The making of flavor #96, Candy Corn.
Step 1: Obtain massive amounts of candy corn. This is easy this time of year, you can’t pop into a drug store without a witch dangling in your face, and candy corn at every corner. Then we melt the candy corn down in our milk and cream.
Did you know? Candy Corn has artisanal roots, too. (Just like MilkMade!) It was originally made by hand over 100 years ago - combining sugar, corn syrup, and marshmallow. Workers had to lay each kernel, layer by layer. (Just like we pack our pints!) Today, however, it’s a little less artisanal - the recipe remains the same, though it’s now made with a mechanic molding process. Which is good because 35 million pounds of this stuff is produced annually. That’s 9 billion kernels. Holy candy corn!
