|How can candy corn help you in a survival situation?|
You find an upturned tree that will offer shelter and you empty your pockets looking for gear that will get you through the long night. Unfortunately, you weren't carrying the ten essentials but you have excellent improvisation skills. As you search your pockets for survival gear you find a first full of candy corn that you grabbed just before heading out. "At least I have something to eat," you think. However, what other survival priorities can you satisfy with this orange sugary goodness?

Whether you have a few fishhooks stashed in your kit or have fashioned one from scavenged materials, candy corn may make an excellent lure for fishing. The bright colors attract fish in the murkiest water and a sideways piece of candy is generally minnow shaped. Best of all, candy corn doesn't dissolve in water as quickly as other sugary sweets.

If angling isn't your thing, you can also use candy corn for trapping. I recently observed squirrels stuffing their cheeks with this orange striped candy, so small mammals seem to be attracted to it. It seems that no one can resist the call of candy corn. Wedge this Halloween treat into the split end of a trigger stick on your deadfall trap.
