According to the National Confectioners Association candy companies will create almost 35 million pounds of candy corn. This equates to approximately 9 billion individual pieces of candy corn! Woah, that’s a lot of Candy Corn.
In 1950 a pound of Candy Corn cost about 50 cents. At that rate the 35 million pounds of candy would cost $17.5 million. Today a pound of candy corn costs approximately $3 per pound. Which means that it would cost $105 million for all of the candy corn in the world.
That means for less than .002% of his net worth Bill Gates can buy all the candy corn in the world.
3. That actually would not be a bad idea to improve the nutritional value of Halloween candy for kids. Given that 19 pieces of candy corn is the equivalent of the sugar levels found in a can of Coca-Cola.
It’s okay though at least Candy Corn is in fact fat free.
4 There are multiple variations of Candy Corn aside from the traditional Orange, White, and Yellow kernels. Now you can enjoy Candy Corn all year around.
