Candy corn is a confection that is shaped (somewhat) like a full kernel of corn. It is normally colored white and yellow and orange, but may also be yellow, orange and brown. Candy corn is most often associated with our autumn / harvest / Thanksgiving season.

That said Dodgy .  .  .    don't make me start listing all of the wacky terms you folks 'down under' use, I'll be here for days .  .  .   !!!!!!!

Hey,Dodgy:

      The term "Candy Corn" is a misleading term. The stuff is supposed to resemble imdividual  Kernels of Corn Off the cob. Na ah! More like a marketers idea of a candy ( Crysralized Sugar) that doesn't even really resemble the real thing  .It is like a firm Pure sugar novelty for Halloween( All Halloweds Eve}NOT!!

       The Mexican's have it right in the Dias De La Morte (Day of the Dead)

Any time you can find some is the right time.  As long as my doctor doesn't find out.

If I wasn't under doctors orders to keep sugar input low, I would eat that stuff every day all year round. I absolutely love it.Sad

There's a rumor that production of candy corn actually stopped in 1898, and the same batches have been circulating ever since then...while slowly running out.  Propeller

It's candy shaped like little kernels of corn (maize).  It's popular here in the US, especially around Halloween, and a little more generally, in the rest of autumn, too.  Basically little pieces of sugar and corn syrup, shaped into corn kernels.

Candy corn falls into the category of Nana candy.  That's candy that only your grandmother would buy and keep in the house.  Ribbon candy, those circus peanuts, black licorice pieces, things like that.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Fair dinkum, Dodgy? well okay; how about daks?     or furphy?     or goon?   or finishing any word with 'y' or 'ie' .  .  .     or, we could take your chooks to maccas for a treat.

There's a few starters for you Cobber!!

Actually, it's really cool having friends in Australia because for me, Dodgy is 17 hours ahead time-wise. He's living in the future !!!  Now I just have to figure out how to get him to give me sports scores early enough so I can make decent bets !!!

There you go, we are definitely on the same page .  .  .!!!

 

Actually, historically speaking; I was having a conversation with a friend about the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the fact that is apparently missed in the movies. For the Japanese, the attack on Pearl, to them, was on Monday, the 8th of December.

Well I'll be. You won't believe it Tojo, but it's the same here. As far as I'm concerned, they've all got their snouts in the trough. And that's as political as I get.
