Ok, so GET THIS! Mark was reading Reader’s Digest (he’s the reader in the family, i’m definitely the one that goes for the pictures! ha!) and he says, Wow…listen to this. Now, he knows I love candy corn and I wait for halloween for it to come out! Come to think of it, I kind of have a favorite candy with each holiday, that I wait for….it’s speckled jelly bean eggs for easter, conversation hearts for valentines day, etc! I never realized that until now! Ok, anyway…I digress, as usual! SO, the CANDY CORN story!! He says, “do you know why you have never seen an advertisment or promo ad for CANDY CORN!?! I say, “NO”, simultaneously racking my minds library of ads I’ve seen in my life to realize, he’s RIGHT, I’ve never seen a CANDY CORN advertisement. He says, “that is because ALL the candy corn that was EVER made was made in 1911 and they have NEVER made any more since! So, they only have soo much and have to distribute it evenly and slowly…..so they can’t advertise it or they would RUN OUT”. Of course, my immediate reaction is, THAT IS SUCH A LIE!!! Although, I hadn’t really ever thought reader’s digest was known to LIE!! So, then I can’t help but say, “so what you are saying is that those HUGE metal cylinders that you see in the middle of fields as you are driving on the highway or a country road are full of the CANDY CORN SUPPLY FOR THE WORLD!?!” I mean…get SERIOUS!!! Although, if that is true….watch out because I’m going to go raid one of those metal things!! Isn’t that CRAZY??? Honestly, I don’t totally believe it…but I did read it with my own two eyes!! So, there is your shocking fact of the day, if, in fact, you consider that shocking OR you consider that to be a fact!
