With Halloween right around the corner it’s the perfect time of year to start thinking sweets. One of the most popular treats this time of year is candy corn. Did you know candy corn has been around since the 1880’s? Wunderlee became the first company to product the candy and in 1900 the Geolitz Candy Company started to produce it and still does today as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. More than 35 million pounds of candy corn are produced each year.
The National Confectioner’s Association conducted a survey in 2013 that found 46.8% of people eat the entire piece of candy corn at once. 42.7% eat the narrow white end first while 10.6% start with the wider yellow end.
