The newest entry in my top ten favorite ways to die is death by candy corn. About 4 pounds should do it according to what they said. Actually, I forgot the exact number they said so I looked on Wikipedia, where it says 29.7 g/kg. I weigh about 63 1/2 kg. so a tad over 4 pounds should do it if I'm at the mid-point. It wouldn't be easy, though. I start getting sick after half a pound of chocolate, and I can't get much past a pound.
I love candy corn. Pure sugar with a bit of food coloring and wax. It's one of only very few non-chocolate sweets I'll eat, not counting fruit, which is my main sweet. Apple pie, pecan pie, licorice, candy corn. I'm not even slightly tempted by most non-chocolate sweets.
