For many, it's hard to believe that there is a population out that is capable of disliking one of the best treats of Halloween: candy corn. Sure, the stuff is made out of pure sugar, but according to How Stuff Works, demand for this particular delicacy is quite high: 

According to the National Confectioners Association, candy companies will produce nearly 35 million pounds of the corny candy this year. That's about 9 billion individual kernels of corn.

Since its initial creation in the 1880s, the recipe for candy corn has barely changed. Why would you mess with a classic? Candy corn is here to stay through the ages, delighting children and adults for years to come.

These devilish pieces of orange sugar are nothing more than an invasion of the candy shelf. Some have even likened candy corn to the cockroaches of the candy industry; they just won't die. 

Candy corn offers absolutely nothing to those who eat it. It tastes like nothing, it fails to satisfy hunger and it only intensifies the desire for real Halloween candy.
