I don't eat lot of candies, but i am agree with virginie : for me the best candies are the acid one Cool

For the sugar tax, this is clearly not a good option in my opinion. Candies are known to not be the healthiest food ever, but i think it's like alcohol or coffee : you have to be careful about your consumption.

For me, prevention is more effective than a tax to help children to fight against obesity sunny

The tax on the candy you're talking about really makes me think of the trick set up by the university restaurant to limit our consumption of fried! Twisted Evil The idea is the same, if you want eat some fries/chips you must pay more!

Like you guys I think candies aren't the main cause of obesity, because for example we are more exposed to sodas at home that candy...and I think that I have never seen an advertising for candy except for chewings gum whether on television or on billboards! I believe it's forbidden!

As for creating more natural candy that Celine talks about, I don't really know the subject, but it already exists as for caramels or berlingot (local products) but I don't know if we can realize the whole sweets which are sold today without the addition of chemical products!

Good idea Céline ! Wink
I am also for the fight against obesity. But I am agaisnt the idea of ​​the sugar tax. Because sweets are mainly intended for children. So by extension, this tax will target children. But the impact of this tax on children will be minimal, because children do not have necessarily the notion of money. So they will keep buying their favorite candies, no matter what the price. And I do not think it's good to charge children. But that is just my opinion Wink

Also, I want to talk about a sweet concept that I found is funny : Jelly Belly Bean Boozled. The Jelly Belly Beans Boozled are American sweets with very surprising tastes like vomit, stinky socks... The rule of the game is simple: you have one chance of two to drawing on a good taste or taste not good. And no way to distinguish them without tasting them. Be careful, this game can disgust you candy Wink
Have a good day !

Please Marceline, don't speak about Jelly Belly Beans Boozled !! I HATE IT !
Last year my english teacher traumatized me with these candies. She had an enormous box of Jelly Belly Beans and when we made a mistake of english, she gave us one jelly Belly Beans. In each of my mistakes i had the chance to have the most digusting tastes .... So now i can't eat any more Jelly Belly Beans No pale

Laughing Sounds like my type of teacher.
