The official colours of Halloween may be orange and black, but for the purposes of this season, we're adding some yellow and white into the mix.
Candy corn has been declared the flavour of fall, thanks both to big corporations and individual tastes. As reported by Time, once Oreo launched their limited edition candy corn cookies — available only at Target — it was only a matter of time before others, like coffee shops and bagel stores started in with their own creations.
Now there's not a lot of nutritional value to the tiny triangles (read: none), but they do definitely have their fans. We rounded up some of the web's best recipes created using candy corn, just in time to make for your Halloween party or, well, your Saturday afternoon.
