Does Chewing Quickly Count as a Cardio Work-out?

I had some left-over candy sitting in my desk today.  It's left-over from a PMS-filled day last week -- I'm sure you can relate.  This left-over candy has me in a quandary...caught between the "don't waste food" lectures I was given by my mom and the "get unhealthy choices out of your cabinets and cupboards
