WASHINGTON, D.C. – It’s that time of year when everyone has strong opinions.
About the upcoming presidential election? Na. The pandemic? Not so much.
With Halloween, we’re talking that lightning rod of all candy – candy corn.
People either love it or hate it.
According to a new survey done by the National Confectioners Assocation, Gen X (born 1965 to 1980) are the most likely to enjoy candy corn, with 58 percent reporting that they like the iconic but controversial Halloween treat.
Baby Boomers (1946-1964) trail shortly behind at 56 percent.
Candy is less popular with younger generations with less than half of millennials (1981-1996) and Gen Z (1997-2010) reporting that they like candy corn.
