Brach’s Caramel Candy Corn, reviewed

Posted on

Caramel Candy Corn

It’s candy corn season again and I’ve already filled up my candy dishes, but when I was picking up my traditional bags of classic and harvest mix (the bags that include the candy corn pumpkins), I noticed that there was more variety than usual in the candy corn section. In other words, this year candy makers released flavored candy corn along with the traditional honey-flavored variety. I picked up a bag of Brach’s Caramel Candy Corn to try it out.

The candy is exactly what it sounds like: caramel-flavored candy corn. They come in the usual corn kernal shape, have a toffee-colored base (yellow in the original), and are delicious. The caramel flavor is unmistakable and the candy has a firm, slightly grainy texture that reminds me of fudge – especially after you begin to chew the candies and the sugar starts to melt in your mouth. There is also a pleasant, yet subtle, hint of salt in the caramel flavor.

The only negative thing I can say is that they are very, very sweet. Sweeter even than regular candy corn. This means you can’t eat too many at one sitting, which, now that I think about it, is probably a good thing. Not to mention one that your dentist will appreciate.

Cybele didn’t like them when she reviewed them, but she professes to have a love-hate relationship with candy corn in general – while I just love them. The only thing better might be the Brach’s Caramel Apple Candy Corn (which Candy Addict already reviewed).

    One neat thing to do with candy corn is put in bowl with honey roasted peanuts. The salty and the sweet combo is yummily addictive. I’m a first time commenter, but I love your site, and check it daily.

    Ooh, I’m excited this got a good review from you. I’m a real candy corn lover and was scared off a little by Cybele’s poor review of the new flavors. Looks like I’ll be buying both the Caramel and Caramel Apple this season; thanks for the review! (Frequent reader & first-time commenter as well.)

    Oh my a new candy to treat myself and our party attendees to.

    I agree mixing candy corn with peanuts is an old favorite.

    Glad I saw you review first Nic
