It is one of the most divisive candies out there but love it or hate it, today is National Candy Corn Day!

The rather simple confection is made with little more than sugar, water, marshmallows and wax.

If you’ve ever wondered where candy corn gets its name, it’s not because it’s made using corn syrup, it’s because of its resemblance to corn kernels.

If you stack the candies up, you can make a whole corn cob!

The sweet and chewy treat has been around since the 1800s.
