Candy Corn or Mellowcreme Pumpkins? And, win my book!

Cakespy Snackdown

It's a simple question, really. Which do you prefer: Candy corn, or Mellowcreme Pumpkins?

Weigh in by commenting on this post or on my facebook page, and you could win a *signed* copy of my amazing book, CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life. There's a recipe for homemade candy corn in the book, by the way. 

You don't have to leave a reason, but I would be interested in hearing it if you're so inclined.

This giveaway will be open for one week; I will close it for entries on Tuesday, October 23rd at 5pm EST. Due to high shipping rates overseas, I am only able to offer this giveaway to residents of US and Canada. If you leave a comment on this site, don't panic if it doesn't show up right away: comment moderation is enabled. Good luck!

they totally taste the same to me, but I like the pumpkins because they're bigger!

Pumpkins for sure! They are a classic and they only come in the one flavor variation (I think!) unlike candy corn which has branched out a little too much. Just wish I knew how to use then in a recipe besides as a decoration/topper.

I always love candy corn! I like to eat it one color at a time. I start at the top and make my way down the delicious candy pyramid. The pumpkins are good too, but its a little too much for my taste. Maybe if they were a little smaller. My votes for candy corn!

Candy corn for sure. Pumpkins are way too big of a commitment to mellowcreme.

Candy corn all the way!!

MELLOWCREME PUMPKINS, all the way! Here are just a few reasons why:
1) There are less of them in the assorted bags. Naturally this is because they are more valuable (5+ CC for each Pumpkin!)
2) They are big enough so that you actually get to experience a soft center. Candy corn is the same all the way through.
3) They are miniature! Candy corn is even bigger than real corn. Small and cute always wins!
4) They are the same shape as Lil' Cuppie! Clearly this is a sign of greatness.

Pumpkins! Because there is more sugar per bite.

I am a candy corn fan!!

Candy corn, mainly because I love it, secondly because I don't know what a mellowcreme is.

Definitely the pumpkins and I have to agree because there is just more to eat!

Pumpkins. I have an affliction for marshmallows. Plus, you can eat more of them per sitting because they are mostly air. :)

Candy corn - they're so awful, they're awesome!

Homemade Candy Corn...oh my....I just had a thought...I wonder if anyone has ever made Candy Corn Ice Cream....right? Oh your book looks wonderful! :-)
Really, I don't care for either. *GASP* I know..... But if I decide to munch on a few during Halloween festivities, I always go for the corn. The pumpkins are just to hard to eat! You can eat candy corn one fun color at a time, or a whole handful!

CANDY CORN!!! Why? Because the pumpkins are just gross :)
October 16 | Unregistered CommenterChristina
That's a tough decision. I guess I would prefer candy corn, just because it's a classic Halloween candy. I also enjoy its flavor variations, such as caramel, and chocolate.

Mellowcreme pumpkins because I love pumpkins more than I love corn lol
October 17 | Unregistered CommenterAmber
Mellowcreme candy pumpkins! These tiny morsels are creamy, unlike the hard candy corn. Also, you can melt them into krispy treats or dunk them into chocolate!! Yummers :)

candy corn, no question. It's just the right amount of triangle-shaped sticky sweetness. Entering the spherical world of the pumpkin mellowcremes-- too much volume, and therefore too much sticky sweetness.
October 17 | Unregistered Commenterfeaster
Pumpkins. Personally, I feel that when eating candy corn, a great amount must be consumed in order to feel properly satisfied. In contrast with the heftiness of mellowcreme pumpkins...wait, I still can't get enough.

Guess I just have to take that recipe from the Cakespy book and make one GIANT pumpkin.
