One of the best things about reviewing candy is that friends and family pick candy up for you while traveling. My mother-in-law brought this candy back from a recent trip to Wisconsin. I'd never heard of this brand before, so I was excited to learn more about the company and try some different candy. From their website, it looks like Eillien's has their own line of candy but also does private label candy too. Private label is the candy you see with a chain store label on it. I could not find any specifics on the Eillien's branded candy, but I can tell you what I thought of it.
This isn't a normal bag of candy corn. I think Brach's is probably the best known maker of candy corn and while I love the flavor, I do like to branch out and try new things. There are three different color combinations in Eillien's candy corn. The normal yellow/orange/white color along with a brown/red/white and brown/yellow/white combination. The colors give this mix a nice Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving feel and this candy would look great decorating a table at any time from September to November.
The brown/red/white combination has a nice apple flavor to it while the brown/yellow/white combination has a pumpkin taste to it. The yellow/orange/white tasted like "normal" candy corn flavor to us, but there's nothing on the package to tell you what flavors these are, so it left us guessing. This has a great candy corn texture, I like it a bit better than Brach's, it seems a little crisper when you bite into it. These are very sweet and very addictive. These were fun to try and I certainly wouldn't pass up free candy, it just seems to taste better. Thanks Mom!
