Finding the Best Candy Cane Spoons: Our Tests

Let’s talk spoons made of candy canes. 

First, a quick definition: when we refer to candy cane spoons, we mean candy canes that are shaped like spoons. These are NOT plastic spoons that are coated with peppermint.

Candy cane spoons are designed to be stirred into hot chocolate (or coffee) where they melt for peppermint flavor. Or as a table decoration. Or as part of a festive gift basket.

To test these spoons, we first brewed up some hot chocolate:

Ok, it didn’t look that pretty. But you get the idea.

Then we tried the spoons by stirring them into hot chocolate and tasting the result. Here are the winners:

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
