Brach’s Candy Corn Review
I received the mentioned products in this review from Brach’s in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and are unbiased however they may vary from the opinions of others.
What We Thought: Okay readers, are you ready to learn something new? Or maybe you already knew this, but October 30th is National Candy Corn Day! Do you love it as much as I do? I know that this is a favorite seasonal treat for us.
Recently I was given the opportunity to review several varieties of candy corn. Our son decided this was his year to sample candy corn and he loved it, so I took advantage of having many kinds around and made some fun treats.
Pictured above is a Golden Delicious apple with some Caramel flavored Candy Corn. This was perfect for the combination of a caramel apple without having to totally rip apart the kitchen and melt down caramel. This sweet treat was not only fun, but easy for Jack’s little fingers to pick up.
Next we made a little fall trail mix type snack. This features Brach’s Indian Corn which tastes to me much like the traditional candy corn. In this mix we have some popcorn and Bugle’s snacks. This was a great sweet and salty combo. Later we tossed in some M&M’s to just add a little more fun and flavor. With this mix a little goes a long way, but it tasted great and was a fun experiment.
My absolute favorite of all though is pictured above. This was fun to make and really easy. I don’t have a name for them, but I will explain what I did and how we came to this flavor combination.
I lined a cookie sheet with approximately 70 square pretzels. No particular brand, I just found whatever our grocery store had that day. On top of each one I added a Hershey’s Hug (you could use just plain Hershey’s Kisses, but I prefer the Hugs) I turned my oven on to about 300 and put them in for around 5 minutes. The chocolate was just starting to look glossy and was not fully melted. Right out of the oven I added a Brach’s Peanut Butter Cup Candy Corn. These not only helped with the flavor of the snack, but pushed the chocolate down into the pretzel. These made an absolutely delicious snack for very little out of pocket expense. These would be great for a quick snack at any Halloween party. The most time consuming part was unwrapping the Hugs and even that wasn’t bad (especially when you can sneak in a few….).
Another great new addition to the Brach’s Candy Corn family is Mini Candy Corn. These are great to snack with, but also fun to cook with. We have plans to use some to make Turkey Cookies and I will share that with everyone when they are finished.
We were sent other types of Brach’s Candy corn and none of them have been a disappointment and I hope that before National Candy Corn Day we can post a few other fun tips, but for now this is what we have experimented with. Be sure to comment below with any of your fun Brach’s Candy Corn tips and tricks as I would love to know how you enjoy one of America’s favorite treats.
While you are out shopping be sure to grab some Candy Corn! The varieties are amazing including Fruit Cremes (yummy!!)
