Pumpkins of the Day #2590

Rachel, Sam and Ruth came by for games tonight, and while they were here we pushed as much Halloween candy onto them as we could. These candy pumpkins are a rarer relative of candy corn, though I think they have a similar flavor and the same waxy texture.

Laurel and I watched an Internet Video of two people eating one of those five-pound gummi bears, and their final decision was that, though it still tasted good, it was just way too intense at that scale. I imagine that a pumpkin-sized candy pumpkin would be much the same – just an impossible mass of corn starch and sugar, and if it didn’t collapse to begin with it would probably cause liver failure or something similarly awful if you dared to take a hearty bite of it. Better for these candies to stay tiny, even if they’re not quite botanically accurate.

We’re starting to get pretty good at hosting friends here, which bodes well for our time in this new home.

  1. I live in South Africa and we don’t get those pumpkin sweets here, my aunt is from Kentucky and her parents sent her some of those, they are amazing. I agree with you tho, having a pumpkin sized pumpkin sweet would be deadly!
