How many times do you stuff your mouth with chocolate? Have you got the habit of eating candies after mealtime or even when you’re caught in traffic? Individuals, young and old alike, have a sweet tooth. Its intensity differs from one person to another but generally, isn’t it really hard to turn down your favorite piece of candy? Candies are sweet treats that everybody seems to reward themselves with after an accomplishment, a long and tiring day at work, or for the sake of the children, a take home present that parents would usually hand to them. A number of groups across the globe have astutely taken up various ways to create candies, both in the forms of delectable chocolate candy bars and the saltwater taffy which popularly hit the market stands a couple of years back.

Here’s a known fact. The US military assigns soldiers to pack candy bars as part of their mission. It is done for a very obvious reason-sugar is known to amplify a person’s energy. The worn-out soldiers can hence chew on some candy to keep them up and about for a couple of hours more in order to fulfill their duties. Hershey’s and other candy manufacturers have likewise engaged in the generation of special formulations meant for military use. As expected, these sweet treats are a blend of short-term nutrients which supplies sugar to the body to keep it attentive yet without leaving out the luscious chocolaty taste that consumers go after.

Chocolates are sometimes used as decorations on cake and cupcakes. One innovation that's getting popular these days is the "Chocolate Plastic". This concoction is tasty and highly flexible because it is fundamentally a chocolate paste that can be prepared easily and can be used as a decoration on certain food items like cakes and other pastries. An added use about this is that it can be a wrapper for presents and thus, it makes wrapping presents and accepting gift wrapped presents more fun.

The Japanese people have a unique way of adding flavors to candies and chocolates. There's a brand that's very popular in Japan because of its name being pronounced similarly to a good luck charm used by students. This brand is usually given as a gift during exams, crunch times or during hell days when one has to meet a stringent project deadline. It is also given a good luck gift for those who are taking college entrance tests. Because green tea is famous in Japan, tea-flavored candies are also ubiquitous. There's also this wasabi-flavored candy, perfect for those with adventurous spirit.

Candies tend to have a rainbow of flavors. Everything from various takes on mint to different varieties of chocolate will end up represented on candy. However, in general, most candy companies have the good sense not to flavor a sweetened treat after something that is generally not sweet. Sometimes, though, products like bacon-flavored mints manage to come through. This is one of those candy flavors that, like Japanese green tea or sushi candy, are likely to confuse people. Still, despite how wrong it may sound to the normal person, there is apparently a market out there for bacon-flavored mints.

Candy has a long history as a familiar food treat available in a large varieties. Candy is also referred to as sweets or confectionery.
