Using sugar cane to sweeten up some treats dates back several thousand years. Before that, we can assume people probably really enjoyed some sweet fruits with a meal as dessert, but they had nothing on honest to goodness candy. There's something really special about a sugary, unhealthy confection that's full of chocolate or caramel or nougat or whatever else it is you crave when the mood strikes.
Sometimes those sweet tooth cravings are hard to resist. So much so that they're a lot like some other very strong cravings humans are known to give in to. And since sugar and sex both stimulate the pleasure centers of your brain, is there any surprise that the two of them could have so much in common?
The funny thing about candy is that the people who make it try to make it appealing to us by mixing all these fun ingredients and then packaging and advertising it in a way that makes us crave it even more. Part of that involves coming up with a fun and memorable name. And wouldn't you know it, a lot of those names can serve as naughty little double entendres. It's almost like they know! So which candy would you say is the most like you when it comes to sexy fun? What candy speaks to how your love life unfolds? Why not take our quiz and see!
