Let's Pause The Candy Corn War And All Agree Circus Peanuts Are THE Worst Candy Of All-Time

As fall and Halloween come around every year, the annual candy corn war begins. There are those that love candy corn and those that hate it - there is no in-between. Twitter and Facebook turn into a warzone as loved ones find themselves in a feud.

There are those who advocate for candy corn:

And then there are those who strongly advocate against candy corn:

But the real issue here? Circus peanuts. Both candy corn lovers and haters need to come together and recognize that circus peanuts are the WORST CANDY OF ALL-TIME.

Circus peanuts are those nasty, Cheeto-looking, banana-flavored, peanut-shaped "marshmallow" candies that have somehow been around for many, many years. Just by the looks and description of them, I have absolutely no idea how anyone could eat these things, let alone enjoy them.

Why are they shaped like peanuts? Why are they flavored like bananas? Why are they bright orange? Why do they exist in the first place? WHYYYY?

Oh, and it gets even "better." These peanut-shaped "marshmallow" treats also come in three other flavors and colors: Vanilla (white), lemon (yellow), and cherry (red). I can't even imagine how awful those must be. Again, I must ask, WHY?

Besides, is there anyone out there who actually likes circus peanuts? I know many people who like candy corn, but I have not heard of ONE SINGLE PERSON liking circus peanuts. So, what's the point of arguing about candy corn when these terrible things exist?

Next time you find yourself in a candy corn argument, put aside your differences and remember the real tragedy here: Circus peanuts. You may not be able to agree on whether candy corn is good or not, but we can all agree that circus peanuts are disgusting and something we MUST PUT TO AN END.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
