“It’s slowed down a bit now,” Strassman said. “It was really crazy last week. We are currently burning about 15 pounds a day. ”
On NPR, Morning Edition presenter Scott Detrow said, “Say you’re joking or treating and someone gives you sausage instead of candy, you’d be skeptical. And yet Halloween is the star of the season this year. “Themed sausages. It’s called the Ghost at Toberfest, and it has pork, beer and sweet corn. You can buy this treat at Jennifer Street Market in Madison, Wisconsin.”
Strassman said the store has also heard from Access Hollywood and The Drew Barrymore Show, but has yet to see any of those programs.
The ghosts of Toberfest will be available during the first week of November, he said.
The pumpkin sauces that are also popular in the market are limited, according to Strassmann, as he only had enough seasoning for £ 25, or about 100, this year. He also prepares the traditional Oktoberfest with sauerkraut and onions.
But, according to Strassmann, the Toberfest “ghosts” have captured the public imagination, probably because so many people don’t like sweet corn.
“This has become very controversial,” he said. “Candy corn is something you love or hate.”
