It's Corny

Phillies win.

World Series Game 5: Tampa Bay 3 -- Phillies 4

Cole "What a Drool" Hamels was World Series MVP.

Nice that the Phillies could win at home. Always good.

Goodbye baseball. See you in the spring.

Today is National Candy Corn Day. It's available year round, but obviously is more popular around Halloween. The National Confectioners Association estimate 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold each year. Here is everything you wanted to know about candy corn but were afraid to ask.

**One serving of candy corn contains only about 140 calories

**Candy corn has 3.57 calories per kernel

**More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billion pieces -- enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end.

**Halloween accounts for 75% of the annual candy corn production

**A cup of candy corn has fewer calories than a cup of raisins.

**Candy Corn was invented by George Renninger and produced by the Wunderlee Candy
Company in the 1880's.

**Candy corn isn't just for Halloween there is also: Reindeer corn for Christmas (red, green, and white), Indian corn (it's chocolate and vanilla flavored), Cupid corn for Valentine's Day (red, pink, and white), Bunny corn for Easter (pastel-colored)

The Bloggie Doggie wants to know "Do you hope to find candy corn in your Halloween bucket this year?"

Have a sweet day people!
