Quiz: What's Your Halloween Candy IQ?
Tootsie Caramel Apple Pops
If you’re contemplating which candy in the bowl is worth the splurge, a Tootsie Caramel Apple Pop might be the way to go. One benefit of choosing a lollipop over another type of candy is that it usually takes longer to eat — and will likely result in fewer return trips to the candy bowl. “This means more satisfaction for fewer calories and less sugar,” MacDonald says. But lollipops can do a number on your teeth, which is why dentists advise against sucking candies that bathe your pearly whites in sugar for long periods of time.
Although rinsing your mouth with a glass of water and following up with a good brushing is a smart move after eating anything sugary, it’s especially important after eating lollipops and other hard or sticky candies.
