farley’s candy corn

UPDATE: I’ve decided to open up a Candy Corn Blog. Stop by and say hello!

candycornThis time of year reminds me of my favorite time of the year.

Wait, let me try starting this over. That made no sense.

I love the fall. Temps cool off. Leaves change colors (in Florida it’s all relative). And out comes the candy corn!

Man I love me some candy corn. Candy corn is to me like jelly beans are to Ronald Reagan. Seriously, if I were President, candy corn would be the Presidential candy. And like Ol’Ronny, it wouldn’t just be any candy corn (his jelly beans were JellyBelly’s), mine would only be Farley’s.

Now my beautiful wife would incorrectly say that Brach’s is the best. Although she’s dead wrong, I won’t delete any comment she makes. I’m just that kind of guy. But she’ll be wrong — just like the lot of you who dare say any other brand than Farley’s is superior candy corn!

You think I’m joking? I’m not. And I can’t find any Farley’s candy corn anywhere! Well, I did find a 5-lb bag on the internet and I was also able to add some to my Amazon Wish List!

But I need to find the local stuff. You know, hand-picked candy corn by Mr. Farley himself.

I can’t vouch that the photo above is Farley’s or an impostor. Only juushika would know.

  • Brach’s IS the best! And you’re the one that’s wrong!.

    I’m a prophet.

    Note I didn’t say I’m prophetic. Some wise-crack would turn that word into something worse.

  • You’re not prophet. You know we have the same argument about Candy Corn every year!

  • rob

    sigh. true’dat.

  • i hate candy corn. and jelly beans.

  • Mix that candy corn and some salty peanuts together in your candy dish. Yummy.

  • Farley’s official web site is http://www.farleysandsathers.com/default.htm, and it appears that the Candy Corn is now sold under the Sather’s brand not Farley’s.

  • Leah

    I too hate Candy Corn. Doesn’t matter what brand.

  • rob

    You candy corn haters need to just…eat circus peanuts.

  • Rob, I bought candy corn last night, and I think it’s your fault.

  • rob

    @Jack: what kind did you get?

  • Wal-Mart brand. It said it was made with real honey, but it was the only kind we saw on the candy wall opposite the registers.

  • Yup. Mix in peanuts for me…had my first last year and LOVE it!

  • Donna

    FARLEY’S is superior to Brach’s and I can’t find it. Thanks for sharing were I might find some……….

  • rob

    Ugh! I STILL can’t find it. I know that Sather’s bought them out or whatever, but all I can find is Brach’s.

  • BRACHS IS THE ENEMY! i dont think anyone realizes how bad it is and how amazing farley’s is. i’ve had this fight many a time with arrogent people who have no idea what they are talking about. i agree 2109841029384-38904% with you that FARLEYS KICKS THE ASS OF ALL!!!!!!!

    i can always find farley’s in party city, if it helps anyone!! in auntumn anyway!!

    i can’t tell you how much you making this post means to me!! seriusly!

    au revoir.

    farleys is made with honey…..it was on the bag i tried at halloween…..now i’m trying to track down more on the web…..definately better than the rest.

  • chris

    Brach’s is increadably horrible! It tastes like wax, it is so nasty! Farley’s is the best thing ever I love it and I wait for it every year! Howevwer I have the same problem I can’t find it anywhere. I was searching it online that’s how I found this.

  • There is no better brand than Farleys.. I am on the hunt now for a tub of candy corn. I wish I could eat this stuff all year round!

  • Connie

    Farley is by far the best. It is the ONLY Candy Corn

  • Katy

    I love Candy corn and find it impossible to get in the UK. Brach’s is most definately the best I have tried but if someone wants to send me some Farleys so I can join the debate…feel free! In fact, don’t bother I just followed the link tot he Farleys and Sathers website and they are the same company…surely they are also the same candy corn!?!

  • christen

    So I don’t think I shared this with my fellow Farley’s fiends but you can get small bags of Farley’s at Shoprite (it may vary in different states and regions…iIdont know I haven’t tested it) so you can really get it year round when you get that craving for it, which is usually the case!

    To Katy, I don’t know if that website will ship you candy corn cause I’ve never been on it, but if you can’t get it, I’d be happy to mail some to you and share the Farley’s love.
    My email is: christeninharmsway@gmail.com incase you can’t buy it online

  • dogluver

    I totally agree. Farley’s is the only candy corn I will buy. I am having trouble finding it & refuse to buy Brach’s.

  • sandi

    Farley’s is most definitely the best! I found your blog while searching for Farley’s online, because I can’t seem to find my favorite candy corn anywhere! Every year I always make a special trip to Party City to buy it and this year all they had was Brachs…no Farley’s!!!

    I want my Farley’s fix!!!!!!

  • Vicki Connolly

    Thank God there are other Candy Corn Connoisseurs out there.
    There is only ONE – Farley’s!!!
    What wrong with you other clowns?

  • Karly

    I TOTALLY agree with you! Farley’s is the best and it is impossible to find. Everyone I know thinks I am crazy and says that they all taste the same. I can’t believe anyone would say that. There is clearly a huge difference!

  • Vicki

    Now that Halloween is over, I must confess that I was able to order Farley’s via the web.
    BUT – are there otheres of you out there hate the red & green or orange and brown stuff that stores try to pass off as candy corn during Christmas & Thanksgiving? Man, mass merchandisers must think we are not descriminating candy corn lovers. There is even BUNNY CORN at Easter & it sucks too!

  • Mickey

    Dear Farley Lover,
    My Sister and I were just commenting on the upcoming Season and the best thing
    about Fall is Farley's Candy Corn !! Without a doubt !!
    We cannot find it any more and we lower our standards and buy Brach's but your
    “beautiful wife” might be wrong. Just possibly….

    I am going to continue my search for Farley's. Has the world gone mad ?? Who
    has hidden the Farley's ???
    Corny in Connecticut

  • Yeah, I've pretty much given up on finding Farley's. Sigh. But at least I
    can find Candy Corn again!

  • KEELEE

  • KEELEE

    YES! Farley's Indian corn is my favorite. Way better than Brach's. Much smoother flavor. Brach's just tastes like molded corn syrup, but Farley's has a flavor and is not so sweet. I am glad to find others who feel the same. Let's hope I can find some on the internet!!

  • Jan

    You are sooooooooooo right! Farley's is the BEST, but hard to find. It tastes like the candy corn when I was a kid (long time ago). Brach's has no flavor compared to Farleys!!!!!!!

  • SHARI923

    HAHA, I AGREE, I LOVED FARLEY'S AND MY FAMILY THINKSI AM NUTS, FOR AWHILE I FOUND OUT THAT SHOPRITE HAD THAT FARLEYS, BUT NOT ANYMORE. I THINK THEY WERE BOUGHT OUT BY SATHERS. I USED TO BUY THE PLASTICS TUBS. HAVENT FOUND ANYTHING CLOSE SINCE, ITS BEEN A FEW YEARS. I AM ON A MISSION, MAYBE COSTA RICA WILL HAVE THEM, GOING THERE IN A WEEK.
