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!
