Candy Corn Day

Nothing says Halloween is just around the corner than a bowl full of candy corn. Celebrate this multicolored candy that resembles a corn kernel on October 30, Candy Corn Day.

Made of sugar, corn syrup, and coloring, candy corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in Pennsylvania, United States. The candy was then mass produced under the name Chicken Feed by the Goelitz Confectionery Company during the early 1900s. The candy was sold in boxes that had a picture of a rooster on it and marketed under the tagline “Something worth crowing for”.

Many Different Varieties

While the white, orange and yellow version of the candy is popular around Halloween, the triangular candy can be found in different colors, around other seasonal holidays. Some of these include: pastel colored bunny corn sold around Easter; red, white and pink candy called cupid corn available during Valentine's Day; and the red, white and green reindeer corn that is sold around Christmas.

How to Celebrate?

  • Get a bag of candy corn and share them with family, friends, and co-workers.
  • Make your own candy corn at home. If you don’t want something sweet, what about creating savory items in the shape of candy corn?

Did You Know…

...that while candy corn resembles a corn kernel, it is about 3 times the size of an actual kernel?






On the phone with my 93-year-old brother in Wisconsin, and I told him I thought it was time he paid someone to shovel snow for him. He suddenly grew indignant.

“Why should I pay someone to shovel?” he demanded. “I can get my son to do it. He’s only 70!”




While taking a clinical history from an elderly patient, I asked, “How’s your love life?”

“I don’t know,” he said. “I’ll ask my wife.” He got up, walked into the hallway where his wife was sitting, and shouted, “Hey, the doctor wants to know if we still have sex.”

His wife shouted back, “No, the only thing we have is Medicare and Blue Cross.”




Two old guys, Fred and Sam went to the movies.  A few minutes after it started, Fred heard Sam rustling around and he seemed to be searching on the floor under his seat.  "What are you doing?" asked Fred.

Sam, a little grumpy by this time, replied "I had a caramel in my mouth and it dropped out.  I can't find it."

Fred told him to forget it because it would be too dirty by now. 

"But I've got to", said Sam, "my teeth are in it!"




Gauging from these exam 
excerpts, my college dance students had better stick with pliés.

“The costumes were vindictive 
of the style of dance.”

“I commend Bill T. Jones for 
his acts of true kindness and 

“Dancers must have long limps.”

“At first, I had a hard time 
understanding and interrupting 
his movement.”

“Savion Glover’s purpose is to cross all racial and ethical barriers with his dance.”
