Are You Pro or Anti Candy Corn?
This seems to be a very heated debate that takes places around this time every year. What side are you on?
Personally, I'm pro-candy corn.
But I'm not one of those candy corn fanatics that are like "You don't eat candy corn???? Why don't you go take a big dump on Halloween while you're at it!!!" No. I'm not a crazy lady.
On the flip side, though, I don't like people who are anti-candy corn that look at me like I'm the stupidest person on the face of the Earth when they find out that I genuinely enjoy candy corn. They give you that look like they're about to say "How DARE YOU. My father was MURDERED by a candy corn!!!" And then proceed to give me a 5 page power point on why candy corn is the devil and that I'm wrong about everything. Even though I really didn't ask for that...
Why can't we all just get along? Why can't we just have an open discussion about our candy corn feelings?
Yeah, it's practically made out of pure sugar. Yeah, it hurts my teeth when I eat it. Yeah, I can actually feel my tooth enamel disintegrating in my mouth. But if you get past all that, I actually enjoy the taste for a few seconds as I try to get the sugar glue to un-stick from my teeth.
A lot of people find it absurd that I would go through all of that for a taste not many people actually like. And I think of it this way...It's like coffee. (Hear me out.) I don't like coffee. And when I tell people I don't like coffee they always say "Oh, well no one likes it at first. You just get used to it after a while." AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED WITH ME AND CANDY CORN. I used to eat it so much as a kid, that when I became an adult I was just so used it that I actually enjoyed the taste of it.
And candy corn and coffee are kind of the same if you think about it:
-Lots of people have different opinions on it.
-It's not good for your teeth in the long run.
-It energizes you.
-You eventually crash after having so much of it.
-And you poop randomly throughout the day because of it.
So, can't we all just agree to disagree? Stop trying to make me feel guilty for enjoying something. Geesh. I like something. You don't. End of story.
Now lets go make some popcorn and watch Hocus Pocus while quoting it in it's entirety like adults.
