Happy Halloween season, everyone! The air is crisp, pumpkins are lining doorsteps, and children are running wild through the candy aisle of your local CVS. There's a mini-candy for every tastebud, but one holiday staple remains as contentious as ever.
Welcome to the Great Candy Corn Debate of 2017, right on time:
RT this if you are pro candy corn, go fuck yourself if you aren't.— Rachel (@Gaychel22) September 22, 2017
It's hard to explain why, but candy corn brings out a lot of anger, confusion, and despair in the hearts of people who don't like it. And every year, they fight about it on Twitter. Not sure what people did before Twitter. Maybe they just suffered in silence, thinking they were the only ones who hated the faux sugar corn. But here they are, expressing all their ire on social media:

Okay, the annual candy corn debate has begun and if you actual human monsters want to snack on diabetes candles, who am I to stop you?— Deanna Raybourn (@deannaraybourn) September 28, 2017

With this many people hating candy corn so much, it's hard to understand how it keeps getting produced.
But it's because the folks who love it are just as passionate!
