National Candy Corn Day
As I mentioned in yesterday's post here on Blogger, today is National Candy Corn Day. The picture atop this entry shows two of my whimsical visitors (who are fraternal twins) dressed in Halloween costumes designed to look like candy corn. The image was taken a few years ago, and ever since that time, these kids have been regular visitors to my home both at Halloween and Thanksgiving, which are the two main holidays for one to enjoy candy corn.
According to Holiday Insights, "Candy corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger, and first manufactured by the Wunderle Candy Company. The Goelitz Candy company was the first to manufacture mass quantities around the turn of the century."
In any event, these fraternal twins have been known to advocate for the rights of this type of candy, which is something I reported here on Blogger as well as on tumblr and hometalk.
When they aren't celebrating National Candy Corn Day or advocating for the rights of candy corn, the twins spend time with Ms. Cobb (a seen in the pictures below).
