I really have been feeling some anger towards candy corn this season and I don’t like it.
Because they are delicious. And if you don’t believe my commitment to this candy, just know that I once took the time to write an entire post about them. Or maybe I just couldn’t think of anything else to write about that day. But whatever. The point is – it’s a good candy that doesn’t deserve to be mocked.
So imagine my outrage when I went to a little kids show at my public library this week and the entertainer (let’s call her Rosana Banana)) starts singing this song, “I Don’t Like Candy Corn.” Here’s a sample of it on YouTube.
Now by the time Rosana Banana finishes this song, there are a few kids who dare to wimper, “I like candy corn.”
I said nothing and I regret it. I mean, if you aren’t going to speak up and defend one of your favorite candies then when are you going to speak up?!
I think I was a little distracted because the Trader Joe’s near me just expanded and decided to get rid of their coffee samples. They used to have a little table where you could pour a dixie cup worth of coffee and add some creamer and have yourself a little tasty treat.
Now it’s gone. Just gone. With no warning or anything. I never even had time to prepare myself. Apparently, it wasn’t paying off in coffee sales. But you know what Trader Joe - it was paying off in happiness. That little shot glass worth of coffee made for a more delightful trip to your store and I am tempted to start some kind of letter writing campaign to bring it back.
And you know when I say, “letter writing campaign,” I mean emails or text messages or maybe just psychic vibes.
So as you can see, due to my potential community organizing efforts on the Trader Joe’s front, I missed my opportunity to defend the beauty of candy corn.
I vow to never let it happen again.
Now Dots. Such a lame candy. Make fun of them all you want.
