WW: CANDY CORN-aholic

Fall foliage. Yummy soups. Mugs of hot cider. Football season. Cozy sweaters. Corn mazes. Hayrack rides. Spiced pumpkin bread. Halloween. Haunted houses. Apple orchards. Piles of leaves. Crisp temps. So many wonderful things to be excited about this time of year...

Me? I'm giddy over all the c a n d y c o r n. {Insert smile here.} I'm head over heels. Car-azy for the stuff! Don't tell my dentist.

Don't hide. I know that I am not alone. Last week as I was grabbing blogger stats for my new sponsor page I noticed my For the Love of Candy Corn post (from last fall) was one of my most viewed pages of all time. Then out of the blue I got a comment on that post from nearly a year ago. So, I did some checking on pinterest.

If you type http://pinterest.com/source/yourdomain.com (insert your own domain where it says yourdomain) into the url you will see what is being pinned from your site. Turns out the candy corn pics and candy corn recipes were popular pins from project alicia.

These are some of our fav candy corn treats around here. You can find the candy corn bark and salty n' sweet mix recipes here.

Photobucket
You can grab the 4x6 pudding recipe card here.

And below are just a few of the fab finds on my candy corn pinterest board. Just pop over and see for yourself. People are so stinkin' creative!

(Oh, and on a side note, if you are a little pinterest addicted like myself, here's a fab tutorial from clickin moms to add that little pin button to the end of your blog posts.)

And if that wasn't enough, I happened on some gummy candy corns while standing in line at T.J. Maxx. They stared me down.

And I just had to have them. 'Cause that's what candy corn-aholics do. (Not the best pic, but you get the idea.) They tasted of butterscotch and were a hit here. Psst... check out the reflection behind me (in the above photo) of our beautiful autumn foliage.

To make matters worse, I just received the new Martha Stewart magazine to find a fun new candy corn treat to try. You'll have to stay tuned. I ran out of the peanut butter cups before I could get to it. But soon. Very soon.

You know, crazy loves company... Just sayin.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before I close I just wanted to mention that Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge begins this Friday, October 7th! This week's theme is green. You can find the complete list of upcoming themes as well as details about the challenge here. I hope you will join Rebecca (of Bumbles & Light), Kristi (of Live and Love out Loud), and me. Can't wait to see your color inspired photos!

Photobucket
And to kick off October, here's a 4x6 freebie to grab, perfect for those fall scrapbook pages perhaps? That Carol Hipps read my mind- love this quote. I'm actually compiling all of my favorite random quotes into one fab book. Do you have a fall quote you love?

Thanks for dropping by! Link your photo(s) below and then swing back later to check out a few new blogs.

  7. Mmm.... I LOVE candycorn. It is my favorite fall treat! I may totally have to make that pudding, but I will use vanilla instead of banana cream (I am not too fond of banana).

    Coincidentally, I have some of the same stuff pinned on my boards!

    ReplyDelete

  16. My grandmother once bought me 10 lbs of candy corn when she visited me at boarding school. Though I cant remember her name, I have this clear picture of one of my dorm mates sitting on the floor with her hand in the candy corn bag munching to her hearts content.

  21. I am so with you on that addiction. I bought my first bag today for a "photography project". I lied to myself that the kids would eat them and I might just have a couple.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My co-worker had a stash of candy corn in his drawer at work. Every single day of the year, he would have a 'candy corn thirty'. Ha!

    Happy WW!

  27. Wow, that pudding is awesome. Fantastic shots. I miss candy corn. Doesn't exist in NZ (I don't think). Happy WW.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have a HUGE sweet tooth, so I have to try to restrain myself from running to the store & buying up all the goodies. I like the candy corn made with honey the best.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love this! You're too stinkin' cute. :) Is it terrible that I want to buy you a Cosco sized case of candy corn? I'm such an enabler...

  32. Love, love, love the post, your picture and that shirt! OMG!! What a perfect way to describe fall, if only we weren't allergic to candy corn!! :-P

    ReplyDelete
  33. You can have mine - I don't like them :) I guess because I didn't grow up with them. I also don't like root beer flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  34. candy-corn-a-holic doesn't even begin to describe my love for candy corns!

    ReplyDelete
  51. YUM! Love the pudding recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Haha I love that! And the pudding looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  53. At least candy corn is only available once a year so you don't have to fight them all the time :). Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the candy corn recipes and photos...I think I will pattern my wedding anniversary theme after candy corn. seems fitting since it's in october...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Seriously YUM! I am going to have to go and spend some time on Pintrest so many fun ideas over there and make your mouth water pictures. Thanks for sharing. Now I feel like I need to go out to the store to pick up some more of the little pumpkins.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the look of candy corn, but it's not my favorite taste. Love all the pins of cute candy corn-inspired projects though - how inspiring!

    And p.s. you are absolutely gorgeous! Love that pic of you, you look like you fell out of the pages of a magazine :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love your candy corn post and Pinterest board!

    I obviously made a mistake in posting my morning glory picture--it came up 3 times. I'm sorry! Can you erase two of them? I don't know how to do it.
    Thanks,
    Gena

  58. LOVE your "stalk me" area! such cute buttons - but then your blog always looks SO stinkin' cute!
    Also - love the October quote - so true.
    And - how do you do your pinterest board shots? Do you search by tag or do you actually have a candy corn board?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh Alicia, I too love the corn... candy corn, Candy Corn, CANDY CORN!!!!!

  62. Cute post! I love candy corn, too!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ah, fabulous! Thanks for a great read :D

    ReplyDelete
  64. Funny!! Oh and I have never had candy corn!!! :(

    ReplyDelete
  65. This post is killing me. I LOVE candy corn, but the only vegan version I can find is $9 a pound. Eek! I guess it's better that way, or I'd probably gain 5 pounds eating it.

    ReplyDelete
  66. My heart be still- I *love* candy corn! Love!

    ReplyDelete
  67. haha! a great post, so corn's pretty popular in the states then eh? :) (I'm in the U.K) I love the knitted corn outfit best!! Great shots, all, thanks for hosting.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love candy corn - but only the "good" stuff made with honey. Brach's still makes it that way, but the cheaper brands use corn syrup which takes something out of that amazing flavor. I recently watched an hour-long documentary on the history of candy corn. My family thought I was nuts, but I enjoyed every minute of it! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love candy corn. I am going to have to check out your pinterest board.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love those gummy candy corns. All of the photos now have me craving any kids of candy corn!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love them too - it is nothing but chemicals and sugar - but it rocks. Hate that candy corn headache though when you have eaten WAY too many of them at once!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Totally not judging! I think we'll probably be sitting next to each other in the CCLA (Candy Corn Lovers Anonymous) meetings. I so love the stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Not sure how I missed linking up here yesterday, but I linked up now. And I love your post. Love your definition. Love the pictures you shared from Pinterest. I love the look of that recipe. I WILL be back.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Okay, I developed a love affair for candy corn later in life. I really think it tastes better now. I am addicted to those little creme-filled pumpkins. Pop one of those in your mouth and it really satisfies a raging sweet tooth.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I absolutely LOVE candy corn. Unfortunately I haven't had any this year. My mom used to always buy it and bring it to me while I was studying...I guess that's the downfall to moving away and going to college. hah.
    Oh, and pretty pictures too!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I feel sick after eating almost an entire bag of candy corn/pumpkin mix! Did you see they have candy corn M&Ms now? I haven't tried them yet, but I did love the candy corn kisses.
