Candy Corn Flavored Oreos? Yes, Those Exist Now
I’ve never met anyone who likes candy corn. I’ve also never met anyone who doesn’t like Oreos. So, I really have no idea what to think about the new Candy Corn Flavored Oreos that are set to go on sale next week at Target.
Now, just because the circle of people I know are unanimously against candy corn (as well as comics like Lewis Black) that doesn’t mean that people don’t like them. According to Yahoo Voices, nearly 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold every year.
According to Black, however, the world’s supply of Candy Corn was created in 1911 and has been recycled every year since no one eats it. Maybe they’ll be able to make a dent in the supply now that the Candy Corn Oreo has been introduced.
“The worst thing about Halloween is, of course, candy corn. It’s unbelievable to me. Candy corn is the only candy in the history of America that’s never been advertised. And there’s a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. And so, since nobody eats that stuff, every year there’s a ton of it left over. And the candy corn company sends the guys to the villages and they collect out of the dumpsters all the candy corn we’ve thrown away.”
According to the OC Weekly, the Candy Corn Oreos will go on sale starting Monday, September 10th, at Target stores around the country.
What do you think about the new Halloween treat? Will this be a hit? Or will the taste of recycled Candy Corn turn people off of Oreos?
