Attitude Adjustments Jar
Yesterday I had a three-mini-Snickers morning. You can always tell my current stress level by the number of trips I make to the Attitude Adjustments jar where the candy resides. Yeah, yeah – I know. The “experts” say you’re not supposed to stress eat. But as a proud Candy Addict I feel it’s my duty to ignore that kind of crazy talk.

As I licked the last bit of chocolate from my fingers, it got me to thinking. What’s the best stress relief candy out there? I have several personal favorites that I use for different purposes. Here are 3 of my top stress relievers along with the particular ills they help cure.

Bit O
Bit O’ Honey: When I have one of those problems that’s going to take a long time to work through, a Bit O’ Honey is the ticket. These last forever, so I can just keep chewing away at one piece as I gnaw away at the problem I’m solving. I get my frustrations out with all the chomping, while the honey flavor sweetens my disposition. A Bit O’ Honey is also good for keeping my mouth too full to put my foot in it.

Gummi Worms
Gummi Bears and Gummi Worms: Say I have a very unladylike urge to wring someone’s neck. I address that need with a gummi candy. I can squish it, stretch it, tear it and before I know it I’ve gotten out my aggression and I’m just playing. By the way, to get the most out of your gummi worm origami attempts, read our article on the breaking point of gummi worms. In cases where I’m seriously pissed off, I am so sorry to admit that I enjoy biting the heads off the gummi bears. I swear, it’s very therapeutic, not to mention tasty.

Dark Chocolate Stack
Chocolate: Chocolate is a main food group in my universe. Whether my head’s about to explode or I’m just wearing my cranky pants, there’s a type of chocolate that can fix any problem. I don’t need much. In fact, small pieces are better because they just seem more fun to eat. I always keep some sort of chocolate on hand, just in case.

Of course I have other stress relief remedies, but these are some of the most reliable. One of the best things about being a Candy Addict is that I get to sweeten my disposition – literally – on a regular basis. Just the thought of all that yummy candy is enough to make me smile.

    I don’t normally use more than just chocolate as my number one stress reliever (could explain the need for new jeans, but I digress…).

    But now that you mention it, no matter what kind of mood I’m in, for some reason butterscotch disks make the world seem rosy again. Why are those little buggers so hard to find these days?

    I like Snickers because they’re pretty filling, and I just discovered how awesome Bit O’ Honey is. I have no idea where it’s been all my life.

    Fun post. Chocolate still is my favorite “go-to” candy for stress relief. Dark chocolate works better than milk, if only because it has less sugar and I feel less guilt about eating it!
