Pumpkin spice is all the craze right now…pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice muffins, and even pumpkin spice Brussels sprouts. However, many people have forgotten the quintessential food of fall: candy corn.

As a candy corn connoisseur, I made it my personal mission to find as many candy corn flavored foods as I could get my hands on. I had members of our Spoon team taste test these candy corn flavored foods (so you don’t have to). We had our Editorial Director Molly, Creative Director Lauryn, Community Manager Bridgette and Writer Ryan gave us their thoughts, then we ranked ’em all. Here’s what the experts’ palates decided.
