History of candy corn

BY ZAK BOLICK

The National Confectioners Association celebrates National Candy Corn day October 30. The trade association claims candy corn was invented in 1880s by a Wunderlee Candy Company employee named George Renninger. Wunderlee was reportedly the first to produce the candy, followed by the Goelitz Candy Company (now the Jelly Belly Candy Company) has been producing the tri-colored candies since 1898. The original name for candy corn is “chicken feed.”
