It's Halloween, which means candy corn's days are pretty much up for the year. But Brach's is trying to make candy corn an every-holiday kind of treat by releasing a winter candy corn/Buncha Crunch hybrid that will leave you scratching your head.
This was spotted by Instagrammer Junk Food Mom and it's already started making the rounds on online candy stores. It's made up of peppermint candy corns, which apparently exist and are red and white, mixed with Buncha Crunch Pieces. The combination sounds like it'll be a mix of minty and chocolatey, which has been a huge trend for the holidays, alongside crunchy and chewy.

Brach's Peppermint Candy Corn & Milk Chocolate Buncha Crunch
You may remember that Brach's had a similar product that came out for Halloween with its traditional mini candy corn mixed with Buncha Crunch. Apparently that was a huge hit because now we're getting this.
You can score this mash-up for $3.50 on All City Candy. We've reached out to Brach's to see if you will be able to get this in stores ahead of the Holiday Season and will update this post if we hear back. The fall version eventually made its way to stores so chances are this one will, too.
Ya know, this might get some haters, but I truly respect candy corn for trying to reinvent itself. It's been around since 1898 so we love to hear a 121-year-old reinventing herself. You go candy corn, good for you candy corn!
