Candy canes a Pain in my butt

So I'm ​super OCD about my kids eating any kind of hard candy and chewing it up. It's so bad for their teeth and bad teeth run in our families so I do everything possible for their teeth to not turn out like ours. But its Christmas time and with Christmas comes candy canes. I tell them to just suck on them but it doesn't always work, they end up chewing them anyways. Any suggestions on how to make them stop?

    You could tell them that if they chew on there candy canes they could lose teeth.
    Thats a good idea cause they are all about the hot chocolate :)
