October is finally here, and the decades-long debate regarding whether candy corn is the best or the worst candy on the market is raging on, and Bud Light is throwing their favorable opinion in the ring. On Tuesday, the famed brand, which specializes in “American-style light lager beer,” hilarious announced the launch of Candy Corn Bud Light Seltzer, which thankfully just seems to be a fun October prank.
Boasting a yellow, orange, and white can resembling the candy it is named after, Candy Corn Bud Light Seltzer is “a seltzer flavor literally everyone will love,” according to the brand, though not everyone seemed to agree. After the company shared the humorous image, dozens of comments poured in, proving that the candy corn debate is far from settled. Responding to the post, one person wrote, “I love y’all but I do not love this,” with another person adding, “you have gone too far.” However, a few people seemed to be a little more adventurous, with one person responding, “I’d try it! Can’t be worse than that one company that made a pretzel beer.” Somebody else declared that they will be “mad if this is a lie.”
