(CNN) -- Treat yourself! October 30 is National Candy Corn Day.
In the 1880s, American George Renninger came up with the candy that now is synonymous with Halloween. According to the National Confectioners Association, more than 35 million pounds of the tricolored candy will be produced this year. That means if you laid each piece end-to-end, you could circle the moon more than 20 times!
Most of the candy corn consumed at this time of year is of the traditional white, orange and yellow variety. That color combination is popular around Halloween and has made its way to more adult-friendly treats like cocktails and macarons.
Don't worry if you're craving some candy corn in months that don't rhyme with October, these days there's candy corn for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and even Easter.
