Curse of the Candy Corn
I have a love-hate relationship with candy corn, as I'm sure most people who eat it do. It's so very delicious, but I have to monitor my consumption because there is a very fine line between "candy corn satisfaction" and "candy-corn nausea". Even one extra candy corn can push you over the line. I seem to think that the only true cure for candy corn nausea is, of course, more candy corn. After self-medicating, I then run into what is called "candy corn regret" and swear off the stuff for good (mainly because the bag is empty.) But of course today I bought another bag, and I am disappointed to say that Target-brand candy corn falls very short of the highest candy corn standards, set by the confectioners over at Brachs. I mean, I'm still going to eat the whole bag by day's end, but the impeding sick tummy just won't be quite as worth it.
