Behind The Scenes: The Great Candy Corn Debate of 2012

October 26, 2012

Things got pretty heated on the Damask Love Facebook and Instagram pages yesterday…well, maybe not heated, but we did have some interesting banter about a highly controversial topic…candy corn.

Do you love it?  Do you hate it? Do you care?

Personally, I am NOT a fan of candy corn…and that’s putting it gently. I hate the stuff. To me it tastes sugary,  grainy, stale gum – and let’s be honest, if someone came up to you and said “Hey, want some of this sugary, grainy, stale gum – you would say “ I most certainly do not.”

Much to my surprise, there were plenty of staunch candy corn supporters. I respect that. I like people with strong opinions.

So… today, I thought it’d be fun to immortalize The Damask Love Candy Corn Debate of 2012 with a couple of graphics that summarize the two sides in this matter.

First, for the anti-candy-corners…a little quote from yours truly. Something I said to a coworker when she asked me if I liked it:

Yep – that ’bout sums up my opinion of candy corn!

But to be fair, I should give a voice to the pr0-candy-corn contingency, so here’s a quote straight from a reader that literally made me laugh out loud when I read it:

What’s your position on candy corn? Share it here – or come on over to Facebook to discuss. And…I’ll be back later with a candy corn inspired project as well as an announcement! PHEW! It’s a busy Friday here at Damask Love!  See you later gators!

  1. Funny! I could take it or leave it, personally. Sometimes it can be good, all buttery, sweet and smooth, and other times, like you said – grainy, lol!! Either way, it looks cute, though!!!

  2. We don’t have candy corn in the UK – all the stamps you guys have for it confused me so I googled it. Looks cute but sounds odd. We tend to give away Haribo’s over here for Halloween.

  3. I like candy corn and it’s really good with something salty like peanuts. However my favorite of the overly sweet Haloween candy varity is the little pumpkins. I just realized I have been good and haven’t had any this year! But they are really yummy. That’s my two cents!

  4. I can’t stand candy corn!! I started to think I was alone, until now. Even my kids won’t eat it (and that there alone, should say something about the stuff!). lol Ahh, but each to their own. I love the quote you came up with! 🙂 I agree 100%!

  5. Candy Corn is one of my favorite treats of the season. I love the crunchiness and the sweet taste and it brings back plesant memories. It just feels downright nostalgic when I think about the cute little Turkey Tail Feathers that I would make with Candy Corn in Grade School.

  6. When my nephew was a pre-schooler he had a special word for foods that he thought were really gross: misgusting. Candy corn is the ultimate in misgusting. It tastes like sugar and wax (because IT IS sugar and wax).

  7. Revolting stuff – I can’t stand it, not even when I was a kid. But I totally love the fonts you used in the graphics!!

  8. I’m from Australia – I’ve never seen candy corn in my life, and we don’t really celebrate Halloween much at all over here – I’ve been feeling a little left out with all the Halloween cards on blogs all over the place lately – bring on Christmas!

  9. Eating candy corn on it’s own – no so much. But mix it with salted peanuts and it is addicting. It tastes just like a salted nut roll !! LOL !! So that is the only way we have it in our house.
