Christmas Journaling - Candy Canes

Like? Chew? or Throw Away?

I don't eat candy canes like I did when I was a kid and every year I continue to buy them - mainly for the kids.  I used to put them on the tree but got tired of that so I just keep them in a decorative container.  Last year I bought the fruity flavored candy canes by Life Savors (in addition to buying the peppermint ones).  I really enjoyed the Life Savors and will buy more this year.  The kids didn't even touch the peppermint ones.  As a matter of fact, back in August I finally threw them out.

I am not a huge fan of them either but do like the sweet ones a little better as well. No one eats them much here but they are so cute to decorate with.

We always buy one box every year. It is a tradition even though we aren't big fans. I put them in a cute mug I have and use them for a decoration.

I think they are pretty to decorate with, but really won't eat them. It's the same thing with the ribbon candy I remember as a child. My mother would set some out in a candy dish and it was so pretty just to look at, but didn't really like it much. :)
