Halloween is Coming at Last! Brachs Caramel Apple Candy Corn
Let the Halloween candy season begin! I expected far more from Brachs Caramel Apple Candy Corn. As candy corn is one of my most enduring and beloved sweet treats, followed closely by caramel apples, how could this go wrong? Well, it did. The apple flavor is far too artificial and sour apple-y, like an apple Jolly Rancher wrapped in a caramel wrapped in a candy corn. Instead, it should have blended the mellow flavor of a red delicious apple flavor with caramel. I could only eat a handful which is saying something, because most candy corn disappears instantly within my reach. I'll give them one thing, though, they're really pretty and festive for Autumn. Nice try, no dice, unfortunately.
