Halloween candy -- The good, the bad and the tooth decayingPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- When it comes to Halloween, most of us just buy the bags of candy that are on sale. But dentists say the differences between good candy and bad candy just might surprise you. Dr. Richard Simonsen breaks it down. He says taffy and hard candies are bad because they stick to your teeth and stay in your mouth longer than other candies. Peanut-butter cups, candy-covered chocolate, sugar sticks and gummies are better choices for your kids' (and your) teeth.
