    I am not a candy cane fan, so I pawn them off in someone else!

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Yup!  I even asked the lady at the store if they had the normal Peppermint or Cherry ones, she said that they just carried French Vanilla and Gingerbread!

    @MissBoPeep: lol, Pepperment or Cherry is normal to me.  The “new” kinds are not real candy canes to me!

    Although…I will admit that I also like the Blueberry ones 🙂  We used to get them as kids.

    @MissBoPeep:  I’m with you; peppermint IS the normal kind. Any other is just……wrong, lol.

    And yes, I eat them the proper way, as described by the OP.

    I crunch through the stick, then pop the curved part into my mouth like a retainer and suck. It sounds dirty, but that’s how I do it 😉

    I’m not a fan of the peppermint ones, but might have part of one from time to time.  I’m a fan of most of the gourmet ones, cherry, blueberry, I don’t remember all the fruity flavours.  I haven’t seen vanilla or gingerbread but they sound good too!

    I hated how pointy they got, I used to poke my mouth as a kid.  Now, I usually break off a small piece and suck on it like a hard candy.  Now worries about getting hair stuck to it or anything like that.

    Haha this is exactly how I eat my candy canes! Although I like the U shaped part! I remember when I was little I would pretend it was a retainer lol. Your office people are the weird candy cane eaters, not you!

    Never been much of a fan of candy canes. But I have to bite into them. They are just like hard candy to me and I can’t stand sucking on the candy.

    I try to start the way you described, OP, but usually I become impatient or distracted halfway through and end up just crunching the rest of it away!

    This just reminded me of how particularly fun it is to eat the rainbow candy canes…you know, the ones that turn your tongue a hundred shades of blue, yellow, and green.  I need to get some of those!!!
