This Is What Candy Corn Is Really Made Of!


A couple of Candy Corn fun facts. My roomate Nichele is obsessed with CC, she's had a bag on the counter for weeks, and they still taste deelish. (Now I know why!) 

  • First things first it has 0 nutritional value, but it does make people who eat it happy so I think that counts for mental wellness!!   
  • An open bag of Candy Corn can last up to 6 months due to all of the sugar and preservatives
  • Candy Corn is made up of 12 ingredients- Sugar, corn syrup, confectioner's glaze, salt, dextrose, gelatin, sesame oil, artificial flavor, honey, yellow 6, yellow 5, and red 3. It also contains gelatin, a protein made from animal parts like hides and bones. So if you're vegan, skip the candy corn this Halloween.
  • The smooth outside coating is made from lac-resin, an insect secretion from lac bugs found in Asia. At first I thought this was gross but then I figured, hey I eat honey! Done and done!
