Candy corn

OK, so perhaps it's not as elegant as a multi-layer chocolate cake or as rich as premium ice cream, but something definitely has to be said for that perennial favorite, candy corn. The hurts-your-teeth honey sweetness and the satisfying chewiness make candy corn one of the leaders of the candy pantheon (also in the pantheon are jelly beans and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups). It's worth noting that the buttercream pumpkins, while also tasty, are not as satisfying as candy corn, despite similar content. Maybe it's the ratio of slightly crunchier outer shell to spongy center, I'm not sure, but they're just not the same.
