Fun, twirly peppermint sticks, candy canes, and other refreshing candies are must-haves at Christmas, whether you’re using them to decorate the tree or create a sweet and tasty dessert table centerpiece. The smell and taste of peppermint has plenty of other benefits – including soothing nausea and cramps, reducing pain or itching, and fighting bacteria. A dish of peppermint candies adds a cheery touch to tables and desks, and rainbow-striped versions of the classic candy canes take the place of bows when tied with ribbon to wrapped gifts.
