Candy Canes Fight Germs, Settle Stomachs. New studies on peppermint, the key flavoring in traditional candy canes, reveal the herb may do everything from kill germs to treat digestive troubles. I like to melt my candy canes in cups of hot chocolate. Makes for a tasty treat. How do you like yours? http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/12/24/candy-canes-germs.html

I have never really been that fond of the taste of peppermint. But when I had to use peppermint cough drops I also noticed they helped my toothache. But I didn't like them and finally got some Cherry flavored Halls. My husband loved peppermint candy of all kinds. He will like that it will help his stomach.Thanks for the link so I could read more about what peppermint can do.. I do by peppermint flavoring oil for candy I wonder if it will work?

This year, for the first year since her birth, I have not decorated the Christmas tree with real candy canes. Therefore, I don't have a big load of them to eat through... however, next year perhaps we will try many cups of hot peppermint coco.

Yes, peppermint has many marvellous qualities. I have a peppermin plant growing outside of my front door and I often pick some leaves and simmer them in water and then sstrain and serve. No milk and just a little sugar. It does cure many upset stomaches due to all kinds of ailments - even eating too much over the Christmas season. I can thoroughly recommend peppermint tea. I just love it. Blessings

I do like the occasional candy cane. I normally just suck on mine. The kids like to bit theirs. My grandfather used to suck on those starlight mints when his stomach hurt.

I don't really care for candy canes all that well. I don't like peppermint. I like spearamint and I like normal mint but I have never liked peppermint. I bought my kids watermelon flavored candy canes as my daughter does not like the peppermint ones either they get to hot for her.

I do enjoy candy canes - I've only eaten them by themselves, I've never tried them in hot cocoa, but it sounds yummy!
