Today is National Candy Corn Day!

It is observed annually on October 30th.

Candy Corn was created by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in the late 1800s.

He created this sweet treat to represent the bright colors of corn kernels.

Originally, Candy Corn was yellow, orange and white, but it has become popular in other colors as well.

This confection was originally made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves of a palm tree), but it is now produced using machines. The original ingredients are still used in the recipe.
