of candy corn at all. I did see those carmel ones when I went shopping last night and was tempted to buy them. Do they taste more like caramel or more like candy corn to you?

While I don't like to eat it. I do like candy corn as a decoration.

take care,
Dawn

Alea said...

I had not heard of these but I think I remember seeing Candy Corn flavored Hershey kisses.. not sure what to make of that!

Elizabeth said...

Hey! Thanks for posting about my giveaway and putting up the button!
Thanks even more for the 411 on the caramel candy corn! Since I don't get out to browse the stores, I only get to hear about these great things and then I can get someone to go buy it for me!

kbbryant said...

I just bought these at Target too.
