Here's a Halloween fright: Price of candy corn spikes 3 percent10/19/2012
Candy corn is gonna cost you this Halloween — and we’re not talking about cavities or putting on pounds. The price of the waxy, sugary, day-glow treat is up 3 percent, thanks to that nasty drought wreaking havoc with corn crops and boosting the price of the corn syrup and oils that go into the candy. Folks on Twitter are taking the news hard: “The economy is doomed,” tweets @WarnerCrocker, while others blame everything from President Obama to price-gouging. But don’t even think of cutting back on Halloween, or you’ll likely find yourself cleaning up a mess of eggs and shaving cream the morning after. As far as kids are concerned, eating candy corn is an inalienable right. [Source]
