Halloween Candy Corn / Pumpkin Spice - Pie Madness, Part 1: Brach's Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn

Ok, let's discuss the obvious. Candy Corn and Pumpkin have always been big favorites in the Halloween market. This year, though, they're definitely amped up. They're everywhere. Some of the experiments are wonderful successes. Some are duds. Let's just round up past contenders, discuss the current set, and move along. It's overload at this point.

Brach's Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn sum up the two trends in one fantastic package! Brach's know's candy corn better than any other company. I would never have identified this new flavor as Pumpkin Spice. Never. There's some cinnamon nutmeg something going on but if forced to guess I would have hazarded: gingerbread. So who knows what this flavor is. That said, I loved it. I would better classify the flavor as Extra Strength Candy Corn. It's just super extra sweet. Try them. But don't picture pumpkin pie dancing across your taste-buds...

Score (deliciousness): 5
Score (flavor accuracy): 2
