Willy Wonka tried this before, didn't he?

Candy corn, the sticky-sweet triangle-shaped confection, is among the most reviled (or beloved, depending on your personal preferences) Halloween candies, but this year, candy corn may introduce some outrage to another holiday: Thanksgiving.

In true 2020 fashion, Brach's just released a new Turkey Dinner Candy Corn. It's like Thanksgiving dinner, but without the cooking, cleanup, and shopping — or turkey, dressing, and green bean casserole, for that matter.

Indeed, all the classic Thanksgiving dishes are here. Mariah Havens, Senior Brand Manager, Seasonal Marketing for Ferrara told Allrecipes, the collection contains "a full-course meal of traditional Thanksgiving favorites. From roasted turkey, green beans and stuffing to ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie, our new Turkey Dinner offering is the perfect mix to welcome fall and celebrate the season with family and friends."

The multi-hued candies are color coded to match each dish, so hopefully you won't be guessing if you're eating a slice of turkey or finishing off the "meal" with a slice of sweet potato pie.

Though we're still a few months from Turkey Day itself, these candies are already rolling out to Walgreens nationwide, and they're selling for $2.79 per 12-ounce bag. They're also available on Amazon, but for a steeper price tag, about $23 for two bags. They'll be available through the entire holiday season.

This isn't Brach's first out-of-the-box flavor creation. In fact, they're known for their creative candy corn ideas. Last year alone, they released Mermaid Fruity Corn and Pumpkin Pie Candy Corn to name a few.

And with the introduction of their Turkey Dinner Candy Corn, Brach's joins brands like Pringles, who last year introduced a Thanksgiving dinner-inspired trio of chips, and Christmas tinner, which is, yes, a tin can filled with all the components of Christmas dinner.
