    I tend to buy one small box of fruit shaped marzipan at Christmas time. I don't eat a lot of it, but Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without at least a couple of pieces of marzipan shaped like an orange or a strawberry.

    It's like butter!

    Actually, that one is clear cut to me, candy corn is candy.

    I think it is more akin to a candle than a candy.

    From the googles.

    Candy corn isn't just sugar. It's actually made up of several ingredients, including 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.


    EWWWWwwwwwie!

    good question, maybe others were simply overindulgences.

    I have thought about The Olde Candy Days...lots of loose candy in bags, and how 'bout them big waxed lips and other gross formats? The somewhat pointless Colored Dots on a Strip of Paper (odd sugar delivery system). No wrappers at all. Pick your nose then pick your candy! Builds a nice immune system.

    And we are back to the "eating batter/dough" discussion.

    One of the local theaters has a yearly short play festival that I participate in. (Side note: probably won't happen this coming year.) It has become a tradition to bring something that falls into the "I dare you to eat that" category. We've had pumpkin pie soda and birthday cake Oreos, among other choices. The guy who produces the festival is unflappable. He'll try anything and usually says whatever is on offer is either "Good" or "OK". We finally cracked him though a couple of years ago with . . .

    peanut butter candy corn.

    I brought the peanut butter candy corn to the event and it has become the standard for "I dare you to eat that" disgusting.

    Similar experience in '78. We were at the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, before we went to Germany. Went to Fort Ord to visit family friends, I'm not sure how big the bag was, but I ate it all.
