Mrs. U's Fall Vitamins...

Yes, you read that correctly. These are my FAVORITE "vitamins" to take every fall!! HAHA!!

Seriously, though, each fall when the leaves start changing and the weather gets that familiar crispness to it, I crave candy corn!! I don't know why. I cannot explain. I just have to buy a bag and eat it. I shared this idea with my sister a few years ago and she feels the same way- candy corn and fall are just meant to be together.

So, where did candy corn come from, you ask? According to Candy USA!...

"Candy corn has been around for more than 100 years. George Renninger, an employee of the Wunderlee Candy Company, invented the popular confection in the 1880s and Wunderlee became the first to produce the candy. The Goelitz Candy Company (now Jelly Belly Candy Company) started producing the confection in 1900 and still produces candy corn today.

When candy corn first appeared, it was popular among farmers because of its agrarian look. The tri-color design was considered revolutionary and the public went crazy for it..."

So... who's up for sharing a bag of candy corn with me??

Haha, I had no idea what the title referred to, then started reading this. What a hoot! I blogged about candy corn also this week. I'm totally and completely addicted to the stuff. I had a blog buddy email me and say she saw a t-shirt in the kids section at a local store that said Candy Corn Queen, and she wished it would have fit, she knows I would wear it! hahaha :)

Great post, and I'm so glad I'm not alone in my total addiction!

Rachel and Stacy- Wooohooo!!!! I AM NOT ALONE!!! My sister and I figured we were the only ones who craved it, too!! I think Melissa at www.desiringtobeagodlywoman.blogspot.com said that she loves it, too!

I think we need a banner for our blogs. Something like "Candy Corn Queens Unite" or something along those lines!! HAHAHA!!!

Phew... gotta go polish off my bag.... :)

I totally love candy corn. It is so excellent.

Melissa said...

Mrs. U, I do love candy corn! Unlike some people though, I could eat it year round! However, there's nothing like an invitation to Fall with a bag of candy corn, and sometimes pumpkins and chocolate ones too ;)

I LOVE CANDY CORN!!!! They are better than Echinacea. I'll take a handful... :)

Add a little protein to your vitamins by mixing the candy corn with peanuts. Tastes like a Payday candy bar.

Mrs. U said...

Hi Jeanne!!

You thought you were the only one??? I won't tell you how many bags of candy corn I've purchased in the last couple of weeks. I also won't tell you who eats most of them. :)

Blessings,
Mrs. C
