Why Are Candy Corn Prices So High?

I like some candy corn from time to time, usually around Fall when it seems more prevalent.

So, looking it up the other day I found out it is waaaay more expensive than it normally is.

For instance:

[www.walmart.com]



What, has honey become scarce?

Looks like Ima gonna have to wait until the post Halloween sales!!

There's a sugar shortage.

But it can be found cheap if you hunt around. In particular, local drug stores always seem to have some at decent prices.

This. Gotta have corn to make high fructose corn syrup. Our local farmers who don’t irrigate have corn that is less than three feet tall.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Eating candle wax might be a good substitute. I can’t tell the difference.

Just went to the 99¢ store, they had small (12oz.) bags of candy corn for $2.99.....

Is that good, bad, or about average?
Didn't get any anyway; only noticed it because of this thread.

I got two 1lb bags October last, so the candy corn would last.

It didn't.

I'm so weak.

I'm having the same problem with Atomic Fireballs. They've gone sky high in the last year.

Wow, that is pretty crazy. Looks like someone noticed production was limited and bought up all of it.

It's just the 3rd party seller prices that have skyrocketed.

I avoid 3rd party sellers as much as possible on Amazon (and elsewhere) since their prices are often in the stratosphere.
