One of daughters labeled candy as "the fourth food group". She did love here candy and I am sure this assortment would make her mouth water. Sweets are a temptation to us all and the following is an example where taking some caused a problem.
1 Samuel 14:25-34 (WEB)
25) All the people came into the forest; and there was honey on the ground.
26) When the people had come to the forest, behold, the honey dropped: but no man put his hand to his mouth; for the people feared the oath.
27) But Jonathan didn’t hear when his father commanded the people with the oath: therefore he put forth the end of the rod who was in his hand, and dipped it in the honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth; and his eyes were enlightened.
28) Then one of the people answered, and said, “Your father directly commanded the people with an oath, saying, ‘Cursed is the man who eats food this day.’” The people were faint.
29) Then Jonathan said, “My father has troubled the land. Please look how my eyes have been enlightened, because I tasted a little of this honey.
30) How much more, if perhaps the people had eaten freely today of the spoil of their enemies which they found? For now has there been no great slaughter among the Philistines.”
31) They struck of the Philistines that day from Michmash to Aijalon. The people were very faint;
32) and the people flew on the spoil, and took sheep, and cattle, and calves, and killed them on the ground; and the people ate them with the blood.
33) Then they told Saul, saying, “Behold, the people are sinning against Yahweh, in that they eat meat with the blood.” He said, “You have dealt treacherously. Roll a large stone to me this day!”
34) Saul said, “Disperse yourselves among the people, and tell them, ‘Bring me here every man his ox, and every man his sheep, and kill them here, and eat; and don’t sin against Yahweh in eating meat with the blood.’” All the people brought every man his ox with him that night, and killed them there.
Saul was a leader given to rash decisions. Coupled with a lack of political insight and steadfastness of devotion to God, he didn't make a very good leader and eventually was removed. Jonathan his son seems to have been better than his father in many ways, especially in regards to David. In this instance he gives in to hunger (somehow it seems strange to think of honey as food) and once again shows his father's foolishness. Saul's poor decision led to Israel's eating meat with blood and eventually led to a great slaughter (a little later on in the chapter). Just goes to show you that CANDY IS GOOD FOOD!!!
