Sweet Time Candy Canes With Gel Candy

Thisis going to be a quick review because I didn't eat any of the 2 ounce Sweet Time candy canes, they're too large and decorative.
The thing I like best about these Candy Canes with Gel Candy is their usefulness. They work as a candy cane then hold their own as an ornament, not too heavy to pull down the branches of a small spruce.

Candy Cane with Gel CandyThey come three to a pack, two with Christmas gummis and one plain, and can be found among the other canes and decorations at Walgreen's.
The Snowman and Santa canes will end up on top of two kids presents along with some kind of RC rodent and Twihard gear.
Hang them, gift them, eat them. If you do the latter let me know what they taste like—I think it's time to call on some guest bloggers anyway.

Plain Candy CaneSpeaking of other people writing about candy, I stumbled across On Motivation and Chocolate, tagline: In a World Where There's Chocolate, We Should Never Feel Dispair. If you're looking for prolific holiday candy reviews, this is the blog for you (as opposed to this one). It's authored by a motivational speaker, which explains the enthusiasm.
Safety Tip: Do not hang your candy canes too close to the center of the fireplace.

Melted candy cane
The beaded glob part was burnt and sour (formerly a Sour Patch Kids Candy Cane). Now that I think of it, the wrapper was still intact—how did that glob get on the hearth rug, what did I just eat? The cane shaped part was hollowed out and crunchy-chewy. I recommend pre-melted, that way you know you're not eating ornaments.

First I must apologize for being so far behind, blizzard, hubs home and underfoot, grandkids spent a night, and gingerbread houses have left me little time on the computer over the last few days.

So pretty! And how funny, what a great tip, lol.

Thanks so much for the shout out!!! Your blog cracks me up too! We need to get you to Candy Expo next year - have you been yet?

Hi Denise, I went for the first time last year and got lost in a loop around O'Hare. I think I aged ten years while stuck in morning traffic on the way to the Expo.
Maybe I'll run into you if I'm brave enough to try it again. Do you go to the luncheon?

I dunno, Jeanna. I think I'd eat the weird blob of strange looking candy ooze (although not ooze, that looks more like solidified ooze, lol)
