Make Bridgette Snort

Nashville 2008 062

My friend and morning show partner Bridgette is one of the funniest ladies I know, but if you’ve ever heard her get tickled, you know she sometimes snorts!  Well in the last few weeks Bridgette hasn’t snorted once.  So I decided to start a contest.  Anyone that makes Bridgette Snort again will win a great KKBN Prize!  So now that you’re caught up…Here’s a special little song to get you ready to ” MAKE BRIDGETTE SNORT!”

CANDY CORN

It’s National Candy Corn Day!

* Candy corn was created in the 1880s by George Renninger of the Wunderle Candy Company.

* The three colors of the candy are meant to mimic corn. Each piece is approximately the size of a whole kernel of corn, as if it fell off a ripe or dried ear of corn. The candy is usually tri-colored with a yellow base, orange center, and white tip, although the color combinations may vary.

* The National Confectioners Association estimate 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold each year. Although regular candy corn is most popular at Halloween, it is available year-round.

* According to candy maker Brach’s, the top branded retailer of candy corn, each year Americans eat enough Brach’s candy corn that if the kernels were laid end to end, they would circle the Earth four times.

*  Candy corn is made primarily from sugar, corn syrup and honey.
