Sugar, Corn Syrup and Salt...



What in the world could these three ingredients create? Candy Corn! Does anyone really eat candy corn or is it like the Christmas fruit cake that is re gifted from one home to the next? My Dad LOVED candy corn! And as soon as they appeared in the stores a bag would inevitably surface at our house!

There was something about chewing little colorful balls of wax that made me grimace.... and to this day I still grimace... But I LOVE looking at them. They are so colorful and fun! So when I saw this Friendship Jar Filler set from Papertrey Ink, I had to bite! (Pun intended)...

I hope to revisit some of those fond fall memories I have... And yes, maybe I will even eat some candy corn in my Dad's honor! Hope you make it a wonderful day!
