In British English, sweet, little things you eat like chocolates and toffees are known as sweets. The correct answers: drag the question in. Your word of the week.
What is the shelf life of sweets? Storing candies between three and seven years at room temperature is fine. Refrigerate after opening and before adding to a food supply. Store them in an airtight container.
Where can you buy sweets and other desserts? Sweets can be bought in any grocery store, discount store, or from some supermarkets and bakeshops (called bake shops in British English). Some specialty stores specialize in selling baked desserts. Visit the Internet to buy your favorite sweets and see what is available.
What’s the difference between hard candy and sugary sweets? Hard candy is not rolled, molded, or packed. It is just pieces of sugar with no fillings that are usually coated with a sweetener. Some examples include sugar snap Peanut Butter Balls and candy corn. Turn turtle candy has a hard candy coating but it has a “turn turtle” figure inside it.
What is the difference between sugar candies and sugar gum? Sugar candy is made from manufactured sugar. Soft candy is made from natural sugar. Gum comes from the sap of trees.
Why do some people like sugar candies and others prefer to have hard candy? There could be a psychological reason for this. One person might enjoy the taste of sugar than another. Also, sugar candy might give a person a high, while hard candy would bring a low feeling. It’s all up to you which one you prefer.
There is one major difference between the two – the nutritional value. Many health experts recommend getting more fiber and vitamins from sugar candies than from those made with real sugar. Some studies say that the artificial additives used to make up sugar reduce the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. They also say that sugar has more calories and less nutritional value than natural sweeteners, such as honey and Stevia. For best results, choose only those sweets that have a high nutritional value. You should also eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible.
Have you ever noticed that in some states, candy makers are required to list the caloric content of their candies? That’s because they know that young children can be enticed to eat them by its “apparent” flavor. Kids are more prone to developing illnesses related to sugar consumption, such as obesity, tooth decay, heart diseases, and diabetes. We’ve all heard about tragic stories about kids swallowing candy and choking themselves. In the United States, the problem is particularly serious because of the availability of low-cost candy in vending machines all over the country.
Recently in the United States, there have been reports of youths consuming sugary sweets, resulting in injuries and poisoning. One particular incident involved a young girl who was rushed to the hospital with severe burns after swallowing a chocolate candy at a New York City subway station. Another case involved a young boy who choked on a candy at a Florida mall. Fortunately, the state’s child obesity problem is so serious that state agencies and organizations have been working hard to raise awareness and promote efforts aimed at reducing it.
