History, Candy, Halloween
With the amount of subsidies going towards growing corn, it's only natural that every year we celebrate National Candy Corn Day. Unlike its heavily subsidized cousin, candy corn cannot be grown in the ground. It has to be made, and was originally done so by hand starting in the 1880s. Today candy corn is made by talented machines in a candy factory, which was a necessary move to meet the high demand for these autumn-themed fondant confections. Candy corn has been known to draw ire from some folks, who insist they cannot stand the stuff. But candy corn lovers can stand strong, knowing they have a national holiday backing them up. After all, there's no "National Anti-Candy Corn Day".
