I don't think we have candy corn in Australia. At least not that I've come across. What is it's relationship to - say - jelly babies?
Jelly babies, at least the ones I've eaten, are slightly thicker in consistency than gummy bears or other gummy/jelly candies, sort of like the filling of a jelly bean without the hard shell. Whereas US gummy bears tend to be very soft and even stretchable to some extent, jelly babies tend to be much less elastic while still being relatively soft, though if jelly babies are allowed to dry out they become pretty friable.

Candy corn are almost nothing like that. Ideally, they should be smooth (no crystallization of the internal sugar), but the ideal often falls down in practice. The inside is completely firm, a bit like very dry fondant, and the outside has a thin, glossy glaze. Traditionally, they have a yellow cap-like portion, an orange body, and a white tip. Their flavor is meant to be like a mix of butter, marshmallow, vanilla, and honey, unless you get one of the more niche varieties (which usually have a different set of colors.) Though the niche varieties are rarer, I'd say the most common variation uses a brown "cap" (or brown body) which is chocolate-flavored.

I think the one with the tank on the soccer field is what we had here. The speed-walker one was cancelled for crossing a line, and I don't think I've seen it before: Mr T Snickers ad pulled for being offensive to gay people
I can see other gay people being offended by that ad, and the line did catch my attention, but I thought the ad was pretty funny.

Edit: The article mentioned a Heinz ad that also got pulled so I looked it up. It was one of the sweetest things I've seen in a little while.

That kind of one true candy talk will get you into trouble. Then you’ll have to fake ragequit for the attention before you can start another thread.
Gonna be honest, I never understood the wax lips. They don't even taste sweet! They're literally just wax. Some actual candle wax tastes better than that!

(Edit: To be clear, do not eat most candle wax. Most candles are not made from properly edible waxes. Eating a small amount of regular paraffin wax usually won't harm you, that's why we have birthday candles, but eating larger amounts can cause intestinal blockage and other problems, and the fragrances or dyes used in candles may not be safe for human consumption.)

You just love all kinds of nasty dont'cha?
You misunderstand! I think chocolate candy corn is a horrible idea! I also think pickle-flavored Peeps are a horrible idea.

Nevertheless, a recently-departed friend sent me this:

(Don't worry, it was an April Fools joke.)
