If you have worn braces or know someone who wears braces, you are painfully aware that any sticky, hard, chewy or crunchy foods should be limited or avoided. According to The American Association of Orthodontics those of you donning braces should avoid caramel, nuts, licorice, jelly beans, hard pretzels, bubble gum, candy corn, and lollipops.
But alas my friends out there in candy land who have a sweet tooth – you do not have to go without, because, rather than depriving yourselves, I went on a quest to find candies that will satisfy your sweet cravings.
