Candycorn - did it use to taste better?

I swear - it used to have more honey flavor. Also, whatever happened to the candy corn mixes (corn, pumpkins, cats, etc) that used to have a certain number of maple flavored pieces? And does anyone recall what all the different shapes were?

3. I've been fighting the temptation to buy candy (not the crap stuff) all day.

I tell myself to stop eating shit, too, and I'm usually good about it, but Halloween won't let you NOT see the damn candy!

5. Always wait until the day after.

You won't feel a guilty knowing you bought them on sale!

4. When they took the trans-fats out of food, it just ruined the taste

Pringles now taste like potato paste.

7. I always liked the maple leaves, too!

You are right-- It used to be made with honey! From RetroCandy:

10. Sigh. Everything used to taste better. They've pretty much ruined everything.

 

Tastykakes used to taste better too. Made them with real cream in the good old days, way back when...

11. I had to sell Halloween candycorn for my school band back in the '70s

and it tasted like crap back then, too.

14. The stuff we used to get had this wonderful buttery,

almost slightly salty sweetness to it. Now it just tastes sickly sweet and weird. Yuck.

15. Yes! It WAS buttery. That's what I remember, too.

What the hell happened to candy corn? I want answers, dammit.
