National Candy Corn Day is celebrated annually on October 30th.

Candy Corn was created by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in the late 1800′s. He created this sweet treat to represent the pretty colors of kernels of corn.   Originally, Candy Corn was yellow, orange, and white, but has become popular in other colors as well, when produced for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter.

This confection was originally  made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, Fondant, and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves of a palm tree), but it is now produced using machines.  The originally ingredients are still used in the recipe.

Whether you are adventurous and want to go whip up a batch or go and purchase a bag, go and enjoy National Candy Corn Day.
