Candy corn has long been considered a Halloween candy. There is even a National Candy Corn Day…the day before Halloween (duh!). And Americans love this tasty treat, consuming an incredible 35 million pounds annually. That’s about nine billion pieces of candy corn.
The History of Candy Corn
Candy corn was invented by George Renninger, a candymaker from Philadelphia, sometime in the 1880s. However, candy corn did not become popular until the 20th century when Jelly Belly Candy Co., then Goelitz Confectionery Company, began to mass-produce candy corn. Except back then it wasn’t known as candy corn, it was called “Chicken Feed.” The candy’s slogan: “something worth crowing for.”
A Christmas Twist on a Popular Halloween Treat
It’s a shame that candy corn is a strictly Halloween-related candy, right? Well, not anymore!
Wockenfuss Candies and Jelly Belly have put a Christmas twist on this popular Halloween treat: Reindeer Corn. Sealed in 8 oz. bags for freshness, Reindeer Corn is great for stocking stuffers, or just snacking on while you wait for Santa and his flying reindeer to visit your home. Either way, it’s a win-win: it’s the holiday season and you get to enjoy some delicious candy. What could be better?
