National Candy Corn Day is celebrated in the USA on October 30th. It’s a sweet autumn holiday! Do you think that candy is actually a vegetable? We are sure not. Sweet corn occupies a certain place on our tables, and definitely will not be lost from them.
Candies resonated in the hearts of people: they were used with particular love during Halloween. A little earlier, corn candies were used to feed chickens. By the way, their name was originally not true. “Butter candies” did not contain oil, so it was soon changed. It is noteworthy that according to the original recipe, sweets were made by hand. The composition was sugar, marshmallows, water, syrups, etc. Now the process has become much easier – human labor is replaced by machines. But this hasn’t changed the taste at all, so just check it out for yourself.
