Tag You’re It has a new challenge this week! How many of you are fans of the movie, Elf? Buddy the Elf declares that there are are four food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. Kara Lynne’s inspiration tag reminds me of the food group that kicks off the holiday candy season, candy corn! I always think about Halloween when I see candy corn! You can get all of the details and play along right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/10/tag-youre-it-challenge-33.html
I love the colors of candy corn, even though I do not eat those tiny tri-color triangles! When I was about 12 years old, my friend Lisa and I pooled our money and went down to the candy store. I wanted a variety of things, but Lisa insisted on candy corn, ALL candy corn! Do you have any idea how much candy corn you could buy for $2.50? Somewhere in the neighborhood of SIX POUNDS! We took our candy corn booty bag down to the river and sat on a park bench and ate candy corn until I had a tummy ache. I told Lisa to take the bag home but she refused, so I brought it home and my mom put it in a big bowl for the family. I think we had candy corn in that bowl until Easter! I never wanted to eat another piece of candy corn in my life! I do like the color though, and it will always remind me of autumn in Wisconsin, which is a beautiful season!
Thanks for joining me today, and please, enjoy your candy corn responsibly!
Live your life in color!
