Scientist does study.
Journalist reports on study.
Biblical conservative attacks study based on journalist's report.
Sound familiar?

I want to go into the boobs industry, then I can be "Big Boobs".

Actually the language nut in me is fascinated that the word big can also mean evil.

bungle_jr: i got hooked on haribo peach slices while stationed in germany...you know the kind that are covered in big crystals of sugar...but they're SOOOOOO stinkin' good that i'd eat a whole bag in one sitting! i would jokingly justify this by saying it was my fruit intake for the day.

/jokingly
//no 1 thing will make you fat, but the wrong things over and over will
///fat


Yeah...for awhile I was hooked on the Ritter Sport bars. For some reason it was really easy to eat the entire thing in one sitting...and then there are so many different kinds that it's easy to do over and over...

AngryTeacher: Awesome! Now I can eat three Snickers for lunch!


I did that once in high school, only they were Three Muskateers. Until that day, I'd never before gotten sick because of candy.

...so, CSB... candy scientist lady is my friend and former roommate.  Going to visit her is magical because she raids their massive candy closet for me, so I can get a fill of all the sweet, sweet fruity-chewy food group that I so desire.

/note they say "in moderation"
//not "eat all the candy all the time"

Those aren't candy bars.  They're candy bar-like treats.

tommyl66: You get them on Halloween, they're called Bit O'Honey, Necco Wafers and candy corn.

Candy corn is a chocolate cake personally baked by Kate Upton compared to circus peanuts.


Circus peanuts are an abomination.  A crime against society.  I would see their inventor's head upon a pike.

INeedAName: This just in, people who eat large amounts of candy consume other unhealthy food that lead to weight gain.


While true, it is also that they looked at the frequency at which candy was consumed. If I eat 2 candybars a week at 9pm on monday and thursday that would be the same frequency as a person eating 2 bags of candybars at the same time.

One of those is likely to get fat, the other isn't. They need a redo for quantity, but that wouldn't fit the narrative they are trying to build.

I find this article funny because I am extremely skinny and I mostly eat candy and sugary drinks all day. I dont eat much "real" food except when I prepare my dinner every night.Anyone who knows how calories interact with your body knows full well how true the article is.

Sugar is not the problem, not even close.
