Welcome back for another day of #Blogmas. Today IS #Blogmas Day #7. I can’t believe a whole week has passed. I hope you’ve been enjoying Blogmas? Today continues the best/worst of something series (Christmas Edition). If you missed days 1-5 you can click the links here.
TROLLI SOUR BRITE HOLIDAY CANDY CANES
PER 1 PIECE: 50 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 20 mg sodium, 13 g carbs (0 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 0 g protein
WARHEADS SUPER SOUR CANDY CANES
PER 1 PIECE: 50 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 45 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (0 g fiber, 8 g sugar), 0 g protein
Although both Trolli’s and Warhead’s sour canes have the lowest calorie and sugar contents of their contenders, they are packed with artificial flavors and color dyes. Not that this is too shocking, considering each varieties’ neon stripes.
HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE MINT CANES
PER 1 PIECE: 60 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 10 mg sodium, 15 g carbs (0 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 0 g protein
Don’t be fooled by this cane’s name–mint and chocolate aren’t in their list of ingredients. Fake flavors along with added sugars, 11 grams of sugar and a slew of artificial colors are what give this one their superficial appeal.
JELLY BELLY GOURMET CANDY CANES
PER 1 PIECE: 60 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 0 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (0 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 0 g protein
These Jelly Bean “Gourmet” Candy Canes come in three fruity flavors: watermelon, tutti-fruitti and blueberry. And just like the jellies, they’re artificially flavored sugar with crunch instead of chew.
WELCH’S CANDY CANES
PER 1 PIECE: 60 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 0 mg sodium, 15 g carbs (0 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 0 g protein
While Welch’s 100% Grape Juice may be made from the real thing (aka Concord grapes), their concord grape flavored candy canes are not. And the same goes for the raspberry and white grape peach flavors. With 12 grams of sugar and a laundry list of manmade chemicals, these candy canes are almost the worst.
THE #1 WORST CHRISTMAS CANDY CANE IS… FANCY PICKLE CANDY CANES
PER 40 G: 75 calories, 0 g fat, 15 g sugar (all other nutritionals unavailable)
Apparently, Pickle Candy Canes is a thing and with 75 calories and 15 grams of sugar per cane, these are your worst option. However, I’m guessing this wasn’t your first Christmas candy choice anyways.
