A friend and I were just talking yesterday about candy corn – how really awful it is, how hard it is to stop eating it.
As I suspected, it turns out it’s made with high-fructose corn syrup, which accounts for the horribly addictive qualities of the stuff. Every time I eat it, I think to myself, “Why am I eating this? It makes me feel terrible!”
And yet, I keep eating it. Sugar heroin!
