The Arrival of Candy-Man

By: Candy Favorites

How frequently do you stuff your mouth with chocolate? Have you got the practice of taking in candies after meal or even when you’re caught in traffic? People today, 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.

Various types of candy - chocolate in particular - have also been used as decorations. This is primarily done on cakes and other items meant to be consumed, never on anything that’s supposed to last long and see regular use. One particularly interesting shift is “chocolate plastic.” This delicious and highly versatile product is essentially a chocolate paste that can be easily made and can be used to decorate cakes and other pastries. It has also seen use for wrapping presents and packages, turning something people normally tear off and throw away into something that could be just as interesting as what is inside.

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.

The candy market is a host to countless flavors. An average person may find the wasabi-flavored candy a total turn off, but its existence is undeniable. In fact, the bacon-flavored mints and sushi candies are also being marketed these days! Gone are the days when only the mint, chocolate, and sweetened flavors were known and appreciated by the consumers. Today’s market has a lot more to offer, by the way. Now, who says that innovation can’t be applied to the candy industry?
