(CNN) - Just in time for Halloween, Monday, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day.
Love them or hate them, the candy is popular this time of year.
George Renniger of the Wunderle Candy Company created the treat in the late 1800s. His goal was to celebrate the beauty of corn and the autumn colors.
The candy is made using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant and palm wax.
