I love candy corn. I even love those little candy corn pumpkins that come out this time of year. But, I never could have imagined that candy corn has its own holiday. Surprise!

National Candy Corn Day is this Tuesday (Oct. 30), so whether you love or hate the sugar-packed treat, you’ll have to stomach the sight of it for at least a day.

Check out a few random facts about candy corn via Candy-Corn.info below, as we count down  to Halloween!

  • One serving of candy corn contains only about 140 calories
  • Candy corn has 3.57 calories per kernel
  • More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billion pieces — enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end.
  • Halloween accounts for 75% of the annual candy corn production
  • A cup of candy corn has fewer calories than a cup of raisins.
