Do you like eating candy canes?

Peppermint is not a big flavor choice here. So most candy canes on the tree are really ornamental. However, I was told that if you want quick energy you should actually lick a candy cane and it will help. Never tried it though.

  • The scent of peppermint is an energizer - you'd get more of an "quick energy fix" by boiling some water and melting the candy cane in it and breathing in the smell - eating one will just give you a sugar rush and a crash a short time later.

    I'm not a huge fan of candy canes, ate too many when I was young! I don't buy them for the tree either, as we only have a 3tf tree!

  • Peppermint gives me a major headache so nope. I get the other flavors like Gobbstopper or Sweet-tart or Life Savers.

  • I'm not so big on the peppermint ones, but I'll eat a few of the flavored ones every year.
