Cotton candy candy pops and cotton candy candies have always been the same: a sweet, comforting treat made with a little cotton candy in a bowl of batter.
That’s why we all love them, right?
Well, not so much anymore.
According to a new study published in PLOS ONE, a new class of cotton candy popsicle popsicles are much less sweet, less nutritious and less healthy than we thought.
“This is a really exciting finding,” said lead author Andrea Schutz, an assistant professor of food science and nutrition at the University of New Mexico.
“We wanted to know whether there are specific health risks associated with these cotton candy popicles.”
In fact, they are so much healthier than our typical cotton candy treat, Schutz said.
Crispy treats like these may be more beneficial than those made with plain cotton candy, Schulz said.
“This is the first time we’ve found a specific way to make a cotton candy poutine, which is why I’m really excited about this,” she said.
The researchers tested 12 varieties of cotton candies and found that all of them were significantly less sweet than average.
Some were even significantly less nutritious.
They were also more healthy than other cotton candy treats, the researchers reported.
They had a low sugar content and were also less likely to contain sugar, starch and salt, Schatz said.
These are not the first studies to find these differences.
Earlier studies found similar results.
They have also been found in lab studies.
And studies have shown that these sugar-free treats are better for people who are overweight, obese and diabetic.
Candy makers are scrambling to figure out how to incorporate these new findings into their products.
A company called CocoCandy announced in October that it is going to stop using cotton candy as a sugar substitute in all its flavors.
The company also announced it is planning to launch a new line of flavored cotton candy bars in November.
This isn’t the first study to find that cotton candy is not the healthiest way to consume sugar.
In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned using sugar in a number of products.
So what is going on?
Why is cotton candy healthier than regular sugar?
The sugar industry, of course, is trying to defend its business practices.
Cotton candy makers have argued that their products are healthier than plain sugar and that it’s a healthier way to eat.
The FDA and the sugar industry have also claimed that sugar isn’t a “sugar” and that the FDA has no authority to regulate its consumption.
But it’s important to remember that there is no scientific evidence to support this claim, said Melissa DeLuca, an associate professor of nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis who wasn’t involved in the study.
