A new (gross?) flavor of candy corn
Filled frame of candy corn perfect for the Halloween holiday.

Hi, Rich Dale here.  It’s early August and I’ve seen a surprising number of Halloween products being sold.  Here’s the latest, though I guess this is supposed to be football-themed too.

A new candy corn is making some people feel a little queasy.  I know a lot of people hate regular candy corn, but I’m not one of them.  I love the stuff!  But I don’t often like to mix sweet and savory.

Brach’s Tailgate Candy Corn features a hot-dog and a hamburger flavor!  Not sure I’m ready for that.  I mean I wouldn’t put candy on a burger!  Of course, they also have fruit punch, vanilla ice cream, and popcorn-flavored candy corn, which are no problem!

The brand-new flavors are exclusively available at Walgreens as of a few days ago.  The company says, “Brach’s iconic candy corn has been synonymous with the start of fall for decades. We’re excited to help families and friends celebrate their anticipation for the season together by releasing Brach’s Tailgate Candy Corn.”

The special mix will be available through October and will be priced around three-dollars a bag.  I think I’ll stick to the delicious traditional “iconic” candy corn.  You can have my share of the burger flavored.  And have a side of circus peanuts while you’re at it.
