"Is it safe?"
"Is what safe?"
"You have...quite a cavity here."
"Is it safe--to eat delicious De Met's candies now?"
"Gosh, Doctor--it's always safe to eat De MaaaahHHHH"

Oh, sweet caramel, how we love you so.
Your sticky sweetness glues our teeth together
and removes our fillings with the deftness of a pair of pliers.

Your dentist probably owns stock in a candy corporation.

@Bill...I just got the reference to "Marathon Man"...a most excellent post. A good movie, never did read the book from which it derived. Might have to do it one of these days.
