  1. Oh lord… I just tried their “Caramel Apple” candy corn. I don’t know why I bother – who really likes candy corn at all, let alone the weird seasonal (wait – isn’t all candy corn seasonal?) flavors. Oh… I see, they’re limited edition, not seasonal. Special.

    The smell of fake, super-sweet, FAKE apple was overwhelming upon opening it. If scent alone would prevent me from wanting to taste something – this one would do it. Not foul like feet or rotten corpses or durian (yep, I’m redundant) but just cloying and fake and… UGH.

    Naturally, I tasted them anyway. They’re actually not bad, the faux apple flavor is muted compared to the rich faux caramel. Buttery, or butterscotchy. Not bad, and the texture is nice if you’re into it. But I had six total and that was probably five more than I really wanted.

    5/10 (generously… bag nose grope alone should take off 7 stars)
