October 30th National Candy Corn Day

Did you know that over 9 billion pieces of candy corn are eaten a year!?! Did you know that since it is made from corn syrup, honey and sugar it contains no fat? Did you know that candy corn was originally named “Chicken Feed”? Does any of this really matter to you? George Renninger created candy corn for the Wunderle Candy Company sometime in the 1880’s in Philadelphia, PA. Today Candy Corn is manufactured by the Jelly Belly Company, producing 1,200 kernels per second.

How to celebrate – Get some candy corn. Try planting your candy corn. (I bet you grow ants) Find your own candy to celebrate fall with.
