Ginger Candy at David's Natural Market
David's Natural Market in Columbia sells these all-natural ginger chews in bulk. They're fiery with all of the flavor that comes from actual pieces of candied ginger. I actually prefer the flavor and the texture, which is almost like chewing gum but eventually melts in your mouth.
The Reed's candies are individually-wrapped, so they're great to stuff in a lunch or a purse. Ginger has anti-naseau properties, according to my medical expert, and it's a really adult flavor when you want a treat. Ask at David's or look for the bulk candy bins in the center of the store.
One thought: The candies are dusted with a white, flavorless powder. Don't be alarmed. I assume that it keeps the sticky candies from attaching to the wrapper, but it melts on your tongue and mars nothing along the way.
Roots in Clarksville sells Reed's Ginger Beer -- along with the company's seasonal spiced apple brew -- so it may sell these ginger chews as well.
