In the 1880s, a man by the name of George Renninger changed Halloween forever when he invented a three-toned treat he called “Candy Corn.” Each individual piece of that uniquely-textured, chewy sweet was originally crafted by hand. Today, the National Confectioners Association estimates that 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold annually — it has certainly come a long way from its humble origins! In fact, the treat has grown so popular that it can now be found in any number of crazy seasonal forms… and we love every. single. one.
Let’s start things off with the tried-and-true original version. Brach’s Candy Corn, with its creamy flavor, has been a staple in Halloween-loving households for generations. Or, try out Jelly Belly’s take on the traditional treat! Using a 100-year-old recipe, this gourmet sweet is a true taste of candy corn excellence.
