There are some word combinations that you immediately know are going to be disgusting without even having to experience them for yourself. Like “Carrot Top” and “sex tape.” “Live” and “donkey show.” Or “Celine Dion” and “in concert.”
So when we got word of Candy Corn’s holiday offering of Dark Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn, it just sounded strange. But odd enough that there was a slight possibility that it might actually be good. So they sent us a pound and as we opened the bag, we also opened our minds.
Ho. Ho. Holy Schamoly! It wasn’t just good, it was addictive on an almost Lohansian level.
The dark chocolate and crumbled pieces of candy cane worked perfectly with the crispy popcorn. We quickly found ourselves walking around the office giving it away to keep from eating it all and having some sort of claymation Christmas nightmare once our chocolate-riddled bodies allowed us to fall asleep.
Well, thanks Candy Corn’s, because now all the cubicle dwellers in the building are loitering around our office asking where the “magic popcorn” is.
If you’re buying it for yourself, trust us, you’ll want the largest size they offer, but you might be safer getting the mini bag. Or wiring your jaw shut. Whichever’s easier.
Prices start at $4.95 for a mini bag
