If you have a clicking jaw like me, stay away from candy canes! I sort of froze up the right side of my jaw yesterday crunching down on an irresistible bite of peppermint. My jaw ached all day. A clicking jaw doesn’t necessarily mean you will have serious TMJ trouble later, but it is still wiser not to needlessly tempt the Gods of the Jaw with jawbreakers or peppermint candy canes no matter how deliciously they may dissolve in your mouth after nutcrackering your teeth.
