Spooky time is right around the corner, and while there may be a pandemic, it may not be enough to deter people from getting their Hallow’s Eve spirits up. Trick or Treating may be riskier now (and definitely not because of the monsters and stuff!), but you can always enjoy sweets in the safety of your house.

And for the time being, Halloween masks might have to make room for a more important sort of mask.

Thankfully, treating yourself to some sweets at home isn’t going to put any risk of exposure on you. Most of your trick or treaters will already have masks on anyway.

Unlike the witches, ghouls, ghosts and monsters that people dress up as, that wretched plague can’t get you if you’re inside. Even if it’s way scarier.

Now it’s time to turn our attention to the candies themselves. Specifically, Candy corn!

Sweet, triangle-shaped and known for those iconic yellow, orange and white colors, candy corn is almost as synonymous with Halloween season as pumpkins. Something about the color orange, probably.

It’s not as household a name as lollipops, gummy bears or chocolate bars, but that all changes whenever summer turns to fall and the spirit of Hallow’s Eve raises its spooky head.

And this year, when things are already getting crazier each month, there’s a new darker variety of the classic candy that fits the mood of 2020 to a tee. Meet the Blackberry Cobbler candy corn!

With a black-purple-white palette compared to the original’s yellow-orange-white, the blackberry cobbler variant is like candy corn in its goth or emo face.

It’s like Wham! compared to MCR.

Candy Corn or Blackberry Cobbler Candy Corn

Though candy corn isn’t for everyone, and that goes without saying. This candy is as polarizing as the Star Wars trilogies, and adding a black variant into the mix should be interesting.

Will it sway the opinions of the candy corn critics, or make them double down? Could it turn away lovers of classic candy corn for being too different, much like a band trying a new sound? It’s anyone’s call, really.

Imagine the confusion, shock and surprise on your Trick or Treater’s faces when you drop some Gothic candy corns into their bags. It’ll be more than worth the cost of buying them, which you can for $5 a pound at Halfnuts.

If you’re the anti-social or introverted type, you could always just buy them for yourself too.

They’d be great to snack on while listening to your quarantine playlist of emo rock songs. Or death metal. Really, anything that fits the color black.

In fact, since black goes with everything, these might be worth checking out just for the aesthetic value. Yeah the taste may not be special, but it sure looks good. And sometimes that’s more important. Not many people can say that their candy matches their boots.

Whether your feelings towards candy corn are positive or negative, it’d still be a welcome change to get other creative color and flavor spins on other candies.

I like the sound of Goth gummy worms and monochrome M&Ms myself. In the meantime, more people need to hear about these Blackberry candy corns. Maybe then it’ll create more demand for color-variant candies as per the rules of economics.

It may be a more than a month ’till Halloween, but it’s not too early to start candy shopping and planning. Give the share button a click and let your friends know about stylish black candy corns too!
