Canadian Corn?

TV Squad has a list of Eight TV character-inspired Halloween candies. One of them is from "How I Met Your Mother", Robin Scherbatsky's Canadian corn:
Oh, Canada. Slutty pumpkins aside, Robin had to convince her American friends that Canada not only celebrates Halloween, but Canadian corn is the best Halloween candy ever. That's right, Canadian corn. It's like candy corn, only it's orange on the top and white on the bottom. It also tastes like pancakes because it isn't made with corn syrup; it's made with maple syrup.

I'd try it! Sounds like a great idea.

When I got to the bottom of my container of candy corn, it looked like I had a collection of shark teeth. There must be a Candy Corn Shark out there somewhere swimming toothless.

Candy Corn is mostly Fondant

Candy corn is made with fondant, a special confectionery ingredient consisting of about 20% sugar and 80% corn syrup. Fondant is solid at room temperature but becomes a nice smooth fluid as it is heated because sugars are more soluble at higher temperatures. This liquidy syrup is deposited in molds as it was around the turn of the century, but the process is slightly more efficient.

Rather than using solid molds to shape candy corn into its distinctive form, the syrupy slurry is poured into indentations in a tray of corn starch.

Ode to a Mellocreme Pumpkin

Ode to a Mellocreme Pumpkin | Candy Dish Blog

You are orange and green
You taste like a dream
And you are manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts, tree nuts, sunflower seeds, milk, soy, and wheat
You herald the fall
From the special Halloween candy aisle I hear your call
You contain Partially Hydrogenated Cottonseed and/or Soybean Oil, which adds a dietarily insignificant amount of fat
Oh, sweet, sweet mellowcreme pumpkin…let’s get together tonight in front of the Gilmore Girls
Where I will feast upon you until I very nearly hurl
They don’t put nearly enough of you in the Brach’s Autumn Mix.

KISSES Candy Corn Pixies

Have you tried the Hershey Kiss Candy Corn flavor? It's pretty much white chocolate, but still not bad. Don't be confused -- it's no replacement for candy corn! But this looks pretty tasty...
