Halloween Treats: Brachs Caramel Macchiato and Apple Pie Candy Corn

Brachs candy corn is the best in the world. No other brand does it better. And I love that Brachs has been experimenting with candy corn flavors over the last few years. (You can read about their Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple flavors of yore by clicking the links). This year's seasonal offerings are Caramel Macchiato and Apple Pie candy corns.

The Caramel Macchiato does not please me in the least. Oof. It's candy corn with coffee breath. Enough said.

The Apple Pie Candy Corn, on the other hand, is fantastic! I finished the bag in one go and instantly started yearning for more. The classic candy corn honey flavor remains the base but there are additional tones of a mellow baked apple combined with light cinnamon that blend perfectly. Whereas last year's Caramel Apple flavor tasted like a strident Jolly Rancher apple, this Apple Pie blend is far less overpowering. It's wonderful. I need to go buy three more bags.

Score for Caramel Macchiato: 1
Score for Apple Pie: (enthusiastic) 4
