My cousin loves it more than anyone I’ve ever met. When she went to college, my dad would send her a care package every fall — mainly just a box full of candy corn, her favorite.

My dad, on the other hand, will not touch the stuff. Unless it’s to mail said care packages.

Me? I’m on the fence. I’ll eat a few, but after a while they just taste like sugar to me!

Apparently it’s extra terrible for your teeth (can’t say I’m that surprised), which dentists must love.

But Halloween comes just once a year, so thankfully there’s few opportunities to overindulge — unless you’re into the various other color schemes offered throughout the year. (Red and pink cupid corn, anyone? Hard pass!)

You can definitely have fun with the menu at a Halloween party.

Love the candy theme? Try a Tootsie Roll Cocktail or even Skittles-Infused Vodka, especially if you add a cube of dry ice for some witchy fun.

(Though it might be a good idea to find out her opinion on candy corn first!)
