In order to bring people back into the sweet corn family, Brach’s came up with two new ways to eat the iconic yellow, orange and white Halloween and Fall treat. The confectioner also released three other new candies.
Nerds Candy Corn and Brach’s Minions Candy Corn will be available this year.
“Now there is a candy corn for everyone,” said Mariah Havens, director of seasonal marketing at Ferrara.
As for the states where people eat the most sweet corn, Brach discovered that the number one candy corn state is California.
The # 2 was Texas followed by:
4. New York
7. Pennsylvania (Remember, a sweet corn created in Pennsylvania)
8. North Carolina
The five states with the less members of “Team Candy Corn” are:
Brach’s said it used sales data from Brach’s Classic Sweet Corn and Brach’s Fall Blend, which includes Classic Sweet Corn, Harvested Corn, and Fluffy Cream Pumpkins to determine the ranking.
