There is a comical scene in "Chapter 54" (House of Cards, S05E02), roughly 3 minutes into the episode, in which Walter Doyle eats some candies and Seth Grayson expresses surprise. What was that Frank Underwood's associate eating?

  • I read that as "A lawyer ate some candles..."

  • @Criggie : There are those who would claim there is no difference between candy corn and candle wax. (I'm not one, at least for candy corn that hasn't been stored for months...) Sep 11, 2017 at 2:48
  • I know it doesn't look like it in the pictures but the lawyer actually ate souls.

Pretty sure that's candy corn, a common Halloween candy in the US (note that the episode indeed takes place during Halloween):

It's candy corn. The joke is that many people don't like candy corn.
