When it comes to candy corn, there is a lot of controversy.

“You either love it or you hate it,” sophomore Elizabeth Kelly said.

The sweet treat, appearing almost exclusively in the months close to Halloween, is well known around the world and is very popular – or unpopular – depending on who you ask.

Junior Stephanie Rojas is part of the crowd that doesn’t like candy corn.

“It’s just not a candy to be chewing on if it tastes that bad,” said Rojas, who doesn’t like anything about candy corn. “Not how it tastes, the color, the look, nothing about it.”

On the other side of things, however, there are people who enjoy eating candy corn.

“I like it cause it’s soft, but I can’t eat too much of it cause then it starts tasting weird,” junior Kimberly Pacheco said.

Most candy corn making companies do not make each color a different flavor, due to the cost for it to be done. Despite this there is a commonly held belief that each color has a different flavor.

“Honestly, it’s just the pure on flavor and the fact that it’s as sweet, that’s the main reason that I liked it and cause of the colors of course,” said Jhosef Adrian Rojas, a sophomore.

Even though candy corn is actually one solid flavor, it can be found in different flavors.

For example, candy corn comes in many flavors such as caramel apple, caramel macchiato, green apple, pumpkin spice, S’mores, and apple pie.
