There was a Question of the Week (QotW) at the Vox Diaspora blog a few months ago about candy corn.
I like candy corn okay, as maybe you read me saying when I responded. But I really like this version even better:
They were on clearance sale at a local grocery store I visit sometimes. I know some people prefer to have candy corn closer to Halloween. But I think of it more as seasonal-specific than holiday-specific, and it’s nice to have one last taste of autumn, as winter descends. Besides, I do love that waxy goodness that comes with gummy candies, and if you could see me now, I assure you that I say it with a straight face.
