Surprise – Candy has Sugar

When I read the following article, I just shook my head. I suppose anything can be an excuse for a lawsuit, but it’s hard to fathom that anyone doesn’t know that candy has sugar. (Even so-called sugar-free candies rely heavily on sugar alcohols that have their own problems.) Perhaps the biggest issue for anyone wanting to get off sugars is self-deception and rationalization.

Sugar is all too readily available, and is often hidden under a variety of names meant to make it less obvious. For instance, many foods that once labeled high fructose corn syrup, aware of the bad reputation this hyper-sugar has these days, now simply label “corn solids” that’s corn syrup folks, and “evaporated cane juice” is sugar.
