Halloween Fun Fact #1

HALLOWEEN FUN FACT #1 candy corn and rooster

Did you know… Candy corn was originally called “chicken feed.”

This time tested Halloween treat was sold in packages with a rooster on the label by the Goelitz Confectionery Company.  It seems they wanted to appeal to our country’s “down on the farm” roots.  According to the article I read by Good Housekeeping, the recipe has changed very little since the late 1800’s.  Personally, that makes me happy because I love candy corn!
