"Candy Corn! Corn...that tastes like CANDY! I can't wait!"

I admit to having sporadic cravings for candy corn, but have never been swayed by the siren song of circus peanuts (although I do remember they were an integral part of a MST3K milkshake recipe...)

NO THE'YRE NOT. AND THE THANKSGIVING CANDY CORN IS GREAT TOO.

I could never figure out why a circus peanut tastes more like a styrofoam banana than a peanut anyway.

Glad you like them, that leaves more candy corn for the rest of us.

oh, how can you say that - the only variation of the candy corn that is worth anything is those pumpkin shaped things!
long live the circus peanut!

well, that would help in a healthier discussion, but there are no peanuts in circus peanuts, and no corn in candy corn

There is a really great Halloween Mix that has candy corn, the orange pumpkins and orange and yellow jelly bellys. I think that it has big yellow corn, too. I wish it was around all year!!

I find myself strangely enamored of them both. Yes, I love them both.

However, I will have to give the nod to candy corn, if forced to choose, for one reason only: the little white bottom part of the 3 layers. I am compelled, by some some childhood spell, to save for last the biggest "whites" and apply them to my canine teeth, creating instant fangs.

I have never, ever eaten candy corn without the Dracula piece de resistance. This includes eating them alone, without an audience for my fangs.

Actually, I do not recall eating them alone for several decades now, but I'm *sure* I would do it.

This is somehow tied to biting off the chocolate bunnies' ears first, then all remaining appendages, according to size. This means that the head is the penultimate portion, saving the trunk for last.

Again, this applies to private as well as public consumption.

Circus peanuts, especially stale ones, are NASTY. I'd rather eat headcheese!

Love those chocolate ones!


And now the rare photo of Formikahini with her fangs.

That picture cracked me up!!

I love candy corn and would be fine to never see a circus peanut again in my life. Yuck!! Sorry John.

The best part of eating candy corn is biting each color off seperatly, starting with the smaller white end. Sick, I know..... I've been eating them this way since I was a child.

I once saved a man's life using a circus peanut.

I am not making this up.

I'd rather not have this man's personal medical history blasted all over the internet, but I'll happily relate the tale in person to anyone who's interested. It was a scary, not-so-fun event at the time, but enough time has passed now to laugh at it.

I'm sure if we wait a few minutes, though, Unga Bunga will post a photo of it.
