Celebrating National Hard Candy Day On December 19th

If you’ve ever wondered why hard candy has a day dedicated to it, it’s because this type of confectionery is a classic favorite that never gets old. From adults to kids, everybody loves hard candy! Whether you enjoy the sweet and tangy flavor or the crunchy texture, there are so many reasons to love hard candy. Let’s take a look at some of these reasons in celebration of National Hard Candy Day on December 19th.

The Variety Of Flavors

One of the main reasons people are drawn to hard candy is because of its wide variety of flavors. You can find almost anything from traditional favorites like peppermint to exotic flavors like root beer float. There’s even a flavor for those who like their treats extra sour with the addition of tart ingredients like citric acid. No matter what your taste buds are craving, you can find something that satisfies them with hard candy!

The Long-Lasting Enjoyment

When you eat hard candy, you don’t have to worry about it melting away or going bad quickly. You can savor your treat for as long as you want since it takes longer than most other types of candies for your mouth to break down the sugar crystals that make up a piece of hard candy. Plus, if you need some quick energy, sucking on a piece of hard candy will do the trick since it takes longer for your body to digest than chocolate or gum does!

It Can Fight Bad Breath

Sucking on a piece of mint flavored hard candy is one way to fight bad breath and freshen up your mouth in between brushing and flossing sessions. Although not all flavors are as powerful at combating odors as minty varieties are, they still provide some relief from embarrassing situations caused by stinky breath! Furthermore, certain herbs used in making flavored candies have been found to help reduce inflammation and irritation in the mouth due to their antibacterial properties.

Whether you’re looking for something sweet or just want an energy boost during the day, there’s no better choice than a delicious piece of hard candy! With its variety of flavors and long-lasting enjoyment, along with its ability to help fight bad breath and reduce inflammation in the mouth – it’s no wonder National Hard Candy Day is celebrated every year! So go ahead and indulge yourself with a piece (or two) this December 19th – after all – how could anyone resist such a timeless treat?
