Just a thought - is it possible that you really want the candies because you have dry mouth? It might be worthwhile talking to your doctor or dentist to see if this is a problem for you, that you haven't recognized because you've been "treating" it with the candies.
I have this problem occasionally, caused by allergies, and there are some mouthwashes and doctor-recommended lozenges that can help with it. Drinking a ton of water also helps, and they may have some dietary recommendations to help as well.
If you have allergies, though, be careful of the ingredients on the mouthwashes and lozenges. All of them that I found contain aloe, which is one of my worst allergies!
My dentist also mentioned to me once that a lot of people don't realize that they start consuming more candies when they have some cavities starting in their teeth or gingivitis starting. These can cause an odd taste in the mouth. Most folks don't realize that there is a cause, or may not even consciously recognize that there is an odd taste in their mouth - they just start reaching for candies more often as this gets more saliva going and masks the taste.
Good luck in figuring it out!
Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
