My mum picked up a bag of candy corn the other day. As I was munching on it I suddenly realized how many memories are tied to this little treat. It seems so quintessentially October to me, and I instantly think back to all those years of trick-or-treating as a child: venturing out in the crisp, cool air; a coat stuffed beneath my costume; the excitement of counting and sorting my candy stash at the end of the night. I love it! Pumpkin-faced taffy carries similar connotations, but I can't seem to find any this year. I hope it hasn't gone the way of the dodo, if you catch my drift. Do you have foods that take you back to certain moments in your life?
In other news, I'm debating whether or not to dressed up for Halloween since I haven't done so in nearly a decade. Do you have a costume yet? I'd love to hear what/who people are going as this year!
