Things I'm Looking Forward To Doing Now That I'm British: Number Ten

10. Never having to interact with candy corn ever again. I hate myself a little for even mentioning the stuff, because I’m slightly afraid of inspiring enough curiosity in my British friends that they’ll consider importing it. I beg you, please don’t. It may look tempting at first, with its unusual triangular shape and multicoloured stripes. I assure you it is nasty. Those stripes are not indicative of any variation in flavour, which is disgustingly saccharine and plasticky all the way through. It has no business claiming any relationship with actual edible foodstuffs, it really doesn’t. I’m glad that thus far, the creep of Americanised Halloween into Britain has yet to include the introduction of candy corn, as nine years without it has been blissful.
