Stores around town have already stocked their shelves with Halloween decorations and bags of sweet treats. My downfall is candy corn, especially the type with chocolate. Made with real cocoa, of course.
A 10-oz bag packs 140 calories in a serving of 22 pieces. The candy corn is so popular that, if placed end to end, there would be enough to go from California to China and half way back (is that going East or West from San Francisco?) Add to this that October 30th is National Candy Corn Day.
While there are suggestions for enjoying candy corn without gaining weight, the problem is that the candy is being passed along to kids who will be consuming far too much sugar. Speaking of which, I'll bet I consume at least 3 servings before my teeth start complaining!
Do you have a weakness for candy corn at Halloween?
If you celebrate Halloween, do you remember what sweet treat you always wanted to find in your Tick or Treat bag?
