Happy National Candy Corn Day!
National Candy Corn Day is observed annually on October 30th.The biggest candy corn trend going on this year is Candy Corn Pizza. Based on the following two videos, I think it's something of a troll. Just watch We Tried The Candy Corn Pizza Trend from BuzzFeed Video to see why I think so.
Candy Corn was created by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in the late 1800s. He created this sweet treat to represent the bright colors of corn kernels. Originally, Candy Corn was yellow, orange and white, but it has become popular in other colors as well.
This confection was originally made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves of a palm tree), but it is now produced using machines. The original ingredients are still used in the recipe.
Based on a viral tweet, we decided to taste test the candy corn pizza (literally a pizza topped with candy corn and then cooked)."Candy Corn Pizza -- it's not as bad as you think" sums up the positive reactions by the candy corn lovers. At least it didn't make them hate candy corn.
I don't know if the same can be said about the celebrities in Giada, Al Roker And Curtis Stone Try Candy Corn Pizza So You Don't Have To from The Today Show.
Celebrity chefs and our very own Al Roker taste test a pizza with candy corn melted on top – and their reactions are hilarious.Giada and Al said worse things about it than the candy corn haters BuzzFeed rounded up and Curtis Stone wasn't far behind.
