@rileyper I was thinking of that if I didn’t have so many trick or treaters. Close to 200 last year. Throwing an over a one pound bag in in their bag would weight them down considerably probably make them cut T or T short. Their parents would thank you for that.
@rileyper I think this is a great idea. Also: Meh is not responsible for any damage done to your person or your property because of any attempted execution of this idea, whether via eggs, toilet paper, bags of flaming poop, or the candy corn itself through use as a projectile or shrapnel.
I was also thinking that might be worth the $50 cost. I think we only get like 3 trick or treaters anyway, so I could do it every halloween for 15 years! Probably even longer, since word would get around that it’s not worth going to this house, they’ll just give you a pound of candycorn.
@sammydog01 I’m sure whoever it was loved when I ordered four 42lb bags of cat litter because it was a third the price of the store. At least they put them in four separate boxes. Why ship it in one or two that the guy could easily use a dolly to bring it up my driveway…
So I made peanut free butterfingers (Using cashew butter mixed in-Ugh food allergies!) out of some I got before. They’re more fudgey than the crispy butterfingers, but I might not have heated it up long enough, the recipe was vague. Thinking of experimenting with other forms of candy bark using this as a premade base. Melting and coating pretzel rods and using in rice krispy treats for a halloween party, melted down of course. For those intimidated by candy making, this is a decent shortcut as long as you don’t care if the final product is neon orange.
@rtjhnstn That’s next batch’s plan. I just had a jar of cashew butter open that was otherwise not getting used anytime soon. Mostly because it was grossly too oily to make decent sandwiches from, and it was that or using it in dandan noodles!
@jbrookebarrow Once my nephew wrote a very late thank you note to me for something and apologized for procrastinating. Said he was really good at procrastinating as he practiced it a lot. So I stole my previous message to you from a then 14 or 15 year old kid. (grin)
That queezy sugar high from OD’ing on Candy Corn… followed by a sugar crash feels so fresh it could be yesterday. Even tho it was more like 40 years ago. You see, I had a weird obsession with biting them off preciously at the color change lines. It took lots of practice.
Or don’t buy any at all, that’s an acceptable choice as well
So thanks for removing the guilt from saying “no thank you.”
Oh, and I forgot to mention - if you buy the 50 bags of candy corn, we’re shipping it FedEx Ground instead of SmartPost, because that’s how much we love you (and because SmartPost is weirdly more expensive than Ground at that weight).
So, it is claimed that these are objectively the best candy corn.
Has anyone seen any taste tests published lately? The best I saw, which was perhaps a decade ago, was out of some California paper (San Fransisco Chronicle?) and done by a real tasting panel. They liked the Jelly Belly ones best.
I have ever since gone through about a pound of the Jelly Belly each year.
@mrallen1 If they aren’t adequately melted, just toss the bags in the microwave for a few seconds to a minute on high. The plastic bags shrink slightly, causing the melted candy corn to conform into a solid pillow shaped brick.
If you get deals with Brach’s, would you get a deal of their Milk Chocolate Stars bags? They are just about unobtainium. The big Amaz-- does list them at obscene prices. They may be slightly more available in Xmas packaging, which means NOW for your buyers!
I received a bag with one of the deals it was rather hard and I threw it away, not saying it’s bad but I feel like your backing me into a Corn-er… Send all of it to P.R.and write it off. Like one Meh-head said chocolate is much more desirable.
I bought these just to irritate my wife. She gets upset whenever she sees a package from Meh and berates me for spending money on junk. In fact, an order or two ago was a nice action cam. Just very slightly better than the one I got on Meh before and never used! The best part is that the box went missing.
While we are doing earth a favor and spreading the amount of candy corn from collecting into a single landfill, I can’t wait to see the look on her face when the box comes, she gets upset because I’ve “ordered more worthless shit from that Woot site” and I can open the box, act upset that the candy corn isn’t melted into one easy to handle piece and Chuck it in the garbage.
Let’s face it. Candy corn is a gross candy, second only to the dreaded Circus Peanuts. However, mix candy corn with salted peanuts, and you’ve got a Payday candy bar! (I’m not kidding, it tastes exactly like one). The best part is that this gives you a more practical reason to buy this crap instead of sitting at your desk making candy corn sculptures all day…
Deep fried CandyCorn What can I say. Deep fry some candycorn and put it on a stick. You’ve got a state fair winner on your hands.
I think Meh missed the marketing strategy by not selling these as an ingredient in awesome recipes.
As @trailhunting mentioned PayDay candy bars
Sounds pretty good!
This might be the only more-sugar-saturated deep-fried thing than Deep Fried Twinkies. (BTW, our local SAMs actually recently sold them, direct from Hostess. I thought you had to go to a restaurant to get them.)
