Why do people like candy?(read description before you give me answers!!)

So, I was just wondering why people like candy. I mean, it's bad for your teeth, your health, AND IT IS MADE WITH BUGS!! Yes, they use BUGS for coloring!!! I personally don't like candy. I am a healthy, picky, vegan teenage girl?

Sugar. Sugar is more addictive or equally addictive to drugs. And don't judge others for liking candy.

The reason people like candy is because in the very beginning of the human race, sugars (as well as fats) were very hard to come by, so humans (homo sapiens) developed a craving for sugary and fatty things so that we took advantage of them whenever they were available. Now, we have that same urge, but sugars and fats are plentiful and lead to obesity which in turn leads to early death.
Oh, and good for you that you are vegan. My Aunt and her family is, but I could never give See More▼

Yes but to die quicker youd need to eat a LOT daily. Keep it one little treat per day and ur quite fine if you like candy.

I just think candy is nice and sweet and sometimes it has attracting shapes and colourful packets to attract people. Anyways some people eat a small candy treat for energy like I eat a Snickers bar before I go windsurfing at 10am because it gives me energy. And I doubt it is made from bugs! I agree some colourings are not healthy and are chemical but bugs? If someone told you, they were joking. If you read, it might not be true, especially if it was off the internet.

They come in packets. They have diferent flavours and are usually spicy or sour and not sweet. They are verz flat and crispy and usually have some flavour powder on them and they are acctually thin cut potatoes fried in unhealthy oil with unhealthy flavour powders! They taste good but are SOOO much worse than anz candy!

I'm not sure why. Maybe because of the sweetness and flavours. I already knew about the bug thing. I went to Lanzarote and on this Natural Wonders tour the tour guide lady said about the red bugs used to make food colouring for sweets.

They are addictive and sweet, so most people get drawn to them. I am not as bug as a sweet fan as others since I feel sick after eating more than 6. I do like Ice-cream and most home made cakes, cookies and cupcakes! There are some helthier candies like candied nuts or candied orange peel that tast really good.

I love candy. I don't eat it alot, but I like sweet tarts, and Reeces cups. It can be bad for you if you eat it every single day in large amounts, but sugar actually reduces headaches and relieve stress o_O who knew?!?! I don't think they use bugs as the coloring, and if they do then hey, it's protein right? Even more of a reason to eat it (; and it's not bad for your teeth unless you don't brush twice a day for two minutes... Which I do, most of the time three minutes or more. See More▼
