Every Halloween, party-throwers, partygoers and trick-or-treaters head out into the streets to harvest their fair share of delicious candy corn. These little yellow, orange and white treats are an iconic Halloween holiday candy and their legacy that goes back more than a century.
According to the story, George Renninger, a candy maker at the Wunderlee Candy Company in Philadelphia, invented the delightful tricolor candy in the 1880s. The Goelitz Confectionery Company brought the candy to the masses at the turn of the 20th century. The company, now called Jelly Belly Candy Co., has the longest history in the industry of making candy corn — although the method has changed, they still use the original recipe.
Candy corn starts as a mixture of sugar, fondant, corn syrup, vanilla flavor, and marshmallow crème. This mixture is melted into liquid candy, called slurry and is colored and run through a cornstarch molding process to create each yummy kernel. Wooden trays filled with cornstarch are imprinted with rows of candy corn molds, where the layers are individually deposited from bottom to top.
