Candy corn contains stuff that is also contained in some kinds of plastic.

If by "stuff" you mean hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, then you're right.

Yes, Ollie, I think you would do something unnecessarily mean.

Candy corn contains stuff that is also contained in some kinds of plastic. Not plastic itself. Saying candy corn contains plastic is like saying a lamp contains a radio.

I don't know how you did that, but it was necessarily mean!


Of course it was. Do you think I would ever do anything that was UNnecessarily mean?

So...

Do people believe this? Has it come to "it must be true because I saw it on the interweb"?

Well actually candy corn is made out of about 49% sugar, 49% corn syrup and 1% cornstarch, the corn starch is how they keep there shape while cooling. They just add dye to there different vats of the sugar and corn syrup mixture.

DMoneys36: HAHA! I love that too. That's what I always think of when I see candy corn. "All the candy corn that was ever made, was made in 1911."

Too funny :)

" In the early days, workers mixed the main ingredients -- sugar, water and corn syrup -- in large kettles. Then they added fondant (a sweet, creamy icing made from sugar, corn syrup and water) and marshmallow for smoothness."

..But yeah... plastic is what it tastes like.

@puppetdemon

Corn is harvested in the fall, and halloween uses candy, so it kind of crossed over.

@StormyDreams

No, its a candy in the shape of corn kernels... I never quite understood why it has anything to do with Halloween though.

Dont think this is right, Ive made candy corn before. Corn syrup and sugar are the main ingredients. I have no idea what this thing is about. I dont even think there's butter in them.

Never mind, just saw Angillion's post about them being from Fake Science. This is why you dont trust everything you read on the internet.
