21 kernels of Candy Corn

Now this is real-time blogging for I’ve just returned home to find a friend has arrived bearing a festive container of Candy Corn.

Candy Corn and I go waay back to the nights when Trick or Treating was safe and all manner of candies might nestle in a wayward corner of your treat bag, perhaps something new and exotic, or maybe only….Candy Corn. Seldom has pure sugar tasted so good than with this treat’s marshmallowy flavor.

Here’s the list of ingredients with their ‘nutrition’ facts per serving of 21 kernels from the batch I’m looking at and nibbling from – that’s 21 kernels, mind:

Calories: 150; fat from cal: 0; Total fat: 0; Saturated fat: 0; Trans fat: 0; Chloresterol: 0mg; Sodium: 55mg; Total carbs: 37; Fiber: 0; Sugars: 27g; Protein: less than 1 gram; Vitamins: 0; Calcium: 0; Iron: 0.

Salty little kernels of sugar, aren’t they? And my 21 limit just got disrespected so I hope dinner isn’t ruined because of a nostalgic concoction invented in the 1880s!

  2. No, Julie, don’t ruin the yummy magic! ;p

    Seems Candy Corn is turning up on doorsteps all over the place, perhaps readying to crescendo on the evening of Oct 31…?

  3. Oh my, candy corn has a special place in my heart, too. I used to call them ‘fingernails’–they were my favorite, along with candy cigarettes–I wonder if that says anything about the woman that four year old grew into? And just a few days ago my daughter brought some over–I hadn’t had them in years–what a treat! I certainly didn’t mind spoiling my dinner, and consumed them just like I did as a kid, biting one colored section at a time. But I admit to just skimming the nutrition figures you cited–didn’t want to ruin the magic.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
