A candy that eats away bad bacteria? This may sound too good to be true, but studies done by a Berlin-based firm suggest this has validity.

It also has the benefit of stimulating saliva flow, which is important to overall oral health. To learn more about this study, read here: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/269685.php.
