Here's the dope on circus peanuts from Uncle Cecil himself:

http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a5_222b.html

"I think they are the horror that is the circus, that flat tin taste of fear and clowns and little lost children amid the cotton candy stink and the piles of elephant doo-doo and the clamor of the midway and the tinny sound of the circus band endlessly wheezing its way through yet another soulless circus fanfare."

In my opinion they are the two foulest tasting candies I've ever tasted and I've eaten my share of candy - I've got the fillings in my teeth to prove it! The thought of eating either one makes me completely nauseous!

And now the rare photo of Formikahini with her fangs.

Hahahahaha! 8Ft, un-CANNY the resemblance!
exCEPT: only the white, bottom third of the candy corn is used.

And johntiki, you probably also hate the candy I love even more: Beich's Banana Bites. Absolutely NOthing even remotely bananine (my new adjective) about them, but I love them.
And Hot Tamales.
And Tootsie Rolls. Zazz!

I think it's the chewy texture these all have in common.

Either that, or I'm attracted to trash.

wait, nobody answer that......

Hot Tamales, Tootsie Rolls and Peeps are all good in my book but the taste of both Circus Peanuts and Candy Corn turn my stomach... I'm actually getting clammy and my stomach is starting to rumble thinking about putting one of those foul "peanuts" in my mouth. John if I puke I'm gonna blame it on your topic! (Gotta think positive thoughts like Mike and Ike's or Jolly Joe's that seems to settle my stomach)

There is something oddly compelling about that fake bananoid flavoring...and I love those banana/fudgecicles, too.

speaking of corn syrup in its many colorful forms, I just read that the makers of TWINKIES are going bankrupt!!

will there be no more Twinkies??

Should I start buying and hoarding them now? AFter all, they will never spoil...

Fear and loathing from TwinkieCentral.com...

Humu, you've perked my interest. I'll have to hear the tale when I see you again.

And my vote is for candy corn!
