Friends, it is National Candy Corn Day. I bring you this news with a heavy heart — I hate candy corn with a fiery passion, normally reserved for non-candy-like items.
Still, there are those in this world who enjoy a good piece of candy corn. And today, we must honor them.
So on this occasion, we offer the Top 5 classic Halloween Candy stories from NPR’s archive, curated by Janel Kinlaw. We kick off with Bonny Wolf’s 2007 Ode to Candy Corn. (Note: that link goes to an mp3)
Cranquis: HEY! Today is National Candy Corn day!
Nurse: Oh. That’s nice.
Cranquis: HERETIC! Show some respect for The Corn!
(As has been previously established, I do not enjoy a good piece of candy corn. I enjoy good BAG-FULLS of it.)
