Hate to take your fun away (actually...no I'm don't...lol) but studies have shown that candy(sugar) does not make a child "hyper"(which I am sure is what you are alluding to).
Doing blind tests using sugared candy and non sugared candy where the parents and the children ALL thought that the kids were getting sugared candy found no difference in behaviour between the 2 groups. What it did find is that parents and children alike that "thought" the candy would increase hyperactivity, or cause the kids to "climb the walls" invariably those children would demonstrate increased activity regardless of which group they were in.
What CAN cause increased hyperactivity in children is the dyes used in certain candies for children that show alergies to those dyes.
