Spot the M&M!

Since today is National M&M Day, we have an appropriate quiz. Below is a photo of that worst of all confections, candy corn (otherwise known as “sugared paraffin”). In this picture is a single M&M. Can you spot it? I’ll put the reveal up in two hours. Hint: clearly the M&M has one of the colors of the “candy”. This was posted on the Amazon Facebook page a year ago.

First, though, a poll (you can see the responses by clicking “view results”):

    If it it orange I believe I see it. But I could be wrong.

    If I see the M&M, and I think I do, those are large candy corn. Larger than I remember anyway.

    The most important use of candy corn besides consumption (especially this time of the year): impromptu vampire fangs.

    PRO-TIP: Pointy end goes down.

    I can’t find the M&M.

      Brings up the question – Will this stuff grow if you plant it?

        Not if it contains sugar!

          I thought maybe if planted in a tooth cavity.

    A little bit hard. Reminds me of the old ‘spot the head in the coffee beans’ challenge.

    Candy corn is disgusting. “Sugared paraffin” is a spot on description.

    The M&M was easy to spot.

      Nope. Candy corn is good, but M&M’s are disgusting! All that food color: yuck.

        Oh Yeah?! 🙂

        I don’t think M&Ms are disgusting, but I don’t particularly care for them. I like chocolate (a lot), but they aren’t real chocolate! They’re milk chocolate, a desecration if ever there was one.

    Mix candy corn with dry roasted peanuts and it tastes like a Payday candy bar.

    There seems to be an awful lot of people who absolutely despise candy corn, but many do I love it.

    Anyway, this wasn’t a particularly tough “find the _____” today.

    As if candy corn weren’t scorned enough, it comes in a Trumpian palette.

    That little yellow M&M is called a Mini M&M. You can by them in little plastic tubes for kids, but some people buy bags of them to use like chocolate chips in cookies.

    Candy corn is the most honest of candies, it is molded to look like its source, corn syrup. I like it.

    Vote clarification: (I voted indifferent)

    I suspect that if candy corn were made with 25% of the sugar that is used, I would like it.

    To me, quite a lot of store-bought foods could benefit this way. Instead of using a substitute like sacharine etc., just
    put wayyyy less sugar in it.

    Candy/movie trivia:

    Because it is in black and white, many viewers do not realize that in “Psycho”, Norman Bates is munching on corn candy in much of the film. He’s pulling it out of a plain brown paper bag.

    Not only have I never tried candy corns, I’never heard about it. I don’t see an M&M, but something that suspiciously looks like a yellow Smartie, showing it’s full face. It nearly appears to hover above the mass of what I suppose is candy corn.
    Much easier than those ‘microscopic’ katydids.

    If you locked me in a room with a 55 gallon drum filled with candy corn, in one week the drum would be empty and I would be dead.
