One of my favorite candies is the corn candy they have around Halloween. I mix it with salted peanuts and it tastes just like a Salted nut roll! Have you ever mixed you candies with something else? I love M&M's in Chex mix too. But this corn candy and peanuts is at the top of my favorites!

I love candy corn! It must have some kind of narcotic in it because I get started and I can't stop eating it! Fortunately, it's only around once a year!

For sure. It probably wouldn't be such a treat if it were around all the time!

Have you seen the Easter candy corn? There's a patriotic one too! I just found them on Oriental Trading's website!

Corn candy has been around forever! It is certainly a classic. My grandfather used to be crazy about it and the only time we could find it was in the fall. My favorite that is only around in the fall are those Mary Janes. They are those gooey candys that come on orange and/or black wrappers...oh I love those things.

I don't like candy corn, but you know, I do like a nice salted nut roll. Maybe if I combined the it with salted peanuts like you mentioned it would taste good to me. My mom has always been big on candy corn. If I got some as a child I would just pass it off to her.

I like candy corns and M&M's together. The different tastes are fun to eat while watching a good movie. It gives me a little chocolate and its not messy to eat.

I love candy corn. I will have to try mixing it with salted nuts though. I also like the little pumpkins that are like the candy corn. Have you seen them?

This would be quite interesting and might be something I would like to try. I have mixed M&Ms before with a lot of different things though. And have done gummy bears with a lot of other interesting things as well. So to be able to experience different types of food with candies and such often makes for an experience as well.

I love the corn candy too... but I get sick of it really quick. I do not mix it with anything else, never thought to try.

I agree....a little bit goes a long way and I also get sick of it quick...not as quick though as when I mix it with peanuts.

I actually have to admit that I've never really been a fan of candy corn, but it is something that my children really enjoy, so that is something that I have to get during the Halloween season. As far as mixing my candy with something else, it is something that I used to do when I was in college. I would buy a bag of M&Ms and then a bag of mixed nuts and I would eat the two of those together and it tasted sweet and salty at the same time and that is something that I really enjoyed.

Yes! I love Candy Corn! My favorite is the Pumpkin Candy Corn that is sold for Halloween. When it comes to candy, I am a purist, so I never mix my candy corn with any other kind of candy. Does that make me boring?

Candy corn is awesome. I like it plain actually. I do like the mix sold at stores with raisins, nuts and M & M's. My husband bought a bag the other day and I ate the whole thing...lol It's that salty sweet mix that is so good. I find it to be a great evening snack when I get the munchies.

Never ever heard of it or tasted it Jill. Well - you know that I have lived a very simple life We did not have Halloween on the Island u til about 20 odd years ago either so this was imported from the USA. However, where I live the kids come around and I love to see them all dressed up and looking for candy. I would like to try it though

I used to love those corn candies when I was young but not anymore but not anymore I think they are way too sweet. Ive never mixed them at all like you have but I dont think I would like it either. After Halloween is over you can get those bags of candy corn on sale for next to nothing. Since you like them so much you should stock up on them so you can eat them all year round.
