Have we gone too far? This year Americans can combine two of their favorite fall pastimes—Halloween and brunch—into one overly sweet treat.Brach’s Confections, one of the main distributors of candy corn, is taking the familiar waxy candy up a notch with new brunch-flavored candy corn. Now the contents of your trick or treat bag can taste like Sunday morning.
Brach’s brunch candy corn comes in three varieties —French toast, strawberry waffles, and chocolate chip pancakes — and is only available at Target this Halloween season for $2.50 per 15-ounce bag. Initial reviews say the waffle flavor tastes like artificial strawberry, the pancakes flavor tastes like chocolate and a bit of butter, and the aroma of the French toast flavor is “very reminiscent of a Yankee Maple Pancake candle.”
We’re just disappointed that Brach’s failed to include artificially flavored chicken and waffles, avocado toast, and cheesy Bloody Mary. Perhaps next Halloween.
