Calling All Children Of The Candy Corn!

Candy Corn Crew, unite! Gather ’round children of the candy corn! Candy corn gets a bad wrap, but there are those of us who know it is THE treat of the season. “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to identify other candy corn lovers out in the wild?” Well, here it is, wear it loud and proud, 1-inch enamel pin for those in the know. Are you a brow-beaten member of the most royal order? An appreciator of the sweet saccharine, one-true-corn?

Get those pre-orders in so we can get these out before Halloween. Pins are live on the HorrorGirl Problems Etsy Shop.
