i just had to share this-
if you have a sweet tooth or have little ones, it's a definite read.
i'll opt for some fruit & wine...
pick your poison :)
Brach’s Candy Corn has more than a gram of sugar in every piece, and Red 3, which is used to color candy corn, has been given a "high concern" rating by the Environmental Working Group because it's a carcinogen.
Serving size: 19 pieces
36 grams of carbs
32 grams of sugar
Because of their gummy texture, Dots are very hard to get off your teeth. The longer sugar makes contact with tooth enamel, the higher the chance of decay. In addition, red and orange Dots get their coloring from Red 40, which has components that are suspected to cause cancer.
Serving size: 40 grams (10 or 11 dots)
33 grams of carbs
20 grams of sugar

Taffy treats like Now and Later stick aggressively to teeth, which increases the risk of tooth decay. Now and Laters also rate poorly when it comes to additives: the coloring Red 40, a carcinogen, is classified by the Environmental Working Group classifies as "high risk."
Serving size: 9 pieces
1 gram fat
29 grams of carbs
24 grams of sugar
One roll of the powdery dry original Necco Wafers packs more sugar than is recommended for an entire day. The wafers are colored with Red 40, Red 3 and Yellow 6—carcinogens that are listed with "some concern" or higher by the Environmental Working Group.

56 grams of carbs
55 grams of sugar
Those rainbow hues are dazzling, but the hues in Twizzler Twists come courtesy of Red 40and Yellow 6, both of which have a degree of cancer risk.
Serving size: 45 grams (5 pieces)
36 grams of carbs
19 grams of sugar
Sour candies are very damaging to tooth enamel, and because taffy like Laffy Taffy sticks to your teeth, it's double trouble. (A pH of 2.5 is very hard on your mouth.) In addition, the Environmental Working Group has concerns about the Red 40 and Yellow 6.
