Candy Swap

Ever wonder why it’s called candy corn? 🤔

Candy corn is actually made up of a dozen ingredients: Four different kinds of sweeteners, including sugar, corn syrup, dextrose, and honey, but also the food dyes Yellow 6, Yellow 5, and Red 3, lab-made ingredients that are often vilified for questionable side effects. It provides approximately zero nutritional value. Although 19 candies serve up 140 calories (that’s 7.5 calories per kernel, and all carbs)

Here’s a healthier swap:


In a clear glass,
1st add chunked pineapple (fresh, frozen or canned)
Then mandarin orange segments (fresh or canned)
Top with a little whipped cream
