Have y'all tried the new Oreo "Candy Corn" Limited Edition cookies now available only at Target stores? Personally, I haven't had the inclination to go track them down. Not -so-fun fact: Did you know the filling is basically Crisco and sugar? Gee makes me want to stuff a dozen down my gullet!
Kind of resembles clown jerky....
And while I think candy corn, are sort of cool looking, for me they're too sweet to eat. And no matter which color you bite off; orange, yellow, or white - each color tastes exactly the same. No fun there! I prefer to use them in decoration. For instance, fill up a glass vase or glass bowl with candy corn and add in a few candles. A perfect Halloween table topper!
Candy corn are definitely a Fall and Halloween staple and the candy aisles just wouldn't be the same without them this time of year.. And of course every year at this time, I even paint a few! My latest candy corn creation is a cute little "Trick or Treat" on a river rock. Just oozing sweetness!
Welcome to By Way of Salem. A place for Wicked Whimsies and Charming Prims! I've always loved the holiday season beginning with Halloween. I opened By Way of Salem in 2009 as a place to sell my crafts celebrating all the holidays-everything from Fall pumpkins to Easter bunnies. I've been an artist my whole life, well since I got my first box of Crayola Crayons 64 box. I enjoy sculpting, stitching, quilting, collage, jewelry, and of course painting. I LOVE to paint!
My artistic style ranges from primitive to rustic, French country, cottage, or anything that makes my heart sing.
I participate in local and out-of-town craft and art shows also, so please inquire.
And now I've added another Etsy store just for my jewelry called Salem's Charms. I specialize in hand stamped metal jewelry with fun words and quotes. Come visit me!
A portion of your purchase goes to help animals in need. I donate to various charities throughout the year, a cause dear to my heart.
Please feel free to post comments and make sure to visit me at both my Etsy stores where I'm always adding new things (or trying to!). See you soon!
