A Spoonful of Sugar

Mary Poppins knew what she was talking about when she advocated adding a spoonful of sugar to help the "medicine go down."  The sweetness of sugar is pleasing to the taste buds and makes otherwise unpleasant tasting food, beverages, and medicines taste better. But you must use sugar with caution, too much of the sweet stuff can wreak havoc and cause weight gain, tooth decay, and illness.

The same principle applies to Sugar Babies, in particular the candy and the people. Too much of a good thing can be bad for you.

Sugar Babies are a delicious bite-sized chocolate covered candy. They come in a chewy caramel or caramel apple flavor. Many people enjoy eating Sugar Babies candies while at the movie theater, at home, or anywhere. They come in a bright yellow and red package or box which is easily recognizable as the Sugar Babies brand.

The Sugar Babies candy was introduced in America in 1935 by the James O. Welch Company. In 1963, the company was sold to the National Biscuit Company (Kraft Foods) and eventually sold to Tootsie Roll Industries in 1993.

Sugar Babies are delicious but if you eat too much of the sweet sugary candy you'll probably end-up with a mouth full of cavities. So, unless you want to help your dentist purchase a mansion, don't overload on the Sugar Babies candy.

There is another type of sugar baby that may appear to be sweet but can be very cunning and sly. A sugar baby often describes a young female or male who is financially cared for by a non-relative in exchange for emotional and physical companionship. The person taking care of the sugar baby is usually referred to as a "Sugar Daddy" or "Sugar Mama." Sugar babies often receive lavish gifts which can include cars, homes, and paying off the sugar baby's credit and school debt.

Many in society believe the sugar daddy/baby relationship is just a facade for prostitution. The majority of these relationships do not last a long time for various reasons. Sometimes the sugar daddy wants a new, younger baby or perhaps the sugar baby has found a wealthier sugar daddy. Many times these relationships end because the sugar daddy or mama is married and their spouse finds out about the extramarital relationship. In addition, many marriages have been broken and innocent lives adversely affected because of these relationships. Although a small percentage may result in marriage, that is atypical of a sugar baby relationship.
