It Just Happened

I didn't go to Target looking for it. I'm not sure how it ended up in my cart. It just happened.


I don't know how I managed to find my glass pumpkin up in the attic after thinking it was lost for sure. It just happened.

I honestly can't tell you how the bag was ripped open and the contents poured into the newly cleaned glass pumpkin. It just happened.

Beats me if the lid didn't accidentally slide off the pumpkin while I was washing dishes. It just happened.

And then that candy corn was in my hand and I was distracting the girls so they wouldn't see. It just happened.

I ate 10 7 5 like 2 pieces. I'm not sure why. It just happened.

Maybe by now you have figured out that I have a wee small affinity for candy corn. Like my addiction to Pinterest, I can't explain it.

It just happened.

Yeah, it just happens to me every year about this time. . . only I never put it out in a jar. I'm worse than that--I have to keep the bag "hidden" (as if I didn't know where it was!) or else it would just happen that I would eat the entire bag within an hour or so of buying it!! Just can't help myself with those little morsels of goodness.

Oh, and for me, it must be Brach's. That's what yours looks like--am I right?

What's that Lay's potato chip saying..."you can't just eat one"...yeah...that's me and candy corn!

Haha, I don't know what it is about those sugary sweet candies that provoke drool every time I see them but I'm craving them now :-) Yum! Cute pumpkin bowl too :-)

I'm so glad to see this post!!

Once I hit that nifty 'publish your comment' button, I'm dashing to go buy myself some of that goodness!

Hmmm...sounds like someone is going around stashing candy corn in people's house. It happened here also. I guess I'll just have to eat it!

Amanda,
I feel your pain. I have finished off 2 bags already. Thank God you can only get candy corn once a year. Have to stop myself from buying more.

Candy Corn is my weakness....along with the little candy corn pumpkins. I find myself eating almost the WHOLE bag if I buy it - good thing it's only sold once a year ;)

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

No judgement here, friend. I say, eat that corn!

I actually DID go looking for it last weekend and all they had was the Indian corn at Hy-Vee. I was a little torked.

I WISH it would just happen to me! Up north in Calgary, I haven't been able to find a big bag of candy corn. Last week when Sarah, aka Thrifty Decor Chick, shared her candy corn wreath, someone in the comments wrote that if you eat them with salted peanuts it taste like a Payday bar. I am SOO going to try that. We don't get Payday bars up North here either!

Have a great day Amanda! Oh, and your glass pumpkin bowl is too cute. = )

If you want to put a twist on your candy corn mix it with equal parts peanuts. It tastes like a Payday bar. Peanuts and candy corn have become a tradition in our family.

Luckily, I am not a fan of the candy corn... unluckily, I am a fan of most every other kind of candy... and I like to buy the trick or treat candy early... "just to be prepared" ... and I *may* need to buy more by the time trick or treat arrives....

My name is Wendy and I am a Candy Corn Addict!

Got to admit...I can't relate to the candy corn addiction, but the Pinterest addiction 'just happened' to me too.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

LOL! I managed to make it out of Target today with no Halloween candy in my cart! I don't know how though because we went down at least 3 rows of candy:)

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

I love Candy Corn!!! :) Hate how those things just happen like that don't you?! haha

staci @ lizard n ladybug said...

love it! My first (because there will be more) is just ripped opened sitting on the counter. I wish it would just happen to get in my glass pumpkin, then I wouldn't be tempted to grab 10 or so every time I walk by!!

Amanda said...

oh girl! those bags ALWAYS jump into my cart every Fall. They are sneaky that way!

Prudently Painted Vintage said...

I buy a bag once a year and end up eating them all within a couple days. Ugh! Then I don't want anymore until next year. I do love them though :)

Earthtones Girl said...

I'm completely addicted to both too...Not sure which I love more...right now I'm willing to say Pinterest.

Cassie {Hi Sugarplum!} said...

yum!!!!! do you pop them in your mouth whole, or do you eat them by layer? it's impossible for me to not eat them layer by layer!

Paula said...

You only ate 10 pieces? That sounds pretty good to me. I can't stay away from it if it is in the house. My husband tried to buy some last weekend and I stopped him because I KNOW that I can't resist it. It sure does look pretty in the glass pumpkin, doesn't it?

Yummy Mummy said...

Ha! This post is so funny because so far I've resisted. But I know the time will come when... IT will happen. The allure of the candy corn does not cease.
P.S. I'm so jealous about Target. We don't have one in Santa Barbara. :( But there are rumors of one opening in the future :)

Krisitn said...

I'm absolutely addicted to candy corn too. I'll eat the whole bag. I only let myself buy one small bag a season or things get out of control real fast! Now I'm craving some thanks to you!! :)
