Candy corn is a divisive treat, some hate it, others love it!  Some facts you may not know: It has a corn shape because ‘nature inspired’ candy was all the rage in the 1880’s when it was first invented.  At one time it was called Chicken Feed. The recipe is basically the same as it was in the 1880’s.  Statistically it is still very popular selling approximately 9 billion a year.  The CHEW went to the candy factory and showed us how candy corn is made.
