We Tried Thanksgiving Flavored Sweet Corn and It Sucked
I usually don’t like to spoil the ending of these videos, but it’s the journey, not the destination, that makes this taste test so “fun” (for you, not for me). It has been a while since I tasted myself, but at one time I was known as the “leading national journalist for the Oreo.” (At least that’s how I thought of myself.)
The Oreos review was an enjoyable job. Even the bad ones, like Swedish fish, had some positive qualities (usually cookies). Try some fresh and unusual candy corn? Not so much. Candy corn has never been my favorite candy, although combining it with honey-fried peanuts makes it that much tastier and even more enjoyable, so it was nice to introduce Joel (a famous candy corn hater) to this Butterfinger- like pair . This provided an enjoyable moment between friends before the horror show that followed.
I guess the best candy corn on the market wasn’t enough for Brach’s. For reasons I don’t understand, they decided to create a candy corn bag with six new flavors, each representing a different aspect of the Thanksgiving meal. There’s turkey, minced meat, green beans, sweet potato pie, ginger-glazed carrots, and cranberry sauce, and overall it turns out that the Yankee Candle presentation went horribly wrong. (Just kidding. The reasons are clear. This is because mannequins like me will buy this “just to see”.)
I will not tell you my beloved (if you can call her that at all) and I will not tell you what I hated the most. You will need to watch the video if you want to learn this. If you love to watch me suffer and who doesn’t? I think you will be pleased. In the end, I did it so you don’t have to, but I did it for the attention too, and it would be downright cruel to keep it from me.
