Halloween Blog Hop Day 4!

Happy Monday here from Blogland... where we are on our 4th Day of the Halloween Blog Hop!  I hope you had time to go and print off Tracy's darling stitched tag project!  I think they'd be the perfect little gift for all your "ghoulfriends"!!!

 While we were working at the shop this weekend, we were realizing that most of the shop girls love candy corn!  So I thought I would do a little research and find some fun facts to share with you about that sweet treat everyone loves! 

Fun Facts About Candy Corn!!!

  • Candy corn has been made with the same recipe by the Jelly Belly Candy Company since around 1900.
  • What's in that recipe, exactly? Sugar, corn syrup, and marshmallow.
  • One serving (about 30 pieces) has 140 calories, the equivalent of three miniature Hershey bars.
  • The National Confectioners Association reports that more than 35 million pounds were manufactured in 2005, amounting to almost 9 billion kernels.
As you're thinking about candy corn... I thought I would also share this quick and easy recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction, that my family enjoys!  It's the perfect combo of sweet & salty, all wrapped up in one!


It's time to get on those brooms again and fly on over to Sheri, from Calico Moon's site to see what she has created for our awesome hop!  At the time I posted this- the pattern wasn't up (it's 2 am!) so if it is not there... I would give her a little time to get it on the site!!!  


Let's meet back here at the same bat time tomorrow!  Enjoy your day!

That's a lot of candy corn! I had no idea Jelly Belly made them, or that they had been around that long! What a treat, because I didn't know what's in them. Now, knowing it's only about 5 calories for each piece, I can cheerfully put a bowl of them on top of the microwave and nibble as I pass by ... one at a time! Thank you! Thanks for all the wonderful projects being shown, too.

I love candy corn! If you eat too much of it (not that I ever would!) and get a sugar buzz, eat a spoonful of peanut butter. It helps in stabilizing your sugar levels! Or you can take a 15 minute walk, or better yet, do both!!

Thank you for all the recipes and 'treats' so far....
