There are many options when it comes to festive jewelry for the various holidays. But what about jewelry for Halloween? Personally I think candy corn is perfect for decorating oneself for the October holiday. Because… hello, candy corn!!! Simple candy corn earrings are so easy to make and a fun DIY to wear for Halloween.
DIY Simple Candy Corn Earrings
Before we get into making some fun Halloween jewelry, let’s talk Halloween candy. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I love candy corn. Absolutely love it. Oh and those delicious little candy corn flavored pumpkins… I like those, too. For some reason there’s an entire crowd of people who do not like candy corn.
What’s the history of candy corn?
Candy corn was created over 100 years ago and has only continued to gain in popularity over the years. It was a sweet treat that many liked back in the day, but has since been pushed aside by other tasty Halloween treats.
Why do people hate candy corn?
I’m not 100% percent certain why people hate candy corn so much. It’s definitely an unusual thing to have hatred over. Most people like candy, but for some reason candy corn is consistently making the list of worst candies. I’ve heard that it has to do with the flavor and texture of this Halloween treat. People just don’t like the waxiness of the candy at all.
Are you surprised to learn that I also really like that peanut butter flavored taffy that comes in black or orange waxed paper? So good. I apparently just have a palate that is all about the candy no one wants to eat!
What is candy corn made out of?
Is it wax? Is it sugar? What is the candy corn made out of??? Ingredients of candy corn aren’t that complex at all. Candy corn is simply made out of sugar, corn syrup, salt, sesame oil, honey, artificial flavor, and food coloring.
