Candy Canes


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I get bored at my desk job I want to snack to fill the time. So, since the holidays are over and candy canes are marked down to around 50 cents a box, I stocked up. I let myself have a single 60 calorie or less candy cane every afternoon and since they take a while to eat (as long as you don't crunch them up!), it distracts me and satisfies the craving for sugar. Add a bottle of water and I'm good for the rest of the day until I get home.

Buy lots of flavors as a treat. Each day pick out a new flavor to try, or close your eyes and just 'grab one' for a little extra fun in your day.
