Candy Corn is something that sounds conceptually good because it mixes two wonderful things. Corn is great (except that soggy yellow buoy they have at El Pollo), candy is good, and candy corn is a mouthful of waxy awfulness. Oreo must be losing some kind of marketing war to Chips Ahoy, so they've pushed out a new product, Candy Corn Oreos. Food Beast has a nice write up, and I kinda want to try some.
From the review it sounds more like a regular old pre-packed cookie than a one to one portrayal of the ill fated candy. Here is some copy from Food Beast:
Each container comes with about 20 cookies, with every two cookies setting you back about 150 calories, 7 grams of fat and 12 grams of sugar.
How do they taste? Like frosting. If no one had told you they were candy corn flavor, chances are you would have never guessed it was themed after the popular Halloween candy. There’s a slight hint of candy corn flavoring, but it’s almost indistinguishable from birthday cake frosting flavors.
Maybe next time I'm at Target I'll pick up a pack.
