One of the most quintessential Halloween treats is candy corn. It was invented in the 1800s by George Renninger, and the Goelitz Confectionary Company began manufacturing the sugary kernels in 1898 in Illinois.

A serving of candy corn is 19 pieces and will add 140 calories to your calorie count, if you are counting. So, now you know.
