It’s October 1st, so the fight over candy corn is officially in full-swing again

October 2, 2017

It’s finally Halloween season (that’s totally a thing), and with that comes so very many things. Spooky Halloween decorations everywhere, a plethora of haunted houses to attend, the best horror movies of the year… And of course, the annual Great Candy Corn Debate. This candy is weirdly divisive as a snack food. Some people love it and look forward to it every year. Some people find it to be like eating tiny multicolored pieces of wax and question the sanity of anybody who feels otherwise. (Ahem.)

It’s finally Halloween season (that’s totally a thing), and with that comes so very many things. Spooky Halloween decorations everywhere, a plethora of haunted houses to attend, the best horror movies of the year… And of course, the annual Great Candy Corn Debate. This candy is weirdly divisive as a snack food. Some people love it and look forward to it every year. Some people find it to be like eating tiny multicolored pieces of wax and question the sanity of anybody who feels otherwise. (Ahem.)
The candy corn discourse started early this year, with Disney’s introduction of candy corn soft serve and this candy corn pizza making the rounds online. But not that it’s officially October, things are really getting heated. After year after year of engaging in the same argument, Twitter came out swinging.
So let the Great Candy Corn Debate begin once more.
i swear to god im not doing the candy corn debate this year if u eat that wax garbage walk tf up out my mentions i dont have the patience— haunted juice box (@babyboyshorts) September 26, 2017
The creative names people find to refer to this cursed food* really deserve some kind of awards show to properly celebrate them.
*their opinion, obviously, not ours, although…
Okay, the annual candy corn debate has begun and if you actual human monsters want to snack on diabetes candles, who am I to stop you?— Deanna Raybourn (@deannaraybourn) September 28, 2017
Seriously, do people just mull this over all year so they have the perfect shade to throw when October rolls around?
But, for the record, candy corn is the shed baby teeth of tiny toddler demons.— Deanna Raybourn (@deannaraybourn) September 28, 2017
Some people have gotten REAL serious about taking sides.
My fight against candy corn will never end. If you like eating candy corn you are my enemy— ’79 malibu wagon (@LosinItFanClub) September 27, 2017
Some people are so serious that they want to take this fight to the STREETS.
Candy corn fight club? Y/N?

There would be more than a few members, clearly.

Okay, let’s not kid — there would be a lot of members. Turns out, there are an alarming amount of people super down to physically fight over this treat.
wondering if putting “fight me” in all caps is work appropriate when discussing candy corn— イズ乙レ乇丂 (@xSadxDadx) September 30, 2017
For some people, the debate gets PERSONAL.
I don’t understand people who don’t like candy corn. Were y’all not loved as children?— Ouija Board Whore (@theletterzer0) September 29, 2017
Wiser people stay clear of this debate, and we admire their restraint. It must be hard to keep such passion to yourself.

Wherever you land on the debate, at least we can all agree on one thing! These tweets are hilarious.
