Candy Quotes To Sweeten Up Your Day

If you are wondering what it is about candy that people love, the answer is pretty obvious – it’s the sweet taste, as you can see from all the sweet references in these candy quotes!

People seem to either really love candy or it’s just not their thing.

My grandpa was certainly a candy man.

There was always some in a dish around the house, and he carried Werther’s Originals everywhere he went.

Now, I do not love candy.

In fact, I barely eat any.

I much prefer desserts!

The sweetness obviously comes from the sugar used to make the candy, and the reason people like candy so much is because of how sugar affects the brain.

A study published by PLoS One found sweet foods have drug-like effects in the reward center of the brain and sugar can be more addictive than cocaine!

It is no wonder that overeating and craving sweet foods is a problem facing our society.

Especially, because excess sugar impairs our cognitive skills, memory, and our self-control.

Does this mean you should never have hard candy, chocolate bars, or some other confection ever again?

Only you can answer that, but before you do, keep reading through these candy quotes, and see what other ways sugar affects your overall health.

Which of these candy quotes is your favorite?

In a study published in 2014 in JAMA Internal Medicine, Dr. Hu and his colleagues conducted a 15-year study, which found an association between a high-sugar diet and an increased risk of dying from heart disease.

Sugar is also bad for the liver, blood pressure, and increases inflammation.

Even knowing this, people continue to eat added sugar because it tastes good and it gets those reward centers going.

Of course, there are many forms of sugar, and some of it is naturally found in whole foods, like fruit and vegetables.

And that sugar is good for you, which begs the question of how much of a person’s sugar consumption comes from candy.

According to the US Census Bureau, the average American consumes 22 pounds of candy each year.

To put this in a little perspective, a bag of fun-size Snickers is 10.59 ounces, so the average person buys and eats a little over 33 bags a year.

What do you think is candy a guilty treat and a wonderfully sweet way to break up your day?

Or is it a health crisis wrapped in a little fun-size wrapper?
