This all sounds pretty, well, sweet, but we had to ask: Health Museum? Candy? Something on candy, why would we do such a thing? says Pullin, laughing. He assures us Candy Unwrapped explores the sweet and sour sides to treating yourself. Throughout the exhibits run, the museum will offer educational programs that will also be fun, but theyll help people broaden their understanding of how they can improve their own nutrition and fitness. Topics such as obesity and diabetes will be discussed, but isnt it a little mean to throw candy in our faces and then talk about the unhealthy side effects? In a way, its a teaser strategy, Pullin says. If no one wants to be teased they dont have to be, but sometimes thats a great door opener.
