For the Joy of Candy Corn!
Like most people, I know candy corn isn’t a food group. But there’s something special about it for me. It’s a fond memory of autumn days gone by with my family. My mom always had a candy dish filled with candy corn when we were little and we would just dip our hands in it from time to time, to gather a few and pop them into our mouths! Sometimes, I would bite each section of color, savoring the artistic manner of eating! Ha!
Whenever I see candy corn now as an adult, that sweet memory returns. The nostalgic ache of being a child when there wasn’t any worry about sugary snacks (as long as they were enjoyed in moderation!) nor of calories and the worry of extra pounds that in adulthood seem so hard to shed now.
Is there a fall treat which you relate to in a happy way? Please share! I’ll be passing the candy corn dish around…what will you bring to our nostalgia party?
