Dentistís Warning: Milk Duds will remove braces! I have loved the sweet caramel chocolate candies for as long as I can remember. My first memory of these candies is when I bit into one I realized it had a hard crunch in the center. I took it out of my mouth for further examination and realized my tooth was embedded in the caramel center. The Milk Dud and tooth went under my pillow. The tooth fairy should have left me another box of the candies with a note that reads "Iíll get rich!"
This was only the start of the Milk Duds blame game. I received my first set of braces with the warning of not eating caramel. Of course my precious Milk Duds did not pertain to that warning, in my mind! At the movies I defiantly got my box of Milk Duds and started eating. Before the movie even started I realized a couple of my braceís brackets were missing and had to be taken to the dentist for their return.
I was told specifically not to eat Milk Duds at this point, but yet again, I wasnít going to stop eating the one love a child had. Two more trips to the dentist were associated with Milk Duds vs. braces. The day I got my braces off (3 agonizing years later of careful secret Milk Dud eating) I received a box of Milk Duds from my dentist and with his permission I broke the seal. To this day, every time I eat Milk Duds I remember the dentistís warning: Milk Duds will remove braces! ~ Erika from North Carolina
