Growing up in Sweden, as kids we ate candy corn.  We got a lot of it whenever my mom watched her favorite Elvis movies on television. She wanted to focus on the film so she’d placate us with sweets to keep us occupied. Actual corn was something we ate in the summertime. My mom was from the only place warm enough to produce corn. We always ate it warm served with butter. I loved eating corn as a kid. It pops on your teeth and I love eating it with my hands. The corn here is Mexican inspired, charred and sweet.
