Is there anything that says Halloween like the smell of Candy Corn. I don’t know what it is about Candy Corn but when I smell it I am reminded of Halloween, Jack-O-Lanterns, all that stuff. I don’t even really like to eat Candy Corn that much, but every year, I try to have a bowl of it just sitting around, just so I can smell it when I walk in the room.
I think my earliest memory of Candy Corn is my grandfather’s house. If I remember right, he liked Candy Corn and he always had it sitting in a bowl on the coffee table in front of his fireplace. When I was little we spent a lot of time at his house, for some reason, I seem to associate fall, the weather changing and Halloween, with the Candy Corn that sat on his coffee table. He died 4 years ago, but I still think of that. It’s funny what unusual things can have such strong associations even years later.
