When Brach’s candy corn miraculously make their way to store shelves letting the general American public that Halloween is near (just two months away), it’s no surprise that a bag (or eight) make it home with me.  However, I’ve always been a big believer in practicing moderation.  So instead of downing the whole bag in one sitting, I mix the sugary goodness with a few other items.  Then, it takes longer for me to finish my stash and run back to the store for more.  Genius, I tell ya.
