Oh, my mom sent me some American candy in the mail.
What was it?
Well it's called Candy Corn.
I want to try some! I planted some in Farmville, but I don't know what it is.
I very much enjoyed the fact that she had only heard of it through FarmVille. I knew that game was educational.
After trying some and deciding it was delicious she did two things. First, she asked how it got its name (for which I actually had no answer*) and then she took a picture of it to send to her husband. I decided a picture wasn't enough, so I gave her the rest of the bag to take home so he could try it. I'm just that nice. (To adequately assess my level of nice-ness in this scenario, you should know that I really, really like candy corn.)
*In case you were wondering (as I am sure you were) candy corn was named so because the genius who invented it thought that it looked like a kernel of corn. Well a very large kernel of corn. Three times as large in fact. Thank you Wikipedia.
