It's just a sugar and corn syrup concoction. I hate it, it's disgusting.

So it's just candy that looks like corn? Well, stripy corn. It confuses me Lol

And it just tastes like sugar? Is it hard or soft?

It always looks weird to me and looking on Pinterest, people go mad for it..?!?

It tastes like extra sweet sugar, but it has its own taste in a way, it's weird.
It's softish. It's not a hard candy, it's not chewy, it sort of dissolves as you chew it.

Um, imagine wax completely infused with sugar? It's pretty gross. I think it can best be explained as one of those things people like purely for nostalgic reasons.

Yeah, it's not hard, but not chewy. It kind of crumbles in your mouth when you bite into it. Gross. Some people really love it, but it makes me gag.

It's good if you eat it together with peanuts. If you like Baby ruth candy bars, it tastes like that.

Good question. I love it with peanuts. But it's also got honey in it a lot of times too. So it's really sweet.

It is disgusting. One of my classes at uni had a lot of American students in it and one had beem sent a care package from her parents around Halloween with candy corn and she shared it with the class one day. It's up there on my dislike list with marxipan icing.

Ha, I thought this was pretty funny, in light of this conversation! Candy Corn Is Most Buzzed Halloween Candy, Says Research Group

Also I totally agree that Reese's cups are the best candy. It's pretty much the ONLY candy I consider worth eating. Adair had better get several in her bucket for me.

I have said it before, I hate American chocolate and I'm not a huge peanut butter fan but I like Reese's. I got some at a discount store the other week.

I'm the weirdo, I don't like Reese's. I am the only person I have ever known that doesn't.
