Candy Corn wins worst Halloween candy again

imageCarter asked for candy corn every day since Oct 1st. I told him he would get some trick or treating. After each house last night, Carter reported back, “they didn’t have candy corn”.

There ought to be a job for candy ranking. I would be SVP . I am so good at eating candy and determining its worth.
