REVIEW: Brach’s Funfetti Candy Corn

Brach s Funfetti Candy Corn Package

What is it?

Brach’s has brought us Funfetti Candy Corn to join the seasonal counterparts of Funfetti Jelly Beans and Funfetti Candy Canes.

Brach’s is the best brand of candy corn (at least that I have tried), so I’m happy it’s the one taking on this challenge.

How is it?

Honestly, I’m not sure if I’ve ever had an officially licensed Funfetti cake. But I have eaten plenty of cake.

And this candy corn really does taste like cake!

Or rather, it takes like frosting. But haven’t we all wanted to eat frosting by the spoonful out of a can? This candy corn allows us to do that without the shame.

Of course, frosting is just intense sweetness without a particularly strong flavor. The same could be said about candy corn. So Funfetti candy corn isn’t that different than regular candy corn.

Anything else you need to know?

Candy corn is usually known for its vibrant colors, so it’s a bit surprising they opted for drab shades of yellow and pink for the Funfetti variety. That’s not fun! But the edible confetti pieces help out.

Conclusion:

Funfetti Candy Corn tastes like cake icing. But if you snuck some of this flavor in with regular candy corn, the eater probably wouldn’t notice much of a difference. I enjoy eating Funfetti Candy Corn, but it is not better or worse than its ordinary Brach’s counterpart.

  1. I associate Funfetti more with the frosting than the cake anyways, so I’m glad they went (and successfully landed) that route.

    Were the confetti pieces noticeably crunchy/texture-y (?) like the sprinkles on top of the frosting cans? Or were they mostly just visual with little tactile/taste difference?

    Thanks for the review.

  2. Great review, Mark! I’m a fellow lifelong fan of Brach’s candy corn and your review made these sound terrific.
    Keep up the great reviews!

    1. The candy corn definitely tasted more like frosting than the candy canes did. (I never tried the jelly beans, so I don’t know what they were like.)

  3. I don’t know my taste buds are off. Doesn’t taste like cake muchnto me. To me it has a sour bitter tasting coating taste like grapefruit.but once I’m past the coating it taste sweet maybe like cake or icing.
