Yeah, it's kind of a mixture of a synthetic honey flavor and pure sugar.  I'm kind of craving it right now.  October is working its magic on me.  One thing I've never really understood about candy corn though is that it looks nothing like corn.  Maybe the one yellow end looks like a kernel, but since when does any corn actually look like that?  It doesn't look like corn, it doesn't taste like corn, it's like its own entity.

I think it's cause "Autumn-colored cones" didn't have that much of a ring to it.  :P

Actually, the "corn" may be in reference to the ridiculous amount of corn syrup that is used to make the candy corn.

This thread should be marked as "INAPPROPRIATE FOR ALL AUDIENCES."

Candy Corn is just obscene...

It doesn't even LOOK tasty, let alone the fact it tastes like Crayons mixed with sugar!

Well, that's just my opinion.  ;D

(BTW, let's not talk about how I know what Crayons taste like). :P

I ate a few crayons in my younger days. What I really like is Indian Corn, with chocolate. It has more texture in my opinion.

What exactly is candy corn, anyway?
It's corn...that tastes like candy! :D
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

That would be amazing if by some miracle we could get the whole board to be KQ characters. If I went out on the town as Graham or something... people would have no idea who I was...

But I'd be happy.

Well, the prize doesn't have to be the game, obviously, but it could be something awesome like the Suffer Lining mousepad. :)

Good idea. It's so nice to have a game company that's so directly responsive to its fanbase.

Oh, I see. The autocorrect in iOS has been problematic for me as well.

It's Halloween weekend...so let's see some pictures of costumes!

Here's one of some of my friends and I. I'm the one on the far left with the blonde and pink wig. :)
