It sounds like you're eating a lot of sugar.Those candies can be addictive, like chocolate! If you love the taste of ginger, why not buy fresh sliced ginger in a jar and eat it? You know the ginger that you get with a meal in Japanese restaurants? You can find that type of ginger, or similar types, in stores like whole foods, a health food store, or in Asian grocery stores for around $5 a jar usually. It can be pickled or sweet. Read the label and get the jar that lists the least amount of sugar content. We have a jar of this in the fridge and either eat it as a refreshing snack, after a meal, or use in cooking. There's also a company called The Ginger People that sells delicious sliced ginger in a jar. I hope this works for you.
